Zev Technologies brings more options to Gen 5 Glock owners, expanding slide options to offer new Gen 5 designs with the Orion and Omen slides.

The Orion and Omen are created from a single billet of 17-4 stainless steel and created to Zev’s tight tolerances. The slides weigh less than stock slides, which Zev says reduces fatigue on the slide as well as improving follow-up shot placement. Both slides are compatible with Trijicon RMRs and boast threaded post optic cuts and RMR adapter plates pre-installed. The Orion and Omen are available in Black DLC or Titanium Gray.

The Orion utilizes a futuristic style offering a comprehensive, non-slip grip. The Orion’s patterns offers a greater recessed surface which grants a better grip for un-gloved hands. The Omen delivers a minimalistic style, providing angled side and top serrations with front windows. This construction is reduces slide weight while also introducing a sleek look to the slide.

“For those looking to upgrade their Gen5 G17 Glock slide, the wait is over,” Zev Technologies said in a news release. “Zev Technologies, known for creating the market for Glock upgrades, has unveiled their two newest slide designs, named the Orion and the Omen.”

Though the Orion and Omen initially ships for the Gen 5 Glock 17, the slides will also be available for the Glock 19, 17 and 34 in Gen 3, 4 and 5 models soon. The Orion and Omen for the Gen 5 Glock 17 is available now through Zev Technologies with a MSRP of $525.
