ZEV Technologies, the Oxnard-based manufacturer of Glock performance parts, has announced the addition of Match Grade drop-in barrels to their lineup.  Currently available now though their recently upgraded website, the barrels will be available in Burnt Bronze, Black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) and Raw Stainless Steel. They are currently available for G19, G17 and G34 with more on the way.


ZEV advises the barrels, which have extremely tight tolerances, are,

“…manufactured with pre-hardened chromium stainless steel (416R); originally designed for use in Match-Grade rifle barrels. This material provides high tensile strength and toughness to withstand typical chamber pressures while still being greatly corrosion resistant.”


They further say,

“ZEV Match-Grade barrel bores are some of the most precise in the industry. Every barrel is double honed (rough and finish) until a minimum surface finish of 16 RA is reached. During this process the barrels are held to a final dimension of +/- 0.0002” for consistency and accuracy.”

Each barrel is cut, rifled and inspected for groove dimensions and broach finish. Specs are:

  •        416R Gun Barrel Quality Stainless Steel
  •        Match Grade drop in barrel
  •        Final dimension of +/- 0.0002” for consistency and accuracy
  •        SAAMI spec. Match chambers
  •        Proprietary twist rate
