Last week, we reported ZRODELTA acquired War Sport, in doing so the company increased manufacturing capabilities and completely dissolved the War Sport brand. Clint Walker alluded to a new product release as being what “many will consider to be the most innovative, disruptive product at SHOT Show this year.”

Walker was referring to the ZRODELTA Genesis Z9 modular pistol. ZRODELTA says the Genesis Z9 is “the world's first completely modular pistol that will allow user to convert from compact to a full long slide race gun in seconds thanks to its Patent Pending Design.”

Currently, the price has yet to be announced. But, limited quantities of the Genesis Z9 are available immediately. Production models are expected to ship at the end of 2018 Q2, and ZRODELTA boasts the ability to deliver 2,000 complete pistols per month once production models start shipping.

“The Genesis is emblematic of a new perspective at ZRODELTA, one that seeks to develop the pinnacle of what a striker-fired pistol can be, and ought to be.

The depth and breadth of our property surrounding its utility is truly groundbreaking.” – Pat Harrigan
