New Craighead OZ9 Coming 6/15 from ZEV Technologies
Within the design elements of Craighead’s signature OZ9. Christian pays tribute to the significance of the number 22 in his life. Some of these elements are laced in mystique and others are out in the open, like the slide serrations being cut at 22 degrees and at a depth of 22 thousandths. Also, take note of the CC logo on one side and the modified Craighead Blackbeard logo on the other.
The Craighead OZ9 is based on a standard OZ9 Compact slide with a ZEV FDE X grip. The pistol features an optics cut (RMR), removable magwell, aforementioned ZEV X grip, ZEV pro trigger system, and a very distinct compensator. Each gun comes like this standard and the muzzle is threaded with 1/2×28 so that a suppressor can be attached if desired. According to Christian Craighead, everything on the pistol has a purpose and is not accidental.
Christian Craighead joined the British Army as a sixteen-year-old, initially serving in the Parachute Regiment and Pathfinder Platoon. He was eventually selected for the British Army’s tier-one SMU, known for covert reconnaissance, counter-terrorism, and hostage rescue. During his time with this unit, he deployed on operations several times, also making his name as a counter-terrorism instructor. In 2019, Craighead was decorated for gallantry after confronting a major terrorist attack. In 2020, he retired from the army after twenty-eight years of active service.
