    Seems like they both could gain tremendously by that merger.

    I heard this rumor awhile ago, honestly surprised it actually happened. Looking forward to seeing where this takes both companies.

    ZEV and Mega Merger

    Big news for ZEV. For Mega too I'm sure.
    I wonder if this is MEGA diversifying in what is a saturated AR market.

    More likely Mega picking up an good entry into the Glock world.

    It is difficult for AR brands to get into the pistol world.

    I noticed that Zev had taken over Mega's IG account. You can't tag Mega anymore. I stopped following them because it's 80% Zev pistol pics (and I don't like their style). Is Mega changing its name to Zev now too?

    We talked to ZEV awhile back. They are keeping the Mega brand, but about a month ago merged all social media accounts to just ZEV. I don't think this is a good move personally, especially if they plan on keeping the Mega name/brand out there... precisely because of the reason you just stated. Their pictures are mostly of their pistols, and any rifle shots I've seen are with the pistols...but then again I'm not the manager of a multi-million dollar entity, so I'll just sit back and enjoy my Mega Rifles and ZEV pistols.

    Guess they changed their mind huh? Why would you 86 the Mega name when it was just a merger. I wont be buying them anymore. Way to take something that works and fuck it up. Maybe they can write " ZEV- formerly known as Mega" On the new lowers. Its shit like that that pisses me off.

    Did ZEV buy MEGA? I thought it was the other way around. Surprised ZEV had that kind of capital.
