History of CZ
In an effort to keep military production plants from falling into the hands of Nazi forces, state-owned plants in what is now known as the Czech Republic, many of which were known as “CZ’s”, were re-built further away from the Czech borders. In this rebuilding process one manufacturer (CZ’s sister company today), Česká zbrojovka a.s. Uherský Brod became today’s CZ’s namesake.
Since then, they haven’t stopped creating new firearms, including several types of handguns. Eventually, in 1992, CZ went from being a state-owned production center to a private company. They continued innovating, and in 1975, created the CZ-75 pistol. Its subsidiary company, CZ-USA, was established in 1997. Today CZ remains one of the largest Czech exporters and continues to specialize in manufacturing the best military, sporting, and hunting firearms

Since 1975, the CZ-75 line-up has served a generation of shooters well. Some of the most popular models include the CZ Shadow and the CZ-75 B. In fact, the CZ-75 B is one of the best small handguns available. What sets it apart is its internal firing pin safety, serrated squared trigger guard, and ring hammer. In addition, it’s got low recoil, a last-round hold-open chamber, and a 2-column magazine, making it perfect for sporting or self-defense. It’s also an ideal handgun for women, due to its low-recoil and compact design. It’s currently one of the best pistols for sale right now. With just over 45 years of Czech and American commitment to top performance guns, there’s simply no beating this classic model.
One of CZ’s most popular lines is the Scorpion Evo. Known for bringing back the popular qualities of the Škorpion vz. 61, this carbine line makes a legal and up-to-date pistol that firearms enthusiasts are obsessed with. Take, for example, the Scorpion Evo 3 S1 Carbine. Based on the submachine platform model, it’s now available for civilians as a pistol. It’s completely 922(r) compliant due to the addition of US-made parts. With adjustability for days, the Scorpion Evo 3 S1 is compatible with most pistol-caliber suppressors and includes a Picatinny rail and a folding adjustable brace. It’s an ideal carbine pistol for all kinds of users: for instance, it’s got fully ambidextrous controls, iron sights, and endlessly customizable components. CZ’s original Škorpion vz. 61 may have come out in 1957, but the idea behind it lives on in this carbine so that civilian shooters can experience it with all its classic qualities and modern features.
The CZ SP-01 is another iteration of the CZ 75. It features a full-size frame and slide, a large beavertail, and a modern rubber grip design to enable a full and confident grip. In addition, it features an accessory rail for flashlights, lasers, or whatever else you may wish to add to your pistol. Its steel construction ensures years of service. Firing 18 rounds of 9mm ammo, the SP-01’s ergonomics provide minimum perceived recoil for maximum performance. With this pistol, you get all the quality of the original CZ 75, with the modern features to make quick and consistent shooting.
As a compact variant of the CZ-75, the CZ P-07 is the first pistol to feature a convertible Omega trigger system that has a convertible decocker/safety system that can be switched between a locking lever and a safety. The new trigger design also allows for better trigger pull. The P-07 was updated in 2014 to have smoother, more ergonomic edges for easier carrying. With tradition and innovation in mind, the P-07 is just one more way CZ brings the best of new and old together.
Absolutely loaded with features, the CZ P-09 comes in both double and single action, with a smooth pull and tight-slide-to-frame fit. Made as a full-size version of the P-07, it’s available in both black and OD Green. In addition, it has a luminous green-dot sight and a high-cut trigger guard, making it one of the best handguns on the market. It holds up to the coldest, toughest conditions with its polymer build and large trigger frame for use while wearing gloves. You can feel confidently armed in the toughest conditions with this USA and Czech-made quality pistol.
With the P-10 variant of the CZ-75, you’re getting a military-grade 9mm pistol that fits perfectly in your hand. Its trigger prevents stacking and creep like no other, providing well-grouped shots with its consistent 4.5-5 lb. pull. The CZ P-10’s military-grade strength comes from its fiber-reinforced polymer frame. As comparatively less expensive handguns go, this is one of the best handguns for your buck that doesn’t sacrifice quality for price. Make the perfect shot (and follow-up shot) every time with the P-10!
