The production programme of Ceská zbrojovka a.s., consisting primarily of a well-balanced portfolio of firearms for the civilian market and service sector, is complemented by deliveries of high-precision engineering products, especially for the automotive and aeronautical industry.
CZ P-07 pistol
In late 2013 Ceská zbrojovka (CZ) launched sales of its eagerly awaited novelty –the service, personal defence and, last but not least, also sports pistol, the CZ P-09. It is a full-sized pistol model, originally conceived as a “big Duty” or an enlarged version of the successful polymer compact – the CZ 75 P-07 Duty. However, the Duty was eventually transformed by a considerable updating and modernizing into the new model, the CZ P-07 and these substantial changes were indeed transmitted to her bigger sister, too. The “P zero niner” is, thanks to this development process, a weapon with a completely new set of characteristics and performance, markedly superior to the existing parameters of the CZ pistols.
CZ P-09 is a modern pistol of a standard size, from the outset conceived as a service weapon of a member of armed forces. In fact, professionals over the world contributed their comments, suggestions and requirements, bringing their important share to the development of the weapon. The most important features finally figuring in the requirements were the comfort of handling and control, high precision also during rapid fire and a maximum reliability. The “P zero niner” is of course a fully fledged personal defence and sporting weapon for a civilian shooter, too. In 2013 it was approved officially for use in the Production Division of sports shooting along the IPSC rules.
The CZ P-09 pistol, which was authored by a CZ designer, Ing. Ivan Filko, (as was the compact CZ P-07), comes to the market in three calibres: The 9x19 (9 mm Luger), the .40 S&W and the 9x21, while enjoying maximum design and component compatibility between those three calibres. Its design utilises the well-proven features with the utilisation of the latest advances in the production technology.
The name Bren is written in the history of weapons in gold letters as one of the best light machine guns of all time. Today this prestigious name bears the CZ 805 weapon system that brought Ceská zbrojovka (CZ) Uherský Brod back to the world’s élite club of key manufacturers of modern infantry weapons. This year the family of “eight-oh-fives”is augmented by the purely self-loading version for the civil market.
The CZ 805 BREN weapon system exists for a short period of time, yet it has been through a plenty of action. Let’s recall that its gestation begun in 2006 based on the large analysis of performance of existing and newly developed service rounds (cartridges) and of the real needs of the armed forces in current, often asymmetric conflicts. Based on that knowledge the Ceská zbrojovka Uherský Brod started the development of its most modern product portfolio of automatic weapons in the base configuration of the assault (automatic) rifle/carbine.
