|CZ's new P-09 9 mm pistol specially highlighted at IndoDefence 2014|
At IndoDefence 2014, which was held in Jakarta, Indonesia, CZ Ceská Zbrojovka, which is a long-standing and the most important Czech manufacturer of small arms and one of the most important armament factories in the world, has specially highlighted its newest product, the CZ P-09 9 mm 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.
