PRESENTATION: 2009 (P-07) and 2013 (P-09)
The ancestor of the P-07 and P-09, the excellent ČZ 75, was introduced to the market in 1975. The all-metal, forged steel barrel pistol, manufactured with 9×19 and 9×21 mm calibres, soon became one of the most popular handguns on the market in both Eastern Europe and the West. In addition to law enforcement agencies and military forces, sports shooters soon fell in love with it, and almost innumerable versions of the 75 were developed, enlarging both the full-size and the short-barrel (compact) family. An important aspect of the latest development was the reduction of empty weight, as a service weapon can be carried by its user for days. To this end, the engineers used special, fiberglass-reinforced materials, which had already been used successfully by many other weapons manufacturers.
Self-loading, short-recoil, Browning-SIG-system weapon with external cock, and three-point, open, fixed luminescent sights. It has a fiberglass-reinforced plastic frame with corrosion and mechanical damage resistance, together with the barrel and slide. The back strap of the roughened grip is modular that can be changed according to the individual needs of the user. The standard pistol version is provided with ambidextrous safety or ambidextrous decocking element, which can be operated with either hand.
9 × 19, 9 × 21 and .40 S&W (P-07). Magazine capacity: 15 rounds (9×19 and 9×21 mm) or 12 rounds (.40 S&W) for P-09, 19 rounds.
