The new CZ P-10 C pistol attracted a lot of attention during its European launch at the IWA OutdoorClassics from the visitors as well as professional journalists. This European premiere followed on the successful presentation of the pistol in the United States at the turn of the year and its February introduction in the UAE. In addition to the CZ-P-10 C, CZ also introduced a number of other new products at this prestigious show, namely the Stainless CZ 455, the CZ 550 Safari Classics II and the Brno Express.
The current record trading performance of Česká zbrojovka a.s. (CZ) is the result, among others, of the success of the new generation of CZ weapons. Regarding pistols, one of the most successful is the CZ P-07 compact, the current top of the development series involving SA/DA pistols with a polymer frame and external hammer. When deciding on how to build on such success, the Uherský Brod company has adopted a different strategy. For 2017, they have created a weapon very different from what their customers were previously used to in the CZ brand. The resulting product is the new CZ P-10 C pistol, otherwise known as the compact. In 9mm Luger (9×19) cal., the magazine can hold 15 or 17 rounds (when using a baseplate), in .40 S&W cal. it is 12 or 15 rounds. The CZ P-10 C is a full service and defence pistol, in the first phase destined exclusively for the US market. According to current plans, Europe and other regions will see the pistol on their markets at the turn of 2017/2018.
In the portfolio of CZ, the CZ 455 rimfire rifles have been supplemented by a number of new interesting model versions and 2017 is no exception. Besides the CZ 455 Thumbhole Yellow sports special with the Flyweight Trigger or the compact version of the CZ 455 Scout with dimensions suitable for younger shooters, there is the CZ 455 Stainless. And this model was presented at the IWA 2017.
