For 15 years, CZ produced a great sub-compact pistol based on its CZ 75 line that was perfect for concealed carry, the handy little 2075 RAMI.
Introduced in 2005, the RAMI was in every sense a chopped-down CZ 75, using the famed pistol's double-action/single-action design and double-stack magazine format. Whereas the full-sized CZ 75 typically had a 4.7-inch barrel which yielded an 8.15-inch overall length and 38-ounce weight, the alloy-framed RAMI hit the market with a 3-inch barrel, 6.5-inch overall length, and an unloaded weight of less than 26 ounces.
The standard RAMI, introduced in 2005, was pitched as a carry gun on the commercial market or as a back-up handgun for military and law enforcement personnel. Using fixed combat sights that were billed as "snag-free" the RAMI had large surface controls and three safeties – a firing pin block, hammer safety notch, and a manual frame-mounted safety.
The RAMI was marketed in 9mm and briefly in .40 S&W, with the latter running an 8-shot magazine. Due to its double-stack mag and manual safety lever, the pistol is a little chunky, taping 1.3 inches wide. Its 4.7-inch height with the standard mag made for a compact carry gun but proved a little big for pocket carry.
By 2020, with the new CZ P10 S subcompact hitting its stride, the RAMI was dropped from CZ's active catalog and listed as "discontinued/limited production" although some newold stock guns remain up for grabs. Moving forward, those who want a more discreet CZ 75 have to make do with the company's CZ 75 D PCR Compact, an aluminum-framed 10+1 9mm originally designed for the Czech police, whose specs come close to the RAMI's.
Still, RAMI fans know, love, and trust their little CZs.
