CZ 75 B 9mm pistolThe CZ 75 B is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W. The 75 B is produced by CZ-USA, a Kansas City based subsidiary of the Czech arms manufacturer Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod. It is also the second-generation CZ 75.

CZ originally developed the pistol in 1975 in the Czech Republic for the Czech armed forces, but also with the intention of exporting it globally.

The company, however, was unable to do so because the Czech Republic was part of the Warsaw Pact and the design was listed as “secret” by the USSR, therefore the company was unable to secure global patent protection for its design. Because of that, a plethora of copies and variants have been offered by other global arms companies.

CZ used Browning’s Hi-Power pistol design as a jumping off point for the CZ 75’s design. Similar to the Hi-Power, the CZ 75 has a locked-breech system, where backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. It is also designed to deliver short-recoil, so the barrel and slide are locked together until the slide rides back.

The CZ 75 B features an all-steel construction and plastic grips. It has a cold hammer forged barrel, meaning a mandrel carefully passed through the bore to carve the rifled grooves; this process increases durability and precision. The 75 B is equipped with 3-dot sights and it is available with a high-polish, matte, or stainless steel finish.

The CZ 75 is used by the Czech Republic’s Armed Forces and police, the Lithuanian military, the Slovakian military, the Turkish military, and some US military special forces and police units. It is also a popular sport and competition shooting.
