The CZ 75 is a semi-automatic recoil-operated pistol introduced in 1975 by Ceská Zbrojovka Uhersky Brod. It is chambered for the 9mm Parabellum round and features a high-capacity double stack magazine, sturdy all-steel construction, great accuracy, and superb reliability. Ceská Zbrojovka claims the CZ 75 and variants are in service with "more Governments, Militaries, Police and Security agencies than any other pistol in the world." It is known to be in service with the Czech police, the Turkish police, and various police forces in the United States.
