The CZ 92 Pistol is designed for personal defense at short distances. The whole technical concept was adapted with this point of view in mind. The CZ 92 Model is a small, light handgun featuring a blowback breech and the double action only (DAO) mode of fire. The hammer returns to the down position after each shot, and for the subsequent shots must be cocked again by pulling the trigger. This ensures sufficient safety against inadvertent discharge and high readiness of this pistol to fire. The pistol is intentionally not equipped with a manual safety so as not to compromise its readiness to fire. For safe maintenance, the pistol is fitted with a magazine safety, which locks the pistol automatically after the mazine is removed.
The CZ 92 pistol is adapted for a comfortable grip in either hand. Due to its purpose the pistol is equipped with a simple sighting rib. The pistol comes with various surface finishes. The CZ 92 is produced in two versions with magazine release located either on side or at the bottom of the grip.
