The 39th SHOT Show, one of the world’s major shooting exhibitions, was one of the most successful ever for Česká zbrojovka a.s. and its subsidiary, CZ-USA. Their new striker fired CZ P-10 C pistol was ranked among the top five new products!
The 2017 SHOT Show, organized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), opened its doors to visitors from the professional community between the 17th and 20th January 2017 at the Sands Expo Centre in Las Vegas.
Because of its date, this exhibition offers a great opportunity for CZ to present its comprehensive portfolio of products for the upcoming season. This year was no exception and we chose Las Vegas to be the place for the first public presentation of our completely new pistol, the CZ P-10 C.
With this revolutionary new product CZ enters the market of striker fired pistols. It was exhibited not only at the company stand but also in the New Product Centre together with about five hundred other products from 338 companies. In this strong competition, our pistol ranked among the TOP five based on visitor ratings.
The CZ P-10 C is a revolutionary compact size striker fired pistol intended for personal protection as well as for the armed forces, and is suitable for concealed carry. It is characterized by high reliability, durability and refined shooting, aided by the unique checkering and excellent grip designed with the help of the DiFEND system, a new methodology for ergonomics. The pistol features a mechanically and thermally stable polymer frame reinforced with glass fibre. The surface finish on the slide and the barrel is extremely durable. The magazine with its exceptional capacity of 15 rounds in 9x19 cal. can be increased to 17 rounds by inserting an additional buttplate. There are also three interchangeable backstraps which allow the user to customize the size of the grip.
In addition, the SHOT Show 2017 also saw CZ and its subsidiary CZ-USA introduce a number of other new products which received excellent reviews from the visitors. Throughout the four days of the fair, our stand was literally besieged by visitors interested in our products.
To name a few, our successful family of semi-automatic guns, the CZ SCORPION EVO 3 enjoyed a lot of attention, with the new S1 PISTOL W / FLASH CAN in the lead. This model is based on the Carbine model but does not have a shoulder stock. Its 7.7" long barrel is equipped with an original cylindrical 5” KAK flash hider.
Regarding the production of our Dan Wesson subsidiary, there was the all-steel DW POINTMAN CARRY (PM-C) pistol, suitable for concealed carry while being also very comfortable to shoot.
To name some other new products from our company, the SHOT Show visitors were also greatly interested in our sport pistol, the CZ SHADOW 2, the new CZ 455 SCOUT rimfire rifle and the CZ 527 rifles in 6.5 Grendel and .300 Blackout calibres. Another model that enjoyed much attention was the new assault rifle, the CZ BREN 2.
The SHOT Show is the largest trade fair of its kind in the world. With nearly 65,000 visitors from more than 100 countries, this year’s exhibition was the second most popular of all times. More than 1,600 companies took part in exhibiting their products.
