Ceska Zbrojovka is a manufacturer of fine guns. Also known as CZ, they are based in the Czech Republic.

Their weapons are well made, and are mostly older-styled heavy steel guns. CZ supplied much of the old Soviet Republic with 45cal pistols (based on the Colt 1911) and 9mm high-power luger/parabellums. Since the USSR broke up, CZ has been supplying weapons to many countries, including the United States. I own a CZ-75 9mm, and it is the best handgun I have ever owned. Yurei also owns a similar model, and we both like the heavy weight to balance the recoil. For anime fans, this was the weapon of choice for the Gunsmith Cats.
