Deadly CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom

Army and Weapons | Deadly CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom | The CZ 75 is a semi-automatic pistol made by Ceska Zbrojovka Uherský Brod (Czub) in the Czech Republic. First introduced in 1975, he was one of the "wonder nine" original featuring a staggered-column magazine, all-steel construction and a hammer forged barrel. He has a good reputation among shooters for the gun quality and versatility at a reasonable price, and is widely distributed throughout the world. It is also the most common weapon in the Czech Republic.

The CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom was released in early last year in the Czech Republic and I think was available in mid-year in the United States. I missed the launch and have been meaning to cover it for a while.
Arms industry was an important part of the Czechoslovak economy between the wars and was responsible for much of the country's exports (see, for example, Bren gun, which was a modified version of Czechoslovak ZB vz . 26). However following the 1948 communist coup, all heavy industry was nationalized and taken behind the Iron Curtain. Yet, while most other countries of the Warsaw Pact became dependent on arms imports from the USSR, many weapons remained Czechoslovak domestic (eg used in the Czechoslovak army Vz 58. Assault rifle, while other Communist bloc countries used Kalashnikov rifle).
František Josef Koucky brothers and became the most important engineers of the Czub after the Second World War. To some extent they participated in the design of all the company post-war weapons. As they used to all their designs, the undersigned (using only the name), it is difficult to assess which of them thought of particular ideas.
