With over 75 years of experience in the design and manufacture of small arms, CZUB is today regarded as one of the small arms leaders of the world. State-of-the-art technology, CNC machining centers and skilled personnel are the guarantees of the highest standards of quality. The common features for all CZ handguns include hammer forged barrels, tight tolerances and great ergonomics.
The history of Ceska zbrojovka Uhersky Brod dates back to 1936, when it was established as a branch plant of Ceska zbrojovka located in town of Strakonice, based on a political decision of the National Defence Council. On 2 January 1937 production of a combined range of military and civilian arms commenced. The first products were aircraft machine guns, military pistols and smallbore rifles. During the Nazi occupation period the plant was forced to produce and repair military arms.
From 1945 the plant returned to the combined range of military and civilian arms, with an equal share of time going into the production of each. In 1950 the Company became a separate state enterprise called "Presne strojirenstvi Uhersky Brod" (The Precision Machine Tooling Company) and was subsequently reorganised into a number of specialised directorates. In the 1970s and 1980s the Company was merged with the concern Agrozet Brno, where it engaged in its traditional production of arms while also taking over and launching the production of reduction gears and driveshaft casings for aircraft engines for Motorlet Praha and hydraulic powered and controlled attachments for tractors for Zetor Brno. In the second half of the 1980s a corporate modernisation and restructuring process began, with an emphasis on the product range of arms, and the process continued on into the 1990s. As of 1 July 1988 the Company was split off from Agrozet Brno and became a separate state enterprise, once again taking its original name of Ceská zbrojovka, s.p.
In 1990 production for the last project for the Czechoslovak armed units ceased and the newly available capacity was put to full use in expanding production of arms for hunting and sporting purposes, as well as exports for armed police and military units. Similarly, in 1991 when the production of hydraulic powered and controlled attachments for tractors was discontinued, and in 1992 after the production volume of reduction gears and driveshaft casings for aircraft engines was curtailed, the newly available capacities were used primarily to expand the traditional production of recreational arms.
On 1 May 1992, the National Property Fund of the Czech Republic established the joint stock company Ceska zbrojovka a.s., Uhersky Brod in accordance with a privatisation project.
In 1997 Ceska zbrojovka obtained quality system certification pursuant to ISO 9001. The Company has been granted the requisite authorisation by the Office for Civil Aviation to manufacture and repair aircraft engine parts. The Company’s automotive industry manufacturing operation is has received quality system certification per CSN EN ISO 16949 standards, which forms a solid basis for further development in this area.
CZ CZ75 P-01 Omega Ω 9MM P
The P-01 9mm (designated the P-06 in .40 S&W) was designed for LE and Military duty, but its compact size and the reduced weight due to its forged alloy frame made it ideal for discrete carry as well. Equipped with a decocker, the P-01 provides convenience for those who prefer hammer-down carry.
The P-01 was the first CZ model to benefit from updated manufacturing technology at CZ's Uhersky Brod factory. The components of the P-01/P-06 are completely interchangable with every other P-01/P-06, with no individual fitting required. This required some very careful re-design so that the reliability and accuracy were not impaired. Since the time of its introduction (designed in 2001, NATO-approved in 2003) the production upgrades have been rolled out to most of the CZ 75 family and several new rifle models as well.
The 1913 accessory rail easily accepts any of the industry-standard lights and lasers to assist low-light use. After 3 years of some of the most aggressive small arms testing ever, the CZ P-01 won the honor of replacing the CZ 75s previously used by the Czech National Police.
Reliability: The U.S. Army "Mean Rounds Between Failure" (MRBF) requirement is 495 rounds for 9mm pistols. During testing of the CZ P-01, the average number of stoppages was only 7 per 15,000 rounds fired. This is a .05% failure rate or an MRBF of 2142!
