CZ - Ceska Zbrojovka
Česká zbrojovka ("Czech Armory" in Czech), often rendered simply as "ČZ" (or "CZ") have been produced by various factories that have been mutually independent in their management and ownership.
CZ products are imported exclusively by CZ-USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company, Ceska Zbrojovka a.s. Uhersky Brod, (CZUB) of the Czech Republic.
CZ firearms have been available through normal channels in the US since 1991, through such importers/distributors as Bauska, Action Arms, Magnum Research.
In 1997 CZUB recognized the need to control its own destiny in a market as big as the US. Initially based in Oakhurst California, the CZ-USA headquarters and warehouse facility was moved to Kansas City in January of 1998.
All distribution, warranty work and repair work is located in the Kansas City KS. Location, along with a well stocked parts department.
