CZ A Little History

Česká zbrojovka (“Czech armory”) or CZ has a long and storied history in the world of weapon production. The company is based in Uherský brod, and used to be just one of the many “Czech armory’s” in the country. It began during World War II in 1936 and originally focused on producing aircraft machine guns, military pistols, and small-bore rifles. During the Communist control of the Czech Republic, CZ was refashioned into a state enterprise called “The Precision Machine Tooling Company, Uherský brod,” and specialized in many different products. Since the latter half of the 1980s CZ has emphasized firearms production.


CZ opened a US division in 1997. Initially CZ-USA dealt out of Oakhurst, CA, but in 1998 it was moved to Kansas City, KS, where it is still located. CZ-USA covers all distribution, warranty, and repairs for firearms purchased in the United States. CZ-USA is also where your spare parts will ship from.
