CZ-75 Police Pistol
The CZ-75 Police was developed in 1978 as a service model for the government. The first model was part of the 75 B Series, although this was not indicated on the slide. The most obious characteristic at that time was the uncocking lever, instead of the ordinary safety catch on the left of the frame. In addition, there was a lanyard ring under the grip.
In 1997, model CZ-75 Police was succeeded by the CZ-75 BD Police. In addition to an uncocking lever, this weapon also has a cartridge indicator. Furthermore, it has a magazine catch behind the trigger guard which can be moved to the right side and a lanyard ring at the bottom of the grips. The slide catch is ambidextrous and the bead and the rear sight have a tritium nigh sight marking. CZ-75 Police and CZ-75 BD Police pistols are available in 9 mm Para and 9 x 21 mm calibers (both 16 cartridges) or .40 S&W caliber (11 cartridges). It has the same measurements as the standard CZ-75 pistol. The CZ is also available with a laser telescopic sight for police purposes. The laser is mounted on the front of the square trigger guard. The switch for this sighting device is not so easy to see. It is concealed as a peg in the left grip plate on the frame.
