9x19mm or 9x21mm or .40 S&W
Developed behind the iron curtain in the Czech Republic from 1969 to 1975, this became a very reputable pistol for accuracy and reliability. It was a major export for this country while their armed forces were still using the standard Warsaw Pact Tokarev, and later Makarov, pistols. It was not available to the Czech Republic armed forces until after the velvet Revolution in 1989. Secret patents that only applied in the Czech Republic allowed many different versions of this pistol to be manufactured in other countries.
