Recently, John "Shrek" McPhee − also known as the "Sheriff of Baghdad" due to his military career and combat background − tackled the CZ P-09, Czech Republic's latest polymer-frame, 9mm-caliber hammer-fired semi-automatic pistol.
Conceived for professional and civilian applications alike, the CZ P-09 was thoroughly praised by seasoned shooter John McPhee due to its excellent reliability with all kinds of ammunition, its astounding accuracy, and its superior ergonomics − all factors that are already making the P-09 a top seller between sport shooters both in Europe and in north America.
McPhee's final words in his review, "The P-09 is the best bang for the buck", probably sum up his thought on CZ's polymer-frame full-size handgun, but we encourage you to read his full review and see for yourselves why John McPhee agrees with CZ when they say that “We want to make a good pistol that you don’t have to spend money on”.
The CZ P-09 semi-automatic polymer-frame pistol goes at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of €789.00 in Europe and $530.00 in the United States.
