Cheska Zbrojovka is an early 30s quality firearms manufacturer with a history of survival under the Nazis and the Russians. I have the BD in 9mm and it is very popular with military and police world wide. It is what I call a "craftsman tool" with kudos to Sears for the term. These hanguns are well made and designed to work hard. They are accurate if you can shoot. Their decocker works very well and the gun is all steel and the slide is made on a cnc machine which produces close tolerances. Look for reviews on the internet and the CZ Forum for a history of the company. Good shooting.
