   The CZ 110 Self-loading Pistol is a further development of the CZ 100 Self-loading pistol. The new pistol was developed at the end of 1990 in Czech Republic by "Czechska Zbrojovka" company. It's development was caused by unsuccessful "double-action" only hammer mode design with the CZ 100. The new pistol is chambered for 9 x 19 mm (Para), 9 x 21 mm (IMI), and 10 x 21 mm (.40S&W) cartridges. It is one of the first polymer frame pistols made in Czech Republic.

   The CZ 110 automatic is based on a barrel short recoil principle. Barrels locking principle is similar to the Browning "High Power" Self-loading Pistol. The only safety-lock is an automatic firing pin. Pistol is mostly intended for "double-action" usage. However there is ability to use a "single-action" mode if required to make an accurate first shot. It makes able to carry pistol with a cartridge loaded in the barrel's channel. The CZ 110 has a barrel's channel load indicator. It is also fitted with a frame mounted decocker.

   Pistol has a polymer frame and handle, however slide is made from steel. Trigger guard allows to execute fire from both hands. Between the sights and over the extraction opening there is device which is used to reload weapon using one hand by hooking it on the harder surface as a belt and pushing the gun forward.

   The CZ 110 Self-loading Pistol is fed from two line magazines. Basic model, chambered in 9 x 19 mm (Para) cartridges has a 13 rounds capacity magazines, as well as the model chambered in 9 x 21 (IMI). Pistol chambered in .40 S&W cartridges has a 10 round capacity magazines.

   It is completed with a fixed sight. There is ability to adjust it in horizontal plane only. It is an advantage, cause other pistols don't have even this option.


   Ability to use in "single-" or "double-action" modes both. Ability to reload weapon comfortably using one hand only. Absence of manual safeties. Sights horizontal adjustment ability.


   Uncomfortable pistol handle caused by two line magazine.
