The new model of the Czech CZ P-10 S pistol or the size matters

 13. 11. 2019      category: Events

The CZ P-10 S is a variant of a successful series of pistols equipped with linear firing pin. Compared to other variants of the CZ P-10 pistol, the CZ P-10 S or Subcompact shows more structural difference. But it is nothing serious, the utmost intervention had to be done to the return spring, and the rest was primarily about a carefully calculated reduction.

The CZ P-10 S is a new variant of the successful series of pistols with a linear striker. Its subcompact dimensions are ideal for concealed carry, making it a perfect model for personal defence or a back-up gun for armed forces personnel. Despite the smaller size, this pistol offers the same shooting comfort and user-friendliness as its Full Size version. The basic version of this pistol features a 12-round 9x19 cal. magazine, a superior capacity for its category. Watch the video presenting all its features!

With such small firearms, it is always about balancing between the smallest sizes and what can be held while firing, without negative effects to the exactness or even to function (the real risk of polymer frame firearms). As with any subcompact, a handgrip of the CZ P-10 S is too short for all the fingers. This design is still handling reliable and comfortable and it enables exact and even fast shooting. The great ergonomics of this model series makes contribution to that together with considerable roughening of the grip surfaces. In addition, various tests have proved complete reliability, even though the grip is not quite strong (which, however, is an improbability in such a small firearm already being sensed instinctively).

To put it right – the CZ P-10 S is a firearm designed primarily for a short-range defensive shooting, which can often mean even a touch firing. This model provides the user with the tool he can fully rely on in such situations.  And that is of the most importance. The surprisingly exact shooting with this firearm even at a greater distance, is more of an added value. That, of course, delights.
