      This letter and the compliment along with the information from CZUB regarding the 75th Anniversary, could not have happened without the help, advise, encouragement from Kev Rees. Ken was one of the Founding Fathers of the CZForum some 10? years ago as I have said before. Along with some others, which I will name if they let me, he and they started something that would grow and help put CZ's on the Pistol Map of the US. They spent many long years building the CZForum and with little or no recognition as near as I can tell from reading through their Archives. This is as much their letter as it is mine, Angryvikingman, DeeDubya and b5.5dan's our moderators.
     And yourselves our members. Thank you each and everyone.

Limited Edition of "CZ 75th Anniversary Pistol" for the 75th Anniversary of Česká zbrojovka


The celebration of 75th anniversary of Česká zbrojovka a. s. in Uherský Brod resembles a mathematic formula. To recall the important jubilee, the company has treated the market with launch of the special edition of CZ 75 pistol, their absolutely top best seller of all times. The resultant product will be the copy of this legend from 1970´s.


The numerical tricks are hidden in the 75th anniversary of the company, as well as the name of this legendary firearm - CZ 75 - and the last but not the least is the quantity of firearms in the limited edition - 6 x 75 pcs within the limited edition of pistols with reference to six continents supplied by exports from Česká zbrojovka, plus 1 x 75 pcs of the World Class version guns.
"The conjunction of 75th anniversary and the very CZ 75 pistol in its initial version were apparent from the very beginning. Therefore, we named the pistol in the spirit of this event - CZ 75th Anniversary"- said the Product Manager of Česká zbrojovka, Richard Velísek, one of the authors involved in realisation of the anniversary pistol model.
By manufacturing this limited series, Česká zbrojovka is referring back to the break of 1960´s and 1970´s, when the trestle board of design engineer František Koucký saw the evolution of the first draft of the famous "seventy-five". There have been numerous pieces of the first model of CZ 75 preserved all over the World, excluding the cock safety lug and shorter frame and slide grooves. These pistols now represent unique vintage pieces held in private collections. With the limited series of 525 pcs of 75th Anniversary, Česká zbrojovka is offering the option for purchase of this legend even in the year 2011, which is approximately 40 years since its evolution and 30 years following its upgrade to CZ 75B.
The shape of CZ 75th Anniversary resembles pistols from 1970´s, yet its equipment and features would match it with contemporary pistols with sufficient safety elements.












Česká zbrojovka a.s. kept celebrating its 75th anniversary all the year 2011. On the occasion of the celebration there was hold on Saturday, 22 October 2011 an Open Day and the company received some 1600 visitors. The support of the film Lidice launched in May 2011 was another important way of celebration as Česká zbrojovka a.s. was one of the principal partners of this successful and by the audience so well attended film. The launching of the "anniversary" pistol was on purpose postponed by Česká zbrojovka a.s. till the year 2012. "We wanted to extend the celebration of the historic anniversary by launching the pistol only in January 2012 and at the same time finish in this important manner all the celebrating", said Mr. Velísek.
