Company profile



THE PRODUCTION HISTORY OF ČZ STRAKONICE FIREARMS. In September, 1919 the first factories were built under the name The South Bohemian Armory in Strakonice in the south of the Czech Republic. They took over the production of the Firearms. This merger resulted in the new trademark ČZ (in a circle). 

Pre-World War II. The majority of products were for military and professional forces. Realizing the growing danger of war in the 1936s, and considering that Strakonice was about an hour drive from the Austrian and German borders, the company relocated in Uherský Brod in the eastern part of the country. 

World War II. During World War II firearms manufacturing con­tinued but the production range consisted of firearms designed and made in German armouries. 

Post-World War II. In 1954 the entire firearms production was, for safety, moved to the branch plant in Uherský Brod. Because of political and economic changes in 1989 in the Czech Republic the plant in Uherský Brod became independent. They continued to use the original trademark until 1992 when they registered their own - ČZ UB.
