CZ-USA P-09 Duty 16+1 9mm – SHOT Show 2013


CZ-USA says there is no other handgun out there with a higher flush-fitting magazine capacity than the company’s new P-09 Duty. I certainly don’t know another, but any way you look at it, 19+1 in 9 mm and 16+1 in the .40 S&W chambering is impressive. One of the most interesting things in the P-09 is the fact that it comes from the factory with an ambidextrous decocker installed, but manual safety levers ship with the gun. So if you’d rather have a manual safety instead of a decocker, it takes just a few minutes for the owner to make the swap. OK, it took me more than a few minutes when I gave the system a try on the P-07 Duty, but it does work and it’s not that tough (assuming your fingers are more nimble than mine). MSRP is $528. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun, take a close look at CZ-USA’s new 612 Home Defense. It’s comes with an 18.5-inch, cylinder-bore barrel and polymer furniture. The tubular magazine holds five rounds and a 26-inch vent rib is available in case you want it to do double duty during bird season. MSRP is only $290. And the company’s other new introduction is the 527 Varmint, which is chambered in .17 Hornet, has a detachable five-round magazine and for only $704 it still utilizes the popular CZ-USA Single-Set Trigger.

    Why must they beat around the bush for 3 minutes instead of telling us what we want to know – the one and only thing – “How in the $^#% is it *DIFFERENT* from the P-08?” ??

    Since you don’t know of another, here’s one that had that for a very long time: Springfield Armory XDM-9. 19+1

      cvela – the claim is there’s no other flush fitting capacity HIGHER than 19+1.
