P10C, CZ's new striker-fired pistol
SHOT Show 2017 - First announced in December, the CZ P10C striker-fired pistol made its public appearance at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas
First announced back in December 2016, the CZ P10C semi-automatic pistol has been finally showcased to the public at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas; the latest entry in the Czech company's line of semi-automatic handguns for personal defense, home protection, target shooting, training, and service issue purposes is a polymer frame design that also marks CZ's return to striker-fired operation after the abortive (albeit technically sound) CZ-100 of the late 1990s.
Much in the line of the P-07, CZ's P10C is ergonomically shaped to fit any shooter's hand thanks to the CZ typical grip angle, a mild palm swell, a deep beavertail, three interchangeable backstraps, an aggressive slip-proof grip texture, and a slim grip profile thanks to the use of sheet metal magazines holding up to 16 rounds of 9mm or 14 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition.
In terms of overall and barrel length, the CZ P10C is akin to, to say, a Glock 19, allowing comfortable open or concealed carry. The 4-4.½ lbs trigger rebounds with a short and positive reset, eliminating the creep and stacking of so many striker-fired pistols and allowing single shots can be meticulously placed while follow-ups are effortless.
Built to withstand the rigors of military use, the fiber-reinforced polymer frame and hardy nitride finish of the CZ P10C made for the daily grind. A generous trigger guard allows use with gloved hands while being undercut to allow as high a grip as possible, and a set of metal tactical 3-dot sights allow for one-handed manipulation of the slide on a belt
