CZ-75 Cold War Commemorative Raffle

Congratulations to Robert B. of Moorhead, MN
Robert had ticket # 170316 and is the winner of the CZ-75 Cold War Commemorative Pistol.

It may be said that some economic and political systems stifle innovative design, and Czechoslovakia, one of the former Soviet Union satellite nations, was certainly one example of a troubled situation in which great ideas were few and far between. Occasionally, however, some great designs spring forth from unlikely places. This week's “Flash Raffle” prize is one such example of a good design that came to be under bad circumstances. While Soviet style communism may have been consigned to the ash heap of history, The Model 75 9mm Pistol rose up from the ashes, to become one of the most sought after combat pistols developed in the 20th Century.

Known as productive and innovative arms makers for centuries, Czech manufacturers have weathered their fair share of political storms. Designed specifically for export, the CZ Model 75 became a “cult favorite” in the United States, even though trade with Communist nations was frowned upon at the time. During the Cold War Era CZ pistols could only be sold to the “friendly” communist countries. Most shooters had only limited exposure through military service in Europe, or through the few guns which were imported through Canada.

Following the liberation of Eastern Europe around 1991, the flagship of the CZ handgun line, the CZ 75 was able to be imported into the United States. Today, the classic CZ is one of the most copied handguns in the world, with almost as many clones as the 1911 pistol, and more than the vaunted P-35 Hi-Power.

Guns for a Cause is hosting this fundraiser on behalf of Kara’s HoPE. Proceeds from this event will help fund their ongoing mission to provide relief to families with children who are coping with the effects of Holoprosencephaly (HPE).
