The Aglockalypse rolls on, unstoppable: CZ has become the latest company to learn stop worrying and love the striker-fired handgun, as just today Tim Harmsen from the Military Arms Channel announced the new CZ P10, the latest duty handgun from the venerable Czech gunmaker. The Military Arms Channel produced a video on the new handgun, including footage of the first example to make it into the US, as well as footage from CZ’s facility in the Czech Republic. The video is embedded below:
CZ seems to be pushing a cleaner, better trigger as something that sets the P10 apart from the rest of the striker-fired handgun market. Recently, we’ve seen a lot of manufacturers take this route, including Walther, H&K, and SIG, and CZ seems to be following suit her, trying to improve the quality of the striker-fired trigger system to appeal to more shooters who may have reservations about the very spongy and “clicky” feel of a Glock or S&W.
With the release of CZ, that leaves only Colt and only a couple of other major handgun manufacturers who haven’t jumped on the bandwagon of inexpensive striker-fired pistols, but given the insane popularity of this type of weapon among manufacturers and shooters alike, it may only be a matter of time for them. You can’t stop the Aglockalypse!
