The CZ 70 also called the VZ 70, short for VZOR 70 was developed especially for police in former Czechoslovakia in Strakonice by Kratochvil brothers. Later this model was also produced in Uhersky Brod. In 1970, the CZ 70 replaced the CZ 50 and became the standard sidearm of Czechoslovak armed forces and police until 1983. During this period the CZ 70 served quite reliably. The design of CZ 70 was based on the Walther PP pistol using a fixed barrel and 8-round magazine capacity. Chambered in 7.65mm (.32 Auto) caliber, this pistol offers either single or double action and features a manual thumb safety on the left side of the frame. It also has an exposed hammer and a more blended merge with the frame, removing sharp angles. The model has also a new grip pattern utilizing a grid of dimples instead of grooves as well as flat-faced, serrated trigger. The grips are usually made of molded plastic while the top of the slide is engraved with a fine wave pattern what reducing glare. On the slide under the ejection port is stamped a serial number. The CZ 70 Pistol in .32 ACP would make a great addition to any collection. Weather you are a collector or just looking for something cool to take to the range the CZ 70 fits the build.
