The Zastava CZ 99 is a semi-automatic pistol produced by Zastava Arms. It was developed in 1989 to replace the M57 in the Yugoslavian Military and Police.

These pistols are rated Good- Very Good surplus. From the wear marks I suspect they spent most of there service life with a hand on them in the holster. The internals look great. Grips look very good (no chips) From the ones we inspected the barrels are Excellent to like NEW

Design of the CZ 99 was based on SIG Sauer P226, while frame design was influenced by the Walther P88 with some ambidextrous controls (slide release / decocker / magazine release), and Browning cam-lock system adapted from the Hi-Power pistol. However, the CZ 99 is not a copy of either, but rather borrows from all designs. frame is made out of PD 33 aluminum alloy while the slide is machined out of hammer forged steel.chambered in 9×19mm Parabellum / Luger with a 15-round magazine.

Fun Facts -

The hammer-forged hard-chromed barrel is made from the same material used in the Zastava M84 General-purpose machine gun. In the tests done in the USA in 1991/1992 it was found that it dissipated heat rather well. While this is not a concern with handguns nearly as much as it is with the machine guns, the ability to dissipate heat rapidly makes barrel capable of lasting longer due to a shorther expansion/contraction cycle. Barrel is hard-chromed (inside and out) to protect from corrosion and wear of corrosive service ammunition used by Yugoslavian Military and Police

This firearm was supposed to be named CZ 89 (Crvena Zastava 1989) but prototype displayed during 1990 S.H.O.T. was mistakenly engraved "CZ 99" instead of the "CZ 89" It had never been completely clarified whether the engraver had mistakenly engraved "99" instead of "89" or if the work order had an error in it but either way, new gun was going to be known as the CZ 99
