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.
The 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. the 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 machine guns, the ability to dissipate heat rapidly makes the barrel capable of lasting longer due to a shorter expansion/contraction cycle. The barrel is hard-chromed (inside and out) to protect from corrosion and wear of corrosive service ammunition used by the Yugoslavian Military and Police
This firearm was supposed to be named CZ 89 (Crvena Zastava 1989) but the 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, the new gun was going to be known as the CZ 99
Many parts are interchangeable with the Israeli Golan. The primary differences between the CZ99 & Golan are cosmetic variations. The internal design is nearly identical between the two. Arguably the "Machine gun" 4.25" CZ99 barrels are superior to the Golan 3.9". The Israelis however refined the slide release/ decocker. Wherewith the CZ99 it is primarily just a functioning decocker. For best "live fire" function with the CZ99 after the slide locks back, insert a loaded mag, pull the slide back, and release. To release the slide without ammunition, remove the mag, pull the slide back, and release.
