CZ 75 Kadet

The CZ 75 is a pistol made in the Czech Republic that has both semi-automatic and selective fire variants. It is one of the original "wonder nines" and first was introduced in 1975. It has a good reputation amongst pistol shooters for quality and reliability and is widely distributed throughout the world. It is also the most favourite sport gun in the Czech Republic.

A .22 LR caliber slide/ barrel assembly and magazine kit to fit onto most standard CZ 75B frames (except the Tactical Sport and SP-01 Phantom). The Kadet also used to be sold as a complete pistol (slide assembly and frame), but is now only sold as a slide assembly to be mounted on existing frames.
