(IWA 2019) Arma Zeka AZ-P1 9mm Sport Pistol
Competition pistol market is getting more saturated in 2019 with more steel frame designs from the likes of Beretta and Walther joining the foray along with the ever popular Shadow 2, now in Optic Ready model which started to ship since late last year.
A new company called Arma Zeka, from Czech Republic had their new AZ-P1 9mm pistol on display at IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany. Their pistol had only been available within their home country of Czech Republic in the last few months. This was the first time they displayed it at an international show and they are looking for distributors worldwide.
The pistol features a 5″ bull barrel on an alloy frame. It’s chambered in 9mm but it will also be available in .40S&W and .45ACP. It does have a wide frame in comparison to other 9mm pistols. It has standard fiber optic sights with an adjustable competition DA/SA trigger. The only other notable feature is the captive take down pin.
I was told by their representative that the company first started as a machine shop producing small parts for CZ. It appeared it was only logical that the next step is to start making pistols themselves.
Unfortunately, at the time of the show they did not have pricing for the US market.
