A nice CZ-99 handgun, excellent condition, original oil blue finish, has matching numbers. This is deactivated gun. CZ-99 CZ 99 is a full-sized, semi-automatic service pistol produced by Zastava Arms. It was developed in 1989 to replace the Zastava M57 in the Yugoslavian Military and Police. Design of the CZ 99 was based on SIG Sauer P226 while the frame design was influenced by Walther P88. The CZ 99 is chambered in 9×19mm Parabellum and .40 S&W. In the late 1980s Yugoslavian police and the military had been looking to replace the aging handgun models in use at that time, such as the Zastava M57 and Mod.70. Development team at Crvena Zastava, led by Božidar Blagojević had been given a challenge to complete the design of this new gun and move to the prototype stage in a very short time period of only 5 to 6 months. Accepting this challenge, the engineering team had completed the technical documentation in only 90 days, and by the end of 1989 the design had been finalized. The team moved to the prototype stage. The prototype had been completed just in time for the 1990 Las Vegas S.H.O.T. Show where it was presentred for the first time to the public. Taking the feedback regarding the design, Zastava had made some changes to the original design and introduced the second, much-improved prototype at the IWA show in Nurenberg, Germany. This modified prototype received positive feedback and Zastava had produced further two prototype units which were shipped in August 1990 to USA for further testing. As tests results were positive it had been decided to move to mass production by early 1991. The total investment of $2 million USD went into modernizing the manufacturing line with state of the art CNC machines. With assembly line modernized, everything was set for mass production by early 1991 as planned.
