The CZ 85 is a semi-automatic pistol chambered for 9mm Luger.[1]

It was manufactured in Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic) by Česká Zbrojovka. It is an updated version of the CZ 75, and has slight changes made to internal parts to increase reliability, and has an ambidextrous safety switch and slide stop, making the pistol suitable for both right- and left-handed shooters. The magazine holds up to 16 rounds. CZ weapons are known for their long service life and high reliability while using various types of cartridges.[1]

The CZ 85B is an up to date version with a firing pin block safety, squared off trigger guard, a ring hammer, and tri-dot sights. It is available in 9mm and .40 S&W calibers.
