Features of the Pistol
The CZ 100 hand pistol has a number of important handgun features. The weapon is hammerless DAO (double action only), this means that the firing system is not under any tension unless the trigger is pulled. The weapon comes equipped with an automatic firing pin safety device. The weapon is constructed for easy one-handed cocking, with a significant protrusion on the slide behind the ejection port of the pistol intended for pushing against the edge of a fixed surface. The pistol uses the usual Browning cam for action. There is a relatively simple compensator on .40 S&W version. The tactical rail of the pistol allows for the attachment of a laser or flashlight, but only proprietary models.
