Zastava CZ-10

     Notes: CZ in this case stands for Crvena Zastava, the arms factory where the pistol is made.  The weapon is a variant of the Yugoslavian Zastava M-70, which is a scaled-down Tokarev.  The pistol is of good quality and made of better materials than the M-70.

Zastava CZ-99 (HS-95) Scorpion

     Notes: The “CZ” in the designation of this pistol refers to the Crvena Zastava factory instead of being a Czech weapon.  It was the most modern pistol being produced in the former Yugoslavia by the time of the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, and after a couple of years of war interruptions, went back into production. The CZ-99 relies heavily on the SiG P-220 for inspiration.  “HS-95” was the designation of the CZ-99 in the former Yugoslavia; it was redesignated after production restarted.  The CZ-99 is also imported to the US and sold there by Charles Daly; in this guise, it is known as the ZDA.

     Having been influenced by the design of the P-220, the CZ-99 uses a modified Browning-type operation, with an enlarged ejection port to aid in extraction.  The trigger is normally used in the double-action mode; there is no manual safety (except on the Charles Daly ZDA version and a modified form called the CZ-99S), but there is an ambidextrous decocking lever and an ambidextrous slide catch.  The CZ-99 also has an automatic firing pin safety.  The barrel is 4.2 inches long; the sights are fixed, but both are dovetailed into the slide.  The frame is of light alloy, with a stamped steel slide and grips of wrap-around molded rubber.

     The CZ-999 is a further development of the CZ-99.  It is interesting in that it has two trigger-action modes, selectable by a switch: “Pistol” (double-action; with subsequent shots being in single-action) and “Revolver” (double-action-only, with all shots being in double-action mode).  The CZ-999 also has a device to alert the shooter that his magazine is running low, in the form of a pin which extends into the shooter’s palm when the magazine is down to three rounds or less.  (This, of course, makes the CZ-999’s magazines proprietary, though conventional CZ-99 magazines may also be used, foregoing this feature.)  The CZ-999 has an automatic firing pin safety, a manual safety, a decocker lever, and a chamber loaded indicator.  The standard sights are fixed, but they are mounted on dovetails so they may be removed and replaced.

     The EZ-9 is a progressive development of the CZ-999; the main difference is the addition of a MIL-STD-1913 rail under the dust cover. The EZ-9 Compact is a commander-length version of the EZ-9.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: In the Twilight 2000 timeline, the CZ-99 is still a Yugoslavian state design, and was manufactured by them.  However, the .40 Smith & Wesson version does not exist, nor does the CZ-999.

Zastava M-57/M-70

     Notes: These Yugoslav weapons are improvements of the Russian Tokarev pistol.  Both are mechanically similar to the Tokarev, with the addition of a safety catch and larger magazine capacity.  They are some of the standard Yugoslavian service pistols.  They were introduced into Czech military service in 1957, and the operation is basically the same at that of the TT-33 Tokarev.  However, the grip is longer and help one more round.  A variant of the M-70 was called the M-70 Lux; this version had a fully-ergonomic the slide, frame, and extractor and bolt were chromed.  The Lux was typically only issued to Serbian officers.

     The M-70 was a further development of the M-57. Both of them used a short recoil single action trigger action.  The rifling of the M-70 is more advanced and would make a shot tighter, more “willing” to hit it’s target (not applicable in game terms).  The M-70A was a variant that was chambered for 9mm instead of 7.62mm.  Barrel length for both the M-57 and M-70 is 4.57 inches.

     The M-70 Pocket Pistol was a smaller weapon based on the M-70, and blended the short recoil and Browning swing-link systems.  The standard version of the M-70 Pocket Pistol has a lighter slide chambering a .32 ACP cartridge.  The barrel is subcompact is 3.7 kg. The variant, the M-70(k) is the same pistol, but chambered for 9mm.  Otherwise, in outward design and some internals are identical.

     Today, there pistols are sold liberally on the export market.

Zastava M-88

     Notes: This weapon was conceived as a smaller version of the M-70 in 9mmP caliber, but the appearance has been altered such that the genesis of the weapon in the Tokarev is no longer so apparent.  The normal M-88 has the safety catch on the slide, but an M-88A version has the catch at the rear of the slide where it can block both the slide and hammer.  In the wake of the breakup of Yugoslavia, the status of this weapon is unknown.

Zastava PAP M-85 NP

     Though a shortened AK, the PAP fires 5.56mm NATO cartridges though standard AR magazines. It features a cold hammer-forged 10.25-inch barrel with the characteristic AK-74U flash suppressor on the tip.  Trigger pull is a bit long and creepy and is 5.5 pounds of pull weight. The rear sight is in the middle of the dust cover and the front sight is standard; the sight radius is close to that of a standard AK. It has a polymer magazine well which is slightly beveled and fits magazines snugly; this polymer mag well allows the AK-based weapon to use AR-based magazines.  The bolt will not lock back upon becoming empty.
