The ČZW-9PS is a submachine gun of Czech origin, chambered in the 9x19mm Parabellum round. As the weapon uses delayed-blowback, it is somewhat comparable to the Heckler & Koch MP5.[1] A carbine variant exists as the ČZW-9FC, this uses straight blowback firing from a closed bolt and has a higher rate of fire.[2]
