The BUL Cherokee is a polymer framed semi-automatic pistol made by Israeli firearms manufacturer BUL Transmark and is based on the Czech-designed CZ 75. It is the successor to the BUL Storm. The Cherokee is equipped with a tactical rail (for lights, etc.), three-dot windage adjustable sights (night sights optional), and enlarged trigger guard, frame-mounted thumb safety and half-cock safety; no magazine safety. The frame is an injected, fiber-reinforced polymer construction. The barrel and slide are forged 18CrMo4 and 34NiCrMo6, respectively. The new models have a natural grip angle (104 degrees). Chambered only in the 9mm Parabellum (aka 9mm Luger or 9×19mm).
