The Zastava CZ 99 is a semi-automatic pistol produced by Zastava Arms.[1] It was developed in 1989 to replace the M57 in the Yugoslavian Military and Police. The frame design was influenced by the SIG P226[2][3] albeit with some ambidextrous controls like the Walther P88 Compact. The CZ 99 is primarily chambered in 9×19mm Parabellum with a 15-round magazine.

Over time though, newer versions of this firearm have been developed: The Zastava CZ 999, with DAO and DA/SA selector, as well as the CZ 999 Scorpion without this selector. Also features a loaded chamber indicator. Comes in compact model as well.[5]
