CZ-USA is the US-based subsidiary of Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod, a Czech firearms manufacturer. CZ-USA, based in Kansas City, Kansas, is responsible for the importation and distribution of CZ products in the United States.
CZ products are currently imported exclusively by CZ-USA, a subsidiary of the parent company, Česká zbrojovka a.s. Uherský Brod (ČZUB) of the Czech Republic. CZ firearms have been available through normal channels in the US since 1991, through such importers/distributors as Bauska, Action Arms, Magnum Research.
In 1997 ČZUB recognized the need to control its own destiny in a market as big as the US. Initially based in Oakhurst, California, the CZ-USA headquarters and warehouse facility was moved to Kansas City in January 1998. CZ-USA also owns Dan Wesson Firearms based in Norwich, New York, maker of a variety of pistols, including semi-automatics and revolvers since 1968.
Many CZ products sold by CZ-USA are imports from the Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod factory, but there are several uniquely American CZ-USA products, notably the line of Safari Classics rifles and the 550 Tactical Rifles. All of these products are built by CZ-USA's custom shop in Warsaw, Missouri.
