CZ is known for making some of the most popular guns in the competition world, and their experience in that field has resulted in some first-class defensive carry pistols. The new CZ P-10 F Competition-Ready pistol, however, followed a different path. The new P-10 F Competition-Ready is a product of the CZ P-10 C, the company's first striker-fired pistol. The P-10 C was designed as a compact polymer-framed gun for self-defense and military use and was followed by the subcompact P-10 S and the full-size P-10 F.

The new P-10 F Competition-Ready has a barrel and slide that are a half-inch longer than the full-size model, which provides a longer sight radius. The gun includes a fiber optic front sight and fixed serrated rear sight for increased accuracy. Also, just like other P-10 models, the slide is milled to accept mounting plates for most popular micro red-dot optics on the market, which is a must for any competition gun.

The pistol is outfitted with an Apex Tactical extended magazine catch, Apex Tactical extended slide stop, HB Industries trigger and Apex Tactical back-slide cover for increased performance. The half-inch longer barrel also has improved ramp geometry and a match 9 mm chamber which were both designed to improve the reliability and accuracy of the P-10 F Competition-Ready. Since every competition gun also needs a little flash, gold accents on the barrel slide cover and trigger, along with Henning Group magazine bases. This combinations makes this P-10 F Competition-Ready stand out in the P-10 line and on the firing line.

Like the original P-10 C, the new P-10 F Competition-Ready has a polymer frame that has three interchangeable backstraps and ergonomics similar to the hammer-fired CZ 75. The pistol also has a cold hammer-forged, 5-inch barrel with a black nitride finish for unparalleled accuracy and durability.

The new P-10 F Competition-Ready ships with standard 19-round magazines, and a 10-round version is available for purchase in restricted states.
