The ČZW 9 PS was a Czech submachine gun designed and manufactured by Czech Weapons s.r.o in prototype form only in 2004.


The developmental history of the ČZW 9 PS is not well documented; however, it is said to be designed to "significantly increase firepower" when deployed in light reconnaissance units. The ČZW 9 PS is also designed to be used by law enforcement agencies.[1] It, like most other ČZW weapons, appears to be a testbed for delayed blowback technology.
