Over the years I have become a fan of the CZ line of pistols, and it was just a matter of time before they introduced a striker fired pistol. With the success of the P10C it was a solid decision to introduce other models such as one that is silencer ready. I had the chance to run the P10C and liked that pistol just fine but I needed more time and made arrangements to have a P10 C silencer ready test sample sent to me.
The P10C features interchangeable backstraps for a bit of customization to the grip area. The grip area is aggressively textured to aid in maintaining a solid purchase on the handgun. Field stripping is similar as other striker fired pistols: ensure the pistol is unloaded, withdraw the slide a bit, depress the take down lever, then ride the slide home while depressing the trigger to allow the slide to be removed from the receiver.
You will notice the factory 1/2×28 threaded barrel, industry standard for silencers in 9mm and smaller calibers. The trigger is what you would expect on a striker fired pistol, but still better than many I have worked with. The P10C features ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release. The Picatinny rail allows you to add what accessories you see fit.
The three dot night sights are designed to get the sights above the silencer, allowing you to get a proper sight alignment and sight picture. The added real estate on the silencer sights helps index and align the sights.

The P10C Silencer-ready turned out to be a fine pistol, after some 350 rounds downrange it proved to be plenty accurate and reliable, after a short break in period. When using a silencer, adding weight to the muzzle end of the barrel, the P10C needs a few magazines run through the pistol to break in the barrel fit to the slide. I noticed using 115gr 9mm rounds when incorporating a silencer I was getting the occasional failure to return to battery, and weak ejection. Going to a 147gr bullet weight this seemed to dissipate. Speaking to CZ about this I learned it does indeed take those few magazines to get the pistol broke in. Once I had ran through a few mags through the pistol there were no more issues. I would see this pistol serving well as a defensive pistol benefiting from the threaded barrel for adding that silencer for home defense. As stated in the video I am a firm believer in using a silencer on a home defense firearm to suppress the firearm’s report. With the threaded barrel, accessory rail, ambidextrous magazine catch, and ambidextrous slide stop you have plenty of options for this striker fired CZ.
