None what so ever... but I did find an interesting information link to the actual manufacturer, ALFA proj. They've been around since 1993 and are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 : 2000 standard. The sport model, shown below, looks particularly interesting... if you're into that sort of gun.

The sport model is quite interesting. Looking at a 4 incher with adjustable sites (out of stock at czechpoint) Pretty affordable, I'd say, but don't know about quality or reliability which is why I asked. I guess you get what you pay for, eh?

The Czechs make great weapons as a rule. I would expect these to also be good. However, I have never seen one in person to know. For the price, I would be very interested.

At no place in the description did I see it mentioned that the gun was made or sold by CZ. Did I miss it somewhere?

After reading their history and the production capacity... 25K guns, 30K handcuffs and leg irons, from a total of 140 employees... and them being the second largest producer of "short arms" in the Czech Republic, I'd be inclined to give them a go as well.

Too bad any of the threads and videos regarding these guns are, so far, dumb, useless, or about the older Spanish Alfa revolvers.

That revolver is not made by CZ. Don't confuse the name CZ with the importer Czechpoint. Two completely different companies. Oh and the revolver is made by Alfa Proj, kind of the Czech version of a Charter Arms, or Taurus and that may even be an insult to CA and Taurus.

Care to explain what prompts you make a comment like this?

Isn't everything made in Czechoslovakia technically a CZ? But seriously, I understand they are not made in the same factory,etc. But the Czech's do make some good stuff, and these are quite reasonably priced.

I asked around about these guns,,,

I finally found one person who had purchased one.

He was not happy with his .22 revolver at all,,,
he had many complaints but fit, finish, and a lousy trigger were what he reported.

Rather than retype all he said,,,
Here is a link to that older thread.

I see alot about fit, finish, etc., but how do they shoot? History is full of "cheap" guns that are actually decent shooters. I found a Noble 22 rifle the other day for 100 bucks. Looked around on the web and they seem to have a pretty good rep as shooters. Seems like modern stuff, you get what you pay for. Didn't seem to be that way in the past. Maybe I'm just getting old.
