This roundup of new handguns was assembled shortly before Christmas, and you can bet my wish list grew by leaps and bounds as I worked on it. As is common most years, the new guns in this preview are typically refinements of existing models, which is a good thing because a lot of us look at Gun X and think “Boy, if they’d just add such and such, it would be perfect for me.”
Here’s a look at some of the best new handguns for 2013.
- While other offerings in CZ-USA's Custom Shop, the new CZ 75 Compact SDP is a carry gun. It’s a P-01 variant with a competition hammer, polished and tuned trigger (3.5 to four pounds single action, 7.5 to 8.2 pounds double action), and comes with tritium sights that include a Heinie Slant Pro rear.
