The Vz. 50 (also known as the CZ 50) is a Czech made double-action, semi-automatic pistol.

Vz is an abbreviation of the Czech (as well as Slovak) term "vzor" meaning model.

After the Second World War, Czechoslovakia's Ministry of the Interior requested a new pistol design from "Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod".

The resulting gun was chambered in .32 ACP and designed by two brothers Jan and Jaroslav Kratochvíl.

It combined elements from both the Walther PP and PPK.
