The ZH-29 was a semi-automatic rifle developed in Czechoslovakia during the late 1920s and used by Chinese military forces. The ZH-29 is one of the first successful self-loading rifles in service.


The ZH-29 is a gas operated service rifle with a locking system similar to that which would be later used in the Sturmgewehr 44. The most distinctive feature is that the barrel is offset at a slight angle to the receiver.
