The ZH-29 is a Czechoslovak semi-automatic rifle designed in the late 1920s. The rifle is gas operated and uses a novel side-tilting bolt that would go on to influence locking systems on future weapons. This system necessitates that both the barrel and sights are offset to the left side of the receiver, giving it a unique asymmetric profile.
While adopted in only in small numbers in its nation of origin, the ZH-29 saw more success on the export market, where it was sold to a number of African, Asian and South-American countries, the most prominent being the Republic of China. It was also trialled in the United States and Japan, the latter of which produced local copies on a limited scale before World War II. After Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazi Germany in 1938, a number of confiscated ZH-29s would see service with the Wehrmacht.
