CZ97B

I'd look at a different gun shop! The 97B is an excellent pistol. Perhaps the best pistol that CZ makes. Just make sure that the grip fits your hand. I have two 97Bs and they both will out shoot my S&W, Ruger, Kimbers and Colt. Both my 97Bs have the polycoat finish which wears very well. Maybe your dealer makes a larger profit on Springfields than CZs, hence his motivation. BTW, I have had two Springfields and sold them both. Neither were bad guns, however they were not great guns either. I would never sell my CZ97Bs.

Best regards.

Craig

The 97B is a great gun -- one of the best shooting out-of-the-box .45s around.

The finish (polycoat) is very durable. (They're also available in a high-gloss blue that is almost as pretty as the old S&W and Colts.)

The gun is BIG, and the grip may be a stretch for some people. (It was for me, and I traded mine away... but have since found a source for thinner grips.) Its heavy, but not terribly so.

Get another dealer or, continue to use that one, just don't believe a thing he says. He's either badly misinformed or unethical. Or both.

Not a .45ACP fan, but the CZ97b almost changed that. Damned fine handgun!

CZ-97

I recently got CZ-97 and like this gun more and more.
And even factory grips could be made more comfortable by any CZ fan (who doesn't mind a bit of dust :lol: )



This is not a sale attempt but just experience I want to share

CZ97 is a great gun; underrated probably because it's not a "name" brand, is relatively affordable and is made in CZ. Mine initially did not want to reliably feed HP ammunition (nosedive), but the fine folks at CZ's Kansas City service center helped fix that. Now it works well with all ammo. Heavy and big but a joy to shoot...and very accurate. I fitted a Hogue rubber grip with finger grooves made for the Model 75; a really tight fit but it feels good. I won't part with mine.

I think I'm convinced. I have made three trips to my local CZ dealer (bugging them) and I'm ready to go on a 97B at last. I'm a great fan of the 1911 but this gun points a bit better for me.

I've got some Osage Orange in the shop that I use to restore old chisels. I think I may set some OO aside for some grips. I actaully have largish paws and would not mind a bit wider grips on this gun.

Progress report to follow.
