Those are Hogue fingergroove grips for the CZ 75B stretched to fit the 97B frame. They are pretty widely available and with some heat and elbow grease can be made to fit the 97B very well.

The bold type giveth, the fine print taketh away.

Thank you Jeff.
But "some heat and elbow grease" sounds to me complicated. Do you think that no one making rubber grips for CZ 97B ??

Not that I know of. I've heard some folks immerse the grips in  hot water to make the rubber stretchier, or used a heat gun or blow dryer and stretch it into place.

You'll be waiting a very long time, perhaps forever. ;)

Stretching Hogue CZ 75 grips onto the CZ 97B frame is really not all that hard.  Seat one side of the grip and screw it down. Then heat the front strap (finger groove area) with the blow dryer for about 10-15 seconds (using the High setting) and pull the other grip panel over until it lines up with the screw hole...

I am tempted to give this a try, as I am growing weary of waiting for Trausch to produce a set of composite grips for the 97B.  :D

You are very welcome. :)    I originally learned about the possiblity of using Hogue rubber grips for the CZ 75 on a 97B from others here on CZF.

Glad to hear they are comfy for you. :D  

Cheers!
