Anyone Running a 97B or 97BD?
« on: July 15, 2017, 10:14:48 PM »
Just curious to see who among us might be running a CZ in .45. Love the .45 round and love the looks of the 97BD.  Anyone to give a review?

Maybe you should check the 97 sub forum.

Yep!  Love my 1911's, love .45, love CZ's, the love child = CZ97B"E" :)
Just recently bought one from a member here which had been to CGW for the "E or Enhanced" make over. Wow, what a gun! Shoots as well as any of my 1911's (NH, WC, EB), can carry cocked and locked with 10+1 rounds of 230gr Federal HST goodness. Have about 200 rds through it and has run flawlessly. For some reason it doesn't seem to be a very popular choice amongst the CZers out there, not sure why but I guess when you think CZ handguns I guess you think of 9mm first. I do love shooting 9mm through an all steel gun and do also love my all steel CZ's as well.
The CZ 97 is a must have for me.

Yep. I've had my 97BD for several years now. Upgraded with some CGW parts and it is an awesome .45 ACP. Everytime I take it out I wonder why I still have 1911's in the safe. The 97 out performs them in every way.

Oh my!  :o  I was fearful of this.  Might be in the market now for another CZ.  Thanks everyone.  Sorry Mod I obviously missed this thread.  Thanks for getting my question into the correct thread.  :)

If i had found a 97B before i spent all the money on having 1911's built over the years i may have never considered waiting months for a .45. Since purchasing the 97 none of my other .45's have been out of the safe. The 97 is easily the softest shooting, most reliable, most accurate pistol you will find under $700.00 on the planet. With a little Cajun spice and a few simple modification the trigger on my 97 rivals any 1911 i have ever owned. Wouldn't trade mine for any 1911 i can think of and it would probably be the last gun i would sell if pressed into getting rid of all my firearms.

Drank the Kool Aid. Sold off my Sarsilmaz K2 45 and ordered a 97B.
It arrived Friday, will be at the club tomorrow to get acquainted.
CGW Pro-Package is on the way.
Stay tuned. More later..

After the Pro Package you will need to send it down South to CZisney Land for a nose job to get the ultimate experience.  ;D ;D ;D

Nose job is definitely in the plan. 
Just have to phase things a bit.

I love my 97B. It is my favorite 45. It did take me some time to develop my reloads for it. It didn't seem to like my 230gr Montana Gold HP. I was reloading them a little too long and had some failure to feeds.

I also added a rail to the gun in case I decided to use it for my bedside table gun or for more weight on the front end.

Mine's only a few weeks old, but I'm enjoying every minute of it.
