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

Now THAT is one fine looking .45!  I have loved and shot 1911s for far more years than I care to count. This picture above just might make me "cheat" on my 1911s.

They are sweet. A little trigger work, and they're a sweet shooter! The 97B is the first firearm outside of my 1911s that I truly enjoy sending 45acp through

Actually, found those on the CZUSA shop site. I really liked the looks of the angular black aluminum ones, but they were just a tad too thin for my hand.

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?

Well, if you are a fan of 1911s, don't buy at CZ 97, don't look at a CZ 97, don't hold a CZ 97, and certainly do not, under any conditions, shoot a CZ 97.

The sad reason is that you'll never look at 1911s the same again, "What a nice WWI relic! Got a tin helmet and a gas mask to go with that?"

My two beautiful Kimber 1911s are now safe queens. That's what the 97 does to 1911s.

I just finished a year (Sept through July) of using my 97B in USPSA competition. I have been a Single Stack guy for a number of years and wanted to give the CZ a shot in L-10. Since May of 2016 I have put just over 4300 rounds through it. I has run flawlessly. EXCEPT mine does not like SWC bullets. I was looking for a holster to use in competition and I found that the Bladetech holster for my SP-01 also fits the 97B, if you loosen the tensioning screws. The big CZ performed as anyone would expect.

That is a high recommendation!  Happy to hear the pistol has been a good one.   :D

I had a little problem with mine to start with trying to use SWC's but I soon found that ACME's 200 grain coated SWC loaded out to 1.245 to 1.250 works like a charm. Mine gobbles them up like Pac-Man and shoots them into little tiny clusters. I use their 230 coated RN for competition and never have a problem but mine likes their SWC's just as well.

Yea, I run the same 45 SWC, Flat Point and Round nose in the 97 that I do in my 1911 with good results.
 I did need to shorten the OAL about 2-3 /1000  on the Flat point to get them to fully chamber but that's all the problem that I have had with the 97.
it also eats so far every self defense round that I have fed it.

No surprise to me; if the 97 isn't the best .45acp on the market, please let me know what is.

I absolutely love my 97BD!  It puts me in a great mood every time I take it out to the range.

I have been considering picking up a Dan Wesson Valor, since I have never personally owned a 1911.  The way some of you guys are comparing your 97s to your 1911s ... are you saying I will be disappointed w/ the Dan Wesson?

I have a CZ 97BD Love it . Installed  a FF3 Red Dot shoots amazing. Trying to work some kinks with Springer Precision mount screws backing out of mount . (Not Dovetail )after 100 rounds happened  twice  even with Blue loctite. Maybe old loctite? Will have to try new bottle of Loctite.
