CZ97B was on the cover of the wonderfully photographed CZ catalog from 2000. Especially with the 10-round limit then in force, a “natural 10-rounder” in 45ACP felt like a perfect package. It was something I had long wanted but still do not have. This pistol was a loan from the CZ Forum founder Chard.

    My CZ-97 is the most accurate .45ACP that I own. And, in the gloss blue finish- is absolutely gorgeous.

    I used to own one. I had to sell due to being, well ‘effin broke. I miss it very much. Never found another that I could afford. It was, like all CZ’s, incredibly accurate and reliable. I didn’t shoot it as much as my 1911’s, so it had to go to pay bills.

    I remember that time well. Once the 10-round limit kicked in manufacturers started using bigger bullets to fill magazines, and making smaller guns to fit the limitation. The anti-gun folks called them “pocket rockets” with a great deal of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Unintended consequences can be a bitch.

    From what I’ve read (I’ve never seen one), the CZ97 is said to be a quite large gun. It doesn’t look like that, in the hands of your model.

    Oh its a big gun, I’m 6’6″ and its perfect for me. My buddies, especially those with smaller hands or under 6′ love it but have a hard time with the size. I’ve never found a more accurate and comfortable shooting 45, and thats saying something considering I work on guns for a living.
