Invested again in my poor, neglected CZ-97

    I've even thought of selling it, you know. Once I got my Colt, my CZ-97B didn't go to the range much.

    Heck, though. I don't have the heart to part with it. It was my second pistol, but my first GOOD pistol, and that counts for something.

    So, I bought a High Noon holster and matching magazine carrier for it. I figure it'll make a fine carry gun for winter months and bulky clothing. In any case, I don't believe in having a full-sized working gun and not having a holster for it.

    You need some slimline grips and stainless guide rod from Jackash Custom.
    It will be your main carry gun.

    If you can use a file, make your own metal slide rod out of a door hinge pin..or large nail. I used a nail for mine..worked fine, cost nothing.

    I have a CZ-75 Guide Rod in there and a 16# recoil spring (and have for some time). It also has had a factory throat & polish.

    Slim line grips? Ogre, I wasn't aware of ANYBODY making CZ-97 grips.

    And do you have a contact for JackAsh Custom? One of their properly-sized guide rods would look better than the under-sized CZ-75 one.

    I sold mine. I lost faith in it after the barrel broke. Also I could not justify wasting a perfectly good 45acp round in the 97b when I had my Les Baer PII in 45acp and my pre-25 tricked out target revolver. It was just another chunk of steel lost in the safe, so it had to go.
