The CZ 97 B is a semi-automatic firearm incorporating a locked breech principle and double-action mode of fire. The handgun is equipped with manual safety, firing pin safety (block), and loaded chamber indicator. The magazine is of a double column type and has a 10 round capacity. The slide is locked open when the last cartridge from the magazine has been fired. The loaded chamber indicator indicates the presence of a cartridge in the chamber. A safety notch on the hammer prevents inadvertent discharge and the firing pin safety positively ensures drop safety of the pistol. The manual safety is designed in such a way so as to engage the pistol's safety mode while also enabling the "carriage" of the pistol while the safety is off and a cartridge is loaded in the chamber. At the same time it is safe for all normal handling. Characteristic features of all versions A large capacity double-column magazine. A comfortable grip and balance in either hand with good results at instinctive shooting (without aiming). A low trigger pull weight, and high accuracy of fire. A long service life coupled to high reliability. The slide stays open after the last cartridge has been fired, suitable for COMBAT shooting. The sights are fitted with a three-dot illuminating system for better aiming in poor visibility conditions-optional tritium or micrometrical sights can be fitted on request to the customer's specifications. Selective SA/DA firing mechanism operation.


Awesome pistol with superb performance

I owned a HK USP full size 9mm, a Sig Sauer P226, a Steyr M-A1, a Beretta PX4 Storm, i have Glocks, 21, 29, etc... I have a Walther p99, etc... And i never shoot a pistol like this one. The grip is amazing, the recoil soft, never a failure or jam, and is accurate like hell. At 25 yards stand, with no sand bangs, i hit all the clip in the center of the target easy. At 3 yards, all the bullets going trought the pinpoint center, at 7 yards same, at 15 yards i did groups of 1-2 inchs. When i shoot this pistol in the range everybody looking my targets and how i hit all, asking what pistol i have. Asking mee Glock and Springfield boys. Nothing shoot better that this pistol. The trigger is awesome, and after 800 rounds look like a tuned target trigger. This pistol is a state of art, with no rival. I owned several pistol, i'm going to the range every week, and this machine shock me. Now i'm going to trade my glock 21 for the cz 97b in 45acp. i Can't wait!!!
