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.
