Default Cz 97

Any one running or have experience with the CZ 97?
How do you like it? Thin aluminum grips or wood? Which felt best?
Compared to 1911 and Sig P220 fit feel accuracy ?

thanks.

CZ's just fit me better, even the thicker 97 still feels more comfortable to me than a SIG or 1911 or HK. They are consistently on the high end of accuracy out of the box, and can be taken to as good or better than a Les Baer with a little tuning ... for a fraction of the price. At least that's the opinion of a few hardball 1911 shooters I know. Now that CMP has opened the field up, a few 97s are showing up. Aluminum took a little getting used to, rubber just feels more grippy.

Another fine option is an EAA Witness Match; I have a PM from one of the lead CZ smiths in the US expressing his suggestion that out of the box in 45, the EAA is a better value for the money and has an edge in accuracy.

Thanks. I don't need a 97 right now but wanted to start researching.
Like you I like the CZ feel. I sold a P226 a few years ago. The grip was too thick for me. I have a 75 compact. The grip is great and the ergonomics work well for me. I like to hear the same about the 97 (and clones).

I have a 97BD. VERY and I mean VERY accurate. so far has feed, fired and ejected everything I have put through it. CZ has always been great guns for me.

One can never have enough guns or ammo.

Payments I can do when buying: I can do Paypal, I eat any fees or a personal check you hold item until it clears. I do not do bank checks or postal orders. Way too hard for me to get in to do them.

If I sell one of my shotguns I'll be getting a CZ 97. If I can find one.

My CZ 75 SP01 is wonderful, and I suspect the CZ 97 will be also.
