CZ 97 B Capacity

The CZ 7 B is chambered in .45 ACP and feeds from a double-stack, single-feed magazine with a capacity of 10 rounds.  There are no larger magazines available either from CZ nor aftermarket suppliers.

CZ 97 B Ergonomics

The CZ 97 B has highly-textured grip panels along the sides of the grip and features front and rear slide serrations, both offering plenty of control for typical use.  The frame wraps around the slide to form the slide rails to allow for larger controls such as the slide stop and safety and also prevents dirt, dust and other foreign objects from getting inside the gun.  The trade off is less surface area when manually cycling the slide.

CZ 97 B Fit & Finish

The CZ 97 B is made entirely of steel and stainless steel components short of its grip panels which can be made of anodized aluminum or made of a beautifully checkered wood.  Its steel components are blued for a matte black finish that holds onto oil and prevents damage from moisture while its steel components are hardened to prevent damage from wear.

Fit and Finish

CZ 97 B Concealability

The CZ 97 B measures 8.3 inches long and 5.9 inches tall making this gun very difficult to conceal without the right holster and heavier attire.  The beavertail above the back of the grip, the rear sight and the exposed hammer can cause discomfort when carrying in certain positions.
