Another sight(s) question
« on: March 15, 2019, 06:47:24 PM »
Wondering if the tfx pro front and czc tactical  rear will work. I've had the cgw ez/d set before and like them but want to try something different this time.  Pictures attached of what I'm looking at.

Thanks. I have been thinking about new sights for mine too. Might go with the Mepros from CGW and use it as a truck gun.

Wondering if they really work, being the 97 has a different front sight height than the 75.

I've been researching these sights. This is gonna be the deal breaker for me.  
All of my other pistols have the standard sight picture. I don't want to have anything extra to think about if I really need to use my pistol.

I installed the tfx pro 75b set on my 97b.  It shot a good 4” low at 7 yards.  That’s with a #8 rear sight.  With the tfx front sight and a cz #12 rear it’s dead nuts on with a combat hold.

I’m working on modifications to the tfx rear to raise the mounting .140 to correctly line with the front.

Would be very interested in this. When you say cz #12, are you talking about the rear sight that comes on the 97?

In more detail, we know the 97 needs a taller rear than the 75.  The tfx sights are for the 75.  The rear is very much tooo short.  I installed them on my 97 and it shot very low so I removed the tfx rear and installed the #8 cz sight that came with my 97.  With the tfx front and cz rear it shot 4” low so I installed a cz#12 rear for the 97 and it’s dead nuts on.  The tfx rear needs about .140 more height.  I’m working up a riser block for the rear tfx.  The front tfx is great for combat but too large for a target sight.

Thank you.  Great information. I am looking for something for day/night for carry. Yes I may occasionally carry my 97.

Btw, where did you find the #12 rear sight?

Purchased the #12 from cz USA.  I may have purchased the last one because it’s no longer listed.  The highest listed is a #10.
