Nickel 97b
« on: June 28, 2019, 10:37:35 PM »
I would drive one hundred miles and I would drive one hundred more. Just to be the man that drove 200 hundred miles to get a 97b.

I just got this nickel 97b today. I think I did okay for $700




Now I need a 2-tone to fall in my lap and I will be set.

Yes. That is an rsr special.  Only 60-70 imported into the United states. I had one and sold. Regret it every time I see one.

Swap uppers for occasional 2 tone.

That is fantastic. That is an RSR Special.  I happen to have the RSR Special in all Nickel, the Dual-Tone and Glossy Blue.   All look gorgeous.

Never even knew these existed. Pretty sweet. Even better for the price!

I have the RSR special two-tone and the monotone nickel. They're both outstanding shooters. The two-tone has started to discolor a bit on the front of the grip where my fingers rest which is a bit disappointing, but considering how much I've shot it I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

@Cavalryman I have a satin nickel 85 Combat and I remember a post by the venerable Walt Sherrill suggesting Flitz paste to remove the discoloration. Actually here's his quote "CZ's Satin Nickel is a very durable finish and very low upkeep -- maybe a little Flitz once in a great while when the finish will darken just a little in the areas where your hand is regularly in contact. Flitz cleans THAT up mostly through chemical action -- so there's less abrasion than most polishes."
