400 corbon
« on: April 30, 2005, 07:25:47 AM »
Does anybody make a 97B barrel in 400 corbon??  I want to use it for backup in hunting it would be nice if it was a 6" barrel.  Any other accessory link would be apprecieated!
only alternative would be a 10mm glock with a 6"(yuck!)

No.  Bar-Sto MIGHT make you one, though.  (But now is the time to talk to them, as they're getting ready to do their once-a-year CZ production run.)

A better alternative might be the EAA Witness 10mm.  Its very similar to the 97B, but slightly smaller in the grip.  Its one of the more popular and durable 10mm, and fits my hand much better than the big brick-like Glock 10mm.   (They can be had for around $350 -- and you'll spend 2/3s of that getting a custom barrel.)

(I like Glocks, but not their .45s and 10mm guns.)

I agree w/ Walt - the EAA 10mm is the way to go for hunting.

Would one in .357 SIG be a more practical choice?

In fact, it would be less practical -- 1st because you'd still have to have a barrel made, and 2nd because mags made to fit the 97B wouldn't work with the .40 cartridge that is the basis for the .357 SIG round.  You'd have to find some EAA large frame .40 mags to even hope it would work.  I don't know whether the breechface and extractor could be made to work on the .40/10mm conversion and the .45 slide.  Maybe.  With .400 Corbon, it would't be an issue.

Back to the basic point -- if you're looking for something other than .45 on a 97B frame, you're going to have to wait until CZ pulls one out (somewhat less likely now that Dan Wesson is offering a 10mm 1911-style gun), or go for an EAA gun.

EAA guns are the same basic design, and have a smaller grip.   (I have one of the nicer Witnesses, a "Sport Long Slide", and have a 10mm Conversion top end.  Its a nice gun.)
