France Big Daddy CZ !
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:43:00 AM »
Hy guys !!!

Big Brother, Big Daddy.... Big something often is the alias of the CZ 97B !

I sold a Springfied 1911 mil spec. to get this CZ 97B.
In France, it cost 980€ (1200$)

I reload with Reload Swiss RS12 powder (so clean !!!!), CCI primers, and some ARES 230gn Epoxy, CAMPRO 230gn TC HP (excellent bullet !!) and for last LOS 230gn RN

My masterpiece :

BUT, I have an HUDGE problem !!!!!

Don't worry, I explain it !!

I do compétition… In France it is the FFTir (Fédération Française de Tir = French Federation of Shooting)

The compétition I do is the TAR (Tir aux Armes Réglementaires = Shooting with Official Weapons) and for this we need to use a weapon that is used to Army, Police, Secret Service, Specialized.....

But I don't find any information about that ! Do you know any police (I think no army use the 97B) department or other in the USA that use this weapon ?

If I don't find any proof of official users, I'll need to sold my 97B ....  :-[ :'(

Please..... help me !! I love that gun so much ! Better to my ex-Springfield .

If some information with shooting and legislation in France, I can tell you some things :

We shoot at 25 meters on C50 target (27,34 yards, square target 21 inches)

To have a gun in France we need :
-A Range favorable paper ("green paper") to get it, we need to do a Control Shooting book (3 control shoot per year)
-A civil status paper (ask it in city of birth)
-A proof to have a safe box (coffre fort)
-Write en official form with what we ask (pistol, riffle...) and many information !

We post all of this to city Prefecture, we wait for 1 month to 6 mouth (depend to city) and if we have chance and no justice problem, we get the autorisation to buy one weapon (or two if we ask for two... or three if we ask for three...)
So.... now we can go to our local gun shop buy the gun !!!
Yes, in France, legal weapon are very difficult to get ! (Illegal are so anywhere)

Thanks for reading, I hope you can help me !
Have a nice weekend !!!

Well the way I read this it seems you are asking if any police or military entity is currently carrying the CZ 97. I don't think there is any where that I've ever heard of. I'm sure there could be an officer out there somewhere who carries one if his department approves his use of it but I know of no place they are officially issued.

I bought a used 97b last year. The previous owner is a retired police officer. Or was his duty pistol.

Plus personne n'utilise le 45. Tu ferais mieu d'aller avec le 9mm ou le 40 S&W. Good luck.
Certainly a big thank you for the detailed French law, I was always wandering, in case I go back home and decided to shoot.

Lex, why don’t you contact CZ and ask them your question.  If a military or police force is using the gun then they should know.  Good luck.
