    This one came with two barrels, one standard and one treaded.

    I wish my kit had come with a threaded barrel.

    I don't blame you. A nice "COVID accessory" for the CZ. It'll sure help make basic handling of the pistol a bit less costly for range time.


    Great-looking gun. CZ does such beautiful work.

    I installed the treaded barrel and a Tactical Solutions compensator, so I am ready for a trip to the range. 20201015_073548.jpg
    The barrel is held at the front by an adaptor while the slide moves to cycle. This is a unique system, can't wait to see how accurate it is. 20201015_074748.jpg 20201015_074812.jpg

    Threaded barrel ordered so I can use my can on my S2 Kadet conversion.

    1978 Colt with little to no rnds through it. I wish I could say it was mine. The Shadow to the left is the one I shot and my buddy owns both.

    as it stands now, i have 2 CZ's. my first was the 75B, (before the pandemic) and my latest is the 97B (actually during the pandemic), it was just sitting there amongst all the other .45 calibers!

    as time/budget allows as well as availability these days of the pandemic buying spree's, i hope to get a "few more" to add to a small collection i have started.

    can't seem to post pics

    I check online the big sports stores, and some times get indications that they have ammo in stock. But it takes a visit to actually fine any. I just walked into local Academy Sports and there on the shelf where CCI minimags, and Browning 9 MM. So I purchased what they allowed me, 3 boxes each. My wife did the same. We added 600 22 Lr. and 900 9 MM. to our stock. That is more than we shot from the last time I found ammo.
    So far we have increased our stock during this shortage while still enjoying our regular range visits.

    I got to the range and shot the standard barrel. I started out with CCI standard velocity 40 gr. hollow point. Then some CCI MiniMag, Federal Auto Match, and Remington Golden.
    The kit functioned flawlessly and was a pleasure to shoot. 20201112_135242.jpg
    THIS WAS FROM 25 FT.
    I will add that a couple stalls away from me was a shooter firing a full auto AR 15 pistol that acounted for some of my lack of accuracy.
