First topic message reminder :

Sacrilegious, I know . . . .  Sad  

I'm getting the urge to try another pistol for the 45 segment.  I'm wondering if any of you have had pleasant experiences with non-1911 pistols.  I know I can use a revolver, but I'd like to try an unconventional 45 semi auto.  Any advice?

Thanks,

Krogen

Looks good to me if the sights aren't too far apart, but I read a rulebook like Smokey Yunick would.

This CZ 97 was modified by Cajun Gun Works.  It has a great trigger and I like the ergonomics a lot.  They do a great job and the price is very reasonable for the gun and work.  

It's all steel and has a good heft.  The grip is large so I'd suggesting holding one before buying.

I have heard from other owners that get similar accuracy.

Thanks, guys!  You sure have given me a lot to think about.  Sometimes I just like to think outside the box which is why I'm looking at non-1911 guns.  I may focus on different grips for the 1911.  

Thanks for the chuckle, LenV . . . .  At times my targets look as if they were shot with a grease gun!

Your welcome. If you ever think about wheel guns do I ever have a great choice for you. Well, it is a .45 not sure how great a choice it is. Unless your interested in power then it is truly great. Very Happy

Mine is lighter than that but it can be adjusted.  I had the red dot on it to test the loads.  I'm going to put the iron sight back on and have the trigger set a little above 4lbs.  Is that the correct weight for service pistol?  Thanks, DF

Another fine choice. Not a lot of difference between it and a 1911 but enough to notice. I never fired one but I want one. S&W Performance Center 945
