Default CZ 97B parts _unicorns?!?!?!

I just purchased a CZ 97B and I am very excited about it , I cant wait to pick it up next week. Being that it is CZ I thought there would be way more after market custom parts for this gun. I emailed Cajun gun works and asked them and they told me they are not aware of many parts for this gun. I have been searching for hours online and parts seem like unicorns.

Does anyone know if and or where I can find the following for a CZ-97B

1. threaded barrel
2. Compensator
3. Extended mag base plate. Not for capacity obviously good ol Cali haha just for weight and release
4. flat or shorter trigger
5.mag well

Thank you for any help you can give me,

Try CZ Custom. Although if CGW says there's not much, then there's not much.

All I did on my 97B was change the grips, the sights and shot the **** out of it.

What you're asking for describes a 1911.

I've been looking for a mag well for this gun for a long, long time. Never seen one. For base plates you'll have to search for a EAA witness large frame magazine base plate. They're out there in small numbers. Threaded barrels don't exists for this gun. A compensator would need to be a one off job, same with the magwell, or modify one that's close enough, maybe a tac sport but don't quote me.

For a mag well I've considered getting a block of aluminum or brass, taking measurements and just going to the mill to fab one.

Flat triggers, easy, extended mag release, cgw, you can use a shadow extended slide release too, cgw will modify it.

Welcome to the club of loving this pistol and wanting to take it to the limits, with only two companies making parts for it...

Majority of aftermarket CZ97 parts are custom made.

Also, note that in order to legally install a threaded barrel on a semi-auto pistol in CA, the pistol will need to operate using a fixed 10 or less round magazine.

IIRC the 75 tac sport in a 97 frame, so the magwell "should" fit.
the trigger, hammer & sear are the same as the 75.
as for the base plates & comp good luck.

threaded barrel, this is CA right?

Default Called them

You called CGW, so maybe you should call CZ Custom also. They made me an extended magazine release out of a Shadow Magazine Release.
