Bushing Modification – Conversion

CGW pioneered the precision barrel bushing for the 97 series.  This fixes the tendency of the factory threaded bushing to rotate during live fire, which will render the pistol inoperative.  The factory threaded barrel bushing is somewhat loose as well, robbing the 97 of it’s incredible accuracy potential.

CGW precision machines the slide to accept the proprietary 1911 style bushing, then we hand fit to ensure a -0- lock up, the gold standard.  This results in total reliability, and simultaneously delivers stunning match grade accuracy on par with custom 1911’s that cost substantially more.

Please contact CGW via email or by phone to schedule in your slide.

CGW has engineered a better CZ 97B/BD.  CGW pioneered the barrel bushing modification for CZ’s many years ago, making the 97 one of the most accurate 45’s on earth, regardless of price.  This also increases the reliability since on some occasions the screw-in bushing can rotate during recoil.  The CGW barrel bushing is 100% effective in eliminating this tendency.

Our best 25 yard group, using a solid sand bag rest is 5-shots, 9/16″ center-to-center with the CGW bushing system and a pet hand load.  Groups of 5/8″ to 3/4″ at 25 yards are common with this barrel bushing modification when using a developed hand load.
