I dont have any 97s but I do have three 83s. Just an absolute work of art.

I do not have one.

But I have checked out a few of them. Although I have never had a chance to fire one. I really do not see where you could go wrong there. They exhibit some of the best machine work that I have ever seen. And I have never heard anyone say anything bad about them or have any trouble with them.

Interesting quote attributed to Mr. Bowen years ago, went something like- "I can do just about anything you'd like to a Ruger SA(which he holds in high regard), but when I'm done it still won't compare to a Freedoms Arms...
I have a well worked-over Bowen Ruger myself, but pine for a short-barreled, round butt 97 some day...
