The new CZ Shadow 2 competition pistol
IWA 2016 – In 2006, the new excellent CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow pistol was introduced, a pistol which soon dominated the IPSC Production division. After ten years, Česká Zbrojovka now presents the CZ Shadow 2 model, improving the perfection
The CZ Shadow 2 competition pistol has been designed on the basis of extensive experience, recommendations of elite shooters of the CZ Shooting team and using up-to-date production equipment. The process has brought to a pistol which exceeds its famous predecessor – the CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow – in all key factors.
The shooting speed of the CZ Shadow 2 pistol has increased, thanks to the new shaped frame whose ergonomics brings the shooter's hand more to the barrel axis. Thanks to the sport checkering on the front and rear wall of the pistol grip, the grasp is reliable in any circumstances.
It is also given by the characteristic flat, blue anodized aluminium grip plates. (Rubber grip plates are offered for shooters preferring a wider grasp.) The newly designed breech contributes to faster operation.
The rebuilt trigger mechanism runs in a smoother way, has a lower resistance and shortened trigger reset. Return and main springs are available, with various resistances and compatible with the CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow model.
The basis of the big accuracy potential of CZ Shadow 2 is the 125mm barrel, 180mm sight line and new adjustable sights. Precise production on automatic machining centres contributes to the accuracy of the gun. The extraordinary lifetime of main parts is increased by the highly resistant arcor surface finish.
The basic CZ Shadow 2 accessories include three magazines with the imposing capacity of 19 cartridges (magazines of previous standard models of CZ 75 series can be also used), for which the magazine holder is provided with a big adjustable fingerboard. Each pistol is Competition Ready, tuned in production to achieve the best performance directly from the box.
The practice has already confirmed that a new age of the Production division: with the CZ Shadow 2, top IPSC shooters are able to shorten times by three seconds compared to the original CZ 75 SP-01 model!
