CZ Shadow 2
In recent years, the SP-01 Shadow has taken the competition circuit by storm. In USPSA Production Division, twice as many top-level competitors are using CZ pistols than any other makers. Given that popularity, it was high time to up the ante.
Starting from scratch, CZUB engineers took the best features of the original Shadow and improved upon them. More than two years later, we’re seeing the fruits of their efforts. Shooter’s hand is able to be as close to the bore axis as possible, because of the higher beaver-tail and undercut trigger guard. Also, the majority of the reciprocating mass is centred on the bore, with the contoured slide. Thus, leading to less muzzle flip on Shadow 2. Increased weight at the dust cover/rail as well helps keep the muzzle down.
The Shadow 2’s swappable mag release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings. The design is to allow shooters to set it in the spot most comfortable for them. Best of all, new trigger components give smooth DA and crisp, clean SA while drastically reducing trigger reset.
A hardy nitride coats the entire pistol, leaving it nearly impervious to corrosion, while the frame gets an additional layer of our black Poly-coat finish. Thin blue aluminium grips have healthy checkering to match the fine front and back-strap checkering of the pistol itself. Sitting atop the slide are a set of target sights — fibre optic on front and a serrated, black HAJO rear (click adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage).
CZ Shadow 2 Optic Ready
The first factory modified CZ pistols for the easy and highly stable mounting of modern compact collimator sights. Including many popular brands (e.g. Trijicon, Vortex, Meopta, Leupold, etc).
The specially designed mounting plates have been machined and covered with an extremely durable surface finish by nitride coating. The slide modification is the result of unique CZ know-how. Thanks to this, we have managed to perfectly match the shape of the plates with the design of the firearm, thus achieving an exceptionally low position for the collimator sight without compromising the safety and reliability of the firearm.
The main advantages of the CZ Shadow 2 Ready Optics pistols include:
- exceptional robustness, strength and durability of the mount;
- low mount height;
- easy sighting of the collimator sight even at longer distances;
- option to use raised co-witness mechanical sights in case of any failures of the optics (for the CZ P-10 C Optics
- Ready in the standard design, for the CZ Shadow 2 Optics Ready a special plate with a rear sight is being prepared);
- compatibility with many popular collimator sights;
- design coordinated with the original CZ pistols.
