With the Shadow 2 reigning as the gun of choice for most competitors in Production Division, the Shadow 2 Optics-Ready is poised to do the same in USPSA’s Carry Optics division.
Like the standard CZ Shadow 2, the Shadow 2 OR features a finely-tuned SA/DA trigger mechanism that provides a superior trigger pull and faster reset than the vast majority of comparable competition pistols available today. The slide and frame are hand-fit for exceptional accuracy, reliability and longevity. This hand-fitting coupled with a longer sight radius and an increase in weight over the original Shadow make Shadow 2 models even more shootable, increasing shooter speed and accuracy.
CZ engineers retained the illustriously ergonomic grip profile first debuted 45 years ago with the CZ 75, while the addition of prominent checkering on frontstrap and backstrap help secure the Shadow 2 in a shooter’s hand. Its swappable magazine release has an extended button that can be tuned to a shooter’s personal preference with three settings to accommodate differences in reach.
Finished in a hardy nitride, Shadow 2 pistols are extremely resistant to corrosion, adverse weather, and mechanical damage. Frames receive an additional coat of CZ’s proprietary Polycoat, a stout shell developed for and used on CZ’s extensive line of service pistols.
Given their accuracy, reliability and first-rate ergonomics, Shadow 2’s, including the new Shadow 2 OR, are fine choices for personal and home defense, too.
The CZ SHADOW 2 family represents the new standard in large-capacity, all-steel pistols for modern sport shooting disciplines, including USPSA and IPSC events. Good shooters become better shooters with Shadow 2’s in hand, while very good shooters become exceptional shooters!
