CZ Shadow 2 represents today’s generation of the legendary CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow. This weapon was developed in collaboration with the elite CZUB IPSC shooters to significantly contribute to speed and accuracy during competitions. Using cutting-edge production equipment, a pistol was born that pushes the boundaries of IPSC sports shooting even further.
The modernization of all the principal parts of the weapon, i.e. the slide and the frame, together with the extended barrel, enables shooting more rapidly and more dynamically. The shape of the frame facilitates a more comfortable higher grip towards the axis of the barrel, while the new checkering ensures absolutely reliable contact with the weapon in any circumstance. The increased weight of the front part of the frame and the slide results in a higher level of compensation and a gentler recoil. The innovative trigger mechanism has a smooth action, a low resistance and a shortened trigger reset. The magazine catch is more easily accessible and is adjustable to three positions, which makes reloading safer and quicker even if the shooter is moving.
The extending of the barrel to 120 mm together with the new and longer height-adjustable sights also increases the overall accuracy of this weapon. Fully automated technology for the production of all major parts by utilizing extremely precise robotic machining centers with no manual labor also contributes to the high quality of the weapon’s crafting. The Arcor finish that was inspired by the design of the service models ensures the weapon’s high resistance to corrosion, weathering or mechanical damage.
Every shooter is unique. This is why a wide variety of custom accessories are available. During the testing period hundreds of thousands of rounds were fired under real competition conditions. In the same manner, the CZ Shooting Team, competing in individual IPSC situations, achieved a degree of acceleration in units of seconds when compared to using the original model of the Shadow. In the beginning, suggestions and ideas were provided by the best IPSC shooters on the planet. After more than two years of research and development there is now a unique new weapon, which will inevitably become the rightful successor to the original model. The CZ Shadow 2 is now really competition ready!
