CZ Launches CZ Shadow 2 Compact Model

in Industry News, News Wire, This Week

CZ introduced the SHADOW 2 COMPACT this week, a cutting-edge addition to its high-performance pistol line-up. This model boasts the familiarity of CZ’s full-sized SHADOW 2 but in a more manageable size.

Engineered for those desiring an accurate, easy-to-carry pistol, the SHADOW 2 COMPACT apparently shines in its advanced construction and competition-ready features.

It shares the reputation of its predecessor, recognized for multiple world championship titles in the IPSC Production and Production Optics divisions.

The dimensions stand at 7.5 (L) × 1.4 (W) × 5.4 (H) inches. With a forged 7075 aluminum frame, it weighs a mere 2 lbs, making it ideal for concealed carry.
