CZ Shadow 2 Orange
CZ reports that more than half of competition shooters worldwide use CZ 75’s in some form, and the Shadow 2 Orange is a perfect evolution of the CZ 75 for competition. It’s a got a better hand fit — and those orange grips feel really good in the hand — and the steel barrel and guide rod are polished to a high shine to for a tight lock up and precise fit.
It’s got a fiber optic front sight with blacked-out elevation and drift adjustable rear sights. The barrel is 4.89″ long, guaranteeing it will meet competition standards by a full millimeter. It ships with 3 magazines with metal baseplates.
But the best thing about the Shadow 2 Orange is the trigger. It comes from the factory with a terrific trigger with a very short reset and a crisp break. The double action pull is between 7 and 8 lbs, while the single action pull is about 3lbs. It’s the kind of trigger you’d expect to pay to upgrade to, so they’ve saved you the trouble.
The Shadow 2 Orange’s MSRP is $1999 and it’s available now.
