CZ took the already perfect Shadow 2 and created a competition ready Shadow 2 Orange. It has been improved by adding a 1911 style bushing, Shadow 2 Orange aluminum grips, polished barrel, tuned trigger, IPSC competition hammer, ambidextrous safety and adjustable magazine release.
Starting from scratch, CZUB engineers took the best features of the original Shadow and improved upon them. More than two years later, they’re seeing the fruits of their efforts. With a higher beavertail and undercut trigger guard, the shooter’s hand is able to be as close to the bore axis as possible. With a contoured slide, the majority of the reciprocating mass is also centered on the bore, equating to less muzzle flip. Increased weight at the dust cover/rail also helps keep the muzzle down.
The Shadow 2’s swappable mag release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings 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 polycoat finish coats the entire pistol, leaving it nearly impervious to corrosion. Thin aluminum Blue grips have healthy checkering to match the fine front and backstrap checkering of the pistol itself. Sitting atop the slide are a set of target sights — fiber optic on front and a serrated, black HAJO rear (click adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage).
