Turning the Shadow 2 up a notch, CZ-USA released the CZ Shadow 2 Orange pistol, designed and manufactured above all for the competitive shooter who wants to win.

The Orange is a variation of CZ-USA’s very popular CZ Shadow 2 pistol, currently in use in USPSA & IPSC Production Division events. Thus, in a nod to previous premium CZ-USA products, the Shadow 2 Orange features new aluminum grip panels finished in snappy-looking orange. Although the improvements in this Shadow model go well beyond coloring.

CZ-USA Shadow 2 Orange Competition Features

A hand-fitted trigger, hammer, and sear deliver match-grade precision, shot after shot. This is in addition to a new bushing that enhances the Shadow’s already excellent accuracy. Last, the tuned trigger breaks smoothly with a positive, short reset; perfect for nailing fast splits.

Furthermore, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange is equipped with a competition hammer and an adjustable aluminum magazine release catch. Equally important, the magazines have matching orange aluminum basepads and the gun features an extended safety. Also, a set of flat safeties and a flat slide stop can be purchased separately.

Like the original Shadow 2, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange sports aggressive checking on the aluminum grips for a solid hold, even when the shooter’s hands are dirty and sweaty from running stages. In addition, the front and rear backstrap are nicely textured for enhanced grip.

Upgraded Shadow 2 Sights

In addition to the upgraded trigger, shooters will get on target fast thanks to the pistol’s fiber-optic front sight paired with a serrated, black HAJO rear (click adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage). The higher beavertail and undercut trigger guard provide additional stability, and the swappable magazine release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings. As a result, the gun is as easy to customize as it is to shoot.
