CZ-USA recently announced the release of its newest competition pistol, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange. CZ says the Shadow 2 Orange is built for competitors who want to win.
A variation of CZ-USA’s popular Shadow 2 pistol, currently in use in USPSA and IPSC Production Division events, the Shadow 2 Orange features new aluminum grip panels finished in an eye-catching orange. However he improvements in this Shadow model go beyond the coloring.
The new Shadow 2 Orange features hand-fitted parts for exacting precision, shot after shot, according to CZ-USA. The polished barrel improves accuracy and sports a bushing for added stability. Meanwhile, the tuned trigger delivers a smooth, crisp release with a quick reset, according to CZ-USA.
The pistol also comes equipped with a competition hammer and an adjustable aluminum magazine catch. The magazine utilizes an aluminum base, while the enlarged left safety catch provides more purchase. CZ-USA also offers flat safeties and flat side stops separately.
Like the original Shadow 2, the pistol sports aggressive checking on the aluminum grips for a solid hold, even when the shooter’s hands are dirty and sweaty from running stages. The front and backstrap display nicely checkering, too.
Shooters 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 also provide additional stability, and the swappable magazine release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings.
