The CZ Shadow and, more recently, CZ Shadow 2 remain extremely popular among competitive pistol shooters. Even the more recent CZ Shadow 2 Orange Competition Pistol saw a ton of buzz around its 2019 launch. Now fans of the platform get a single-action-only variant with the new CZ Shadow 2 SA. And this one is all about the trigger.
CZ Shadow 2 SA
Although not legal for USPSA Production Division, the Shadow 2 SA delivers a lighter, crisper single-action trigger. It gives target-shooting enthusiasts the ability to shoot paper with extreme precision, according to CZ-USA.
Outwardly identical to the standard Shadow 2, the new Shadow 2 SA also comes chambered in 9mm. It requires manually cocking the hammer for it to fire. Finished in black and with a set of blue aluminum grips and a blue trigger, it delivers a unique appearance.
The Shadow 2 SA features the same shooter-friendly ergonomics of the Shadow 2, and can be used for plinking, or 3-Gun competitions. Like the original Shadow 2, the CZ Shadow 2 SA 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 are also nicely checkered.
Other features include a 17+1 magazine capacity, an easy to pick up fiber-optic front sight, a black HAJO rear (click adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage), three-position adjustable mag release and an ambidextrous manual safety. Lastly, MSRP is $1,349. For more information, visit cz-usa.com.
