First Look: CZ Shadow 2 SA

First Look: CZ Shadow 2 SA

CZ-USA recently expanded its popular Shadow 2 line of competition-ready pistols with the new CZ Shadow 2 SA, a single-action pistol with a smooth and light trigger feel which sets the standard for handgun triggers.

Unlike the standard Shadow pistol with its traditional double action/single action trigger, the Shadow 2 SA is not legal for USPSA’s Production Division. However, its lighter, crisper SA trigger gives the target-shooting enthusiast the ability to punch paper and hit targets with unmatched precision.

The new Shadow 2 SA is chambered in 9 mm and is identical to the standard Shadow 2 on the outside. Like the original Shadow 2, the CZ Shadow 2 SA sports aggressive checking on the aluminum grips for a solid hold. The pistol is finished in black and with a set of blue aluminum grips and a blue trigger, and the Shadow 2 SA features the same shooter-friendly ergonomics of the Shadow 2. Ideal for plinking, or 3-gun competitions, the front and backstraps are checkered for added grip, even when the shooter's hands are dirty and sweaty from running stages.

Other features of the Shadow 2 SA include a 17+1 magazine capacity, a fiber-optic front sight, a black HAJO rear sight that is click adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage, a three-position adjustable mag release and an ambidextrous manual safety.
