New for 2019: CZ Shadow 2 Orange

posted on June 9, 2019

The popular CZ Shadow 2 pistol from CZ-USA is a fixture in USPSA and IPSC Production divisions events, dominating the field with smooth trigger and features that competitive shooters want. The new Shadow 2 Orange from CZ-USA builds upon that heritage of performance with more features, that go way beyond its orange colored grip panels.

The essential parts of the CZ Shadow 2 Orange are hand-fitted for exacting precision and consistent shot placement. The barrel is polished to improve accuracy has an added bushing for increased stability. The trigger is fine-tuned for a smooth, crisp break and a quick, definitive reset.

The CZ Shadow 2 Orange also comes with a competition hammer and an adjustable aluminum magazine-release catch. The Shadow 2 Orange magazine has an orange-colored aluminum base, and an orange-colored enlarged left safety catch provides a more secure surface. Flat surface safeties and a flat slide stop may be purchased separately. 

Like the original Shadow 2, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange also has extensive checking on the front and backstrap as well as the aluminum grips to ensure a solid hold, no matter what conditions you find at a match.

The Shadow 2 Orange has a fiber-optic front sight paired with a serrated, black HAJO rear which is click adjustable for elevation and drift adjustable for windage. The high beavertail and undercut trigger guard provide additional stability, and the swappable magazine release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings.
