Kansas City, KS-( To kick off the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, CZ-USA is proud to announce the new CZ Shadow 2 Orange pistol, a pistol designed and manufactured for the competitive shooter who wants to win.

A variation of CZ-USA's very popular CZ SHADOW 2 pistol, currently in use in USPSA & IPSC Production Division events, the Shadow 2 Orange features new aluminum grip panels finished in snappy- looking orange. The improvements in this Shadow model go well beyond coloring.

The main parts of the CZ Shadow 2 Orange are hand fitted for exacting precision, shot after shot. The barrel is polished to improve accuracy and now sports a bushing for added stability. The trigger is tuned for a smooth, crisp release and offers a very quick reset.

Also, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange is equipped with a competition hammer and an adjustable aluminum magazine release catch. The magazine has an aluminum base, and an enlarged left safety catch to provide a more secure surface. 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. The front and backstrap are nicely checkered, 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 provide additional stability, and the swappable magazine release has an adjustable, extended button with three settings.

    1. Sounds like they have put all the parts every competitive shooter puts on the base shadow 2 to make it comp ready for more than the component price. Worth it if you have no technical expertise or don’t want to invest in learning how your gun works. If you however have some basic hand eye coordination and are capable of reading a Brian Enos forum thread and watching a 20min YouTube video save yourself the money and buy an stock shadow 2 and the upgrade parts for the hammer and short resent disconnector, ditch the aluminium grips and get a lok grip. Hint 11lb main spring and 10lb recoil spring is a good starting point for tuning your shadow 2. Then spend the money you save on ammo and training, the two tings other than reliability that actually make a difference to your score and grade. That’s the way to get to GM.

      If your lazy or the opportunity cost of learning how to work on your gun is too high for you instead get this gun. Even if you do still ditch the alloy grips and try LOK grips. Humble opinion from a non sponsored competitive shooter keeping the GM’s honest.

    2. Got the CZ Tactical Sport Orange and it makes me look good on the range. This new model should be equally good! Contact the CZ custom shop directly and you will get one faster. The custom shop people are excellent!!!
