I am on the lookout for a new competition handgun, and the “new” CZ Shadow 2 for Production/Carry Optics looks like the hottest choice at the moment.
As any volume shooter knows, hitting your target consistently is all about having the best grip possible, and as I was doing market research about which handgun to chose I stumbled on what looks like a great product by a Slovenian company called Armanov.
Armanov is mainly focused on competition-related shooting accessories for rifles (mostly AR type, but also others) and pistols. They also have several clever upgrades for Dillon reloading machines, and they seem to be developing new stuff on almost a monthly basis.
Their new SpidErgo grips for CZ Shadow 2 and Shadow 1 pistols are “Made by shooters for shooters“. According to Armanov, they’re designed from the ground up for competition shooting, however, they’re suitable for a “working” gun as well (just get the black!)
They seem aggressively patterned and ergonomically contoured for a firm and controlled grip. And they don’t look bad either.
Here’s how Armanov describes them:
Freshly designed, top of the line 3D Spider Grips for your CZ Shadow competition pistol made out of finest, most durable, aircraft grade aluminium.
Special precision-machined texture, designed to keep your hand tight in place, will make sure you get the most out of your competition performance. These 3D grips are what you need to prevent any unwanted movement or sliding of your hand.
These lightweight grips fit on your CZ shadow 1 or 2 and comes in one perfect size. Furthermore you won’t need any extra screws, they assemble using the original grip-screws supplied with your CZ grips.
They’re lightweight and strong, machined from 7075 aircraft grade aluminum block and anodized to five colors: black, blue, red, gold and silver. Shaped ergonomically to fit your hand, not vice versa.
At the same time the back part of grips, the texture is smartly designed to position the web of your hand as high as possible, as quick as possible.
