CZ-USA Shadow 2 Orange Competition Pistol

CZ-USA have announced the introduction of the Shadow 2 Orange Competition Pistol. It features new aluminum grip panels with an orange finish and the pistol’s trigger, hammer, and sear are hand-fitted, while the barrel has a new bushing. Adding to the orange motif the pistol has an orange magazine release. MSRP is $2,245.00.


Here’s what CZ-USA have to say about the Shadow 2 Orange Competition Pistol:

“Turning the Shadow 2 up a notch, CZ-USA released the CZ Shadow 2 Orange 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, in a nod to previous premium CZ-USA products 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 trigger, hammer, and sear of the CZ Shadow 2 Orange are hand-fitted for exacting precision, shot after shot. The barrel is polished and sports a new bushing to improve accuracy. The trigger is tuned for a smooth, crisp release and offers a short reset.
Also, the CZ Shadow 2 Orange is equipped with a competition hammer and an adjustable aluminum magazine release catch. The magazines have matching orange aluminum basepads and the gun features an extended safety. 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.”

    I love how without fail, these posts are always filled with commenters trying to rationalize why they won't be buying an expensive gun
