Summary: The description, specs, pricing and photos of the CZ Shadow 2 pistol.

Manufacturer’s Description

The CZ Shadow 2 is a CZ 75-style semiauto pistol built on a steel frame with a steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. It’s CZ’s next-generation Shadow, and CZ says it incorprates the best features of prior Shadow pistols while including a number of enhancements. New features include:

  • A higher beavertail and undercut trigger guard to allow your shooting hand to move closer to the gun’s bore axis (and hopefully thereby enhance recoil control);
  • a contoured slide that centers more mass near the bore axis to reduce muzzle flip;

  • increased weight at the dust cover/rail to reduce muzzle flip;
  • an extended, cold hammer forged barrel;
  • a swappable, adjustable, extended magazine release button with three settings;
  • wider, angled cocking serrations front and rear;
  • new trigger components that CZ says provide smooth double-action pulls and crisp, clean single-action pulls while reducing trigger reset;
  • an Arcor nitride finish supplemented with either a black or urban gray polycoat;
  • thin, checkered aluminum grips (either blue or black) that match the pistol’s fine frontstrap and backstrap checkering (you can reportedly get fuller rubber grips, too);
  • a black HAJO notch rear sight that’s click-adjustable for elevation and drift-adjustable for windage; and
  • three magazines.

Standard/hold-over features include:

  • An ambidextrous, frame-mount thumb safety;
  • a firing pin block safety;
  • a safety stop on the hammer; and
  • a 1mm fiber optic front sight.

The Shadow 2 reportedly meets IPSC’s Production Division guidelines.
