The CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom is a large frame semi-automatic pistol chambered in 9mm Luger. The 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom is produced by CZ-USA, a Kansas City based subsidiary of the Czech arms manufacturer Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod. The 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom is a competition-grade variant of the CZ 75.
The CZ 75 is a pervasive handgun used by more governments, militaries, police, and security forces worldwide than any other pistol. Originally developed in 1975, the CZ 75 has given way to a number of variants. Because the manufacturer did not originally secure global patent protection for its CZ 75 design, a plethora of copies and variants have been offered by other global arms companies.
The CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom features all-steel construction and slim aluminum grips. The 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom includes a barrel length of 4.7″, and an overall length of 8.2″, and utilizes a cold hammer forged barrel. During hammer forging, a tool is carefully passed through the bore to carve the rifled grooves; this process increases durability and precision. The 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom also includes fixed competition sights with fiber optic front sight. The Shadow Custom also utilizes an ambidextrous thumb safety and a 18-round magazine. It also features a custom trigger and sights fitted at world champion marksman Angus Hobdell’s CZ Custom Shop.
The 75 SP-01 Shadow Custom is recommended by CZ for competitive shooting.
