CZ-USA last week announced they now have an optics-ready model of their Shadow 2 series of competition pistols.
The new Shadow 2 OR comes standard with a fiber optic front sight and a HAJO rear that is click-adjustable for elevation, drift adjustable for windage but the groovy part of the new model is that it has a slightly different slide profile to allow for its red dot optic plate system. The file image released by CZ shows the pistol with a Trijicon RMR but the company says they have a variety of plates available.
“With the Shadow 2 reigning as the gun of choice for most competitors in Production Division, the Shadow 2 Optics-Ready is poised to do the same in USPSA’s Carry Optics division,” said CZ in a statement.
Like the rest of the Shadow 2 line, the OR model is an all-steel pistol with a nitride finish and aluminum grips. The 19+1 capacity 9mm has a 4.89-inch cold hammer-forged barrel and an overall length of 8.53-inches. Weight, unloaded, is 46.5-ounces.
Other features include a swappable mag release with an adjustable, extended button that has three settings to allow shooters to figure out their sweet spot on the control. Using what CZ bills as new trigger components, the Shadow 2 line “give smooth DA and crisp, clean SA while drastically reducing trigger reset.”
MSRP on the CZ Shadow 2 OR is $1,549.
