For the first time in a long time, I'll be doing shooting indoor leagues this coming winter, figured I'd better find the right tool for the job.

I did some trading and got myself a Shadow 2.

Mainly wanted something that I could eventually use a .22LR upper on for practice and whatnot, and supposedly CZ has a seperate Kadet upper for the Shadow 2 on the way so that and the fact it has the nicest non custom/cajun CZ trigger I've ever had.

Here it is, only has 100 through it so far...but wow. It shoots great, virtually no felt recoil and it's accuracy is spot on after getting the rear sight adjusted to where I like it.

It's pricey, but a big improvement over the two plastic guns I traded towards it.

I just need to swap the safety to the extended one (which is included) and I should be set.

I was just this week chatting on the phone with a long-time friend and fellow gun collector. He's raving about the similar CZ Tactical Sport Orange. Says it's the best weapon he's fired.


Good review. Thanks for sharing your insights.

I can't say I've ever seen a Tactical Sport or Czechmate in the flesh, but I bet they're awesome.

I'm happy with the Shadow, I tried a few DA mode shots and could not believe how smooth the trigger is and how accurate I was with it.

.22 LR upper is on the way!

You got yourself a very nice big boys toy.
Wish I would be leaving in a more gun friendly city so I would have this exact model and color long ago in my hands.
Enjoy in good health.

As noted in our earlier conversation, really like how those feel in the hand, and they are a handsome pistol.
Has anyone ever offered a suggestion of why CZ likes the slide inside the frame?
Enjoy,

Well, the Czechs weren't crazy about the Soviet offerings for firearms at the time, so they made their own.

The CZ 75 borrows the internal slide rails from the P210, which they felt increased accuracy and lowered recoil as well as the bore axis - so that's what they did.
