The CZ Shadow 2 enters the market with the slogan ‘Competition Ready’. This slogan conveys the fact that due to the factory settings, you can take your brand new pistol out of the box, enter a competition and win. It is also a play on words, in the sense that with this pistol, Česká zbrojovka is ready to take a stand and deal with its rivals. Those have so far focused on the CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow and I have got a funny feeling that the new CZ Shadow 2 will turn out to be a very unpleasant surprise for them.
The Uherský Brod factory have not just improved the crucial details but significantly redesigned the main parts too, taking full advantage of the possibilities opened up by the recent modernization of technology. The way I see it is that the mission was accomplished and the phenomenal CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow has been outdone. And I mean, quite dramatically. You see, the CZ Shadow 2 has already been through extensive testing by top IPSC shooters. They discovered that with the new pistol their time was better by three seconds in the same situation compared to the original Shadow!
Now, I do not want to force you to believe anything. Try it for yourself and you will see, but I am willing to bet that you will agree with me. And if you still find something you do not like, let Česká zbrojovka know. They evidently listen to their customers very carefully and the new CZ models are the proof.
