Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Offered for sale is a CZ 75 SP-01 SHADOW 2 with the rare BRONZE finish. It has been fired only a few times as a demo pistol. It comes with three (3) factory magazines, box and all paper work, mag loader and a Streamlight TLR-7 compact light. It is in new condition so you will not have to do any modifications to the Shadow 2 to have a competition ready pistol. The sights have been upgraded to TRUGLO TFX Tritium Fiber Optic Night Sights.

I have added some independent reviews of the Shadow 2.

The Shadow Returns
Like its predecessor, the original SP-01 Shadow, the Shadow 2 is built upon the CZ 75 platform with a pure focus on competition. The slide is actually contoured to focus the recoil impulse more closely to the center line of the bore, and the full-length dust cover adds weight up front to assist with recoil.
With this new iteration, the slide and barrel have been extended about half an inch for a longer sight radius and to add additional weight to assist with recoil mitigation. Also adding extra weight to the mix is a full-length steel guide rod that is incorporated rather than a plastic guide rod, as found in the original.
After going back to the drawing board with this model, CZ’s engineers designed the Shadow 2 with a higher beavertail along with checkered front- and back straps, and a relief cut under the trigger guard for a higher purchase on the firearm. While these modifications were intended to assist with the user’s purchase on the weapon, other steps were taken to improve a shooter’s handling as well.

The fusion of getting used to the new CZ Shadow 2 while also acclimating myself to competition shooting opened a new chapter up for me. There were several aspects of the Shadow 2 that made the experience very enjoyable and easier to transition to this new type of shooting, particularly where the combination of speed and accuracy merged.
First and foremost, the trigger pull on the Shadow 2 was nothing short of magnificent. This compliment is made with no exaggeration, as the trigger must be tried to be believed. The trigger on the sample I received broke at 8.46 pounds in DA mode and 2.71 pounds in SA mode. The SA pull may be a bit light for defensive work, but it certainly provides an edge for the serious competitor.
The superb texturing on the Shadow 2 ensured a locked-down grip on the pistol, and the forward-heavy weight of the full dust cover and stainless steel guide rod helped mitigate recoil to a significant degree. Even hotter ammunition did little to bring the gun’s muzzle up and off target. In addition, the felt recoil was nearly negligible, allowing for very fast follow-up shots—a key to winning.
