  1. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    I wont mention that I shot a friends Shadow 2 on Sunday. Actually, 3 people offered. (ducks and hides). I think the trigger on my Shadow Australia is a little better but the extra weight on the front did make the follow up shoots feel faster.
  2. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    I have heard numbers between 1500 and 3000 Shadow 2 per month coming off the new production line. The machining is noticeably sharper than the Shadows including the Oranges. 100 per month for the US does seem a little low.
  3. Shadow 2 msrp

    I have Shadow Australia which is similar to the Canadian Shadow Mate. It was AU$1650 (US$1265) with 4 x 10 round mags so thanks to the Canucks for paying for the development of my gun
  4. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    60 Urban Greys arrived in Australia in October and were all sold. 100 blacks (I think the factory calls them blues) are sitting in customs now, all sold. I believe another shipment of 100 blacks is due before Christmas, 60% sold. How long would 260 pistols last in the US ?
  5. Shadow 2 msrp

    Surely the comparison should be with the Stock III Xtreme. Is there really much difference ? Australian RRP; with 2 x 10 round mags AU$1549 (US$1190) with 4 x 10 round mags AU$1699 (US$1305)
  6. I bought a Shadow 2

    They are 10 round mags
  7. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    Mumble, mumble... Hows the 22/45 ? See you tomorrow ?
  8. Powder choice for 105-127 grain 9mm

    You could try HP38
  9. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    Why not use the new Race Master insert (http://www.doublealpha.biz/rm-holster-insert-block) for the Shadow 2 that DAA have already released. Ooh, new Alpha-X holster; http://www.doublealpha.biz/alpha-x-holster .
  10. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    Perhaps the urban greys use a coating from a different manufacturer ? Odd that they did not sort this out much earlier.
  11. CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    The first shipment of 60 production Shadow 2 have arrived in Australia. Only Urban Grey in this shipment. AU$1699 (US$1295) with 4 mags or AU$1549 (US$1180) with 2 mags. All 10 round mags here. .
  12. OEM Recoil springs

    18 lb recoil spring ? I believe 14 lb recoil and 18 lb hammer spring is standard on a SP-01 I am running 11 lb recoil and 13 lb hammer on my SP-01 Shadow (with standard firing pin).

    Maybe we should stick to the thread subject; you know the Shadow 2. Plenty of room for other posts in other threads.

    The CZ marketing approach has been a bit odd. At IWA they had numerous variations including a barrel bushing model, engraved, orange etc etc when they had no plans to produce these variations in the first year. Strange marketing. Normally you swamp the show with the model variations you will announce up front ie black with blue grips and urban. This gives you the opportunity to build up some more juice the second year with variation announcements. They also announced a factory custom build option. Very strange marketing. It also appears that the guns available to date (the final model?) were actually made in September 2015. Plenty of time to build up a warehouse full prior to your release date. We do have to remember CZs previous history with dealer shipments where multiple times they have re-shuffled commercial orders to fit in military orders with the various distributors only finding out weeks after the shipment was supposed to arrive. Looks like nothing has changed.
  15. I am very short sighted and normally wear multifocals. I use single vision lenses in both eyes for shooting. My non-dominant eye has my distance prescription and my dominant eye is setup for front sight focus. Normally your front sight focus will be +0.50 to 1.25 over your distance prescription. Get your optometrist to dummy some up in that frame they have and go outside and check out your vision. Some people cannot adjust to two different focal lengths. I am 50+ and have no problems adjusting when I put on my shooting glasses but sometimes take 5-10 minutes to adjust when I put my normal multifocals back on. I shoot a CZ Shadow in production.
