    New Shadow 2 stoppages

    A few shooters at are club have had some similar issues, however both of them were running the extended safety. After putting the gun through the paces they realized there support hand thumb was touching the slide and inducing the malfunctions. They both switched to the flush safeties and the problems went away.

    QUESTIONS:

    Does CZ Custom plan on producing enough Bull Shadows to get them added to the approved USPSA production gun list? Had not see that posted anywhere so thought I would ask.
  3. Ryan and Kyle hit a home run on this match. Hope to see these guys put together another good match for 2018.

    Accu Shadow 2

    With your experience on CZs I am sure the question was great. Keep us posted when you get something back. Thanks for doing it.

    Accu Shadow 2

    It sounds like based on Stuart's comment and the recent ruling on hammers, someone could send the official question to DNROI to get an official ruling if adding the accu-bushing to it would be an allowable modification. In all honesty removing the factory bushing and tapping the slide is all internal modification and the external part is on a production approved gun, so it actually makes more sense than the hammer.

    Shadow 2 safety on Tactical Sport

    I 2nd this. I did this on mine. It is the same safety system and no fitting required. It makes actuating the safety a more natural feel to me than the improved CZ Custom model or the one that comes standard on it.

    printers

    I have ran one of the thermal printers for about a year now. Saw one of Eugene's youtube videos and did the same. Haven't really had an issue with the thermal printers. Sat it in the sun all day multiple times and still working. The issue I have running at club matches is the inexperience on the scoring devices and most of our stage devices are the legacy non-bluetooth versions. On the android I used the POS Printer Driver app as the interface for the bluetooth thermal printer. From the approve scoring screen tap the top corner that says share and it will print. I personally would rather see more of these at Level 2 matches than seeing ROs copy on to sheets. Just more of a chance of human error while copying, which I have seen quite a bit over L2 matches.

    Who makes the best grips for the TSO?

    If you like the aggressiveness of VZ it might be worth the call to them and see if they would cut them for you. Not a lot of options out there that I have seen. Good luck.

    Who makes the best grips for the TSO?

    Check out LOK grips. I got a set of Bogies for mine. Just send him an email letting him know you have a TSO and he will cut them for the magwell. I also had him make them a bit thicker than the standard set on the website. I am more than pleased with the aggressiveness and bite of them. Jeff

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    The ones I had a part appeared to have a 15lbs main and 13lbs recoil spring. I went with the 13# main and an 11# recoil.

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    I ran the 10# offered here in the US and really liked it on my other Shadows. How does the 8# spring differ in feel compared to the 10# or 11#? How many rds are you typically running on the 8# spring?

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    I find these hit or miss over the years. I had 2 accu-shadows set up the same way and noticeable differences between the 2. Same with 2 of my prior Shadow Targets. I guess it comes down to enough variations between what parts they use and how they pair them all together. If I see you at a match sometime I would like to check yours out once you put that CGW trigger in.

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    I am running an 11# spring. I have not tried the 10# yet, but really digging the feel of the 11#. I have not had any feeding issues with my S2. Front sight I swapped out for the Dawson Front sight in.240 tall and .100 wide. I have not had to adjust might rear sight at all and had no issues with groupings at 50yds, but POI is fine 20yds and in. Granted I am not running the BBI 135 I am running the SNS Coated 135gr loaded to 1.130. I have done similar mods. I fitted a disco added the LOK Palm Swell Grips, 11# recoil. I left the shockbuff in it. My trigger is excellent in SA but about 1# heavier in DA, but as smooth as my best accushadow. I noticed the improved TRS on the S2 seems like it is a lot stiffer, so that could attribute to the heavier pull over my accushadow, but have not tried the cz custom TRS I used in my accushadow. The DA weight does not really concern me or affect my shooting, so to me reliability is more important. I also added a CZ custom hammer, but could not notice any big improvements, so just dropped the stock hammer back in the gun.

    CGW NP3 Coated Hammer Group Buy?

    I believe this is the ruling they are referring to. It goes into affect next week. Replacement Hammers, Production and Carry Optics Note that this ruling is not yet effective Created: 2/27/17 Updated: 4/05/17 Effective: 4/12/17 Rule Number: D4, 21.6 D7, 21 Applies to: Pistol Ruling Authority: DNROI Status: Released Question: I want to replace the hammer on my Production/Carry Optics gun with one from an aftermarket shop. Are aftermarket hammers legal replacements in Production and/or Carry Optics, even if the external shape of the hammer is different? Answer: As long as the internal parts of the hammer used as a replacement function identically to the internals on the OFM hammer, replacing the hammer is allowed, despite the outward appearance. For example, an OFM hammer that functions as part of a decocking system can be replaced with an aftermarket hammer that looks externally different as long as it continues to function as a decocker hammer. Changing the function to a manually decocked hammer is not allowed, as this essentially changes the model of firearm.

    If you are using the Dawson Front sight the .240 is the correct height to get.
