Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I’ll give that a try as well with my prior favorite match ammo ( Vihtavuori N320 3.5gn with Campro 147gn) I did use a bench rest when sighting in the gun, but I was using 147gn 231’s. I repeated the shooting several times between the 147gn and the 124gn and the 124gn was consistent groupings, whereas the 147s were a bit more diffuse. Because I’m shooting the gun standing up and not sitting, I’m pretty confident with the recipe I have for the optic ready Shadow 2 and will probably switch to that for the non-optic Shadow 2 if I ever shoot iron sights again
  2. Lightening cuts have not been made in the slide, no different really than the Shadow 2, BUT, the slide is bulkier, it’s a lot easier to rack than the non-optic, I find anyways. I just can’t see myself shooting the non-optic anymore, it’s crazy how good that gun is.
  3. Up until today I’d been running Campro 147’s with Vihtavuori N320 through my non-optic ready Shadow 2. I discovered that the Optic Ready isn’t loving that combination quite as much, but it sure does love the 124’s. Making a switch in my reloading as soon as I’ve shot through the 147’s reloads.
  4. That’s a super soft shooting load in my Shadow 2, casing barely clears the ejection port, usually rolls off the back of my hand and lands at my feet.
  5. The Optics ready comes with stock iron sights. Unless you’re looking for both windage and elevation?
  6. More bags of chips. Seriously this optics ready Shadow 2 is unbelievably good, because I sure as heck am not.
  7. Or Blue Glue (Loc-Tite). After pricing out the cost of a cheapo throw away sight, I opted for just keeping the roll pin in place and glued in. It’s holding up well.
  8. Looks good, I think I’m going to do the same with mine. Any recommendations on the throw away sight?
  9. Optics takes some practice for sure, I think especially if you’ve been shooting iron sights a long time. It slowed down someone I know who’s been shooting iron sights for decades and one of our clubs top ranked shooters.. Thought it might give me a fighting chance against him for at least a round or two, (what a laugh) but not a chance. As soon as he practiced a bit more with the optics he’s right on top of his game again, the b******, . I’ve seen adapter plates available for the Delta Point. Are there mounting options available already for the other optics you mention? Supply seems to be very limited at the moment.
  10. Thank you for posting this! Super helpful for other shooters running into same issue. One would think that the CZ adapter plate would be milled to fit the standard bolts included for the Vortex, not everyone is getting the Glock MOS bolts and are having trouble sourcing. Good to know Home Depot carries them. Home Depot in Canada can be slightly more anemic than the American Home Depot Thanks again for posting @MoRivera
  11. Not everyone has those different screws and are asking me for information. Sharing what I can to assist. If you find it so tiresome and doesn’t impact you, SYFUGDNWTSDSAH. Thanks.
  12. For Canadian shooters, Vortex replied to my email in regards to this and if any hardware is required not included in your kit for mounting the Venom, ie. GLOCK MOS sized bolts, I refer you to:
  13. I recently obtained my Shadow 2 Optic Ready. I had already purchased 2 Vortex Venom RDS months ago in anticipation for taking possession of the Shadow 2 OR as well as the P10F OR when it’s available in Canada. When I received the Shadow, I went about removing the rear sight plate, not a problem; installing the CZ Vortex Venom adapter plate to the Shadow, not a problem; installing the Vortex Venom to the adapter plate; big problem. The included hardware sunk into the foam, meant to secure the red dot to the adapter plate, did not fit the adapter plate. Try as I might, the bolts would not grab hold. Eventually I pulled out the calipers and started measuring and discovered that the bolts were about 1mm larger than the contact points of the adapter plate and in the right light, I noticed the wear on the ends of the bolts where they were wearing themselves on the surface of the adapter plate. As I had already been playing with the RDS, the box and contents it had contained were thoroughly rummaged in. I decided to open the brand new Venom box to see if the bolts included in there were a different size and that’s when I noticed the baggie labeled GLOCK MOS containing two additional bolts. These fit. So what I had done was stash that baggie under the foam in the original box because I don’t own Glock products (never will) so I figured the baggie with the bolts was of no use, glad I didn’t toss it though. Anyways, I’ve gotten a number of people watching my video on the Shadow 2 optic ready on Youtube, asking me about mounting the Vortex Venom as they are running into the same problem. Not all Vortex Venoms, be it 6MOA or 3MOA are shipping with that GLOCK MOS package of bolts, and you NEED those. I had contacted my retailer of the optic plate and they suggested the problem is with the Venom. The problem is not with the Venom. I think CZ didn’t tap the holes big enough to use the mounting hardware that Vortex provides with all their Vortex Venoms, that being the larger bolts stuck in the foam. If you’re running into problems, you may need to contact Vortex for the smaller bolts. I was at the point where I was going to either tap a larger opening into the adapter plate or reduce the size of the bolts in the foam, fortunately I didn’t have a tap/die set that would work for this and spent the time hunting for what was missing in the install. Good luck and hope this helps!
  14. It’s like a big red sore thumb. When is yours arriving and may I ask which RDS you’ll be running?
  15. Sorry to hear that KyleJ. I know how it feels, I wanted the optic ready version since April 2018 when I was shooting my first Qualifier and someone had the bright idea to tell me that CZ was releasing an optic version later that year. I’m probably going to put the Kadet .22 adapter for S2 on the lower of the original non-optic and I kind of question whether I’m going to be shooting iron sights anymore, for me, it’s just that good. Do you need it right away, like do you have other firearms to shoot in the interim? If you can wait, it is so worth the wait.
