  1. Same thing happened to me. Twice. Weak or too short firing pin spring. I put a dab of Loctite on the retaining plate now.
  2. Happy with my Shadow 2 OR, happy with the vortex venom, the mounting plate not so much. It fits well and is solid but i wish they had built out the sides a bit and milled in some cocking serrations on the plate. Does anyone know of any aftermarket plates that might have cocking serrations ?
  3. My out of the box Shadow 2 groups one inch at 20m. How much better could I do with an Accu shadow ?

    Spare Parts Kit

    Slide stop and extractor. Maybe a bit of fiber optic rod for the front sight and a trigger return spring.
  5. I use a 15# Wolff hammer spring in my Shadow2. I remove coils until the d/a is 5.5# for ipsc purposes. This results in 2.25 -2.5# s/a . There is a definite wall there and I like to prep the trigger. I bend the trigger return spring for reduced power and I bend it back if I need to. Never broke one. I clipped the firirng pin spring to reduce power. Extended firing pin not necessary as this set up ignites CCI primers 100%. I used this same set up in my Shadow 1’s since they were released about 12 or 15 years ago. We had no reduced power springs or extended fp springs back in the day so we had to be inventive. Short reset disconnectors make me laugh.

    CZ Shadow 2 OEM Setup

    My new S2 came with 13# hammer spring and 14# recoil spring. Reduced power trigger return spring and firing pin spring are available from CZ or aftermarket like CGW.Or you can just tweak them yourself for reduced power.
  7. I thought you might like to know, with the right bullet/load/optic the guns can be very accurate. Not every gun likes every load.Bushing might not make a difference.
  8. My S2 with factory bushing does 1 inch groups at 20m with147’s and optiic.
  9. I tried the 8-10-12-14-16. I like the 14#.
  10. Awesome. I hope u post the results and the 158 load recipe.
  11. Has anyone tried Campro 158 grain plated .355 bullets in the Shadow2 ? Any thoughts or recipes to share ? I currently have V V 320 and titegroup on hand.

    Which Shadow 2

    Got my new Shadow2 optic ready two days ago. Of course I had to take it apart right away before I shot it. D/A trigger pull was about 12 pounds, S/A was about 4.5 pounds on my scale. The internals looked great so I decided to do nothing to it. I did my bend tweak to the factory trigger return spring, rummaged thru a box of springs left over from the thrilling days of yesteryear and found one hammer spring labelled 15# minus 5 coils and installed that. Also found a recoil spring labelled 10#, probably a Wolff. I oiled all the parts as I put it together. Got a 5.5# da pull and 2.5# sa pull. Nice and crisp, i can make the trigger creep a wee bit if I try real hard but at match or practice speed no noticeable creep at all. Reset is quite nice. Installed the Vortex Venom and went to the range today. Only brought 50 rounds. They all went bang, no misfires, primer hits look fine with Federal primers. Sighted in the Venom at 10 yards, then moved to 15 yards Did a three shot one hole group at 15. Supported of course. No, I didnt miss. Got a one inch group at 20 yds. Shadow2 is a helluva gun. Who the hell needs a Shadow Target or a Bull Shadow? My load was 3.4 grains of V V320, Federal primers, 147 grain Campro plated bullet @1.110. Empties landed about 6 feet away. The gun flips up, dips down, then resettles at about the starting point. Just loaded another 300 rounds and will be off to the range tomorrow. I will try and tune the recoil spring.Cheers.

    what makes a cz75 or 75 clone stack (tighten up) towards the end of the d/a trigger pull ?
  14. What is the point of this gun ? What can it do that other guns can not do ?
  15. Your elevation screw probably sheared off....I had the same problem, luckily i found all the parts.I put a dab of silicone under the sight to prevent bouncing when the slide recoils back and forth. It acts as a shock absorber and the screw will not shear off. I also put a dab of silicone in the windage screw hole to prevent movement.
