TheChef1 Posted August 10, 2022 Share Posted August 10, 2022 So I got my first shadow 2 right when they first came out (2016? 17?) I've loved it ever since lots of cajun parts and modified lok grips and I felt for years like it was the best production pistol available. Fast forward to about 6 months ago I wanted to dabble in CO as no one seems to shoot production anymore. I was going to get another slide milled but found a ridiculous deal on an S2 OR with an SRO so I just bought that. Spent a bunch of money on getting mags setup more cajun parts lok brass grips and I thought I had the ultimate CO gun. Work has been busy so ive only shot 2 match with it and as expected I did see a boost in scores and overall rankings which is not surprising im sure that will just improve as I get more used to shooting the dot vs irons. A couple weeks ago I saw a good deal on a p10F comp which I was eyeing for awhile as a HD gun. Got it liked it found a good deal on a second one (thanks Jeff O) and picked that up as well. decided to set up 1 for HD as planned and one as a CO. The CO one has a SRO, tungsten guide rod, Apex Trigger, overwatch striker and I packed the backstrap with tungsten shot and putty which really helped balance the gun and overall I added about 5 oz to the gun and it feels great. So I took the 3 of them out to a local indoor range to zero the dots and run some drills. What I found I found is that the p10 thats setup as a game gun seemed to be as fast maybe faster than the shadow 2. the battery was dead in my timer so unfortunately dont have data to back it right now. I dont have a holster for the p10s yet so couldn't run anything from the draw but I feel like the lighter gun will be quicker to draw and get on target maybe even more so late in the match due to fatigue. I ran a lot of table start drills both loaded and unloaded and it felt like I was getting the p10 up and on target faster than the S2. Unloaded start the p10 was definitely faster the slide size and slide cuts definitely helped and the mags seem to go in more smoothly. The trigger on the S2 is better but didn't seem to make much of a difference I ran both pretty quick. Transitions seemed faster and easier with the P10. The S2 may soak up the recoil better but not by much honestly I didn't feel the dot settling on target faster on either. both ran reliable with s#!t ammo as far as I remember. Overall the p10 manipulates really well, working the slide is effortless, mag release is in a great spot all things I love about the S2 also but I think the P10 edges it out. I'm going to have to run more drills with the timer when I get back from this work trip and see if the timer confirms. Anyone else have anything similar happen where a "downgrade" of a pistol runs better for them? would I be crazy to can the S2 and run the P10?
