Our Assessment:   The introduction of the CZ Shadow 2 Compact brings the celebrated precision and ergonomics of the CZ Shadow 2 into a more versatile and carry-friendly package. This model maintains the core attributes that have made the Shadow 2 a standout in IPSC Production and Production Optics divisions, including its renowned accuracy, shooting comfort, and reliability, but in a format that’s significantly more conducive to everyday carry.

By reducing both the size and weight of the original Shadow 2, CZ has addressed the needs of users looking for a firearm that’s easier to carry throughout the day while still offering the competitive edge of its full-sized counterpart. The CZ Shadow 2 Compact promises to deliver the same level of shooting experience with its retained key features, which likely include the superbly designed grip and balance, crisp and customizable trigger, and high-quality manufacturing standards that shooters have come to expect from CZ.

This compact variant is tailored for those who appreciate the performance and design of the CZ Shadow 2 but require a firearm that fits more seamlessly into a concealed carry role. Its lighter and more compact form factor does not compromise on the functionality and performance that are hallmarks of the Shadow series, making it an exceptional choice for both competitive shooters seeking a more versatile option and for individuals desiring a high-performance carry pistol that benefits from CZ’s extensive experience in competition-grade firearms.  Please see our photos and best of luck with your bidding! – L.S.
