CZ Shadow 2 Orange VS Tactical Sport Orange? Login/Join

This will pretty much be a range toy. Just to enjoy banging at some steel.

Is the main difference the DA/SA vs SA trigger? Any other big differences to consider?

Any one have experience with both that can comment?

Yes, action types are the major difference. Another important thing to know is that the mags are different and not interchangeable. The TS, TSO, TS2 and Czechmate use their own mag which will not fit into the other full size CZ pistols.

The mags are expensive. When Greg Cote is selling TSO mags for $76, then you know they're expensive.

The TSO feels better in my hand. Plus has a nice trigger. It is Absolutely amazing to shoot. Not that anything is wrong with the Shadow 2. I think you will be pleased with either one. Good Luck !

Standard 20rd 9mm TSO mags are $48, the ones with an orange base pad are $75. No MecGar aftermarket’s are available.

Shadow 2 19rd MecGar mags are $30, 17rds are $25. These work 100% and fit all 75B series guns. SP-01, Shadow, Shadow 2, standard 75 etc. ACT 17rds mags are $19, but I’ve not used those yet.

It’s simple to make the Shadow 2 into single action only like the TSO. Or leave it DA/SA and don’t lower the hammer, which you have to do manually on the Shadow 2.

The TSO is less common and has a factory magwell but most of the action parts interchange. Hammer, sear, sear cage, safety levers, certain flat faced triggers for SAO, recoil and main springs. The Shadow 2 orange uses a different front sight than the others, even the non Orange Shadow 2.

Personal preference, I’d get the one that fits your hand best. If I didn’t want the TSO in .40 for USPSA, I’d have stayed with the Shadow 2 series.

I've got both and, yes, the action is the biggest difference.

One thing I'll add that hasn't been said is that they use different frames. The Shadow 2 uses the new frame, just like the TS2 does. The TSO uses the older frame.

The gun on the left is the SP-01 Orange from CZ Custom. They started the “Orange” trend and CZ followed.

I'd also recommend the TS2 Racing Green

The Czechmate is similar, but uses a sight block and can be converted to Open spec.

Thanks

They are similar from a perforamnce standpoint. I prefer the TSO over the standard TS2, as it has better sights and a metal trigger. The TS2 Green has the same enhancements that the TSO has, but it uses the new frame. I do prefer the new frame.

The TSO is a little longer and seems to gave less muzzle flip. I shoot it better than the new Shadow 2 Orange.

I also have both. If I had to pick one, it’d probably the Shadow 2 for the magazine compatibility. But the price on the TSO right now is very attractive. If you have any thoughts of using this as a nightstand gun, get the DA/SA

Yup, I wouldn't want to use the gun with the trigger pull of less than 2 lbs as my HD gun.

I wouldn’t recommend it for a HD gun still, but I put an Apex Tactical Kit in my TSO and got up close to 4 lbs of trigger pull.

As impressive as these guns are, trying to keep track of all of the upmarket CZ versions and variants between CZ proper and the Custom Shop can drive one nuts. Well, at least this particular 'one' (me)...

Future congrats on whichever one (or two, or three) you choose.

CZ doesn’t have a “custom shop”

If you’re referring to CZ Custom, they are their own company. They both customize CZ pistols as well as build some of their own.

If it is just a range toy, TSO. It is fun to shoot, and very accurate. Since it is so light, you do need to get used to the trigger pull on the TSO. Also own a Shadow 2 Black/Blue. That one is a heck of a gun too! These are 2 that I will never part with.
