- Review: KJW CZ75 SP-01 SHADOW 2

Ceska Zbrojovka is not that easy to pronounce, maybe that's why everyone calls it just CZ. It was in this Czech factory where this gun manufactured for special units was born. Thanks to its extraordinary precision and high stability during quick firing, it gained popularity among IPSC shooters and from there stepped into the limelight of airsoft in the hands of KJW (manufacturer) and ASG (holder of the licenses of the model) to present its replica. This Shadow 2 is the evolution of a model that has been nourished by the feedback and experience of many players and two major brands in our market. Do you want to see the results? Here we go.

Design in constant evolution

The design of this model comes from the CZ 75, a model that has been evolving in the hands of KJ Works with a few improvements. It may seem the opposite at first glance, it also deceived us. But there are some changes, for example, the width of the body increases, also increasing its weight, to make it resemble the real model. Something that does not stand out unless you have the previous Shadow in your hands. 

Tactical features

Its front sight has a red optical fibre sight and a tactical rear sight to aim more intuitively, even with dimmed light. Furthermore, it has a rail at the bottom to be able to attach a flashlight or other accessories, much needed in CQB games.

Improved grip

To ensure the grip it offers a non-slip texture on the front of the trigger guard and on the front and rear part of the handle. In addition, the grips have strips that besides generating an attractive drawing, help reinforce the grip. Be it sweat from our hand or because we are wearing gloves, the gun will not slip.

Alternative grip PAD

The original grip pads are made of rubber and have the CZ logo. However, KJW has suggested steel grip pads in the future: in metallic colour, in a striking orange colour, and now in an attractive "Blue Dragon" colour, focused on IPSC shooters and airsofters that do not want to go unnoticed.

Japanese compatibility

KJ Works tends to design products compatible with Tokyo Marui, in this model for example, the rubber of the hop-up is compatible with that of the HiCapa of TM. Although the design of the roulette chamber typical in this model varies and is activated by a flat screw. Although the performance is at the same level as the other KJ analysed.

Magazines

You can carry up to 26 BBs in the magazine that, with green gas, has given us 315 FPS, at 23ºC with 0.20 g BBs. Although the model is compatible with CO2 tanks (340 FPS). They come with an extended base that, along with the extended magazine release, helps in fast reloads, something much appreciated in IPSC tours.
