    Shell out a few extra bucks and get the Shadow 2.

    Both of them are great pistol. After awhile, you'll regret not getting the Shadow 2. So just buck up, bite the bullet, and get the Shadow 2.

    It's inevitable.

    Good deal I just decided to pay 879$ at a local store where i could try the gun out and whatever, lowest price i could find was Doctor Deals for 800$ but I didn't trust them had to pay an E-transfer before they ship it out to me.

    I’d like to try a Grand Power, but I’d want the fancy one too, being of the buy once cry once mentality now.

    I’ve been putting it off for years. I do enjoy the CZ. To me it’s the European 1911 - it’s everywhere and everyone seems to clone it.

    And it’s steel.

    The CZ 85 Combat is a bit of a sleeper, but also worth looking at. They used to be a good savings over the Shadow, but that was some years back.

    I’m sure if the CZ ate trigger springs, someone like Wolfe would have a better spring. I’ve heard of the slide stops going after several thousands of rounds. By design it’s a consumable part, as I understand it. I’ve never broken one, so I must not have that many thousands of rounds through mine,


    If you tried it out and liked it, CZ 75 is never the wrong choice.

    I bought an X-Calibur in 2018 and shot IPSC with it all year (just over 5000 rounds). I liked the trigger and I could shoot it fast an accurately but it was just not reliable. The entire slide would lock up when it got a little bit dirty. You’d have to push it against a table or a block of wood to get the action open. It sh!t the bed hard at a major USPSA match and I was having to field strip it after every stage and run it with no lube just to finish the match. It also would not run several types of 147 Grain bullets. I contacted Grand Power Canada and Dave Copping basically blamed me for not not cleaning it well enough and didn’t even read my email explaining what I do to clean it, what lube I use, etc. As far as I’m concerned if a gun can’t run 50 rounds without the entire slide locking itself closed, either it’s a design flaw or defective. But GPC’s solution was to blame the customer.

    I switched back to CZ (had previously shot a 75B) and got 3 different variants of the SP-01 Shadow (one was a good deal, the other two were discontinued/limited edition) and I haven’t looked back. Zero failures of any kind in all of 2019, and I can shoot them just as fast and as accurately.

    In a way I’m glad I got the X Cal. If I didn’t I’d always wonder what it was like. But now it’s nothing but a fancy range toy, probably destined to see as many rounds in the rest of its life as were put through it in a year.
