First Look: CZ Tactical Sport 2 Pistol
CZ-USA’s handguns are known in the practical shooting disciplines for their speed, precision and dynamic performance. They are a popular choice for sports such as IPSC, USPSA, 3-Gun and Steel Challenge, with the CZ Tactical Sport leading the way.
The crisp single-action trigger, outstanding ergonomics and long sight radius of the CZ Tactical Sport have evolved into the new Tactical Sport 2 (TS2) pistol from CZ USA. This all new re-imagined firearm represents the next generation in tactical sport pistols from CZ.
The TS2 was designed and built for competition shooters using the company’s highly successful Shadow 2 as a design template. The slide profile is built so that the reciprocating weight is positioned as low as possible, allowing for smoother operation, less muzzle flip and faster follow-up shots. The TS2’s redesigned frame and improved ergonomics also reduce muzzle flip, making this new pistol even easier to control than its predecessor.
The new pistol comes with 20-round standard magazines and distinctive blue aluminum grips that have aggressive checkering and a flared mag well. In addition to this, because the steel-framed, 9 mm TS2 is compatible with a wide variety of existing accessories for the original Tactical Sport pistol, competitors can have an entry-level competition handgun that already has a good selection of accessories and aftermarket of custom parts, right out of the box.
Front and rear cocking serrations on the slide make racking this pistol easy for practically anyone, with or without gloves. With a fiber-optic front sight, the included set of fixed target sights are rugged enough to withstand rough competition use.
