Hello All,

So over on Enos' forum, I was made aware that CZ now makes an extended manual safety tab that has the same profile as the one on the Shadow 2...which many know can install on a Tac Sport because of the wider frame dimension but not on a CZ 75 or SP01.  Well, they recently started coming out with one that fits on their SP01 Shadow Orange.....




...and I was kindly guided as to where to purchase in Europe....

http://www.luckydelta.com/shop/CZ-Teile-Tuning/Sicherungen-Safety/CZ75-SP-01-SHADOW-ORANGE-WIDE-SAFETY-SET-RECHTSHAND.html


Like many I can't deal with the 'regular' CZ extended safeties with that low tab, so I installed a CZ Custom Extended safety on a few guns and dremeled them down so they don't stick out so far......

Accu Shadow....


'Long Slide' Shadow SAO (fitted TS Slide)



Ordered two of the new S2-styled safeties....





Installed in my Accu Shadow, went right in and fit the adjustable sear fine....




Works great!


Pros: fits the sear cage nice and snug and actually has less play than the previous CZC extended unit.  A more positive click when disengaging.  Clears the support hand a little better than the previous one (which has a downward tilt to the tab).  Places the thumb up a little higher still.

Cons: Probably because I've gotten so used to the ground-down CZC units that were there before, but there is a more gentle 'sweep' on the rear of the tab on the older one which is a little more comfortable of a rest for the strong-hand thumb (no doubt part of the 'rocking' on/off feature).  So when drawing and sweeping off, it's a slightly different feel on the SP01 frames (I've had both a Shadow 2 and Tac Sport Blue with this safety), but again it's probably just getting used to them again.  I'm going to try it first on my Accu Shadow through a few matches.  Then if I really like I will put the other one my long-slide, on which I need to file down the lug where it engaged the sear since the long-slide doesn't have the CJW adjustable sear and needed the safety fit to it.

But anyway, for those who pined for a Shadow 2 safety that would fit the SP01...myself included......they're here!

I couldn't find it form US sellers and had to order from overseas.  But it delivered pretty quickly.

Thanks for posting about this. How much did the safeties end up costing after shipping and wondering if you used a credit card or PayPal for the transaction? I checked out the website but I don?t speak German and for some reason when I added the safety to my cart and tried to check out with PayPal it wouldn?t allow me.  I didn?t register on the site so maybe that was the problem.  Thanks

I used PayPal, and with shipping two sets came out to 124,15 ?, so like $143 or so.  Yeah, it took me a few tries to checkout, and I used an online translator.  ;D

But they're on the up-and-up, they emailed me in English after the purchase and got me tracking.

Just wanted to update that I put one on my 'long-slide' too.  I like it better on this gun, and it also rides my strong thumb a little higher so that my support thumb more comfortably rests on the gas pedal.

I love mine.

I noticed that the website has changed since I got mine and they have went up to just under $100.00 US plus shipping.
if you only order one expect to pay aprox $125.00 shipped.
