Hey guys...I don't know much about CZ's I just know that I want one. I rented a dirty-ass, beat up, old Shadow2 and this thing was absolutely flat out, lights out amazing! I want one now...but I want the TSO with the orange mag release. I've been looking at cz's website for the past month and that is what I've been seeing. Well I almost get into an argument with my LGS clerk because NOW cz's website must have updated or something and the TSO has this God-awful extended mag release and it doesn't say "Orange" on the grip. I don't care about the writing on the grip but I want that mag release. Which one is the updated version and which is better? Can I get the adjustable mag release?

You might try looking on GUNSINTERNATIONAL under the search heading "CZ75" they seem to have a couple of FFL's that are offering the CZ TSO with the orange magazine release and ORANGE marked grips..

I know the Shadow2 has an adjustable mag release that you can change positions on and takes 75 series mags of 17 rounds or better. Not sure about the TSO but I’m pretty sure it only takes the 20 round specific TSO mags

Well like I said there’s a TSO 2 that’s SAO, and there’s also a Shadow2 SAO, and there’s a TSO orange none of them have a colored mag release but I’m sure you can get one. And if your buying it for competition the extended mag release will probably come in handy or just install a lower profile one

You're saying there's a 'Tactical Sport ORANGE 2'. There is not. I think the Tactical Sport 2 (with the blue grips) that you're referring to is a different gun altogether in that the frames are different. The ORANGE feels slimmer than the BLUE. The ORANGE is an upgraded model.. we're not talking just a color change here. I've seen two different versions of the ORANGE model with the magazine release being the obvious difference. I just want know if both ORANGE versions are different besides the mag release. Are the frames really the same? Are the slides 'fitted' to the frames in both versions? etc. etc.

No I’m not saying there is a TSO2 it’s a TS2 is the the tactical sport 2 with blue grips and is a new design with slide serrations like a Shandow2 There is only 1 TSO orange and there’s always been just 1 TSO orange. The only other one they’ve introduced is the Shadow2 orange. The TS2 has the angle cut slide like a Shadow2 and doesn’t have the gas pedal built into the frame like the TSO does. The TS2 is like a TSO(orange) and a Shadow2 had a baby together.

Well I would prefer the smaller grip. As well as that dirty, old S2 shot at the range..Im probably just splittin' hairs. Thanks for expanding on this. For a CZ forum there doesn't seem to be many TSO fans.

Other than a longer barrel and SAO I’m really not sure how much better a TSO is over a shadow 2. If I were buying a TSO I would buy the TSO 2 personally because of the updates and nicer shadow 2 style slide on the TSO2

I’m not sure exactly what your wanting or your skill level. I’m not an expert at all but I’m a decent shot and I can shoot a 66% steel target fairly easily @50yds and I’ve done it @75 yds also with my shadow 2 DA/SA pistol

I can hold my own. I wonder if the SAO trigger is better on a TSO than a DA/SA when shooting it in SA. The TSO also has a 'fitted' slide and frame. I just want something for fun that's accurate. I don't really compete that much officially but my buddy has a type of 'Hogan's Alley' thing going on on his property...make-shift buildings with bad guys. Big fun.

Yes the SAO trigger is gonna be better than a DA/SA gun in SA how much better I’m not sure, I just know for me personally I don’t really need something better than my shadow 2 I just feel it’s perfect right from the factory I know you can trick them out also but I’m not going to because it’s not necessary. But for that matter I haven’t touched the trigger on any of my CZ pistols so.
