CZ uses few profiles for all its rear sights. In this article we discuss the rear sight profile standard for CZ Shadow 2. Also we show which models use the same rear sight profile and thus use compatible sights.
Rear sight profile explained
What does rear sight profile mean? It is a cut in the slide allowing installation of rear sight to the gun.
Based on the used rear sight profile you will be able to determine whether or not the sights you are looking for will be also compatible with your CZ.
How so? Because these rear sight profiles are shared among many CZ pistols – you just need to know which pistols use which rear sight profile.
CZs compatible with CZ Shadow 2 rear sight profile
CZ uses the same profile for models for various other pistols too.
The fact that rear sight profile is the same does not necessarily mean that the front sight is also the same – for example CZ Shadow 2 and CZ Shadow 2 Orange use different method of mounting of the front sight.
Below you can find complete list of pistols using the same rear sight profile.
If the pistol is listed below, you can use CZ Shadow 2 rear sight for that model without need of any modification.
