The Shadow series of handguns are designed specifically for target and competition work. When building the Single Action Only 75 Shadow, CZ turned their focus to creating the best trigger pull possible. Fitted with a redesigned unit originally used in the CZ 75 Champion, the hammer of the SAO is slightly wider with modified sear engagement, resulting in smoother release and more positive ignition. The CZ single action aluminum trigger has an overtravel adjustment screw and pulls at 3.5-3.8 lbs. To further smooth the trigger pull and improve trigger reset distance, the CZ 85 Combat-style slide without a firing pin block is used. Lighter springs (15 lb. recoil, 16 lb. main) create a smoother, more consistent action and the CZ 75 SA wide ambidextrous safeties give more purchase and better positioning of the thumb. The SAO ships with three 16-round magazines and plastic grips.
