Competitive shooters are no stranger to the CZ competition pistol family. It is a lineage that dominates the practical shooting disciplines like IPSC, USPSA, 3-gun, and Steel Challenge. For this reason, the company is always looking to bolster its competitive edge. Originally chambered in 9mm, the CZ TS 2 now comes in .40 S&W. As a result, competitors now have a scoring advantage, with the higher power factor offering more points over the 9mm.
The CZ TS 2 .40 S&W Competition Pistol
Designed to handle the snappy .40 S&W for competitive shooting, the steel frame soaks up heavy recoil. Similarly, the design offers excellent balance and handling. Featuring CZ’s distinctive blue aluminum grips, the TS 2 has aggressive texturing on the grips and frame. For this reason, the TS 2 ensures a secure grip in all conditions.
Utilizing a similar low-profile slide, coupled with a redesigned frame provides improved ergonomics, smoother operation, less muzzle flip, and faster follow-up shots. This is essential when shooting the .40 S&W over the 9mm. An ambidextrous safety provides competitive level quality for both right- and left-hand shooters.
The low-profile slide features forward and rear cocking serrations for improved manipulation while competing. Atop the slide is a fiber-optic front sight working in tandem with the serrated fixed rear sight for low-light competition.
Nestled within the slide is the cold hammer-forged 5.28-inch barrel, providing top velocities from the .40 S&W cartridge. .40 S&W is the choice of elite competitors due to its 170 power factor, which scores it as a Major. Rounds are sent downrange via a crisp, single-action trigger. Shipping with one 17-round magazine, the flared magwell also aids in smooth, rapid reloads during a competitive shoot.
Don’t worry if you own the first generation and purchased parts and accessories for it, they also fit this model. So, you can upgrade and keep the same accessories you are used to.
The CZ TS 2 .40 S&W competition Pistol is available now, with an MSRP of $1,695.00. For more info, please visit CZ-USA.com.
