Our Assessment: This is a very clean CZ Custom CZ75 SP01 Shadow Target manufactured in 2013. What separates the Shadow Custom from the stock Shadow is a reliability tune and a trigger job, carrying the good work the Czechs started to the next level. The SP-01 sports a full-length steel dust cover. Unlike a standard 75B, the trigger guard is relieved and the rear grip tang/beaver tail is upswept, allowing a higher, more comfortable grip. This pistol is simply gorgeous. It has very obviously been extremely well maintained by its previous owner. The trigger is smooth as butter and breaks crisply like grandma’s saltine crackers.
