Hello all,

I just picked up my new CZ Kadet Conversion kit for my Shadow. After some minor filing and getting the upper to fit the frame I notice that my slide has stamped on it: CZ 75 Kadet 2

I've googled and search and everything comes up Kadet but nothing on the Kadet 2. I've checked the images and everything "looks" the same.

Not sure about the Kadet but mine has the Tritium/glow in the dark 3 dot, adjustable rear night sights.

Anybody have info on this?

Thanks.

Found one difference...

The height profile of the Kadet 2 kit is shorter than the Kadet kit.

With the Kadet fitted onto the Shadow frame, the pistol will not fit into the Shadow specific Bladetech holster, is the case with my buddy's Shadow/ Kadet kit.

My Shadow/ Kadet 2 combo fits perfectly into my Bladetech Shadow holster. NICE... but I'm now using a Ghost holster.

Cheers.

Do you have a picture of your Kadet 2 on the Shadow?
I wonder if this is the new version for the Shadow etc that is promised to be released "in the coming months" on www.czub.cz?

Please, post pix of Kadet 2 if possible.
I got Kadet (original) and while on 75SA frame, it fits BT holster for 75SA perfectly, no issues whatsoever.
My Shadow seems to have a little tighter frame and I don't want to fit Kadet to Shadow just to have it 'loose' on 75SA.

Well, I ordered myself a Kadet kit today, I hope to have it in my hand before the end of next month (have to get a license etc). Will post pictures if it's the new version.  ;D

Anyone heard anything else about these?  Have pics or a comparison?

I have something new in mind and knowing the difference would help me a lot.  Specifically in regards to this "height" difference.

Ah, well that explains that. I noticed a month or so ago that when I had a Kadet top end on my Shadow it wasn't fitting in my Bladetech DOH.

Well, actually getting the Shadow into my hands did take some time, but here's some long overdue (crappy) pictures!

From the first test firing. Worked just fine despite -20C, my thumbs was what stopped working first.


Kadet mounted on my Shadow, needed a little filing on the front rails on the kit, not that difficult.


At the range.


It's a Kadet 2, don't think there's a big difference compared to the previous version.

I E-mailed CZ-USA asking about the Kadet 2 for the Omega trigger guns - this is what they told me.

"The Kadet 2 is for the 75 Omega.  It will not work with the P-07 Duty"

I didnt even know there was a Kadet 2 until I saw this post.. Checked mine and it's also a Kadet 2.. Got it from a Swedish vendor with my Shadow last week..
Works great though.. :) Had a few clicks but that is probably due to everything needing to be broken in a little..

I'm new to the CZ world and don't know what a "75 Omega" is. 

I'd like to know if the Kadet 2 will work with an SP-01 Tactical
--CZ-75 SP-01 - CGW Race Hammer and SAO Trigger
--Dan Wesson Heritage
--Dillon 550b (9mm & .45)

Yes it will fit the SP-01 tactical.
