New (To Me) Accu-Shadow
« on: August 10, 2017, 07:19:17 PM »
Picked it up a week ago. Seller says it only had 600 rounds thru it. I doesn't look like it has had much use at all. It's going be my new IDPA pistol.
I've changed the grips and cut down a CZC Extended Safety. I like the grip better on the G10's over the Aluminum that came on it and I needed the safety to come further back for my short thumbs.

Wow!  That is simply gorgeous.  Nice score and I really like your choice on the grips.

Nice.  Where did you get them grips? I went to the CZ-USA site, and found something similar for the 97, but nothing for the 75.

They are by Cool Hand.
They have an amazon store but I got these from Cool Hand on ebay.

Can you send more pics of the extended safety, bushing, etc.? How tight is the barrel to bushing fit?

I'll try to get some pics of the safety and  barrel/ bushing. I can say when in battery there is NO movement of the barrel.

Here is a couple pics of the safety. I'm not completely satisfied with the profile yet but it's getting there.

Here is a pic of the bushing. It's about the best I can take while standing to the side and looking at the phone from the side.
I refuse to point a gun at my head. (I don't care how unloaded it is)

This is the original safety that comes on the Shadows.
I borrowed this pic from GCW's website.




I purchased the "CZC Extended safety that looks like this. Sticks out from the side almost 1/2".

I think this is the final look and feel I was after. Gives me a much better reach for short thumbs and I don't think it looks too bad. It sticks out from the side the same amount as the origin shadow safety. I'll eventually replace the right side safety with one that matches.
