CZ TS 2 and CZ TS 2 Orange, sport tactical pistols from CZ-USA side by side

Tight manufacturing tolerances, supreme precision, and improved ergonomics define the CZ TS 2 series of tactical sport pistols. These pistols are loaded with high-performance features, making all TS 2 and TS 2 Orange models solid choices for practical shooting disciplines like IPSC, USPSA, 3-Gun, and Steel Challenge. Choosing between these proven pistols can be difficult, though, so here’s a side-by-side comparison to help inform buying decisions.

The CZ TS 2 and TS 2 Orange are steel-frame, single-action pistols that share many competition-ready design features. And both versions are available in 9mm or .40 S&W.

Functional and cosmetic updates to the TS 2 line include a flared aluminum magwell for faster reloads and colored aluminum grips with deep checks for a pop of color and, most importantly, a better grip. A deeper beavertail cutaway moves the hand closer to the barrel axis and, along with a lower profile slide, shooters experience less muzzle movement and faster follow-up shots.

The focus on performance is evident throughout the design. A 5.2-inch barrel improves ballistics while giving you a longer radius of sight for improved accuracy. Front and rear cocking serrations on the slide make it easy to store these pistols. A crisp single-action trigger provides a consistent trigger break and a competition hammer reduces lock-up time.

The base model TS 2 has a fiber optic front sight and a fixed rear sight built to withstand rough use from the competition. In contrast, the Orange features an adjustable rear sight for quick point-of-interest adjustments.

CZ reserves the color orange for its high-performance custom sport pistols. So true to color, the TS 2 Orange includes the matching features of the base TS 2 model plus custom upgrades to improve performance. The most notable “orange” upgrade is its “bull” barrel which offers several advantages, including improved accuracy, recoil control, and longer life.

Orange models also include additional cocking serrations on the top front edge of the slide for easy cocking. Like the CZ Shadow 2, the TS 2 ORANGE has a screw-in front sight attachment system for quick sight removal. A hand-tuned cylinder, slide, and frame ensure the tightest tolerances while maintaining reliability.

The CZ TS 2 Orange uses a modified thumb rest and higher positioned ambidextrous hand safeties. CZ shortened the height of the magazine release button, improving grip comfort while maintaining ultra-fast reload speeds.

The base model TS 2 is the perfect pistol for recreational shooting and for newer shooters who are serious about competition. The CZ TS 2 Orange is an advanced competition pistol that takes performance to the next level – a winning choice for high performance shooters. It was optimized for IPSC Standard Division and USPSA Limited Division competition and is a worthy pistol in other shooting disciplines as well.
