What is a CZ Airsoft Pistol?
There are a number of CZ Airsoft Pistols available on the market. Action Sport Games is the importer and has kept a steady stream of them coming into the U.S. One of the more popular pistols is the SP-01 Shadow. These pistols have many high end features and replicate a very popular competition pistol. One feature of many of the CZ pistols is the ability to take CO2 or green gas magazines. Green gas works very well if you live in a warmer climate and don't see days below freezing. If you live in a colder climate, CO2 is a better option for you. The temperature range typically works down to 20 degrees F.
The CZ75 airsoft pistols are very popular and come in a variety of flavors. There are spring variants, green gas and CO2 to meet your needs. If you're an avid airsoft player / collector, make sure to check out one of the high end gas blowback variants of these pistols. These have the weight and feel of their real firearm counterparts and are designed to last for a long time.
The SP-01 Shadow Airsoft pistol is designed to mimic the real firearm counterpart which is used for competition shooting. It features many upgraded components that are not normal on stock firearms or airsoft guns. It also has a very modern look for your loadout on the field.
If you're looking to have a rail on your airsoft pistol, many of the CZ variants fit the bill. This includes picatinny rails standard which are ideal for mounting additional accessories such as flashlights to use in low light conditions. Something to note when you add a light to your pistol - you will need to use a holster that will fit the pistol with the light mounted. For this reason, soft sided holsters are popular in this configuration vs a kydex style holster. It is also possible to mount a laser, or even a combo light laser on a picatinny rail. This will give you the ability to aim and illuminate in low light conditions. If you plan on playing indoor airsoft, this is an essential accessory that will give you a competitive advantage.
CZ has been very popular in the US market with real firearms. The Scorpion EVO has taken the market by storm and made a beautiful 9mm replica subgun for a primary rifle. It's now possible to couple your Airsoft CZ pistol with a rifle and make a full CZ loadout.
