CZ Shadow 2 maintenance and cleaning
« on: September 08, 2016, 11:41:36 AM »
hello to you all,


Still waiting for my licence, but I purchased a CZ Shadow 2.


As a new shooter, I would like to hear from you guys what I need to keep this pistol spic and span. What lube, grease or other products? Boresnake or stick with patches?


Thans a lot !

I use weapon shield, boresnake it after range trip and or match. I break it down quarterly and give it a good cleaning and inspection.
The shadow 2 is here in the states yet but it's what I do with all my cz's

Hello dvrdwn72,


Thanks 4 your insights! I assume you put some Waeponshield on the boresnake? You don't use some led remover for the barrel?

Correct. Now if I get lazy and slack on cleaning I'll run some soaked patches through the bore and let it sois mostly soak the boresnake, run it through a few times when I'm done shooting.

Might have to get a snake for my Shadow 2 also. Got them for rifles, hadn't considered them for a pistol.

On the Hoppes packaging it shows the snake being used on the gun when it's whole, wouldn't it be easier to break out the barrel and just snake it?

Do you remove the barrel or leave it in the gun?

There is something about Hopppes #9 and patches that makes me happy.  :)

I usually bore snake my 75 Shadow after every range session.  I do a basic field strip and cleaning every 200-400 rounds and a deep clean every couple thousand.  I use Slide Glide on the rails but I've tried various greases and oils and haven't seen much difference.

I've been very happy with Weapon Shield

as motivated by what I saw in this promo vid
https://youtu.be/lcBu6q61G3M
where approximately two orders of magnitude (100X, as judged by ~8X load carried by ~1/12 the area) superiority over competitive products is demonstrated before your very eyes. Very hard to fake unless by means of competitive product sleight-of-hand...
