CZ introduces a new, blockchain-authenticated sport special for the IPSC
14. 11. 2022. CZ is proud to introduce the new CZ TS 2 ORANGE sport pistol, which is primarily designed for competing in the IPSC and is the world’s first sport firearm authenticated on blockchain. Its official release, and worldwide debut, will be at this year's IPSC Handgun World Shoot that will be held from 16 November to 3 December 2022 in Pattaya, Thailand. CZ is the official sponsor of the competition.
“We are very excited to make the first presentation of the brand-new sport special for use in the IPSC, the CZ TS 2 ORANGE pistol, at the 2022 IPSC Handgun World Shoot. This championship model was not only developed in close cooperation with the CZ Shooting Team, but represents the first sport firearm authenticated on blockchain. It follows the recent release of the limited edition, blockchain-authenticated CZ 75 Order of the White Lion,” said Jan Drahota, CEO of Colt CZ Group.
The CZ TS 2 ORANGE is an advanced sport shooter in every respect and a winning choice for all competitors, especially those who want to succeed in the most prestigious IPSC Standard division competitions. It’s also a high-level choice for use in other IPSC disciplines, as well as for hobby shooters who want to improve their shooting performance.
The key feature of the CZ TS 2 ORANGE, which is in line with current trends in practical sport shooting, is a new, heavy polished “bull” barrel, which comes with several advantages: higher accuracy, better control (even during very quick, repetitive shots) and a significantly longer service life.
Easy and reliable cocking has been enhanced by extra cocking serrations on the top front edge of its redesigned slide. A new screw attachment system for the front sight allows for quick and easy removal. The barrel-to-slide and slide-to-frame are hand-fitted to achieve the tightest tolerances, while maintaining extreme reliability with all types of cartridges. A modified recoil spring guide is more buffer-friendly and allows for easier disassembly of the pistol.
The CZ TS 2 ORANGE comes standard with a modified thumb rest, higher positioned ambidextrous manual safeties that can also be used as a thumb rest, and an adjustable rear sight. The height of the magazine release button has been shortened by 2 mm, compared to other models in the CZ TS 2 series, which improves grip comfort, while maintaining impressively fast reloading speeds.
The duralumin grips, adjustable magazine release button, magwell and magazine base plate are made from orange anodized duralumin. The orange color is reserved for customized sport pistols in the CZ range.
Each customer who purchases the CZ TS 2 ORANGE automatically receives the “Performance” package, via NFTs developed on BlockTrust’s Web3-as-a-service platform, which consists of an extended warranty, proof of authenticity, access to the member benefits platform, exclusive content and more.
