While others may focus on looks, Shadow Systems creates hard-use tools that are properly engineered and perfectly executed. Every product is built in Plano, Texas with parts machined in-house. There are few custom pistol companies that can say that they offer a product line that is truly Made in America with American labor; at Shadow Systems, we pride ourselves on being American Made.

Shadow Systems is serious about becoming a leader in this industry and has invested in the resources to do it. We have created a manufacturing facility that allows us to do in-house manufacturing of custom pistol slides for Glock, barrels, triggers, internals, as well as our own full production pistol, the MR918. We have proprietary MIM and injection molding tooling for frames and small parts. All springs and connectors are manufactured to Shadow Systems engineering specifications, to provide upgraded performance and reliability. This investment offers an unparalleled value for our customers in every product that we create.

Our philosophy in this space is to create products that provide unparalleled quality, reliability, price, and delivery in everything we do. Our quality comes from premium materials, premium machining, and REAL testing in carry, combat, and competition roles. Our philosophy on reliability is that “a 4 lbs. bang always beats a 3 lbs. light strike.” We engineer for reliability first and foremost. We have focused on vertical integration to yield cost savings for Shadow, which allows us to provide the best value in the industry. Sophistication in our supply chain management yields shorter lead times and on-time deliveries.
