Welcome to Shadow Systems
The company that is shaking up the polymer pistol market
Makers of the revolutionary MR918
The world’s highest-value pistols…designed, built, and tested by our nation’s front line protectors, for every man and woman, for any carry situation.
Shadow Systems designs and manufactures premium firearms including the Multi-Role Lightweight 9mm MR918 Elite and Combat. Based in Plano, Texas, the company is committed to offering the most competitively priced, highest-value, U.S. made pistols and parts on the market.
Our team is made up of combat veterans and former law enforcement officers. Every product is designed to be used and abused. While others may focus on looks alone, Shadow Systems creates hard-use tools that are properly engineered and perfectly executed.
I am a firearms instructor for both LE and civilians, so I know a little bit about what constitutes a top tier pistol, and what it needs to be able to deliver if you’re going to run it hard. In this pistol, you have delivered the flattest recoil impulse I have ever shot. The top-flight milled slide gives me the lowest footprint I have ever seen, and the ability to cowitness my red dots with conventional height iron sights is actually a pretty big freaking deal. This is such a high quality, reasonably priced pistol.
All I can say is AMAZING! This is the flattest shooting polymer striker fired pistol I have ever shot! It stays so flat and tracks so good I was seriously impressed. I have a few Glocks with zev dragonfly slides and the recoil impulse on the MR918 is way better. For the price Shadow Systems cannot be beat!!
This gun takes a proven formula and takes it to a level higher than anything else on the market. Even the very high end custom glocks do not hold a candle against this gun. It is the highest quality polymer Frame I have ever felt…this is simply the best polymer gun at any price.”
The 1911 back plate & funnel make this pistol fit my hand like it was custom built for me. 500+ rounds, various ammo, blowup and carry stuff, not one failure and no cleaning… Every round goes where I placed it. Just wish these were available when I was active duty LEO… Thank you for producing such a great defense pistol!
