Description

The Shadow Systems Armorer’s Tool (3/32 or 2.5 mm punch) is designed to support armorer operations on Shadow Systems pistols to a level not possible with similar tools on the market.

The length of the tool allows easy manipulation of the extractor depressor plunger and tensioning pin on optic cut slides.  Most armorer’s tools do not have sufficient length to perform this task easily.

The Armorer’s Tool features a specially designed handle that allows the user to quickly center certain pins on the pistol without “eyeballing” the pin’s position. It removes and centers the Trigger Housing Pin, Locking Block Pin, and Trigger Axis Pin.

The Shadow Systems Armorer’s Tool truly is the second best thing in your range bag, after your Shadow Systems pistol of course!

Amazing little pistol.

I’ve been waiting on Glock to make a similar gun to the CR920 for a few years now and I thought I was settling for the CR920. Boy was I wrong. I currently carry a Glock 43 or 48 depending on the weather, however, this will be replacing both. It shoots great, I completed the 200rnd break-in period without a single malfunction . Accuracy is excellent. I couldn’t be happier. I’ve always been a diehard Glock fan, but I’ll be adding some Shadow Systems guns to my collection.

Great little and accurate pistol

Picked up the CR920 Combat last Thursday, cleaned it that night and took it to the range the next day. I wanted to put 200 rounds through it, however the frame started to get hot at around 165 rounds and shut it down. Hopefully, I won’t be getting into any fire fights anytime soon. I’ve ran around 500 rounds through it with no malfunctions.

I picked up an inexpensive Desantis holster at my local range for the 43X MOS and fits perfectly. This pistol is now my summer carry gun. Will be picking up either a MR920 or XR920, just shopping around for the best price.

CR 920 is perfect

The War poet CR 920 is the very first pistol I have ever had that is perfect right out of the box. It shoots very comfortably, just as well as my full size pistols. The Glock 43 is officially retired. I have short fingers, so I need a smaller gun, and this fits the bill quite nicely. I agree with John Lovell, this is my new edc. Now, next up, you guys need to adapt it to the slightly larger G48 size. Keep the slim grip, and have it use the 15 rd shield magazine, or go for more if you are adventurous. I guarantee I will buy one of them if you do!

CR920

Just purchased a CR920 Elite. It is the most well built pistol I have ever owned. Although I paid generously for it, the old saying you get what you pay for. This is by no means a sub-par or an okay pistol. It is by far the most shootable pistol that I could shoot all day at the range. It’s looks are superior to others. Just ordered a Shield RMSc red dot for it. Very easy to carry. And 13 rounds. You guys did an EXCELLENT job on the CR. Love the bronze barrel. Very easy to clean.
Keep up the great work.
Thanks

SS Knows How To Do It

Purchased a CR920 Elite. You get what you pay for. I can’t wait to get to the range 2 times a week. This gun is amazing. The quality of the pistol is very high. The parts are very high quality. The customer service is very high. The videos are very helpful. Please make a video on the disassembly of the 13 round CR920 mag. I got a Shield RMSc red dot sight and it fit like a glove. Your Operation Manual is very informative. When I go to the gun shop now I go straight to the SS counter. I have a little over 1,000 rounds and the trigger just keeps getting better. I love the bronze barrel.
JUST A GREAT PRODUCT. KEEP IT UP.

disappointed

My new CR920 elite was damaging the barrel after just a couple shots. I emailed Shadow Systems and they wanted to look at it. I sent it in, and I called them after a couple weeks of them receiving it and they told me the slide was out of spec and was damaging the barrel. They said they were waiting for parts to complete the repair. I replied immediately and asked them if they could give me an estimated ETA when the parts would be available and they stopped replying. I have sent them multiple emails, left a Facebook message and two voicemails and with no response. I am sitting at 4 weeks now with no idea now because they wont reply to any message I send them.

...It was so good I had to buy 2

I purchased the SS-CR920 Elite about a month ago. Customer service was great and verified I got a recent model with all the revisions (Trigger & Barrel).

ZERO malfunction during the 200 break in period… and boy is the tigger smooth now.

Picked up a Black Smith Tactical G43X MOS Flex rig as well as a T1C Axis-Elite and the fit is perfect.

I loved the CR920 so much I HAD to purchase the War Poet edition.

Thank you,
Shadow Systems

Perfect!

Shadow Systems Team,

I want to thank all involved as my CR 920 Elite & my Dr 920 combat are without question the best guns I have ever owned. 200 plus rounds through both platforms, no feeding issues, consistent groups and smooth shooting.

Keep up the great work & I am very much looking forward to your future releases.

Respectfully,
Mike

Very nice product

Recently took the CR920 to the range to see what it would do. Was expecting some minor issues, as I had not yet went through the break in period, but no, the gun performed flawlessly. I only had one issue, and it has nothing to do with product design or functionality. I have HUGE hands, and I had a problem getting a comfortable grip on it. Let’s face it, when you have hands my size, sub-compact is not what you need to shoot. Other than that, this gun is awesome! I also have the MR920L, which is perfectly sized for me, and is another great handgun. Anytime I am at the range or gun shop, I highly recommend Shadow Systems products to other customers. Thank you for making such a wonderful line of handguns. Keep up the great work!

One of my favorite guns.

This gun fits so well in the hand thanks to the unique way they sat up the back straps they don’t just change the size but change the grip and how the gun feels meaning if you’ve ever had a handgun you’ll find a grip that’s comfortable for you. Its a nail driver right out of the box and the over all construction of the gun is one of Texas and Americans pride and love. Very happy with my gun and hope to buy a few more models down the road.

Great Gun

I have a lot of guns. I just bought the DR920 after reading the reviews and watching several videos including John Lovell’s. This is a great and accurate gun.

I am not sure on the mag release I think it would benefit from a bit more meat on it.

I have had zero issues in the first 1000 rounds down range.

Can't say enough great things about this pistol!

My Shadow Systems DR 920 has really made my range visits exciting again! I just love the way it shoots and handles. I have mine configured with standard iron sights and a compensator. It is highly accurate and follow up shots can be fired with incredible speed and precision.

Instantly this pistol has eclipsed all others for me. It’s combination of looks, performance, reliability, and value simply place it in another category.

I just love it!

High Performance / Outstanding Value

Went to my LGS last week to buy a G17 that I could build up as a host for a suppressor I ordered a couple months ago. Surprisingly, they didn’t have any G17s (or even a full size P320, which would have been an acceptable substitute) so I almost gave up. Sensing my disappointment, the salesman asked me how he could help. I told him what I was looking for and he suggested a DR920 with the threaded barrel. I had heard of Shadow Systems from John Lovell, but I’d personally never fired one. That being said, I’ve had several custom Glocks built for me, and they usually cost me nearly twice what the DR920 was priced at, so I figured I couldn’t lose.

I finally took it to the range yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. With the target at 6 yards, my holes were touching and I’m honestly not that great of a shooter. Even speeding up my shots, almost to what I’d consider “rapid fire”, my groups were only around 4”. I don’t know what kind of magic Shadow Systems puts in these guns, but I shot my DR920 better than I shoot my stock G17 Gen5, and I shoot that G17 a lot! Then when you consider that the DR920 comes with a threaded barrel AND an optic cut right out of the box, I think this may be the best value in handguns today!

I’m very happy with my Shadow Systems DR920, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

I absolutely love this firearm. It shoots like a dream and is very accurate. Magazine changes are smooth and fast. Good job Shadow Systems.

Accurate, amazing, and backed by the Best Company!

I’ve shot dozens of pistols. This is by far my favorite that I own and won’t be getting rid of it. Yes, you need to break it in with 124gr ammo, but then it becomes something amazing. If you want something that can do it all buy this pistol. It’s the perfect size, light, shoots amazing, and is the best value in the industry. The company is amazing with customer service if you have questions. Don’t hesitate if you need a do it all gun!

The Best

I purchased a MR918 Combat back in 2019 I liked it enough that I followed it up with a MR918 Elite and mounted a Trijicon RMR. I got an opportunity to put my hands on a DR920 Combat a couple weeks ago. As soon as I picked it up I knew. It fit my hand like it was meant to be there. I’ve only put 500 rounds through it since then but in my opinion the DR920 is the best out of the box defensive handgun I have ever shot. I carry it concealed on a daily basis. Great Job Guy’s!!

The DR920 is a great pistol!

I just picked up my DR920 this week and put 500+ rounds of various brands through it today. It worked perfectly with all the different brands I used. I shot at 5m, 10m, and 25m and the DR920 stayed on target every shot. I will highly recommend the DR920 for your next pistol purchase. It’s definitely an upgrade from whatever you are shooting or carrying now.

So good I have two

I carried the glock series at work for 14 years and never really cared for them that much. I got medically retired and about 5 years later picked up a MR918 combat and told my friend I had to have it. I purchased it from him and fell in love with it. I carried it for about a year and it ran flawlessly. Loved it so much that I now have a MR920 combat and soon it will be my new daily carry. Love the customer service as well.

great pistol with excellent service

The mr920 combat is the perfect pistol to fit my needs.I purchased this solely to protect my family.I definitely don’t have the time I would like to spend on the range vs pre kids, but the way SS designed the different grips is genius.I just practice dry firing and my sights are aligned almost immediately since the grip angle fits naturally with my hands when I present the pistol, I’m already ‘zeroed in’. I have many different 9mm pistols, and I’m much slower at sight alignment with those. It’s also ridiculously light compared the others’. Their customer is so proactive! I contacted them and they ensured I was taken care of! Plus, I live in the same city and always support local business’! Thanks for providing a quality product with exceptional service!

DR920 - Noticeable improvements over the MR series

This is my third SSC handgun; also owning an MR920 and MR920L. There are marked improvements in the design here. The striker has been redesigned, a striker return assist spring has been added, and the firing system springs appear to be different. Those changes have resulted in a greatly improved trigger feel for the everyday end-user.

My use case is different. I want this to be a competition gun. All it took was a mirrored finish polishing of the trigger group’s metal contact points and a lighter weight firing pin safety spring to tune this sucker into my perfect trigger.

The ergonomics are equally as outstanding as the MR versions, which are the best in the game. The accuracy is excellent right out of the box.

The gun’s metal finish is simply outstanding. In the strangest turn of events, I was at a gravel range and a gust of wind blew my gun mat and empty DR920 off my shooting bench before I’d even had a chance to fire it for the first time. It landed in the gravel and bounced around a bit. I picked it up and, even after a 3′ drop into gravel, there wasn’t a single scratch on it.

My only complaint is that it’s difficult to find front/rear competition sight sets that are compatible with any SSC guns. I don’t run a red dot due vision astigmatism. I want a set of competition sights and there just aren’t any out there. I’m experimenting with some Ameriglo custom combos right now and having only a fair amount of luck. To be clear, there are plenty of excellent combat/duty sight sets out there which are compatible.

Yeah, that was wordy, but there’s a lot to say. Hopefully this review helps you with your decision no matter your use case. These are awesome guns and I haven’t looked back at Glock since discovering Shadow Systems.

I have a DR 920 I carry on duty as a police officer. I have an optic mounted on it and this is the flattest shooting most accurate and reliable pistol I’ve shot

My duty pistol

I currently carry a DR920 as my duty pistol. It replaced my MR920L as my duty firearm. I was extremely pleased with my MR920L but I wanted a Glock 17 sized pistol. My DR920 is extremely soft shooting. It is extremely accurate. I have never had a malfunction. Everyone who has shot this pistol has been very impressed. I chose this pistol as my duty pistol. That’s the best recommendation I can make

Best 9M system I've ever shot

Bought the DR920 after I already purchased both MR920 variants while looking for a competition rig. The MR format was incredible, fast, compact and everything I expect with a G19 Gen5 but the DR920 gave me a slightly larger grip and better recoil control that absolutely crushed my accuracy goals.

Hemi version of a Glock

I purchased this pistol not knowing a whole lot about the company. I liked all the stippling, the weight and size and the fact it is compatible with all G19 items.
I took it to the range the day after I received it and fired the 200 break in rounds. I was made a beleiver about the MR920 shooting fast and flat.

I am always on the look out for an DR920. I carry the issued G17 at work but will switch when I am able to get a DR 920. The MR 920 is my EDC/off duty choice.
This pistol is a home run of a design and set up.

Wow

I’m going to start by saying I am not a Glock fan. My wife loves them. I preferred my CZ P10. Nothing wrong with Glocks they just don’t fit my hands well. So needless to say I wanted another polymer wonder gun! I then took a chance on a DR920 because of the reviews I’ve seen. I did not hold one first and thought man I hope I didn’t throw my money away or it’s going to go to my wife! Soon as I got it I thought wow this looks and feels incredible, I hope it shoots as good as it looks and feels. Let me tell you it did not disappoint! I think it will be my new go to and I think I’m going to sell my 365 for a cr920 next!

DR920 Elite

Well I was looking for a “workin gun” for some time , 2 years… and finally stoped at Ss920 , let me tell you that it was the Best feet for me out of many, and more expensive guns.

I followed the break in process with 0 problems, and at about 1000 round s I got a new Glock magazine, at that point I dataset having FTF problems etc, After call to SS support they suggested to check on the MAG , and what you know… Glock mag had a follower problem. Replaced it with a new Meg and 0 problems after 2-3k rounds in r weeks.

I love the accuracy of the SS920 super flat , fast and low recoil.

P.S this is my EDC and now I trust it for its purpose.

DR920 Elite "Perfect"

This is my personal review of the Shadow Systems DR920 Elite.
I purchased my DR920 Elite locally after watching and reading many reviews.

I work as an elected county sheriff in West Texas. My county is a border county with Mexico. It’s a tough area, sometimes remote and always “interesting”. The firearm I carry to protect me as well as others must be 100% reliable. I demand nothing less. Lives depended on it.

Being a gun-guy, I have many different pistols, to include Glocks. I’m also a Glock Armorer and enjoy working on them for myself and others. I’m also a firearms Instructor.

After purchasing my DR920 I brought it home and field stripped it, cleaned it and applied CLP as directed. Then I went to the range.

I was aware of the recommended break-in period and had recently watched the Guns America review on an MR920. So, let’s begin.

I fired a total of 400 rounds of 9mm ammo through my DR920 Elite. Everything from Federal 115gr FMJ, Blazer Brass 124gr FMJ and Hornady Critical Duty 135gr Flexlock. I used the included Magpul mags and Glock 17 mags with stock baseplates and mags with extended plus five baseplates. I was not gentle, the gun got warmed up real nice! I shot paper and steel, ran several drills in the hot West Texas sun and dirt. Result?

My DR920 Elite had ZERO malfunctions of any kind…ZERO. It functioned perfectly, was accurate, and the ergonomics far exceeded my expectations. I also brought with me a Gen 5 Glock 45, 9mm just for a little friendly competition, which, as it turned out, was no competition.

Final thoughts. I can carry whatever I want. “My” Shadow Systems DR920 Elite now rests in my duty holster and is on “Active Duty”. Saving up for another one!

Five stars!

I’m in love with this pistol to say the least. The customer service on the other hand I’m not sure about. I’ve call several times and left a couple of voicemails and I’ve sent an email. I’m still waiting for someone to respond.

Amazing Gun with amazing looks!

I went to go buy my first striker fired pistol and everyone kept telling me to buy a Glock. I have an issue with not keeping things “basic” so I went through and priced out buying a Glock 17 with all of the upgrades I wanted for it. As I was doing that I came across the Shadow Systems small area of a case my local store and looked at the DR920 Elite which had everything I would have upgraded in the Glock 17. I instantly loved the feel and the looks and decided to buy it that day. I have never been happier with a handgun! It is my primary home defense gun as well now.

Good company

I’ll try to be as unbiased as possible. I bought a DR920 Elite. For the first 1000 rounds it worked flawlessly. After 1000 rounds I had 3-5 “Failure to reset” the TRIGGER per 100 rounds up to 1300 rounds. At the first 7 failures to reset I stopped shooting it. Called Shadow Systems and they sent me a new Trigger. I was happy they sent me one to replace! But! The same problem happened. Shot a few hundred more and more failures to reset. I sent it in for warranty work (quick turn around- approx a week) to which the only service done was putting a new trigger on it and sending it back. They assured me they test fired it and it didn’t have any problems. I asked if they would re run the measurements (slide, firing pin, etc) but they didn’t. I then took it to the range for testing again just to have MORE FAILURES TO RESET. I sent videos with proof of it happening. This time it was 4-5 times per 50 rounds. I was sent another shipping label to send it in again. ( this here is my own ego ) – I went and bought another gun to EDC, threw my $1000 gun in my safe out of frustration where it will sit forever. If I can’t trust my sidekick I don’t trust it in anyone else’s hands. Maybe I got a wild flyer gun. A fluke or something crazy abnormal.

The staff (Josh) who I worked with was great! And easy to work with. It most likely was not his fault for not having it checked out completely while it was there for warranty work.

Amazingly built pistol. Super pretty too!

Not only is this pistol very well made, it also looks amazing. Feels absolutely perfect in the hand and the texturing isn’t too abrasive. I’m very happy that I decided to purchase this pistol instead of spending a lot more money and time customizing one myself. Highly recommended.

Great Customer Service

While I like everything about the looks and feel of my new pistol, I haven’t actually shot it yet.

The correct spacer for my red dot was accidentally left out of the package (stuff happens).

I called Shadow Systems and they had it to me in a very few days. No hassle. I appreciate service like that!

Respect the break in period

DR920 elite non-threaded barrel in black – all the good stuff you expect. The backstrap and magwell system is easy to swap and works. Zeroed the red dot @15 yards and found the gun very accurate.

My break in period consisted of the slide locking open after each shot for 2 mags. In fact I thought the Pmag Shadow Systems included may have been the issue so I swapped to a Glock mag, same issue. Popped out the pin and slide stop, quick inspection then put it back and got 2 consecutive rounds to fire. Third mag got longer strings, by the end of the fourth mag issue was resolved.

I was pretty nervous as locking the slide after every round seems like a steep break in. After 50 rounds that issue is gone. Approximately 160 rounds fired today, I’ll runt at least 100 through it next week to check again. Otherwise great gun.

Best pistol for the price

I’ve had this dr920 elite for a month now and it’s run flawlessly with 500rds so far. I really like how you can get such a capable pistol for less than upgrading a stock glock. I have zero complaints with it and I really hope they come out with a g43 size variant soon so my wife can upgrade her edc as well.

Great Gun

I bought a DR920 in June. It was my first gun purchase ever. It is a great gun. I thought it was going to take a while to get better but with this gun in only a few weeks I am shooting like a seasoned veteran shooter. A few guys that work at the range have tried it and when they shoot it their eyes light up. They all carry Glocks and everyone one of them say this is a great shooting gun. They love it. I am very happy i bought a shadow system and not a glock. Glocks are great guns but this is a step up.

Great pistol great company and really good people

I recently purchased my second Shadow Systems DR920, one is the Elite model the other a Warrior Poet Society edition and all I can say is what a great pistol. In addition to being an incredible weapons platform Shadow Systems has proven to be customer centric. When I bought my first DR920 it unfortunately shipped with 2 of the back straps for the compact model. All it took was one phone call, answered on the second ring I might add, and in no time at all I had said back straps in hand. Then today 9/20/21 while at my local LGS I happened to run into two of Shadow Systems reps in the parking lot, what a great couple of guys. After a really nice conversation the guys were kind enough to hook me up with some moral patches, stickers and a pen. Like I said in the subject line great pistol great company and good really good people. I’ve owned and carried glocks for over 20 years and can confidently say Shadow Systems has not only raised the bar they have brought to market a weapons platform I trust my life and those I love and care for with thank you Shadow Systems

Fantastic firearm. Flat shooting… It just makes me smile how good it is. I already own a mr920 and was looking forward for the DR920. Both guns are developed with common sense shooting fundamentals. If you are considering buying this gun–you should.

GRRRREEEEAAAAAT!

I have owned and been shooting Glock pistols for 30 years now.
The Shadow Systems DR920 is the perfect modernization of a great platform.
You simply can not beat the value of these pistols for all the custom features, the fit and finish, the performance.
No other optic mounting system compares to these.

Best guns I’ve owned

I love these guns. I own a War Piet and a MR920 elite. I’ve run 2k to 3k rounds through my guns a month and I’ve never had a failure. The break in period is very important with these guns but again no failures at all while firing. Thank you Shadow Systems. Great product!

Best there is!

I daily carry an MR920 Combat with a TLR7a, backup is a MR920L Elite and my newest full size is the DR920 Elite, these guns have all performed flawlessly and have protected my family since the release of the MR920.

The ergonomics and overall weight,comfort and accuracy cant be matched unless your willing to drop another $1,000+ into any other handgun.

DR920 review

This is my 1st Shadow Systems handgun and after shooting it…….it won’t be my last!

I don’t have many what I consider higher end handguns, but this purchase may just push me over that line. Fit and finish are awesome. Weight is great. Balance is just about perfect.
I’m new to Shadow Systems and hadn’t heard much about them prior, but the fact that a handgun of this style, design and quality is made right here in the good ole USA just sealed the deal for me.
Next on the horizon will be the MR920 elite.
Thanks guys for a great 1st purchase from your company

DR920 Elite Review

The reliability and performance on the DR920 has been top tier. The ergonomics, barrel/slide fit, and trigger promote excellent accuracy and follow-up shot consistency. The DR920 points naturally and the lightweight slide on the Elite allows for great recoil control, with quick Dot re-acquisition on RDS Equipped guns. I have been very impressed, and the look on everyone else’s face when they grab it says it all. Awe followed by Jealousy. Great product, keep it up!

Great Handgun

Quality is far superior than the standard Glock. Fit and feel is amazing. Love the serrations and slide cuts. Only real issue is on the frame, the gas pedal feature adds some extra material to where the gun is not a clean fit in my G17 holsters.

Lots of Hype | Honestly Kind of Disappointing

Before I get slammed here.
I want to validate what I am saying.
I thought it would shoot well and it does.

It shoots better than a stock Glock but there is thing kind of thing sound when pulling the trigger I don’t care for like the sound is resonating inside the gun some where you pull the trigger.

Even Gucci Glock triggers are still crunchy Glock garbage just lighter and slightly smoother to the break.
That break is crunchy in Gucci and regular Glocks.
I just hate it.

The gun just feels to light and not solid.
It shoots well and is accurate.
The flattest gun on the market, thats a joke.

Look at other guns like any staccato P my Walther SF 4 inch and 5 inch.
My Zev 0z9
Any CZ 75 variant, the sig P210.
These are all another 200 to 1500 extra sure but they are way better and flatter guns.

You spend over $1000 for a gun thats worth in value $700.
I just cannot justify this when there are so many other better choices.

The Zev 0z9 eats this thing for lunch in every single way for another $500 or so.
Wouldn’t you rather pay another $500 and get the best version of a Gucci Glock there is, I would.

Even better than the Zev both Walther Steel Frames shoot unbelievably flat and the trigger is the best you can really get for striker fired.

Walther today is probably making the best value Guns for the the Money you spend today.
Meaning for every dollar you spend at Walther they give you tons of Value.
Sig is probably a close second for me.

Staccato is a great Gun but expensive so the gun is great but the value is not.

CZ 75 anyone variant same as Walther unbelievable value for the Money you spend there.

You want people to buy your shadow guns okay then build a better gun or lower the price and people will stop criticizing you.

I feel like I got took for $300 dollars essentially.

The barrel is great, the optics system is a really neat touch.
The trigger well we don’t want to go there.
The slide does not have near that premium feel that zev does.

The frame meh it feels like every Gucci Glock frame.
Credit for the original back strap system however.

Zev is the bar in the Gucci Glock world for a stock gun, it just is..

Your DR920 Elite has been my edc since I bought it around six months ago. Added a Holosun Hs507c and a Bravo owb holster and don’t know I have it on. Have shot it enough to sight in and be comfortable with it but really look forward to putting many more rounds through it when ammo becomes more available. Really satisfied with the purchase Keep up the good work!!

Recently acquired the Shadow Systems DR920 Elite. Put the first 100 through it and it ran like expected. Also put a couple hundred through my MR920 Elite and my War Poet MR920. They all worked great. I am looking forward to see what the future holds for Shadow Systems.

AMAZING SHOOTER!!

I’ve owned several custom glocks and fully built Glock based platform pistols by various manufacturers over the years. I can honestly say that this is hands down my favorite shooter out of ever one I’ve owned. Shoots supper flat! Extremely accurate, and just plain fun to shoot. On top of outstanding products, their customer service is a thousand times better than ANY brand firearm manufacturer I’ve ever dealt with. Very prompt and personal service. I felt like all my questions were always answers very quickly and like I was talking to a friend on the other end of the line. Not just a client. I plan on doing much more business with them in the future! A++++

I own several guns, I had to use Glock for duty and always had a love hate relationship with Glock. Just by chance I discovered Shadow Systems and immediately love to shoot this gun. I own several of their guns and love each and every one. I ordered a few direct and always have had a great experience. The staff are fantastic and excel in customer service.

Shadow System: Polymer Pistol finally done right

Great attention to important details as well consumer wanted details. Superior grip with the addition of being able to adjust the grip angle truly make their guns not only easier to control but also make it so for a much broader range of shooters. not to mention the superior grip texture and slide cuts, as well as by far the best “from the factory” optics system. Perhaps better than all that, is the attention they seem to pay to their consumers, whether it be to improve on certain features or add certain features. I can’t say enough good things about shadow systems thus far, I like them so much so that I currently own 3 and will probably be adding a 4th soon. My only hopes are, as they continue to grow, they keep up the fantastic customer service, and I’m hoping that in the near future they add a G43X sized model to the line up, or at least something in a subcompact model.

New purchase

I do not often leave reviews but must say how pleased I am with this pistol. Brought it home disassembled and cleaned put around 250 rounds thru it. All I can say is WOW!!! Fells great shoots great. Love the sights and trigger pull and basically everything about it! Have a farm made my own range paper and steel targets. At 25 yds I was making that dueling tree steel targets dance. I am not that good a shot 63 years old LOL must be the pistol. My new favorite. Thanks for a great product plus American made big plus for me

Not what I was hoping for

Let me start off by saying I own 4 shadow systems pistols and all of them have been flat shooting, reliable and quality firearms.
This DR920P however is just a problem.
Even after the break in period, I had nose up Jams on the initial feed.
After trying the 15 pound spring the feed issues went away..but now it’s constant double feeds and the occasional stovepipe.
I’m running high quality 124g full power loads and no I am not limp wristing the firearm.
Working with customer support, but as of right now this firearm is unusable.

Best Glock replacement pistol after some initial problems were corrected

Pistol was recieved brand new with a broken firing pin/striker assembly (tip of striker was completely missing) and would not fire out of the box. Contacted Shadow Systems about the issue and they fixed the problem promptly with a new striker assembly, but this issue was very disconcerting considering the pistol arrived to me out of the box in non-working condition.

Fit, finish, quality and lock up of pistol is very nice. Grip texture is almost perfect. Trigger is very nice. Sights are amazing. Optional magazine well is a nice added option, but may be a bit delicate for hard tactical/combat use as it may break away from the grip if stuck on the front lip at an upward angle. Magazines are Magpul and are all garbage. Bad followers, no witness holes, but pistol will work with ETS and factory Glock magazines so I replaced them all immediately. Gun is extremely accurate and recoil is very light with good controllability for fast follow up shots. Pistol works with all of my Glock holsters from JM Custom and Blackpoint Tactical. Overall, pistol is much better than a stock Glock and is comparable to custom Glocks costing much more. Pistol has since been discontinued and is no longer available which I feel was a terrible move on the part of Shadow Systems as this is a very nice gun that I feel is actually nicer than the new replacement MR920 model. Time/use will tell, but so far this is a very nice Glock replacement pistol that is better than any Glock I have ever owned-shame that it’s no longer obtainable…

“Blem” mr918 frame

Zero complaints.

Simply put, outstanding.

I currently use an MR918 frame with a custom milled G19 slide for my duty weapon and EDC. I’ve enjoyed the Shadow Systems slides as well, and consider them top notch. The frame is outstanding, and is a marked improvement over the OEM Glock frame.

The texture is exactly what I wanted, and I wish it was available from the OEM. It’s a small detail, but one that makes a significant enough difference in wet weather that it’s something that I would demand for any duty weapon since it helps maintain a positive grip when my hands are wet from rain, snow, sleet, sweat, and even blood (non-combat related, thankfully).

The grip angle and size can be adjusted using the backstraps to best suit the individual, and is a better implementation than what Glock has to offer. Another small detail, but one that helps with fitting the firearm to the individual, rather than having to train around a firearm that only mostly fits.

The magwell comes with a minor flare that works well as is, though an additional magwell can be added to ensure a reloads are difficult to miss. An additional benefit to the optional magwell is that it forces my dominant hand into the same position each time, every time. The added consistency is the biggest benefit that I’ve found.

The double trigger undercuts allow for a higher natural grip without the famed “Glock knuckle”. In additional to better ergonomics and control, it adds another index point for my support hand, which again helps with consistency in my grip.

Additional features that I’ve noticed are that the extended magwell is still low profile enough to conceal with a decent holster and belt. It’s on par with the Magpul magwell regarding size, and functions quite well. The beavertail is enhanced enough that I can choke up high on the grip without getting bitten by the slide, and requires me trying to get bitten to do it. The overall layout of the index surfaces and features lends to a repeatable and consistent grip, which allows me to rip and go more naturally.

All of these features are stock, and the added cost to the Shadow Systems offering is still less than the cost of each of these upgrades being added individually to an OEM frame. The same can be said for their slide, so the complete package is on par or costs less than a fully custom Glock, while still providing better overall features.

The Shadow Systems offerings won’t make you master class Tier 1 operators. That only comes with consistent quality training and practice. However, it does reduce limitations stemming from the gun by improving better ergonomics, high reliability, and a better overall fit with the chosen system. If a Shadow Systems is within budget, then I highly recommend one.

So happy

Bought the MR918 elite a little over a year ago, and now have a little over 1600 rounds through it. Needed a little break on period but now that it’s broken in, it runs flawlessly. I’ve had it out to Frontsight in Nevada and DG’d (distinguished grad) their 4 day defensive handgun course. Fit and finish are great. I can run my gun through multitarget and holster drills with timed pressure like a veteran. Love this gun. Would consider buying the newest generation full size.

I’ve carried this for over a year as my daily cc and its been great. I have found most iwb holsters fit and retain very well. The best part of this firearm is the back straps the ability to make the gun fit and aim is priceless. And the customer service is one of the best.

Reigning Champion

So far this is the best bang for the buck on the market. I LOVE the interchangeable grip system because I’ve got a G19 size pistol with a G17 grip, without the discomfort of either ones trigger guard. One of the best triggers out of the box with great sights that cowitness perfectly with my 507 (lower 1/4ish). they don’t obscure my picture through the red dot or draw my attention away from it like so many others I’ve seen. It’s accurate and reliable as the day is long. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up a DR20 if I had the cheddar.

Great package

Overall I am very pleased with my pistol. I caught interest in shadow systems after originally liking glocks, but wanting to upgrade the sights among other things right away. In comes the MR918. I purchased my MR918 at a local gun store after the MR920 was already out. I believe I got the best “Glock” out of the box that is possible for this price point. Taking a stock Glock and making it like this pistol would cost a lot more. Great gun, this is my main side arm.

Amazing gun!

My MR918 simply amazing. It shoots flat, feels very precise and is the best shooting out-of-the-box pistol under $1000 on the market. Bar none. I’ve put around 300 rounds through this baby with zero issues. The trigger is very tactile and has a smooth pull with a very satisfying reset. Target acquisition is simple with the bright forward sight. The included options for changing out the backstrap gives you a nice custom feel for shooters of any other style weapon. The magwell option makes reloads a breeze and can make anyone feel like John Wick. All in all, this pistol is worth every penny and then some.

Best Bang for your Buck

Being stuck in Canada, we don’t have many options for firearms and what we do get sells out very quickly. That said, I am new to shooting at the ripe age of 47 and have jumped in with both feet. I have tried every single pistol I could get my hands on and purchased those that were available (and that I could afford). I can say that the way Shadow Systems approaches the design of their firearms truly reflects what shooters (especially new shooters) should be looking for in a pistol. Familiar lines coupled with tweaks that appear to be cosmetic but suddenly become essential as soon as you pick it up. The feel in the hand is unlike most others in the market and the ability to EASILY change back straps is awesome. Light, small and instinctively controllable , the MR918 is an absolute dream. As soon as you start learning about trigger control, reset and grip, everything about this pistol helps you understand these concepts immediately. Although not inexpensive, the MR918 is far above their competition in the under $1500 (CDN) range. Just shooting it has improved my shooting on all my other pistols! Keep up the good work!

Amazing little pistol.

I’ve been waiting on Glock to make a similar gun to the CR920 for a few years now and I thought I was settling for the CR920. Boy was I wrong. I currently carry a Glock 43 or 48 depending on the weather, however, this will be replacing both. It shoots great, I completed the 200rnd break-in period without a single malfunction . Accuracy is excellent. I couldn’t be happier. I’ve always been a diehard Glock fan, but I’ll be adding some Shadow Systems guns to my collection.

Great little and accurate pistol

Picked up the CR920 Combat last Thursday, cleaned it that night and took it to the range the next day. I wanted to put 200 rounds through it, however the frame started to get hot at around 165 rounds and shut it down. Hopefully, I won’t be getting into any fire fights anytime soon. I’ve ran around 500 rounds through it with no malfunctions.

I picked up an inexpensive Desantis holster at my local range for the 43X MOS and fits perfectly. This pistol is now my summer carry gun. Will be picking up either a MR920 or XR920, just shopping around for the best price.

CR 920 is perfect

The War poet CR 920 is the very first pistol I have ever had that is perfect right out of the box. It shoots very comfortably, just as well as my full size pistols. The Glock 43 is officially retired. I have short fingers, so I need a smaller gun, and this fits the bill quite nicely. I agree with John Lovell, this is my new edc. Now, next up, you guys need to adapt it to the slightly larger G48 size. Keep the slim grip, and have it use the 15 rd shield magazine, or go for more if you are adventurous. I guarantee I will buy one of them if you do!

My new CR920 elite was damaging the barrel after just a couple shots. I emailed Shadow Systems and they wanted to look at it. I sent it in, and I called them after a couple weeks of them receiving it and they told me the slide was out of spec and was damaging the barrel. They said they were waiting for parts to complete the repair. I replied immediately and asked them if they could give me an estimated ETA when the parts would be available and they stopped replying. I have sent them multiple emails, left a Facebook message and two voicemails and with no response. I am sitting at 4 weeks now with no idea now because they wont reply to any message I send them.

...It was so good I had to buy 2

I purchased the SS-CR920 Elite about a month ago. Customer service was great and verified I got a recent model with all the revisions (Trigger & Barrel).

ZERO malfunction during the 200 break in period… and boy is the tigger smooth now.

Picked up a Black Smith Tactical G43X MOS Flex rig as well as a T1C Axis-Elite and the fit is perfect.

I loved the CR920 so much I HAD to purchase the War Poet edition.

Thank you,

Shadow Systems Team,

I want to thank all involved as my CR 920 Elite & my Dr 920 combat are without question the best guns I have ever owned. 200 plus rounds through both platforms, no feeding issues, consistent groups and smooth shooting.

Keep up the great work & I am very much looking forward to your future releases.

CR920

Just purchased a CR920 Elite. It is the most well built pistol I have ever owned. Although I paid generously for it, the old saying you get what you pay for. This is by no means a sub-par or an okay pistol. It is by far the most shootable pistol that I could shoot all day at the range. It’s looks are superior to others. Just ordered a Shield RMSc red dot for it. Very easy to carry. And 13 rounds. You guys did an EXCELLENT job on the CR. Love the bronze barrel. Very easy to clean.
Keep up the great work.
Thanks

SS Knows How To Do It

Purchased a CR920 Elite. You get what you pay for. I can’t wait to get to the range 2 times a week. This gun is amazing. The quality of the pistol is very high. The parts are very high quality. The customer service is very high. The videos are very helpful. Please make a video on the disassembly of the 13 round CR920 mag. I got a Shield RMSc red dot sight and it fit like a glove. Your Operation Manual is very informative. When I go to the gun shop now I go straight to the SS counter. I have a little over 1,000 rounds and the trigger just keeps getting better. I love the bronze barrel.
JUST A GREAT PRODUCT. KEEP IT UP.

Very nice product

Recently took the CR920 to the range to see what it would do. Was expecting some minor issues, as I had not yet went through the break in period, but no, the gun performed flawlessly. I only had one issue, and it has nothing to do with product design or functionality. I have HUGE hands, and I had a problem getting a comfortable grip on it. Let’s face it, when you have hands my size, sub-compact is not what you need to shoot. Other than that, this gun is awesome! I also have the MR920L, which is perfectly sized for me, and is another great handgun. Anytime I am at the range or gun shop, I highly recommend Shadow Systems products to other customers. Thank you for making such a wonderful line of handguns. Keep up the great work!

One of my favorite guns.

This gun fits so well in the hand thanks to the unique way they sat up the back straps they don’t just change the size but change the grip and how the gun feels meaning if you’ve ever had a handgun you’ll find a grip that’s comfortable for you. Its a nail driver right out of the box and the over all construction of the gun is one of Texas and Americans pride and love. Very happy with my gun and hope to buy a few more models down the road.

Accurate, amazing, and backed by the Best Company!

I’ve shot dozens of pistols. This is by far my favorite that I own and won’t be getting rid of it. Yes, you need to break it in with 124gr ammo, but then it becomes something amazing. If you want something that can do it all buy this pistol. It’s the perfect size, light, shoots amazing, and is the best value in the industry. The company is amazing with customer service if you have questions. Don’t hesitate if you need a do it all gun!

I have a lot of guns. I just bought the DR920 after reading the reviews and watching several videos including John Lovell’s. This is a great and accurate gun.

I am not sure on the mag release I think it would benefit from a bit more meat on it.

I have had zero issues in the first 1000 rounds down range.

Best 9M system I've ever shot

Bought the DR920 after I already purchased both MR920 variants while looking for a competition rig. The MR format was incredible, fast, compact and everything I expect with a G19 Gen5 but the DR920 gave me a slightly larger grip and better recoil control that absolutely crushed my accuracy goals.

High Performance / Outstanding Value

Went to my LGS last week to buy a G17 that I could build up as a host for a suppressor I ordered a couple months ago. Surprisingly, they didn’t have any G17s (or even a full size P320, which would have been an acceptable substitute) so I almost gave up. Sensing my disappointment, the salesman asked me how he could help. I told him what I was looking for and he suggested a DR920 with the threaded barrel. I had heard of Shadow Systems from John Lovell, but I’d personally never fired one. That being said, I’ve had several custom Glocks built for me, and they usually cost me nearly twice what the DR920 was priced at, so I figured I couldn’t lose.

I finally took it to the range yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. With the target at 6 yards, my holes were touching and I’m honestly not that great of a shooter. Even speeding up my shots, almost to what I’d consider “rapid fire”, my groups were only around 4”. I don’t know what kind of magic Shadow Systems puts in these guns, but I shot my DR920 better than I shoot my stock G17 Gen5, and I shoot that G17 a lot! Then when you consider that the DR920 comes with a threaded barrel AND an optic cut right out of the box, I think this may be the best value in handguns today!

I’m very happy with my Shadow Systems DR920, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

High Performance / Outstanding Value

Went to my LGS last week to buy a G17 that I could build up as a host for a suppressor I ordered a couple months ago. Surprisingly, they didn’t have any G17s (or even a full size P320, which would have been an acceptable substitute) so I almost gave up. Sensing my disappointment, the salesman asked me how he could help. I told him what I was looking for and he suggested a DR920 with the threaded barrel. I had heard of Shadow Systems from John Lovell, but I’d personally never fired one. That being said, I’ve had several custom Glocks built for me, and they usually cost me nearly twice what the DR920 was priced at, so I figured I couldn’t lose.

Great product

Bought the DR920 a few weeks ago, been breaking it in during this fun ammo shortage. So far so good, I have several shadow systems products and they never disappoint me, will eventually transition DR920 into a duty role

My duty pistol

I currently carry a DR920 as my duty pistol. It replaced my MR920L as my duty firearm. I was extremely pleased with my MR920L but I wanted a Glock 17 sized pistol. My DR920 is extremely soft shooting. It is extremely accurate. I have never had a malfunction. Everyone who has shot this pistol has been very impressed. I chose this pistol as my duty pistol. That’s the best recommendation I can make

Can't say enough great things about this pistol!

My Shadow Systems DR 920 has really made my range visits exciting again! I just love the way it shoots and handles. I have mine configured with standard iron sights and a compensator. It is highly accurate and follow up shots can be fired with incredible speed and precision.

Instantly this pistol has eclipsed all others for me. It’s combination of looks, performance, reliability, and value simply place it in another category.

I just love it!

So good I have two

I carried the glock series at work for 14 years and never really cared for them that much. I got medically retired and about 5 years later picked up a MR918 combat and told my friend I had to have it. I purchased it from him and fell in love with it. I carried it for about a year and it ran flawlessly. Loved it so much that I now have a MR920 combat and soon it will be my new daily carry. Love the customer service as well.

The DR920 is a great pistol!

I just picked up my DR920 this week and put 500+ rounds of various brands through it today. It worked perfectly with all the different brands I used. I shot at 5m, 10m, and 25m and the DR920 stayed on target every shot. I will highly recommend the DR920 for your next pistol purchase. It’s definitely an upgrade from whatever you are shooting or carrying now.

The Best

I purchased a MR918 Combat back in 2019 I liked it enough that I followed it up with a MR918 Elite and mounted a Trijicon RMR. I got an opportunity to put my hands on a DR920 Combat a couple weeks ago. As soon as I picked it up I knew. It fit my hand like it was meant to be there. I’ve only put 500 rounds through it since then but in my opinion the DR920 is the best out of the box defensive handgun I have ever shot. I carry it concealed on a daily basis. Great Job Guy’s!!

great pistol with excellent service

The mr920 combat is the perfect pistol to fit my needs.I purchased this solely to protect my family.I definitely don’t have the time I would like to spend on the range vs pre kids, but the way SS designed the different grips is genius.I just practice dry firing and my sights are aligned almost immediately since the grip angle fits naturally with my hands when I present the pistol, I’m already ‘zeroed in’. I have many different 9mm pistols, and I’m much slower at sight alignment with those. It’s also ridiculously light compared the others’. Their customer is so proactive! I contacted them and they ensured I was taken care of! Plus, I live in the same city and always support local business’! Thanks for providing a quality product with exceptional service!

DR920 - Noticeable improvements over the MR series

This is my third SSC handgun; also owning an MR920 and MR920L. There are marked improvements in the design here. The striker has been redesigned, a striker return assist spring has been added, and the firing system springs appear to be different. Those changes have resulted in a greatly improved trigger feel for the everyday end-user.

My use case is different. I want this to be a competition gun. All it took was a mirrored finish polishing of the trigger group’s metal contact points and a lighter weight firing pin safety spring to tune this sucker into my perfect trigger.

The ergonomics are equally as outstanding as the MR versions, which are the best in the game. The accuracy is excellent right out of the box.

The gun’s metal finish is simply outstanding. In the strangest turn of events, I was at a gravel range and a gust of wind blew my gun mat and empty DR920 off my shooting bench before I’d even had a chance to fire it for the first time. It landed in the gravel and bounced around a bit. I picked it up and, even after a 3′ drop into gravel, there wasn’t a single scratch on it.

My only complaint is that it’s difficult to find front/rear competition sight sets that are compatible with any SSC guns. I don’t run a red dot due vision astigmatism. I want a set of competition sights and there just aren’t any out there. I’m experimenting with some Ameriglo custom combos right now and having only a fair amount of luck. To be clear, there are plenty of excellent combat/duty sight sets out there which are compatible.

Yeah, that was wordy, but there’s a lot to say. Hopefully this review helps you with your decision no matter your use case. These are awesome guns and I haven’t looked back at Glock since discovering Shadow Systems.

Hemi version of a Glock

I purchased this pistol not knowing a whole lot about the company. I liked all the stippling, the weight and size and the fact it is compatible with all G19 items.
I took it to the range the day after I received it and fired the 200 break in rounds. I was made a beleiver about the MR920 shooting fast and flat.

I am always on the look out for an DR920. I carry the issued G17 at work but will switch when I am able to get a DR 920. The MR 920 is my EDC/off duty choice.
This pistol is a home run of a design and set up.

Amazing Gun with amazing looks!

I went to go buy my first striker fired pistol and everyone kept telling me to buy a Glock. I have an issue with not keeping things “basic” so I went through and priced out buying a Glock 17 with all of the upgrades I wanted for it. As I was doing that I came across the Shadow Systems small area of a case my local store and looked at the DR920 Elite which had everything I would have upgraded in the Glock 17. I instantly loved the feel and the looks and decided to buy it that day. I have never been happier with a handgun! It is my primary home defense gun as well now.

Wow

I’m going to start by saying I am not a Glock fan. My wife loves them. I preferred my CZ P10. Nothing wrong with Glocks they just don’t fit my hands well. So needless to say I wanted another polymer wonder gun! I then took a chance on a DR920 because of the reviews I’ve seen. I did not hold one first and thought man I hope I didn’t throw my money away or it’s going to go to my wife! Soon as I got it I thought wow this looks and feels incredible, I hope it shoots as good as it looks and feels. Let me tell you it did not disappoint! I think it will be my new go to and I think I’m going to sell my 365 for a cr920 next!

DR920 Elite "Perfect"

This is my personal review of the Shadow Systems DR920 Elite.
I purchased my DR920 Elite locally after watching and reading many reviews.

I work as an elected county sheriff in West Texas. My county is a border county with Mexico. It’s a tough area, sometimes remote and always “interesting”. The firearm I carry to protect me as well as others must be 100% reliable. I demand nothing less. Lives depended on it.

Being a gun-guy, I have many different pistols, to include Glocks. I’m also a Glock Armorer and enjoy working on them for myself and others. I’m also a firearms Instructor.

After purchasing my DR920 I brought it home and field stripped it, cleaned it and applied CLP as directed. Then I went to the range.

I was aware of the recommended break-in period and had recently watched the Guns America review on an MR920. So, let’s begin.

I fired a total of 400 rounds of 9mm ammo through my DR920 Elite. Everything from Federal 115gr FMJ, Blazer Brass 124gr FMJ and Hornady Critical Duty 135gr Flexlock. I used the included Magpul mags and Glock 17 mags with stock baseplates and mags with extended plus five baseplates. I was not gentle, the gun got warmed up real nice! I shot paper and steel, ran several drills in the hot West Texas sun and dirt. Result?

My DR920 Elite had ZERO malfunctions of any kind…ZERO. It functioned perfectly, was accurate, and the ergonomics far exceeded my expectations. I also brought with me a Gen 5 Glock 45, 9mm just for a little friendly competition, which, as it turned out, was no competition.

Final thoughts. I can carry whatever I want. “My” Shadow Systems DR920 Elite now rests in my duty holster and is on “Active Duty”. Saving up for another one!

Five stars!

Shadow System: Polymer Pistol finally done right

Great attention to important details as well consumer wanted details. Superior grip with the addition of being able to adjust the grip angle truly make their guns not only easier to control but also make it so for a much broader range of shooters. not to mention the superior grip texture and slide cuts, as well as by far the best “from the factory” optics system. Perhaps better than all that, is the attention they seem to pay to their consumers, whether it be to improve on certain features or add certain features. I can’t say enough good things about shadow systems thus far, I like them so much so that I currently own 3 and will probably be adding a 4th soon. My only hopes are, as they continue to grow, they keep up the fantastic customer service, and I’m hoping that in the near future they add a G43X sized model to the line up, or at least something in a subcompact model.

Recently acquired the Shadow Systems DR920 Elite. Put the first 100 through it and it ran like expected. Also put a couple hundred through my MR920 Elite and my War Poet MR920. They all worked great. I am looking forward to see what the future holds for Shadow Systems.

Best there is!

I daily carry an MR920 Combat with a TLR7a, backup is a MR920L Elite and my newest full size is the DR920 Elite, these guns have all performed flawlessly and have protected my family since the release of the MR920.

The ergonomics and overall weight,comfort and accuracy cant be matched unless your willing to drop another $1,000+ into any other handgun.

AMAZING SHOOTER!!

I’ve owned several custom glocks and fully built Glock based platform pistols by various manufacturers over the years. I can honestly say that this is hands down my favorite shooter out of ever one I’ve owned. Shoots supper flat! Extremely accurate, and just plain fun to shoot. On top of outstanding products, their customer service is a thousand times better than ANY brand firearm manufacturer I’ve ever dealt with. Very prompt and personal service. I felt like all my questions were always answers very quickly and like I was talking to a friend on the other end of the line. Not just a client. I plan on doing much more business with them in the future! A++++

I’ve had this dr920 elite for a month now and it’s run flawlessly with 500rds so far. I really like how you can get such a capable pistol for less than upgrading a stock glock.

I do not often leave reviews but must say how pleased I am with this pistol. Brought it home disassembled and cleaned put around 250 rounds thru it. All I can say is WOW!!! Fells great shoots great. Love the sights and trigger pull and basically everything about it! Have a farm made my own range paper and steel targets. At 25 yds I was making that dueling tree steel targets dance. I am not that good a shot 63 years old LOL must be the pistol. My new favorite. Thanks for a great product plus American made big plus for me

Good company

I’ll try to be as unbiased as possible. I bought a DR920 Elite. For the first 1000 rounds it worked flawlessly. After 1000 rounds I had 3-5 “Failure to reset” the TRIGGER per 100 rounds up to 1300 rounds. At the first 7 failures to reset I stopped shooting it. Called Shadow Systems and they sent me a new Trigger. I was happy they sent me one to replace! But! The same problem happened. Shot a few hundred more and more failures to reset. I sent it in for warranty work (quick turn around- approx a week) to which the only service done was putting a new trigger on it and sending it back. They assured me they test fired it and it didn’t have any problems. I asked if they would re run the measurements (slide, firing pin, etc) but they didn’t. I then took it to the range for testing again just to have MORE FAILURES TO RESET. I sent videos with proof of it happening. This time it was 4-5 times per 50 rounds. I was sent another shipping label to send it in again. ( this here is my own ego ) – I went and bought another gun to EDC, threw my $1000 gun in my safe out of frustration where it will sit forever. If I can’t trust my sidekick I don’t trust it in anyone else’s hands. Maybe I got a wild flyer gun. A fluke or something crazy abnormal.

The staff (Josh) who I worked with was great! And easy to work with. It most likely was not his fault for not having it checked out completely while it was there for warranty work.

DR920 Elite Review

The reliability and performance on the DR920 has been top tier. The ergonomics, barrel/slide fit, and trigger promote excellent accuracy and follow-up shot consistency. The DR920 points naturally and the lightweight slide on the Elite allows for great recoil control, with quick Dot re-acquisition on RDS Equipped guns. I have been very impressed, and the look on everyone else’s face when they grab it says it all. Awe followed by Jealousy. Great product, keep it up!

Quality is far superior than the standard Glock. Fit and feel is amazing. Love the serrations and slide cuts. Only real issue is on the frame, the gas pedal feature adds some extra material to where the gun is not a clean fit in my G17 holsters.

Great Gun

I bought a DR920 in June. It was my first gun purchase ever. It is a great gun. I thought it was going to take a while to get better but with this gun in only a few weeks I am shooting like a seasoned veteran shooter. A few guys that work at the range have tried it and when they shoot it their eyes light up. They all carry Glocks and everyone one of them say this is a great shooting gun. They love it. I am very happy i bought a shadow system and not a glock. Glocks are great guns but this is a step up.

This is my 1st Shadow Systems handgun and after shooting it…….it won’t be my last!

I don’t have many what I consider higher end handguns, but this purchase may just push me over that line. Fit and finish are awesome. Weight is great. Balance is just about perfect.
I’m new to Shadow Systems and hadn’t heard much about them prior, but the fact that a handgun of this style, design and quality is made right here in the good ole USA just sealed the deal for me.
Next on the horizon will be the MR920 elite.
Thanks guys for a great 1st purchase from your company

I love these guns. I own a War Piet and a MR920 elite. I’ve run 2k to 3k rounds through my guns a month and I’ve never had a failure. The break in period is very important with these guns but again no failures at all while firing. Thank you Shadow Systems. Great product!

DR920 Elite

Well I was looking for a “workin gun” for some time , 2 years… and finally stoped at Ss920 , let me tell you that it was the Best feet for me out of many, and more expensive guns.

I followed the break in process with 0 problems, and at about 1000 round s I got a new Glock magazine, at that point I dataset having FTF problems etc, After call to SS support they suggested to check on the MAG , and what you know… Glock mag had a follower problem. Replaced it with a new Meg and 0 problems after 2-3k rounds in r weeks.

I love the accuracy of the SS920 super flat , fast and low recoil.

P.S this is my EDC and now I trust it for its purpose.

Great pistol great company and really good people

I recently purchased my second Shadow Systems DR920, one is the Elite model the other a Warrior Poet Society edition and all I can say is what a great pistol. In addition to being an incredible weapons platform Shadow Systems has proven to be customer centric. When I bought my first DR920 it unfortunately shipped with 2 of the back straps for the compact model. All it took was one phone call, answered on the second ring I might add, and in no time at all I had said back straps in hand. Then today 9/20/21 while at my local LGS I happened to run into two of Shadow Systems reps in the parking lot, what a great couple of guys. After a really nice conversation the guys were kind enough to hook me up with some moral patches, stickers and a pen. Like I said in the subject line great pistol great company and good really good people. I’ve owned and carried glocks for over 20 years and can confidently say Shadow Systems has not only raised the bar they have brought to market a weapons platform I trust my life and those I love and care for with thank you Shadow Systems

Respect the break in period

DR920 elite non-threaded barrel in black – all the good stuff you expect. The backstrap and magwell system is easy to swap and works. Zeroed the red dot @15 yards and found the gun very accurate.

My break in period consisted of the slide locking open after each shot for 2 mags. In fact I thought the Pmag Shadow Systems included may have been the issue so I swapped to a Glock mag, same issue. Popped out the pin and slide stop, quick inspection then put it back and got 2 consecutive rounds to fire. Third mag got longer strings, by the end of the fourth mag issue was resolved.

I was pretty nervous as locking the slide after every round seems like a steep break in. After 50 rounds that issue is gone. Approximately 160 rounds fired today, I’ll runt at least 100 through it next week to check again. Otherwise great gun.

Lots of Hype | Honestly Kind of Disappointing

Before I get slammed here.
I want to validate what I am saying.
I thought it would shoot well and it does.

It shoots better than a stock Glock but there is thing kind of thing sound when pulling the trigger I don’t care for like the sound is resonating inside the gun some where you pull the trigger.

Even Gucci Glock triggers are still crunchy Glock garbage just lighter and slightly smoother to the break.
That break is crunchy in Gucci and regular Glocks.
I just hate it.

The gun just feels to light and not solid.
It shoots well and is accurate.
The flattest gun on the market, thats a joke.

Look at other guns like any staccato P my Walther SF 4 inch and 5 inch.
My Zev 0z9
Any CZ 75 variant, the sig P210.
These are all another 200 to 1500 extra sure but they are way better and flatter guns.

You spend over $1000 for a gun thats worth in value $700.
I just cannot justify this when there are so many other better choices.

The Zev 0z9 eats this thing for lunch in every single way for another $500 or so.
Wouldn’t you rather pay another $500 and get the best version of a Gucci Glock there is, I would.

Even better than the Zev both Walther Steel Frames shoot unbelievably flat and the trigger is the best you can really get for striker fired.

Walther today is probably making the best value Guns for the the Money you spend today.
Meaning for every dollar you spend at Walther they give you tons of Value.
Sig is probably a close second for me.

Staccato is a great Gun but expensive so the gun is great but the value is not.

CZ 75 anyone variant same as Walther unbelievable value for the Money you spend there.

You want people to buy your shadow guns okay then build a better gun or lower the price and people will stop criticizing you.

I feel like I got took for $300 dollars essentially.

The barrel is great, the optics system is a really neat touch.
The trigger well we don’t want to go there.
The slide does not have near that premium feel that zev does.

The frame meh it feels like every Gucci Glock frame.
Credit for the original back strap system however.

Zev is the bar in the Gucci Glock world for a stock gun, it just is..

Very impressed with everything on this system. All the craftsmanship really shows and it’s very impressive. Shot countless rounds through all sorts of glocks and with out a doubt, this one takes the cake. Can’t wait to purchase another. Solid work guys!

Love this company and their guns

I own several guns, I had to use Glock for duty and always had a love hate relationship with Glock. Just by chance I discovered Shadow Systems and immediately love to shoot this gun. I own several of their guns and love each and every one. I ordered a few direct and always have had a great experience. The staff are fantastic and excel in customer service.

Not what I was hoping for

Let me start off by saying I own 4 shadow systems pistols and all of them have been flat shooting, reliable and quality firearms.
This DR920P however is just a problem.
Even after the break in period, I had nose up Jams on the initial feed.
After trying the 15 pound spring the feed issues went away..but now it’s constant double feeds and the occasional stovepipe.
I’m running high quality 124g full power loads and no I am not limp wristing the firearm.
Working with customer support, but as of right now this firearm is unusable.

MR918

Couldn’t ask for a more epic EDC weapon! I’ve carried this everyday, everywhere since I purchased it last year. Can’t beat the options, accuracy, or price. Highly recommend to all!

Shadow Systems MR918 ELITE Checks all the boxes.

Let me start by saying I have been a avid shooter and collector of firearms for almost 40 years mainly concentrating on the 1911 format. After many years of lugging around a full size steel 5″ 45acp I decided to start looking for a lighter polymer EDC that checked all the boxes for my needs. I currently own several from Springfield, Smith and Wesson, Glock and CZ. While they are all great firearms they were lacking in certain areas. While shopping for new pistol at my local shop I noticed the MR918 in the case after about 30 seconds in my hand it just felt right. So it and a Trijicon RMR came home with me that day. The MR918 is on my hip all day everyday the fit form and function of this pistol is everything I was looking for. Currently I have about 1500 rounds through her without one non ammo related stoppage. One a side note she is a beautiful firearm. Looking forward to picking up the MR920 soon. Great job Shadow Systems! I am a fan.

I have had my 918 for over 2 years and had no problems with it. It has a nice balance and it is fun to shoot.

Best not a glock

This is one of the best not a glock glocks I’ve ever picked up and shot. Runs flawless and has all the perks of a customized gun. Love mine and recommend to everyone that asks is that a glock 19??

Couldn't get much better!!

I bought my MR918 in as new condition for the original owner who needed the money – I’ve not shot it a lot but of all the GLOCKS I won and have owned this is the most accurate and best shooting gun I own!! I only wish I could afford another one!!!! IMHO if you can only own one pistol one of the SHADOW SYSTEM guns is the one to own!!!!

Such A Flat Shooter

After I purchased my MR918 Elite, had to reteach myself how to shoot again because of how well balanced this pistol is. With my Sig, I would have to compensate my aim and shots due to the weight and high bore axis. The MR918, on the other hand, has none of these issues. It’s such a pleasure to shoot. The quality and craftsmanship of the piece is exquisite. It’s my everyday carry and worth every penny I spent on it. Customer service was amazing with me also. Thank you again, I cannot tell you how great this pistol is!

Reigning Champion

So far this is the best bang for the buck on the market. I LOVE the interchangeable grip system because I’ve got a G19 size pistol with a G17 grip, without the discomfort of either ones trigger guard. One of the best triggers out of the box with great sights that cowitness perfectly with my 507 (lower 1/4ish). they don’t obscure my picture through the red dot or draw my attention away from it like so many others I’ve seen. It’s accurate and reliable as the day is long. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up a DR20 if I had the cheddar.

Phenomenal pistol

I’ve had my MR918 Elite for over a year now and it’s the only gun I shoot every time I go to the range. I’ve topped it with an Trijicon RMR2. The gun has been 100% reliable, shooting both factory target ammo and Federal HST as my self defense round. Easy to break down and clean, this is my go-to home defense gun, and all around range gun.

Amazing Pistol

The build quality on my Shadow Systems is amazing. From the grip texture to undercuts, it fits my hand perfectly. The quality of the barrel and slide really set it apart from any of the CZ or Sig pistols I own. This is my new favorite pistol!

Amazing

THe MR918 is just an amazing gun, I honestly sold all my Glocks and now only have a MR918 and MR920L. Highly recommend a Shadow Systems. They are everything you could need in a 9mm handgun! Get one you will not regret it!

Great package

Overall I am very pleased with my pistol. I caught interest in shadow systems after originally liking glocks, but wanting to upgrade the sights among other things right away. In comes the MR918. I purchased my MR918 at a local gun store after the MR920 was already out. I believe I got the best “Glock” out of the box that is possible for this price point. Taking a stock Glock and making it like this pistol would cost a lot more. Great gun, this is my main side arm.

Amazing gun!

My MR918 simply amazing. It shoots flat, feels very precise and is the best shooting out-of-the-box pistol under $1000 on the market. Bar none. I’ve put around 300 rounds through this baby with zero issues. The trigger is very tactile and has a smooth pull with a very satisfying reset. Target acquisition is simple with the bright forward sight. The included options for changing out the backstrap gives you a nice custom feel for shooters of any other style weapon. The magwell option makes reloads a breeze and can make anyone feel like John Wick. All in all, this pistol is worth every penny and then some.

Best Glock replacement pistol after some initial problems were corrected

Pistol was recieved brand new with a broken firing pin/striker assembly (tip of striker was completely missing) and would not fire out of the box. Contacted Shadow Systems about the issue and they fixed the problem promptly with a new striker assembly, but this issue was very disconcerting considering the pistol arrived to me out of the box in non-working condition.

Fit, finish, quality and lock up of pistol is very nice. Grip texture is almost perfect. Trigger is very nice. Sights are amazing. Optional magazine well is a nice added option, but may be a bit delicate for hard tactical/combat use as it may break away from the grip if stuck on the front lip at an upward angle. Magazines are Magpul and are all garbage. Bad followers, no witness holes, but pistol will work with ETS and factory Glock magazines so I replaced them all immediately. Gun is extremely accurate and recoil is very light with good controllability for fast follow up shots. Pistol works with all of my Glock holsters from JM Custom and Blackpoint Tactical. Overall, pistol is much better than a stock Glock and is comparable to custom Glocks costing much more. Pistol has since been discontinued and is no longer available which I feel was a terrible move on the part of Shadow Systems as this is a very nice gun that I feel is actually nicer than the new replacement MR920 model. Time/use will tell, but so far this is a very nice Glock replacement pistol that is better than any Glock I have ever owned-shame that it’s no longer obtainable…

Best Bang for your Buck

Being stuck in Canada, we don’t have many options for firearms and what we do get sells out very quickly. That said, I am new to shooting at the ripe age of 47 and have jumped in with both feet. I have tried every single pistol I could get my hands on and purchased those that were available (and that I could afford). I can say that the way Shadow Systems approaches the design of their firearms truly reflects what shooters (especially new shooters) should be looking for in a pistol. Familiar lines coupled with tweaks that appear to be cosmetic but suddenly become essential as soon as you pick it up. The feel in the hand is unlike most others in the market and the ability to EASILY change back straps is awesome. Light, small and instinctively controllable , the MR918 is an absolute dream. As soon as you start learning about trigger control, reset and grip, everything about this pistol helps you understand these concepts immediately. Although not inexpensive, the MR918 is far above their competition in the under $1500 (CDN) range. Just shooting it has improved my shooting on all my other pistols! Keep up the good work!

I love shooting this gun.

I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. After installing a hollow sun red dot, and a compensator, we took this gun to the range to run a few hundred rounds through it. I was shooting it back to back with my friends Glock 34, and I have to say we both enjoyed shooting this gun. My next gun purchase will definitely be another Shadow systems. Way to go guys.

Bougie on a budget

Have you ever owned a Glock and then saw those Instagram gun guys with those gnarly customized Glocks that cost them $1,500+ and envied them? Yeah, me neither because that’s a lot of money for plastic. Enter Shadow Systems. You get all the better ergos of a custom Glock and the reliability of a stock Glock for half the price of the big names.
