The MR920L Elite is long slide version of the MR920 Elite. With the MR920L, you get the concealability of a compact frame with the long sight radius of a full size slide. The MR920L was conceived as the true answer to the question of “How do I get more capability out of my pistol and still conceal it daily?”  More Capability:  The MR920L and its shorter barrel length cousin, the MR920 Elite, both offer an incredibly high degree of mechanical accuracy.  The MR920L however makes it easier to use that mechanical accuracy with an increase in sight radius of ½”.  That may not seem like a lot, but it is more than enough to notice by an experienced shooter.  The MR920L also features significantly less upward snap than the MR920 Elite.  There was noticeably less felt recoil under test conditions using the same ammunition and the same shooter, fired consecutively.  Both of those benefits can be had in a pistol that is just as easily hidden as the MR920 Elite.

The MR920L is built on the MR920 compact frame, designed for optimal recoil control and improved ergonomic fit. The frame features interchangeable backstraps to fit your natural point of aim, a recoil control ledge, and a tapered, elongated beavertail. The MR920 frame is textured in a way that is aggressive without being uncomfortable for daily carry. The optional magwell can be added to the frame for faster reloads, making the MR920L an excellent choice for competition pistols; the MR920L is approved for use in USPSA Production, USPSA Carry Optics, IDPA Stock Service Pistol, and IDPA Carry Optic divisions.

The full length slide features directional serrations in the front, rear, and topside of the slide alongside recoil-reducing, weight-optimized window cut. The patent-pending optic cut on the MR920L allows a low, direct mount for multiple footprints to accommodate most major optic brands. The optic cut features:

  • The strongest, deepest screw placement in the industry
  • Direct optic mounting of multiple brands without intervening adapter plates
  • Extremely low optic placement permitting most optics to co-witness with typical iron sights

No past optic cut designs have combined all three of these game-changing attributes. The MR920 optic cut accommodates Trijicon RMR and SRO, Holosun 507c and 508t, Leupold Deltapoint Pro, Vortex Viper, and TruGlo Tru-Tec. Because the MR920 is a Universal Optic Mount Pistol, it will likely accommodate additional brands and optics; testing for optic compatibility is still ongoing. The new system provides versatility without compromise and even exceeds the strength of past Shadow Systems mounts that had a dedicated Trijicon RMR footprint machined into the slide.

 

The slide and barrel are machined right here in Plano, Texas.  Barrels are 1-10″ conventionally rifled 416R stainless steel.  Our barrels are coated in super hard Bronze Titanium Carbo-nitride or Black Nitride.  Slides are machined from 17-4 PH stainless steel and coated in Nitride. The MR920L can be configured with a 4.5″ unthreaded barrel or a 5″ threaded barrel.

The MR920L unthreaded features a 4.5” barrel and corresponding length slide.  A MR920L with a threaded barrel features an additional ½” of barrel but the same slide length.  So when looking for holsters look for ones compatible with G17-length guns and don’t forget to check for compatibility with your threaded barrel. If you need assistance in looking for a compatible holster feel free to email us at support@shadowsystemscorp.com.

Our triggers are improved over a stock trigger, but leave internal safeties fully intact and use stock weight springs. You can expect smooth take-up and a super crisp break at 4.0-4.5 lbs.

If you have more questions about the MR920L, please contact our staff at (469) 458-6808.

Perfect

Amazing gun. Fit and finish is excellent, rmr mounting is rock solid, excellent trigger, love everything about it. No issues with the gun at all, only issue is that I sent a question about barrels thru the website 2 weeks ago and still have not heard back. People are busy, I get it, but 2 weeks seems excessive.

A phenomenal product and shooting experience!

This firearm is top notch. I have owned and shot many pistols over the years. This gun hands down is one of the best. Lightweight,versatile,
Tight, accurate. These are just a few words that come to mind when handling this firearm. I am thoroughly impressed with the firearm and the company. If you are on the fence about purchasing, do it, you will not regret it.

Accurate

… as hell. The only issue my hands are big… long thin fingers, the very bottom of the grip… the tinge of flare… or the lip… something makes me think for a second… it damn it shoots great. Accurate as hell.

I’m glad folks like this are around. I love my Glocks… wait I am losses this folks are around because I have to buy more weapons to compare!

But then I am HAPPY AF as it is a nice challenge to plow your way through this.

Thanks shadow systems. DR 920 next.

G45 type would be great.

love it so much I sold it

I bought a MR920L to compete with and the bore axis was so low that I get almost no muzzle rise. My second shot in my controlled pairs is instantaneous and creates a ragged hole. I’ve had it for 3 months and found out the DR920 was coming out so I’ll upgrade to the full size grip module and TB. When will I see a 5″ slide come out?

Amazing !!!

What else can I say, This gun is great. I put a SRO on mine, It was super simple to install. I can’t imagine the need to change anything, it is already done. This gun fits my hands so well that it makes all my other pistols feel inferior. This is the best firearm purchase I have made.

It'll change your life

My MR920L is the most fun and comfortable firearm I have shot! Having little hands, its tough to pull a firearm out of the box and it be comfortable, that was not the case with my 920L. It has fit like a glove since day one, and I love how it feels in my hands!
It is also one of the most durable firearms I have shot, no matter the condition it will preform its best.
I am confident every time I pull the trigger, I love my MR920L!

Better than Glock

I have been a Glock fanatic ever since day one! I have been wanting to experience with something similar, yet new to me. I picked up a Shadow Systems MR920L Elite and I feel like I never put it down! The smoothness of the trigger, the flat shooting trajectory, and not to mention, the sleek and beautiful look of the pistol. I have put my glocks to the side and I currently only wear my SS Mr920L on my hip while working! Great pistol and great company!

Could not be happier!

As an avid pistol shooter I was somehow never bitten by the Glock style bug… that’s until I shot a friend’s MR918. The next day day I went out and purchased a MR920 Elite. Then that purchased was followed by a MR920L and a DR920 Elite. Clearly I’m sold. I can whole heartedly say I would trust my life to any of the three pistols and I believe that’s the biggest endorsement someone can give a gun. As much as I’m looking forward to your future releases, I’m sure my bank account is not. Keep on making stellar products…

Who Could Ask For Anything More?

Yes, I am one of those 8 million news gun owners so I apologize in advance for crowding your hobby and contributing to the ammo shortage.

When I finally decided to use my stimulus money to buy a 9mm handgun (lol) I consulted a trusted friend who is both a retired Marine and an avid shooter. He immediately said that a Shadow Systems handgun would be the best possible option for a beginner for reasons that I couldn’t even appreciate at the time. Man was he right! This gun is awesome looking, tricked out in all the right places, flat shooting, and optic ready with the best mounting system on the market… so I say again, who could ask for anything more?

Awesome Pistol and fantastic customer service

This pistol is amazing. The optic mounting system blows away that MOS system by a big competitor. The grip texture is sweet! The trigger is a little lacking, but nothing Johnny Glock can’t fix. Threaded barrel is really nice. I can’t really think why anyone would buy any other striker fired pistol when Shadow Systems makes such a sweet product for a reasonable price. Only upgrade I did was a flat faced trigger shoe as mentioned. Otherwise the gun is super! And my local gun shop owner also bought the same pistol for his Christmas present.

Straight shooter

I’ve ran my 920L elite and it’s holding up well. I don’t baby my tools by any means. I’ve taken it through some pretty good beatings and it’s held up very well. The accuracy is good so as long as you do your part. The sights and the balance of the pistol make for an easy point and shoot followed along with good follow up shots when shooting multiple strings of fire.

I’ve been training and competing with a staccato p 2011 for the last year, prior to running the 920L, and the weight of the pistol (2011) makes for a good balance and follow up shots along with return back to original point of aim. Although the 920L isn’t made with the same material as the staccato p, the balance and the follow up shots are comparable. It is much lighter than the staccato p and it’s a fast gun if you want it to be. I know the 920L is not a direct apples to apples comparison to the staccato p but it’s what I’ve been training with so I’m giving my feedback as a user of both guns.

If you’re looking for a good running “Glock” platform or wanting that Gucci Glock, the 920L elite is the way to go. Highly recommend.

Absolutely love it

Best shooting gun I own. I’m normally a Sig or.Kimber guy but I’ll never buy another. Fit and feel is incredible. Flat shooting and recoil manageable. Took it to my range with some.of the Glovk guys and they fell in love with it. The only bad thing I can say about the MR920L is I only have 1 of them.

Amazing straight shooter

MR920L is my favorite pistol and not being as an experienced shooter I found it easy to become familiar with safely and shoot without fear of the kick. The special cuts on the rail makes it easy to pullback without slippage. I bought a MR920Elie too but the MR920L is my go to. Thanks for making gun ownership such a pleasure and prize

Quite the pleasure to fire.

I enjoy my time out at the range popping off a few rounds. Fires quite flat and the recoil isn’t to much to handle for most.

Review of MR920L Elite

Bottom line is the MR 920 elite is my new favorite pistol. I have shot Glocks, M&Ps, and Sigs for 20 years and the Shadow Systems is the best out of the box pistol I have ever owned. This gun is not perfect but it is as close as I have encountered for Glock shooters. You will not be disappointed in this gun! I have only put a few hundred rounds through it but I look forward to many more enjoyable range sessions with this premium pistol.

Review of MR920L Elite

I just purchased the MR920L and I could be happier. The ease of operation, the ergonomics, the easy of assembly and reassembly sold me on it. The ready made patented recessed are for optics being predrilled and fitting most optics was a sure deal. Salute to an innovative American Company going ahead of the crowd.

Review of MR920L Elite

Call me lucky. I was on a local gun shop tour and fate stepped in when I met a MR920L sitting in the case among hundreds of pistols and rifles. From the moment I picked it up, I knew it was coming home with me. I own just about every brand and type of duty and service pistol over the past 30 years of shooting and carrying firearms and without question shadow systems has done all of the heavy lifting for you. Nothing was left off the table in terms of ergonomics, build quality, esthetics, and inspired design. Everything has been perfected right out of the box. Amazingly light, beautifully machined, and perhaps the best shooting pistol I’ve ever owned. Gives dedicated target pistols a run for their money in a no compromise duty and edc friendly package . Once more, the MR series really shows you just how much the big industry players have been sleeping behind the wheel when a product like the MR is pushing us all forward into the future. Keep up the good work Shadow Systems and thanks for shaking things up in the industry.
