Plano, TX (November 23, 2021) Born out of a custom request for Law Enforcement, the new Shadow Systems XR920 is the most anticipated crossover pistol to hit the market. Utilizing a compact length slide that is quicker out of the holster, a full 17+1 capacity frame, and the customizable ergonomics and unmatched recoil control you expect from a Shadow Systems pistol, the XR920 is mission ready and available at retail now.
Chambered in 9mm, the XR920 crossover features a compact slide machined from 17-4 stainless steel and showcases two distinct styles – Combat and Elite. The entry-level Combat features directional left and right-side serrations located at the front and rear of the slide. Elite models feature the same directional serrations as a Combat, plus additional topside serrations and a weight-optimizing window cut that visually differentiates the Elite slide from the Combat slide. The patented Optic Cut comes standard on both the Elite and Combat XR920 slides, providing the strongest, lowest, multi-footprint optics mounting system on the market today. The match grade, stainless steel spiral fluted barrel is available in a threaded or unthreaded option and finished in a black nitride or bronze Titanium Carbonitride.
The XR920’s polymer frame delivers ergonomics designed to make you faster on target, aggressive grip texture, and an extended beavertail that positions the pistol ultra-low in the shooter’s hand and eliminates the dreaded slide bite. A recoil thumb ledge assists in reducing muzzle flip and enhances the controllability of the pistol, allowing shooters to remain on target and increase their accuracy on follow-up shots. Like all Shadow Systems pistols, the XR920 includes the unique Natural Point-of-Aim (NPOA) backstraps. These backstraps allow individuals to match the way the muzzle points to their natural point of aim. No longer limited to small, medium or large, shooters instead choose between low (1911-style), neutral (similar to many models on the market) and high (for a higher muzzle orientation).
The complete Shadow Systems family of pistols provides a solution for any situation. The full-size DR920 is appropriate for duty use, home defense and competition. The compact multi-role MR920 and MR920L are well-suited to a multitude of uses, particularly concealed carry.
Whether your pistol is your nightstand security blanket or your daily duty partner, there is a Shadow Systems pistol to fit the role. Explore the full lineup at https://www.shadowsystemscorp.com/

which pistols are California compliant?
Unfortunately, with California laws, our guns are only available to law enforcement.
So none of your guns are California compliant for civilians?
Unfortunately, no. The way that California law is written is actually a quite clever way of banning any guns made after 2003–they require micro-stamping technology to be available on any new guns added to the registry. This technology does not exist in a meaningful way, so the CA registry law has effectively banned the introduction of new pistols to the state.
Can you tell me what is on the slide behind the RMR to take up the gap ?
Our pistols ship with spacers to be used to fill the gap. You can find the chart for which spacer to use here: https://shadowsystemscorp.com/opticcut/
What kind of ammo would you recommend for the XR920?
We recommend using high quality factory ammunition. Your pistol is designed for use with +P ammunition, but do not use ammunition marketed as +P+ as there is no SAAMI designation for +P+. Budget priced and/or reloaded ammunition can suffer from quality control issues and result in degraded performance and reliability. If you are trying to achieve maximum accuracy, it is beneficial to test different types of ammunition (manufacturer, bullet weight, etc.) as your Shadow Systems pistol may prefer some loads over others.
