Shadow Systems announced on Monday the release of their XR920. They call it their crossover pistol and it features a full-size frame with a compact-length slide while still packing a full 17+1 capacity.
About the XR920
Born out of a custom request for Law Enforcement, the new XR920 is the crossover pistol that is quicker out of the holster with a full 17+1 capacity. Featuring the customizable ergonomics and unmatched recoil control you expect from a Shadow Systems pistol, the XR920 is mission ready.
The XR920 frame features interchangeable backstraps to allow a shooter to adjust the grip angle to fit their natural point of aim. The extended beavertail and aggressive trigger guard undercut provide unmatched recoil control, allowing quick, accurate follow-up shots. The frame’s wrap-around grip texture is aggressive enough to keep the gun firmly in the shooter’s grip without being uncomfortable for daily wear.
The XR920 slide is designed for manipulation under stress, with directional serrations in the front and rear (as well as topside on some models) and a thinned profile at grasping locations. The match-grade barrel is conventionally rifled, spiral-fluted, and available threaded or unthreaded. The drop-safe, flat-faced aluminum trigger has a 4.5-5.0 lbs trigger pull and a crisp, tactile reset.
The patented optic cut allows shooters to mount a mini red dot optic of their choosing. The optic cut on the XR920 can accommodate most major brands of RDS optics directly mounted to the slide, without intervening plates or adapters. Whether your pistol is your nightstand security blanket or your daily duty partner, there is a Shadow Systems pistol to fit the role. The XR920 is a perfect blend of the MR920 and DR920.
Two models are available, the Combat and the Elite. Shadow Systems says the “difference between these two models is in the slide features.” They have a great comparison chart available on their website.
