Shadow Systems XR920 Crossover 9mm Pistol: First Look

Chambered in 9mm, the Shadow Systems XR920 crossover pistol 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. View the full lineup at: shadowsystemscorp.com
