During Shot Show, Shadow System announced the release of two new pistols that would be joining their portfolio, the DR920P and CR920. The DR920P will be Shadow Systems first foray into a performance pistol market. While the CR920 is the company’s first foray into the subcompact market as well. Let’s take a deep look into Shadow Systems two new handgun offerings.
Shadow Systems DR920P
First, let’s start off with Shadow Systems DR920P. The DR920P is a full size pistol with an integrated compensator. The built-in compensator does not make use of a threaded barrel, which makes it compliant in states that don’t allow threaded barrels for pistols.
The DR920P is built on Shadow Systems’ full size frame architecture, giving you a 17+1 capacity. The comp and slide are machined and fitted together to give a seamless monolithic appearance. The integrated comp allows for easy attachment and detachment without the need of a threaded barrel, set screws or other friction devices. The DR920P’s front sight is mounted directly to the comp, for faster follow-up shots.
The DR920P features: front and rear cocking serrations, a weight optimizing window cut, a spiral fluted match-grade barrel, a flat face trigger, comes optics ready, with adjustable back straps. The DR920P is also compatible with current Glock 34 holsters, which is a big win for consumers. The DR920P joins Shadow Systems popular full size pistol lineup, now built with performance in mind.

Shadow Systems CR920
Next, up to bat we have Shadow Systems CR920. The CR920 is the company’s first foray into the subcompact genre. This subcompact by Shadow Systems was engineered to be a subcompact that shoots like a full-size from the start.
Shadow Systems pistol lineup has a handgun for everyone: the full size DR920, the compact MR920, and two crossover offerings the MR920L and XR920. Now, Shadow Systems has added to that lineup with the CR920. The “CR” in the name stands for Covert Role. A subcompact pistol has been a highly requested model by Shadow Systems customers.
When it came down to design Shadow Systems engineers where tasked with creating a subcompact that shot like a full-size. That is a delicate balancing act for any engineer. Most subcompact pistols are not shooter friendly in terms of recoil. That is an afterthought due to its size and weight constraints. Shadow System believes they have accomplished this balance with the CR920.
Just like all other Shadow System pistols the CR920 is a feature rich pistol. The CR920 features: front, rear, and top slide serrations(Elite Models Only), fluted match-grade barrel, steels sights (w/tritium front sight), optics ready slide, and a flat face trigger. The pistol also features 13+1 and 10+1 magazine capacity, with the 13-round magazine having a extended baseplate.
The CR920 is Shadow Systems first strong step into the subcompact market. The new pistol from Shadow System will be available in Combat, Combat Optic, and Elite models, starting at $679 MSRP.
At the end of the day Shadow Systems has created two well built pistols in the DR920P and CR920. These pistols only help grow brand Recognition for Shadow Systems and further flesh out their great portfolio.
