Nothing great can be built without a solid foundation. The Shadow Systems® MR920 Foundation Series Compact Semi-Auto Pistol was developed out of conversations with old-school gun guys; the types who aren’t fussy about aesthetics and only want the essential features. Built on the same quality frames as all Shadow Systems pistols, the Foundation Series touts sleek ergonomics, real-world shootability, and bet-your-life reliability at a lower price.
The Foundation Series is built on Shadow Systems’ world-class frame. The MR920 compact features an optimized wrap-around texture giving supreme control during strings of fire without wearing uncomfortably against the body when concealed. Featuring 3 interchangeable backstraps that change the angle of the bore, the Shadow Systems frame can be tailored to the shooter’s natural point of aim. Deep-cut thumb slats above the trigger guard provide greater control with a modern thumbs-forward shooting grip. Lastly, the gently extended and upswept beavertail prevents slide bite without being oversized and in the way of a truly-rapid draw stroke. Foundation Series XR920 pistols feature a compact nitride slide with angled pocket-cut serrations.
All Foundation Series pistols come equipped with the patented Shadow Systems multi-footprint optic cut, allowing for a direct mount of most major optic brands with the longest and strongest screws in the industry. Shadow Systems adds steel sights to the slide with a plain black serrated rear and white dot front which afford a lower 1/3 cowitness with most optics. The match-grade, nitride barrel is rated for +P ammo. Internals include a carbon steel guide rod and a drop-safe polymer trigger. The trigger has a 4.5-5.0 pound trigger pull with a crisp, tactile reset. Foundation Series pistols ship with 2 Magpul magazines. All Shadow Systems pistols are backed with the Shadow Systems Limited Lifetime Warranty.
