Shadow Systems MR920 Elite Slide, Bronze Spiral Barrel, 9mm - BLK
The lightweight & low recoil MR920 Elite took its inspiration from its predecessor, the MR918 Elite. The DNA of the pistol is the same as the MR918, but there have been some significant changes to the features and functions which make this pistol work for more people.
The MR920 features Shadow Systems’ new patent-pending optic mounting system.
The biggest news in this release is our new patent-pending universal optic mount cut. By redesigning internal slide components, we relocated portions of the operating system allowing three key attributes:
No past designs have combined all three of these game-changing attributes. The MR920 optic cut accommodates Trijicon RMR and SRO, Holosun 507c and 508t, Leupold Deltapoint Pro, Vortex Viper, and TruGlo Tru-Tec.
Because the MR920 is a Universal Optic Mount Pistol, it will likely accommodate additional brands and optics; testing for optic compatibility is still ongoing. The new system provides versatility without compromise and even exceeds the strength of past Shadow Systems mounts that had a dedicated Trijicon RMR footprint machined into the slide.
The slide and barrel are machined in-house in Plano, TX. Barrels are 1-10″ conventionally rifled 416R stainless steel. Our barrels are coated in super hard Bronze Titanium Carbo-nitride or Black Nitride. Slides are machined from 17-4 PH stainless steel and coated in Nitride.
Slides feature front and rear directional serrations. Elite models also feature window cuts, top serrations, and additional slide machining. These serrations provide excellent traction when manipulating the slide, but are relatively frictionless when drawing the pistol from a holster. The MR920 features deeply recessed front serrations and corner chamfers. This thinned front profile gives greater control and reduces the difficulty of inserting the pistol into a holster, particularly a partially collapsed IWB holster.
Our pistols are built for reliability and performance first. We added the universal optic mount feature to the MR920 to make your life easier. Our triggers are improved over a stock trigger, but leave internal safeties fully intact and use stock weight springs. You can expect smooth take-up and a super crisp break at 4.0-4.5 lbs.
