Shadow Systems showed off a few new models of 9mm pistols at Industry Day at the Range 2023. Their pistols share quite a bit of DNA with Glocks, but add features more often associated with custom modifications.

[SHOT 2023] New Shadow Systems Pistols
The new CR920P has the same footprint as a G48, but is essentially a G43X with a brake. Often, adding a brake to a pistol makes it much harder to find a functional holster. There are ample G48 holsters on the market so this is a smart move for compatibility. The CR920P at Range Day was a pre-production model but it ran well. Shadow Systems anticipates a Q2 delivery time frame on this model.
The brake used on the CR920P is fairly unique. It attaches with a clamping lock that secures around a sort of tri-lug cut in the muzzle. Unlike the tri-lug units used on guns like the MP-5, there is no twisting or turning to get this brake onto the barrel. It simply slides over the muzzle and locks down.
Shadow Systems also had their new DR920L available on the firing line. It is a G34-size gun, pairing an extended slide with a full size frame. The DR920L is available now with an MSRP of $1175.
Another new product is a compensator for existing threaded barrel Shadow Systems handguns. Set screws on the bottom of the compensator push a plate against the barrel to lock the muzzle device in place. They stressed that no screws actually make contact with the barrel or threads. Only the tensioner plate makes contact. The rear of the comp is also shaped to fit around the front slide profile used by Shadow Systems. It is shipping now, and is available on their website for $99.99.
