The long-slide MR920L is built on the compact-sized MR920 frame. The MR920L has noticeably less muzzle rise than the MR920. Interchangeable backstraps allow shooters to adjust the grip angle to fit their natural point of aim. When paired with the extended beavertail and aggressive trigger guard undercut, the MR920L offers optimal recoil control. The frame’s wrap-around grip texture is aggressive enough to keep the gun firmly in the shooter’s grip without being uncomfortable for daily wear.
The full-length MR920L slide features directional serrations in the front, rear, and topside, a weight-optimized window cut, and a thinned profile at grasping locations.
The match-grade barrel is conventionally rifled, spiral-fluted to improve evacuation of debris.
The drop-safe, flat-faced aluminum trigger has a 4.5-5.0 lbs trigger pull and a crisp, tactile reset. The MR920L Elite features a patent-pending optic cut that allows shooters to mount the mini red dot optic of their choosing. The optic cut on the MR920L can accommodate most major brands of RDS optics directly mounted to the slide, without intervening plates or adapters.*
I own a Shadow Systems MR920. It's good pistol, especially compared to the Glock after which it is modeled. They fixed a lot of things people didn't like about Glocks but not all of them. The pistol still has a sticky slide stop button, an equally sticky slide release button, and it has a traditional Glock clunky feel when it fires. I've always disliked Glocks but I bought the Shadow System pistol on the advice of a friend. Again, its a good pistol, and it shoots pretty accurately, but in the same price range you could buy a Walther, a Beretta, or an FN. The Walther, in particular, offers a superior firearm at the same price point. The Shadow Systems pistol is a Glock with leather seats and power windows. I'm just not sure it's the best gun for the money.
