Designed with officers and service members in mind, the full-sized DR920 is a duty-ready pistol with features that are anything but basic. Designed to work with existing G17 holsters, magazines, and gear.
The DR920 frame features interchangeable backstraps to allow a shooter to adjust the grip angle to fit their natural point of aim. The extended beavertail and aggressive trigger guard undercut provide unmatched recoil control, allowing quick, accurate follow-up shots. 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 DR920 slide is designed for manipulation under stress, with directional serrations in the front and rear (as well as topside on some models) and a thinned profile at grasping locations.
The match-grade barrel is conventionally rifled, spiral-fluted, and available threaded or unthreaded.
The drop-safe, flat-faced aluminum trigger has a 4.5-5.0 lbs trigger pull and a crisp, tactile reset. Optic cut models allow shooters to mount the mini red dot optic of their choosing. The optic cut on the DR920 can accommodate most major brands of RDS optics directly mounted to the slide, without intervening plates or adapters.
The frame is the heart of the pistol and the key to controllability when shooting. Our design works to get the frame ultra-low in the hand, with an extended, upswept beavertail and a dramatic trigger guard undercut. The frame features wrap-around texture which is aggressive enough to give a positive grip in all weather without being uncomfortable for daily carry. Shadow Systems frames incorporate a textured recoil control ledge for the support-hand thumb to engage, which vastly reduces muzzle rise between shots and allows for faster follow-up shots.
Our frames feature the groundbreaking Shadow Systems NPOA backstrap system, which fundamentally changes the grip angle of the gun to meet the shooter’s natural point of aim. It’s not about comfort. It’s not about small, medium, or large. It’s about getting fight stopping hits at close range, under stress, whether you see the sights or not.
Shadow Systems frames have a generous internal magwell and also come with a removable magazine well, mounting, hardware, and tool, for those who want even faster reloads. Other frame features include a high-traction magazine release button, an enhanced slide-lever curtain, and compatibility with existing holsters.
