    Local range is a distributor for them. Iíll keep an eye out. They put pretty much everything in their rental counter. Looking forward to trying one.

    Not sure what's going on. I would have figured we'd have seen at least one or two on gunstroker by now. None on Gallery of Guns either.

    Anyone had any luck locating a DR yet? Shadow Systems posted some days ago that guns were shipping. This was before the Texas weather went upside down so at least some should have cleared the loading docks.

    Checked today and my local dealer didnít have any info on them yet. They were also out of stock on MR920s.

    2 of my local shops checked their sources for me and no luck here either.

    Another picture stolen from socialist media.

    Behold! SHADOW SYSTEMS NEW DR920!

    Probably the best way to think about this is as Gen4.5. It uses the original pattern slide release (non-ambi) but the barrel and locking block are Gen5 based. This means a Glock 19 or MR920 slide will fit. In fact the slide itself accepts the G19 recoil system but is extended to work with a G17 dust cover.

    I also notice that the firing pin is round and not rectangular as is also the case with Gen5 guns. The firing pin on my MR920 is rectangular ala old Glock. I assume Shadow is going to use round firing pins in everything going forward? It wouldn't really make sense to manufacture and stock 2 different types.

    Otherwise, the gun follows the MR920 in that it has the same sort of rough "grip tape" texturing and uses the slide-on backstrap inserts. It also has the pin-on mag well and the built-in beavertail.

    The optic cut is the same as that of the MR920. Same deep cut (and elimination of the extractor depressor) that will work with multiple optics.

    The light mounting point appears to be Glock and not 1913. I guess I'd have preferred 1913 but I don't know if anyone really cares.

    No rounds fired yet. I can maybe fix that this coming weekend.

    In the meantime, let me know if there are any questions I can answer.

    I do find it interesting that Shadow Systems basically made a big Glock 19 rather than a Glock 17. This makes sense given that they already made the slide for the MR920L.

    What I don't understand is why they didn't make a Glock 47. They have it here just by taking about half an inch off the dust cover. This would have allowed them to make a Glock 17 and a Glock 45 using slides they already make. It isn't too late but now they'd need a new frame mold and I assume they ain't cheap.

    Someone who is talented and has experience working with plastic frames such as @TXPO or Boresight Solutions could probably trim the dust cover and make it look factory.
