If you’re a fan of the Glock 43X format, but want a bit of an upgrade, then the Shadow Systems CR920 range of pistols may be just the gun for you. I had a chance to shoot it at Industry Day at the Range during SHOT and it’s quite nice. Check out what Shadow System’s has to say about it:
The CR920 is an ultra-concealable subcompact that is designed with comfortable shootability in mind. Designed to shoot like a full size pistol, the CR920 conceals easily inside G43X MOS or G48 MOS holsters, while packing a 13+1 round extended capacity or 10+1 flush-fit capacity.
The CR920 comes equipped with the Shadow Systems features you have come to expect, like an aggressively textured frame. The frame texture is wrapped around the frame to keep the CR920 firmly seated in the shooter’s hands, despite its small size. The extended magazine baseplate features the same texture on the front, to allow an extra tacky point of contact for the pinky finger.
The slide features directional serrations in the front, rear for all models. The Elite model adds directional topside serrations and a weight-optimizing window cut. Steel sights feature a blacked out serrated rear and a bright green tritium front, for easy sight picture. Combat Optic and Elite models come equipped with the patented Shadow Systems multi-footprint optic cut. The optic cut allows direct-to-slide mounting of a variety of micro red dot options from the top brands, including the Shield RMS and Holosun 507k. The CR920 has a match-grade, spiral-fluted 3.41 inch barrel, finished in bronze TiCN or black nitride.
Internals feature a stainless steel guide rod and a drop-safe, flat-faced trigger. The trigger has a 4.5-5.0 pound trigger pull and a crisp, tactile reset. The CR920 ships in a zippered pistol rug with two magazines: a 13+1 capacity magazine and a flush 10+1 capacity magazine.
