The New FOUNDATION SERIES From Shadow Systems

Shadow Systems has built a name for itself as being some of the best manufacturers for great feature-rich concealed carry pistols at a competitive price. Shadow Systems is now proud to announce their new less expensive line of striker-fired pistols with the introduction of the new FOUNDATION SERIES of MR920, XR930, and DR930 pistols. These new pistols feature sleek ergonomics, great shootablity, and “bet-your-life” reliability with a much more palatable price as long as you’re not obsessed with aesthetics and only want essential features for your carry pistol.

The FOUNDATION SERIES is built on Shadow Systems’ world class frame. Optimized wrap-around texture gives supreme control during rapid fire without wearing uncomfortably against the body when concealed. Featuring three interchangeable backstraps that change not the size of the grip but the angle of the bore, the Shadow Systems frame can be tailored to the shooter’s natural point of aim. A deep cut above the trigger guard provides greater control with a modern thumbs-forward shooting grip. Lastly, the gently extended and upswept beavertail prevents slide bite without the characteristic oversized appearance of other frames in the market.

The FOUNDATION SERIES will come standard with nitrided slides, angled pocket-cut serrations, multi-footprint optic cut, plain black serrated rear and white dot front sights with a 1/3 lower co-witness, match grade +P rated barrels, carbon steel guide rods, 4.5-pound drop-safe triggers, and two Magpul Glock magazines. The FOUNDATION SERIES of pistols starts at an MSRP of $679 which is about $350 less than the typical cost of the MR series of pistols. The new FOUNDATION SERIES should be available now at big box stores like Bass Pro and Cabela’s and through Shadow System’s lineup of dealers and distributors starting in September of this year.

    Website ad copy is incorrectly labeled. This should be 4" and 4.5" barrels respectively; sadly they do not make a 5"-5.3" barrel version.

    After following SS's owners FB page I'm back on the Glock bandwagon. SS has had too many growing pains that causes issues that I cannot trust my life to use them as a conceal carry pistol.
