Shadow Systems takes on the role of firearms manufacturer, announcing its very own pistol design, the MR918.

Inspired by the Glock Gen4 G19 pistol, the MR918 looks to bring versatility to shooters with interchangeable backstraps. Referred to as the NPOA, or Natural Point of Aim system, Shadow Systems’ backstraps change the bore orientation of the pistol. The pistol ships with three backstraps — high, neutral and low — with each name relating to how the backstrap orients the muzzle.

“Many people find Glocks point high for them. Others love it. We have a High backstrap for Glock lovers, a Neutral backstrap that matches our custom Glocks with a backstrap reduction, and a Low backstrap that brings the muzzle down even further like a 1911 with a flat mainspring housing,” Shadow Systems National Sales Manager said in a news release. “Each one makes the gun point totally differently so you can find what matches your natural point of aim.”

The MR918 delivers premium features such as front and rear directional serrations, optic cuts, window cuts, stainless steel guide rods, and flat-faced triggers. The pistol also sports a removable magazine well for shooters who wish to better their reload times.

The MR918 will be available in March 2019 with a MSRP in the $799 to $999 range. Interested consumers can pre-order the MR918 now.
