So I keep seeing the one listed in the classified and it peaks my interest. Has anyone shot one and what makes it any better than a Glock 19?

I almost got one but I just could not get over the authenticity of a glock...I saw some vids of guys who had to send their guns back to shadow systems for jamming and I've never had to do that with a glock. They said that the company stood behind and solved the issue but they had to replace various parts before the issue was solved. The gun is "what a glock should be from the factory" as far as features and feel...but I just could not get over the fact that I've been happy with the real thing and money is scarce. Whoever gets that gun in the classifieds is getting a good deal though! It's probably fine.

I have one and have 500+ rounds through it. It came with a weak recoil spring, and I had four malfunctions during the 200-round specified break-in period. Those malfunctions were all failures to feed. Shadow Systems sent me a new recoil spring. Since then, I have had three more malfunctions. All three were first round from a magazine from slide lock when using the Magpul Pmags that ship with the pistol. I have not had any such issues when using Glock mags, but that sample is small comparatively.

The only real plus of the pistol is the optic mounting system. If you don't intend to mount an optic and want a better trigger and grip than a Glock, buy a CZ P10.
