All New. Only Here.
Built in collaboration with Shadow Systems and John Lovell of the Warrior Poet Society (and ONLY available here), the new War Poet 9mm was created to be the ultimate multi-role duty Pistol. WPS chose the DR920 as the platform because it excels as both a duty weapon as well as a range pistol—and because it’s fully compatible with existing Glock 17 holsters, magazines and gear.
The New Optics Mounting System
The new optics mounting system is among the best we’ve ever seen, and was the result of considerable effort. By redesigning internal slide components, Shadow Systems was able to relocate portions of the operating system to allow strong, deep screw placement; extremely low placement for true co-witness with iron sights; and, most importantly, direct mounting of several red dots WITHOUT adapter plates.
The Shadow Systems DR920 frame
The War Poet Full-size is built around the Shadow Systems® DR920 Frame, which features interchangeable backstraps to allow the shooter to adjust the grip angle to fit their natural point of aim. The extended beavertail and aggressive trigger guard undercut provide unmatched recoil control, allowing quick, accurate follow-up shots. The frame’s wrap-around grip texture is aggressive enough to keep the gun firmly in the shooter’s grip without being uncomfortable for daily wear.
For the War Poet, WPS chose a 416R stainless barrel with conventional rifling—meaning it’s compatible with lead bullets. Stainless steel is highly corrosion resistant, so it’ll last far longer when exposed to sweat or humidity. The barrel is fluted to reduce overall weight, and comes threaded to accept a suppressor or muzzle brake. This model features a black nitride finish.
For the trigger, Warrior Poet chose a flat-faced polymer trigger that breaks clean after a 4.5-5 lb. trigger pull, and resets very quickly and audibly. You can hear and FEEL the reset, which makes follow-up shots more accurate. The end result is a highly customized lightweight Pistol that excels in every role. And…you’ll only find it here at Sportsman’s Guide.
The Holosun HS507C X2
The HS507C X2 gives you Multiple Reticle System (MRS) technology and extra-long battery life in a rugged reflex sight built for pistol applications. MRS technology provides the flexibility to change reticles with the push of a button. If you need a precise shot, run the 2 MOA dot only. When you need a reticle for fast target acquisition, turn on the 32 MOA circle with the push of a button. Or, combine both. Advanced LED technology is capable of squeezing up to 50,000 hours of life from a single battery. If you should happen to be without a power source, Solar Failsafe technology keeps your optic operating off of available ambient light—so battery failure is NOT an option. The HS507C X2 also features Shake Awake motion-sensing technology that powers up the optic with the slightest movement. Multi-coated lens offer a parallax-free sight picture with unlimited eye relief. Durable 7075 aluminum construction is unaffected by extreme weather conditions.
