The SP-01 Shadow Custom's stock (right) is a more highly tuned version of the Shadow Custom Exclusive (left), which offers refinement, but fewer high-performance parts. The Custom pistol on the right has had more extensive beveling inside of the magazine well. The thin aluminum grip panels make the gun considerably skinnier and more directional for better control.
On the left is the Shadow Custom Exclusive. The Shadow Custom on the right shows a reduced mass hammer (top arrow) for faster action and a more sophisticated rear sight. Note how it reaches further rearward (bottom arrow) for greater sight radius. The rear face of this sight unit was also wider, blocking out more peripheral light to create a higher-definition sight picture. Clarity of sight picture promotes speed of recognition. More subtle is that the Exclusive's rear sight blade on the left was grooved to diffuse glare. The Custom's rear sight blade was smooth but tilted rearward to cast away glare.
The aluminum grip panels with high quality non-skid inserts gave the gun a more natural index and better access to the trigger.
