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 lightweight, multi-role Pistol. WPS chose the MR918 as the platform because it excels as both a concealed weapon AND a range pistol with a full 15+1 payload.

The War Poet 9mm is built around the Shadow Systems® Multi-Role Frame, which was designed to provide dramatically reduced recoil and muzzle flip. The frame makes use of new manufacturing techniques to place more texture around the curves of the grip—so it really sticks, even when your hands are wet or sweating. The frame is contoured to provide an ultra-high grip, with an extended beavertail to eliminate slide bite. It also comes with interchangeable backstraps that fundamentally change the grip angle of the gun to fit your natural point of aim. In addition to a generous internal magwell, the War Poet pistol includes an optional magwell for faster reloads.

The slide is machined from premium 17/4 stainless steel, and features an optics slide cut that accommodates Trijicon RMR/Holosun-pattern red dots. Alongside the optic cut, the slide features standard-height sights, which offer a 1/3 co-witness with the optic. A bright green tritium front sight and black rear sights allow for rapid front sight focus, even in low light conditions. Several lightening cut-outs help reduce weight and reciprocating mass for optimal recoil impulse. The front and rear serrations are more aggressive than most production pistol serrations, making slide manipulations easier, even under pressure. Unique Warrior Poet Society engravings make it totally distinctive.

For the barrel, WPS chose a 416R stainless barrel with conventional rifling—meaning it's compatible with lead bullets. The barrel is fluted to reduce overall weight, and comes threaded to accommodate a muzzle brake of your choice.

For the trigger, Warrior Poet chose a flat-faced polymer trigger that breaks clean after a 4-4.5 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.

I’ve been on here a while. Never made an account. But I couldn’t believe what was being said here.
I never would’ve imagined anyone in the 2A community disliking John, or the Warrior Poet Society.
His skills are undeniable. I’d love to see anyone post something doing it better than him. And his methods work. Just give them a try.
I’m not trying to start a fight.
But if anyone in the 2A community or claims to be a conservative can call the the values and principles he is trying to bring back to America “Cringey” or God forbid “Gay”. We truly are doomed as a society and the end is nigh.

No one is disliking the man. The Braveheart Warrior Poet thing is kinda weird. Its like still wearing super hero pajamas. Is it a good gun? Yeah. But do I want the cringy War poet on it for a extra $250? No. Is Lovell skilled? yeah no one denies that.

So what it’s just the name? Would a Tactical Rifleman shirt not be cringe worthy?
It’s really about what he’s trying to do. If everyone in our society had a mindset even somewhat similar to his. I might go out in public and actually converse with people haha. r comment here...

I don't think anyone who's not a troll thinks he's a bad guy it's just the whole "war poet" thing is kinda cringey and when you mix that with the clean cut conservative christian white guy persona it's a turn off to those of us who just want to do hoodrat stuff with our friends.

So if he had like a mullet and cussed a lot he’d be more relatable? Haha Couldn’t resist. Will never get that image out of my head now. Might have to photoshop that.

Not sure what a hood rat is. Must be why I don’t have any friends. Didn’t Shrek say something about cooking a mean hood rat stew? Hahaha

It would be a good start, Theo Vons mullet helped start his career. The persona that dude puts on is cheesey and cringey and attracts a certain type of person with a moral superiority "sheep dog" "oath keeper" complex The glock clones he's pushing are cheesey and cringey and attract a certain type of person with more money than sense willing to buy something for 2x it's value because someone laser engraved "murderer artist" on it or something equally as tacky as "war poet". These people are no fun, have no sense of humor and take themselves and life way too seriously. Personally I'll stick with the drinking/cursing guys over at Tactical Rifleman they're not selling a curated persona.

I don’t have any socialist media. This is the closest thing I’ve ever had honestly. But this comment thing is already getting on my nerves so this it it for me. Not trying to be a jerk. Just have better things to do.

I don’t see this specifically attracting the types of people you refer to. I certainly don’t have that mentality. I have a feeling you really haven’t given John a chance. I honestly thought the channel was goofy too the first couple videos I saw. He just has good advice and real world applicable skills. And happens to have morale standards I agree with.
I watch both WPS and Tactical Rifleman. But honestly I’ve seen John joke around a lot more than the TR guys. They’re all good guys I’m sure.

I am a Christian. So maybe I just relate to John more. I’ve actually seen John drinking a beer in a video though.
I’m 24 years old and have never tasted an alcoholic beverage. So maybe I’m just not your type of people.
You can do and believe whatever you want. It’s a free country. Just kinda figured 2A guys would try to stick together even if they don’t believe exactly the same.

But whatever, no skin off my back. Have a happy life, see you guys later.
Dang I don’t know how people do this all day haha.

I have to admit that when I first saw the name "Warrior Poet Society" some years ago, I was a bit put off. I was expecting some larp-ing millennial with a man-bun. After watching a video on Lovell's YouTube channel, I realized this wasn't the case. The more videos that I watched, the more I realized that John is the genuine article. He knows his stuff and wants to help others. While this pistol isn't for me, I've purchased a few things directly from the WPS web site, and found them to be a good value. For example, he sells rebranded Blue Force belts that work very well, and at one point were actually cheaper than buying from BF directly.

I was exactly the same way. The very first video I saw I was like “This seems a little cheesy.”

But like you the more I watched the more I realized John is one of the only real ones out there.

Then in one video he mentioned 5 combat tours and I was like “huh???” I never would’ve even guessed he was a vet. But that’s one of his amazing qualities is his humbleness and light hearted-ness. Most trainers take theirselves way too seriously.

This pistols really isn’t for me either. Maybe someday when I could justify that kind of cash.

But I’ve purchased a few things as well. I love the ShivWorks Clinch Pick. And I’ve bought a couple first aid items that were really good deals. And a t-shirt. Because I believe their cause, not because I’m some fanboy.

I subscribed to the network recently. Even just watching his classes I’ve gained an insane amount of knowledge. I couldn’t imagine actually attending one.

Considering you have an inability to use the reply button in a thread, it's kind of hard to decipher who you're trying to troll. Not only are you up voting yourself (which we can all see with a click btw), you're now editing to cover up your gibberish, I guess blocking people, and trying to shit on people for how much they're commenting while commenting more than them. Keep dat troll toll going.

I dont think this pistol sell very well due to palmetto state armory coming out with their version of the GEN3 19 for $299 or the fully loaded version- night sights, optics ready,threaded barrel, for $349. PSA just changed the gun market and they always put out quality equipment

0 votes

Lmao. You clearly know nothing of Shadow Systems. They make one of the best guns currently on the market. To think the PSA would be even close to this is laughable. Nice try tho, comparing an extremely budget, and completely untested, pistol to a highly reviewed and 100% loved firearm.

they make a decent build but nothing beats a stock glock, maybe change out the trigger connector but the more gucci you get the more likely it is to fail at high rounds. I've seen stock glocks go further than any zev build ever could and enough zev triggers fail to know I wouldn't want one in a combat situation and I can't imagine shadow systems is any better.

Very good point. I am not a PSA hater, I have five builds from them. I also own three MR918. They are the only pistol I carry.

I was going to get a G45 optics ready. When you add up the prices for a G45, threaded barrel, trigger upgrade (optional) and red dot site, you’re at around $1200, which is what the red dot model costs if you’re a SG member
