Mossberg is growing their handgun line with the introduction at SHOT Show of the new MC2c 13+1 9mm pistol platform.
An upgrade to the company’s MC1sc sub-compact launched in 2019, the new MC2c is still a 9mm with a slim profile but brings a double-stack magazine and slightly larger size to the game. Offered in five models that vary in finish and sight options, all come standard with a flush-fit 13-round magazine as well as an extended 15-round mag.
“Combining superior ergonomics, performance-driven features and an increased capacity with its double-stack magazines, makes the MC2c a great size for concealed carry or home protection,” says Mossberg in a press release on the new handgun line.
When it comes to specs, the MC2c features a 3.9-inch barrel with an overall length of 7.1-inches. Width is a trim 1.10-inches while height is 4.90-inches. With a 21-ounce unloaded weight, the MC2c roughly approximates the Glock G19 but comes in just slighly smaller.
The newest Mossberg pistol (sounds weird doesn’t it?) is on point with the ergos, having multi-angle serrations on the slide and a reversible magazine release. For those who crave a cross-bolt safety, it is an option and is also reversible for right or left-handed shooters. There is also an oversized trigger guard with a flat-profile trigger. Like the MC1sc, the guns use Mossberg’s Safe Takedown System which allows the striker-fired pistol to be field stripped without pulling the trigger.
Other features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights that are drift adjustable, a front accessory rail and options for either a black DLC-finished or bead-blasted stainless steel slide. Likewise, there is a variant with TRUGLO Tritium Pro night sights.
MSRP on the Mossberg MC2c ranges from $490 to $595 depending on the model.
