Combining excellent ergonomics, performance-driven features and an increased capacity with its double-stack magazines, makes the Mossberg MC2c 9mm pistol a great size for concealed carry or home protection. Five initial offerings will include two frame variants (standard and cross-bolt safety); choice of slide finishes (black DLC-finished or bead-blasted stainless steel); and optional TRUGLO Tritium Pro Night sights. And all MC2c models come with 13-round flush and 15-round extended coated-steel magazines.
Carryability begins with the compact size of the Mossberg MC2c 9mm pistol which features a 3.9-inch barrel and has an overall length of 7.1 inches; surprisingly-slim width of 1.10 inches; and height of 4.90 inches. Weighing in at 21 ounces (unloaded), this semiauto is designed to be incredibly narrow for its capacity.
In addition to its concealability, the MC2c pistol’s ergonomic features help ensure that this EDC compact pistol is comfortable to shoot. The grip has an added palm swell and grip angle, like a 1911, and features Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a more confident, firm grip. The stainless-steel slide features aggressive multi-angle serrations that provide positive slide manipulation and MC2c pistols also have a reversible magazine release, located behind the trigger guard. Models are available with a cross-bolt safety, which is reversible for right or left-handed shooters.
The Mossberg MC2c frames are constructed of glass-reinforced polymer, which provides for high tensile strength and stiffness as well as high impact and chemical resistance. Slides are stainless steel with the option of Black DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) or Matte Stainless finish. And integrated into the slide is the Mossberg STS (Safe Takedown System), which unlike other products, does not require the user to pull the trigger to dissemble for routine cleaning or maintenance.
Other standard features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights (drift adjustable); stainless steel barrel with cut-broached rifling and 1-in-16 twist rate with black DLC finish; front accessory rail; oversized trigger guard; and flat-profile trigger with integrated blade safety. Trigger features include short, tactile reset; reduced overtravel; and approximate 5.5-pound trigger pull weigh.
The Mossberg MC2c flush 13-round and an extended 15-round double-stack magazines are constructed of coated steel which offers low friction and superior wear-resistance. The magazines also feature easy-to-remove floorplates for ease of cleaning and high-visibility followers.
Mossberg has established their place in the concealed carry pistol market with the 2019 release of the MC1sc (subcompact); and now with the launch of a companion compact pistol, the MC2c.
