More about the MC2sc.

With its double-stack magazines, the compact-profile MC2sc offers increased capacity but is comfortably sized for concealed carry with an overall length of 6.25 inches, height of 4.30 inches and slim 1.10-inch width. The MC2sc also features an optics-ready slide for ease of mounting micro red-dot sights. Available in two frame variants (standard and cross-bolt safety) and with optional TRUGLO Tritium ProTM Night sights, each MC2sc comes equipped with both an 11-round flush and 14-round extended magazines.

Constructed of glass-reinforced polymer, MC2sc frames feature high tensile strength and stiffness combined with impact and chemical resistance. The slides are 416 stainless steel and feature a black DLC (Diamond-Like Coating). For positive manipulation, the slides have angled front and rear serrations and integrated into the slide is a removable plate which allows for direct mounting of optics (Shield RSMC footprint). And unlike competitive products, the user is not required to pull the trigger to disassemble the MC2sc for routine cleaning or maintenance with Mossberg’s revolutionary STSTM (Safe Takedown System).

This easy-to-carry micro-compact features a 3.4-inch stainless steel barrel with cut-broached rifling; 1:16 twist rate; and black DLC finish. The ergonomic grip is angled at 18 degrees, naturally points like a 1911; has an added palm swell; and features Mossberg’s signature aggressive texturing for a positive, comfortable grip. MC2sc pistols have a reversible magazine release and, on select models, a reversible cross-bolt safety. Other standard features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights (drift adjustable); 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 weight.

All MC2sc models have a reversible magazine release behind the trigger guard. A manual cross-bolt safety (shown with red indicator, above) is available as an option. (Photo courtesy of Mossberg)

The MC2sc flush 11-round and an extended 14-round double-stack magazines are constructed of coated steel, which offer low friction and superior wear-resistance. The magazines also feature easy-to-remove floorplates for ease of cleaning and high-visibility followers.
