Mossberg has added a new variation of its subcompact handgun, the MC1sc Stainless Two-Tone in 9 mm. This latest model joins the recently introduced family of four MC1sc models as Mossberg’s first semi-automatic pistols in the company’s 100-year history.
The stainless model features a black polymer frame with a bead-blasted, stainless-steel slide featuring aggressive multi-angle serrations for positive slide manipulation. It is topped with dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights. The frame is glass-reinforced for impact and chemical resistance, while the 3.4” stainless steel barrel features a black DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) finish and a 1:16 twist rate. A cross-bolt safety is optional, and is reversible for right or left-handed shooters.
Other standard features include a flat-profile trigger with integrated blade safety; short, tactile reset; reduced overtravel; and a 5- to 6-lb. trigger pull weight. Trigger guards are oversized for ease of access and comfort. All MC1sc models come with a flush 6-round and an extended 7-round single-stack Clear-Count magazines. Constructed of a transparent, lubricious polymer compound, the magazines offer low friction and high wear-resistance, while providing quick at-a-glance assessment of the number of rounds loaded. MC1sc pistols also have a reversible magazine release, located behind the trigger guard. Featuring Mossberg’s signature texturing, the grip has an added palm swell and grip angle, similar to a 1911, for a more comfortable, confident grip. And completing the MC1sc Stainless Two-Tone is Mossberg’s exclusive, patent-pending Mossberg STS (Safe Takedown System) which, unlike competitive products, does not require the user to pull the trigger to dissemble for routine cleaning or maintenance.
