Mossberg Mc2c Opticready

With the growing trend on the pistol market for slides pre-cut for mounting micro red-dot optics, Mossberg now offers the same adaptability for its polymer-framed, striker fired MC2c pistol line with the MC2c Optic-Ready pistol. With a length of 7.10", width of 1.10" and a height of 4.90", it offers a compact package while also accepting 14- and 16-round, double-stack magazines, with a loaded weight of 29 ozs.

Chambered for 9 mm, the MC2c Optic-Ready features a 3.9" barrel, with a 1:16" right hand twist rate, made from 416 stainless steel topped off with a DLC coating. The slides are also made from 416 stainless steel and feature the same finish. Angular serrations are machined into the front and back portions of the slides of the slide for extra grasp when racking. On top of the lids, the MC2c Optic-Ready includes a set of snag-free, three-dot iron sights dovetailed in, along with a micro red-dot optic mounting point with included cover.  

The frame is made from high-tensile strength glass-reinforced polymer, and features Mossberg's signature aggressive checkering in the grip section for added retention. The frame also features a slightly exaggerated beavertail at the back to reduce the chance of slide bite, along with a single Picatinny rail slot molded into the dust cover. For controls, the Mc2c Optic-Ready features a magazine release and slide catch located on the left side, along with a blade-in-shoe style trigger safety. The trigger shoe is flat in profile, and the rigger itself has a pull weight of 5.5 lbs. with 0.5" of travel.

The Mossberg MC2c Optic-Ready pistol has a restyle price of $556. For more information on the MC2c Optic-Ready, along with Mossberg's other pistols, visit
