We at TFB have followed Mossberg’s foray into the pistol market closely, we brought you the first news of the new MC1sc from SHOT 2019, I covered the historical precedent for Mossberg launching a pistol discussing their first ever firearm, the Brownie pistol, and we reviewed the new pistol too – Doc took a look and was pretty impressed, and so did JJ Reeves, he liked it too. Back in April Viridian introduced a laser sight for Mossberg MC1sc.
Now Mossberg have introduced a two-tone model of their pistol, I’m not crazy on two-tone handguns myself but I know a lot of you guys are fans of the look. The new two-tone MC1scs certainly carries off the look well. The new pistol even comes in a version with a cross bolt safety.
Here’s Mossberg’s announcement in full:
O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, today announced the release of a new MC1sc (subcompact) handgun; the Mossberg MC1sc Stainless Two-Tone in 9mm; available in standard-frame and cross-bolt safety frame versions. The MC1sc Stainless Two-Tone subcompacts join the recently-introduced family of four MC1sc models as Mossberg’s first semiauto pistols in the company’s 100-year history.
The MC1sc Stainless Two-Tone features a bead-blasted, stainless-steel slide over a matte-black polymer frame. The stainless-steel slide features aggressive multi-angle serrations that provide positive slide manipulation and is topped with dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights. The durable frame is glass-reinforced which provides high impact and chemical resistance combined with high tensile strength and stiffness. The 3.4-inch barrel, constructed of stainless steel, features a black DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) finish and a 1-in-16 twist rate. Optional cross-bolt safety is available 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-pound 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 our 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.
Superior ergonomics, innovation and engineering expertise are at the core of the MC1sc family of 9mm pistols.
The pistols will be available with an MSRP of $421. Check out Mossberg’s site for more information about the new pistol, here.
