Mossberg’s return to the handgun market with their new MC1sc sub-compact was released this week on an eager market but how does it shoot? To answer that question, Fred Mastison with Personal Defense World talks to Mossberg staffers and gets some range time in on the gun.

Announced Thursday, the new MC1sc pistol weighs 19-ounces empty, largely due to its glass-filled polymer frame. Billed as ideal for every day carry, the new pistol boasts a six-round flush-fit and 7-round extended magazine while a 3.4-inch barrel translates to a 6.25-inch overall length.

If you are curious on the features the svelte G43 competitor has, Mossberg released this video just addressing that.

Of note, the “return” to the handgun market comes as a nod to Mossberg’s initial handgun offering, the .22LR Brownie, a four-barrel pocket gun made before FDR took office.
