Mossberg has expanded its line of MC2 polymer-framed pistols with a new micro-compact 9mm, the optics-cut MC2sc. 

The newest entry into the same increasingly crowded category as the Sig Sauer P365, Springfield Armory Hellcat, and S&W Shield Plus is of comparable size and comes equipped with both an 11-round flush and 14-round extended magazine. The slide is made of 416 stainless steel and feature a DLC coating and a removable plate that has a factory Shield RSMC micro red-dot installation footprint.

Mossberg's submission into the Micro 9 field comes with both 11- and 14-round mags. Overall length is 6.25 inches, unloaded weight is 19.5-ounces, and the height with the flush-fit mag and no optics is 4.3 inches (Photo: Mossberg) 

Frames are high-tensile strength glass-reinforced polymer that features aggressive grip texturing and a palm swell. White three-dot sights are standard. 

Other features include a 3.4-inch stainless-steel barrel with cut-broached rifling and an 18-degree grip angle. It carries a flat-profile trigger with a 5.5-pound pull. As with other MC2sc pistols, the new MC2sc has a reversible magazine release and the company’s Safe Takedown System that allows for disassembly of the handgun without pulling the trigger.

Mossberg has five different models of the MC2sc, priced between $556 and $662. These include a variant with factory-installed Truglo Tritium Pro night sights, one with a cross-bolt manual safety, and state-limited models with 10-round mags.
