Mossberg Announces the New MC1sc Subcompact 9mm Pistol
#1
Mossberg hasn’t offered a handgun to the public in almost a century. But with the announcement of their new MC1sc 9mm striker-fired subcompact single stack pistol, the gun maker best known for their ultra-reliable and eminently affordable shotguns and rifles is back in the concealed carry business in a big way.

Another single stack sub compact 9 in an already crowded market. Apparently pocket 9s are the hottest selling guns. But I don't think "Mossberg" when I think of handguns. I think it will have to be sold pretty cheap in order to squeeze in.

I agree. I don't think it will be much of a hit in the overcrowded market. So many great guns have a long headstart.

It's a sharp looking little pistol.  The cross-bolt safety is interesting.  MSRP $425 so street price 'should' be around the $350 mark give-or-take, and it will need to be in that range to compete.  Be interesting to see if it takes off.

With cross-bolt safety.

Here are the stats:
  • Capacity: 6+1 Flush Mag, 7+1 Extended

  • Safety: Integrated trigger blade safety, optional cross-bolt safety

  • Frame: Polymer

  • Overall length: 6.25 in.

  • Barrel Length: 3.4 In.

  • Height: 4.30 in.

  • Width: 1.03 in.

  • Weight: 19 oz. empty, 22 loaded

  • Sights: Dovetailed 3-dot

  • Pull Weight: 5-6 lbs.
I think they'd have done better to make it thinner and lighter.  Not terrible but not great for a single-stack either.

In Mossberg's defense, they have a big name (mostly shotguns) so they are well known and have a large existing customer base. Apparently the sub compact 9 market is huge so even if they only take a small part of it they will likely still make a profit considering it is pretty cheap to make a plastic gun. The profit margins are pretty high on plastic.

You know, Mossberg often lags with products, but when they do move, they move well.

I'm looking forward to seeing one at the NRA convention. I don't know that it is something I would buy, put it doesn't hurt to look.
