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.
The new 6+1 MC1sc (7+1 with the included extended magazine) will be available in models either with or without a reversible crossbolt safety.
Note the optional cross-bolt safety just behind the trigger in the image above.
The gun notably features a flat-faced trigger with a blade safety, “Clear Count” see-through magazines and their “Safe Takedown System” that doesn’t require a trigger pull to disassemble the gun.
It’s being offered in four models:
