EAA Introduces the Girsan MC 14 BDA

If you are in the market for a handgun with a solid combination of low recoil and firepower, consider a full-sized handgun chambered in .380 ACP like the new Girsan MC 14 BDA. Girsan produces high-quality clones of proven handgun designs, including the 1911 and the Browning Hi Power. The MC 14 BDA is their version of the out-of-production Browning BDA double-action .380 pistol.

EAA/Girsan MC14 BDA pistol
The MC 14 BDA is a must-have for the collector, CCW permit holder, or casual target shooter.

Quick Specs:

  • Caliber: .380 ACP/9mm Short
  • Action: Blowback; double/single-action hammer-fired
  • Safety: Thumb safety and firing pin block
  • Barrel Length: 4.5 inch
  • Overall Length: 6.8 inches
  • Weight: 1.4 lbs.

The MC 14 uses a Beretta Model 84-type magazine that holds 13 rounds of ammunition. The pistol has a lightweight aluminum frame and a forged steel slide. It comes with a 4.5-inch barrel, which gives you the most performance from the many potent .380 defensive loads on the market.

Functionally, the Girsan MC 14 is a double-action/single-action hammer-fired pistol that can be carried and fired with the hammer down on a live round. The MC14 has a frame-mounted manual safety for added redundancy. The pistol also has an internal firing pin block that makes it drop-safe. Imported by European American Armory, the MC 14 joins the likes of other large .380 pistols, such as the Beretta 80-series and the Smith & Wesson Shield EZ, that are easier to control and shoot compared to micro-sized pocket guns that normally chamber the moderately powerful .380 ACP cartridge.

The MC14 BDA has a pair of traditional three-dot iron sights and is available in a black or two-toned Cerakote finish. This new offering from Girsan is priced to compete with an MSRP of $368.
