EAA MC 14T by Girsan: Tip-Up Ingenuity

A common issue among handgun owners or those interested in getting a handgun is trouble racking the slide. There are quite a few reasons why someone might have trouble with slide manipulations, including hand injuries, arthritis, reduced strength, and more. Whatever the cause, it can cause significant issues when choosing a gun. EAA’s MC 14T by Girsan aims to solve that issue with an interesting, tip-up design. The MC 14T is made to be user-friendly, especially for shooters with compromised hand strength or function.

EAA’s MC 14 T by Girsan is made with a focus on ease of use along with a host of other useful features. The gun’s Tip-Up design means there’s no slide racking required, making loading and firing the MC 14T fast and easy. The gun maker states there are minimal moving parts required to go from loading to firing. The MC 14T by Girsan is chambered in 380 ACP, has a capacity of 13 +1, and is made for what the manufacturer calls a 1-2-3 loading and firing process.

Keith Bernkrant, President of EAA, said:

Once we started to work with the MC 14 T we quickly realized that loading and unloading, as well as training, is easier with a Tip-Up design pistol as it simply eliminates the need to rack the slide altogether. I wish that we had worked on this project earlier after seeing just how simple and intuitive it is. The Tip-Up barrel with its external safety, external hammer and auto firing pin block, is the solution to many pistol owner’s issues and simple safe carry.
