When Mossberg got back to creating and producing pistols, it was great news for gun lovers everywhere. Not only is their pistol line innovative and well-made, it’s had regular additions of reliable, quality guns that are ideal for self-defense use. And there’s something for red dot lovers, too: The Mossberg Optic Ready MC2c (compact) pistol.
Mossberg has redesigned their MC2c (compact) 9mm pistol with an optic-ready slide that allows for the direct mounting of micro-dot optics (Shield RMS footprint) and increased capacity with its double-stack magazines. The MC2c Optic Ready pistol comes with a 14-round flush and 16-round extended magazine, and available models include a standard version with white 3-dot sights; an option with TRUGLO Tritium Pro Night Sights, and standard version with reversible cross-bolt safety. A 10-round standard version, which includes two 10-round magazines, is available for areas where magazine capacity is restricted.
The MC2c features a 3.9-inch barrel and has an overall length of 7.10 inches; surprisingly-slim width of 1.10 inches; height of 4.90 inches; and weighs in at 21 ounces (unloaded). Other standard features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights (drift adjustable); stainless steel barrel with cut-broached rifling, 1-in-16twist rate, and black DLC finish; front accessory rail; oversized trigger guard; and flat-profile trigger with integrated blade safety, reduced overtravel, and approximate 5.5-pound trigger pull weight.And now, integrated into the MC2c slide is a removable plate which allows for direct mounting of an optic (Shield RMS footprint) that facilitates co-witness with the white 3-dot sights. Compared to standard sights, an optic-equipped pistol offers increased accuracy and speed and will provide a much easier time employing the sight for shooters with older or ailing eyes.
