Following the phenomenal success of the MC1sc™, Mossberg’s first semi-auto pistol in the company’s 100-year history, Mossberg is announcing the next in its series of feature-rich handguns: the MC2c (compact) 9mm pistol.
The post Mossberg Expands Handgun Line with MC2c Compact 9mm Pistol appeared first on GunsAmerica Digest.
Mossberg is growing their handgun line with the introduction at SHOT Show of the new MC2c 13+1 9mm pistol platform.
An upgrade to the company’s MC1sc sub-compact launched in 2019, the new MC2c is still a 9mm with a slim profile but brings a double-stack magazine and slightly larger size to the game. Offered in five models that vary in finish and sight options, all come standard with a flush-fit 13-round magazine as well as an extended 15-round mag.
“Combining superior ergonomics, performance-driven features and an increased capacity with its double-stack magazines, makes the MC2c a great size for concealed carry or home protection,” says Mossberg in a press release on the new handgun line.
When it comes to specs, the MC2c features a 3.9-inch barrel with an overall length of 7.1 inches. Width is a trim 1.10-inches while height is 4.90-inches. With a 21-ounce unloaded weight, the MC2c roughly approximates the Glock G19 but comes in just slighly smaller.
The newest Mossberg pistol (sounds weird doesn’t it?) is on point with the ergos, having multi-angle serrations on the slide and a reversible magazine release. For those who crave a cross-bolt safety, it is an option and is also reversible for right or left-handed shooters. There is also an oversized trigger guard with a flat-profile trigger. Like the MC1sc, the guns use Mossberg’s Safe Takedown System which allows the striker-fired pistol to be field stripped without pulling the trigger.
Other features include dovetail-mounted, low-profile white 3-dot sights that are drift adjustable, a front accessory rail and options for either a black DLC-finished or bead-blasted stainless steel slide. Likewise, there is a variant with TRUGLO Tritium Pro night sights.
MSRP on the Mossberg MC2c ranges from $490 to $595 depending on the model.

Sig Sauer jumps on the red dot pistol bandwagon, unveiling a new series of P320 pistols topped with its Romeo1Pro optic.
The P320 RXP series features four models — Full Size, Compact, XFull, and XCompact —chambered in 9mm. All models come with Sig’s Romeo1Pro Optic — a 6 MOA open reflex sight. The Romeo1Pro sports 12 brightness settings and TruHold Lockless Zeroing designed to handle recoil and return to zero. Boasting a 20,000-hour battery life, the optic is IPX-7 waterproof rated and is houses in aircraft-grade aluminum to prevent corrosion.
The P320 RXP Full Size and Compact Pistols include:
- Suppressor heigh backup sights
- Ambidextrous slide catch lever
- Reversible magazine catch
- Modular polymer grip module in small, medium and large
- Ships with two magazines — the Full-Size comes with 17-round mags and the Compact comes with 15-round mags
The P320 XFull and XCompact RXP offer:
- X-Ray 3 Day/Night suppressor height sights
- XSeries grip module
- Flat face trigger
- Nitron XSeries Slide
- Extended ambidextrous slide catch lever
- Ships with two magazines — the Full-Size comes with 17-round mags and the Compact comes with 15-round mags. Consumers can also opt for 10 round mags to adhere to state restrictions
The P320 RXP series deliver a 3-point takedown which Sig calls “intuitive,” requiring no trigger pull to disassemble. The guns are also equipped with a striker safety and disconnect safety.
The popularity of red dots on full size and carry guns has increased with many manufacturers now providing optics ready models for consumers. Sig Sauer says the hesitation for most gun owners in owning a red dot system is installation and proper zeroing; but the new P320 RXP eliminates this fear with its ready to go setup, according to the company.
“Sig Sauer is the only manufacturer in the firearms industry that can truly integrate a firearm and an optic into a single system right from the factory to completely eliminate the installation hesitation of the red dot,” Tom Tayler of Sig Sauer said in a news release. “With the introduction of the Sig Sauer P320 RXP series of pistols we are leading the Red Dot Revolution so end users can easily achieve greater performance and increased accuracy with one simple purchase.”
The P320 RXP series will be on display at SHOT Show in Las Vegas Jan. 21 through Jan. 24. Keep it locked to Guns.com as we head to Sin City and bring you more news and coverage from Sig Sauer’s booth.
The banner headlines that always accompany SHOT Show in glamorous Las Vegas, NV have not even hit, yet we’re in the know about several sweet new firearms for 2020. For hunters stashing their Christmas money for the new year’s latest and greatest, here are three serious rifles for the new decade.Henry Side Gate 45-70
Henry’s introduction of the H024 Side Gate rifles marked the greatest innovation in lever-action rifles for ages. Not only does the company maintain its tubular loading gate but also engineered the design to include a much-anticipated side loading gate. Shooters can now load the magazine tube via either option, trumping other lever gun companies loaded solely through the receiver port.
It’s especially helpful–and safer–to unload via the tube without having to cycle live rounds one-by-one through the action. Likewise, topping off a few rounds can be done much more quickly through the side gate. The new design also puts Henry rifles into legit cowboy shooting competition where speed reloads are key.
While the three original calibers — .30-30 Win, .38-55 and .35 Rem — hit home for many nostalgic shooters, many folks clamored for the hard-hitting .45-70, and Henry answered with guns that are beginning to ship in early 2020. If the .45-70 Side Gate announcement isn’t enough, Henry also concurrently debuted the first dual-loading gate shotgun with a .410 bore. All the Side Gate Henry rifles are currently built on the company’s recognizable hardened brass frames with fancy checkered American Walnut stocks. The initial MSRP is set at $1,077.Browning X-Bolt Hunter Long Range
There are several new additions to Browning’s long-range rifle lineup, but the most interesting to us is the Black Walnut-stocked X-Bolt Hunter Long Range. While more and more companies seem to head the way of synthetic furniture for practical and cost-saving purposes, the romance and feel of hardwood just cannot be replaced for hunting purists. To that end, Browning seems to have hit a winner by offering the hardwood hunter but with modern features like the adjustable cheekpiece buttstock.
There’s also a detachable rotary magazine, adjustable trigger, short-throw bolt and threaded barrel topped with a muzzle brake. The heavy sporter weight barrels range from 22- to 26-inches, depending on caliber. The rifle weights, dependent upon caliber, hover both right above and below the 8-pound mark. The Browning X-Bolt Hunter Long Range is sure to attract fans of more classically styled rifles who still desire those longer-range hunting features and pinpoint accuracy.
Chamberings tailored to big game hunting include: 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Win, .270 Win, .30-06 Spfld, 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag. Initial MSRP range from $1,299.99 to $1,329.99.Savage 110 Ultralight
As Savage debuted what seemed like dozens of 110 bolt-action rifle models over the last few years there was one thing seemingly missing – a true ultralight model for serious backcountry hunters. At the dawning of a new decade, the company delivers in a big way with the 110 Ultralight. Savage has teamed up with Proof Research to create a carbon fiber wrapped stainless-steel barrel and Melonite skeletonized receiver all intended to greatly shave weight from the platform. The new Savage Ultralight rifles weighs in at a scant 5.8 to 5.85-pounds, making them a dream to carry at elevation on mountain hunts or through rugged backcountry terrain where every pound counts.
The new 110 Ultralight maintains the incredibly popular AccuFit adjustable stock system and user-adjustable AccuTrigger. There’s also a spiral fluted bolt and 5/8-24 threaded muzzle with a flush fit end cap. The detachable box magazine will hold either two or four rounds, depending on caliber. Chamberings include: .308 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, .280 Ackley, .270 Win, .30-06 Spfld, .300 WSM, 6.5 PRC and 28 Nosler. MSRP at the time of launch, regardless of caliber, will be $1,499.Conclusion
Whether you dig lever actions or bolts, long-range flat calibers or heavy knockdown power, three of 2020’s hottest new additions are sure to please. It’s all about modern innovation on existing platforms and we’re loving it.
The post First Look: Three New Hunting Rifles on Our Wish List appeared first on Guns.com.
The “aristocrat of big-bore semi-auto pistols,” the .44 Auto Mag was ahead of its time, and squarely behind the 8-ball when it came to luck.
Designed by unsung firearms genius Harry Sanford, the .44 AMP cartridge was born in the late 1950s. Devised with hunting in mind, the round has almost the exact performance envelope of a .44 Rem Magnum except that the Auto Mag is rimless so that it could be fed and extracted through a very specially designed semi-auto pistol.
Speaking of which, Sanford and Max Gera worked on the semi-auto pistol built around the cartridge for a decade, and the forward-thinking gun was perfected enough by 1969 to move into low-rate production.
The gun was a large-framed semi-auto that operated on a long-bolt short recoil system. To keep the beast of a round safely locked down, it used an eight-lug rotating bolt that resembles the kind found on M16/AR15 rifles. A single-stack detachable magazine about the size of a pack of cigarettes gave the pistol a 7+1 capability.
The grip and ergonomics were based on the High Standard HD target pistol while the takedown method and control surfaces were similar to those of the Walther P38.
Over-engineered and complex, the Auto Mag required methodical attention to detail and craftsmanship at all stages of the manufacturing process. Extensive use of machining and stainless steel created a solid gun that tipped the scales at almost four pounds.
The Auto Mag’s 6.5-inch barrel gave it a length from muzzle crown to hammer spur of just a tad under one-foot. This had the effect of making it about the same size as the six-shot S&W Model 29 .44 Magnum revolver while offering better handling, a longer sight radius, two extra shots with a quicker reload if needed and improved recoil.
However, all the craftsmanship needed to pull off the Auto Mag made the pistol a losing proposition when it came to producing them at a price the market would support. Based in Pasadena, Sandford’s original Auto Mag Corporation was only in business for about two years before bankruptcy shut the line down.
While Sanford eventually went on to start Arcadia Machine & Tool (AMT) and for years sold a line of handguns billed as Auto-Mags, these were not the same hogleg of yore.
For much of the past decade, a rebooted Auto Mag company has been trying to reboot the design with little market success.
Nonetheless, the Auto Mag grew into one of the most popular of unobtainable guns in history. Clint Eastwood slung the big .44AMP in one of the Dirty Harry films as did Burt Reynolds while fictional problem solver Mack Boland trusted the gun he dubbed “Big Thunder” in hundreds of pulp fiction novels. This ensured the platform has never fallen out of favor whenever people of the gun gather to talk hand cannons.
Today the .44 Auto Mag concept has largely been eclipsed by such production rounds as the 10mm and .38 Super which provide similar firepower in semi-autos as well as the Desert Eagle which loads actual 44 Magnums (with rims).
Still, there is just something old school cool about an Auto-Mag, tactical turtleneck and sneer not included.

Firearms designer Wildey J. Moore chased a dream to perfect the world’s first gas-operated semi-automatic pistol.
Moore, a prolific inventor with dozens of patents, first cooked up the idea of the beefy handgun that went on to carry his name while working for Swedish military contractor Carl Gustav in the early 1970s. While the Swedes took a pass on the idea, Moore would patent his concept in 1976.
The pistol bled off powder gases from the barrel via a series of ports, which drove an operating piston to cycle the slide. If you tuned the gas regulator all the way closed, the Wildey would revert to being a manually-operated pistol that the user had to rack manually. The benefit of the design was that the action helped tame the recoil of the .45 Win Mag to reportedly less than that of a .357 Magnum-chambered revolver.
With prototype piston guns in hand, Moore, who went on to work for Winchester at the same time the powerful .45 Win Mag and 9mm Win Mag handgun rounds debuted, struggled through the early 1980s to get his gun to the market.
Finally, under the banner of the Wildey Firearms Company of Cheshire, Connecticut, Moore promised the new gas-operated pistol, chambered for Winchester’s magnum rimless cartridges, in 1980 for $389, which adjusts to about $1,200 today. However, one thing led to another and the price of the production Wildey pistol in 1984, once it actually neared the market, was closer to $1,200 in Reagan -era dollars, or about $3K today.
Needless to say, the gun, pitched for use in IHMSA silhouette shooting and as a tool for serious big game handgun hunters, was not wildly popular (see what we did there?).
Then, a Hollywood miracle happened.
In November 1985, the Wildey was featured in the Charles Bronson retribution film Death Wish 3. A Cannon Film production that was pretty over the top even for its day, the big .45 Win Mag stole the show. The theatrical trailer for the action flick even showed a detail of adjusting the gas regulator on-screen.
The film, in an era long before social media influencers, sparked a serious interest in the gun outside of the small pool of long-range silhouette shooters and the Wildey surged in popularity.
For the next 25 years, the company continued under Moore, morphing through a series of minor name changes, and produced the now-iconic blaster in a host of Wildey Magnum calibers (.41WM, .44WM, 45WM and .475WM) in addition to 9mm Win Mag, .44 Auto Mag and .45 Win Mag. Likewise, the barrel lengths ranged from super shorty 5-inch models to as long as 18-inches.
However, the complexity of the giant gas gun meant that it was never produced in great quantities, with less than a few thousand ever made. The likelihood of a Wildey owner running into another such member of the same tribe in the wild is rare.
Finally, in 2011, USA Firearms in Winsted, Connecticut purchased Wildey and still produce the Wildey Survivor pistol today in .475 WM and .45 Win Mag in 8-, 10-, and 12- barrels.
Still, if you are looking for a handgun that out Deagled the Desert Eagle, it is hard to go wrong with a Wildey of any breed.

Skulking about the Guns.com Vault, I happened upon a unique gun chambered in a unique round – the Limcat RazorCat. Shipping in .38 Super Comp, the Limcat brings an open class gun to those interested in hopping into USPSA style shooting.
Limcat comes courtesy of Johnny Limcat and his two sons who handcraft each and every gun. Parts are custom fitted to perfection with the RazorCat model no exception. Introduced a few years ago, the RazorCat model by Limcat offers an open class gun for competitive shooters stocked with upgrades.
The pistol comes chambered in .38 Super Comp – a popular round in competitive circles for its ability to accept a variety of powders for reloading. The model I tested was an older version of the RazorCat, and I could see that it hadn’t undergone heavy use.
The pistol sports SV Infinity Signature Series grips, a tactical micro pocket texture with reversible magazine button, Phoenix Trinity frame and a short and narrow dust cover. The pistol also opts for a sight mount, though it was bulky and a little odd. It does, however, get the job done and compliments the gun’s aesthetics. Included in the box, the Limcat RazorCat came with five STI Gen 1 magazines with Taran Tactical Innovation baseplates and a Limcat Stealth holster to get you on the range as soon as possible.Range Time
Speaking of heading to the range, I took the RazorCat out for a test run finding it to be a bit “punchy” in its shooting. In my experience on the competitive circuit, some open class guns feel more violent in their recoil and handling but that’s not the case with the RazorCat. This pistol offers a flatter shooting feel, keeping the dot on target. Its heftier weight also helps when transitioning from target to target. Trigger pull comes in at around 1.5-pounds.Final Thoughts
All in all, the Limcat RazorCat proves addictive to shoot! If you’ve been on the hunt for a used open gun, the RazorCat offers a full setup to get you out on the range for some USPSA fun. Priced around $4,000, the RazorCat is on the pricey side but it’s worth it for peace of mind.
