Smith & Wesson Adds M&P 15 Moe SL Rifles

posted on May 17, 2017
Smith & Wesson upgraded its line of M&P 15 rifles through a partnership with Magpul. Together, the two companies integrated Magpul's new MOE SL line of furniture onto the popular AR-15 line from Smith & Wesson.

"We've enhanced the M&P15 Magpul Spec Series of rifles with some exciting new hardware upgrades from Magpul," said Jan Mladek, general manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands. "The M&P15 MOE SL rifles incorporate many of the popular slim line Magpul accessories that shooters were adding to their rifles in a ready-to-shoot package, as well as a new Stealth Gray option."

The new M&P 15 MOE SL lineup features several of the latest slim-line furniture products out from Magpul, including the company's mil-spec MOE SL Carbine Stock, MOE grip and a mid-length MOE SL handguard. The upgraded furniture is available in three different options: black, stealth gray and flat dark earth.

"Magpul and Smith & Wesson have been collaborating for almost 10 years," said Drake Clark, Magpul's senior director of sales and business development. "When it came time to refresh the M&P 15 line, we were excited to assist with the development. The new M&P15 MOE SL rifle has the latest SL slim line Magpul accessories, and we know these will be popular with M&P fans."

Another main feature of Smith & Wesson's new line of rifles is the inclusion of a mid-length gas system, providing reduced recoil to the shooter, ensuring that owners can make quicker follow-up shots. Other touches include a Smith & Wesson/Magpul co-branded receiver, along with a Magpul MBUS rear sight, a 5R-rifled barrel that features a 1:8 twist rate and a patented Smith & Wesson flash suppressor.

The new Smith & Wesson M&P 15 MOE SL line of rifles sell at a suggested retail price of $1,239.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
