A sound design is a sound design, regardless of its original purpose. And while Remington has a long history of adapting its renowned sporting firearms to tactical variants, Big Green takes a different path with its new R-15 VTR series, building excellent hunting rifles on the AR-15 platform.
More specifically, why did a company like Smith & Wesson decide to leap into production of the design, putting its oldest brand name on the new rifle and calling it the M&P. That stands for "Military & Police," and embodies a reputation that has been famous and respected worldwide for more than a century.
The rifle combines Savage's Model 10 bolt action with an aggressively tapered, medium-contour barrel set in a synthetic stock and covered in Mossy Oak Brush camouflage. Taking a closer look at the Predator Hunter's features reveals that a lot of thought from both sides went into its creation.
