Smith & Wesson Inc. has announced the launch of its latest modern sporting rifle (MSR), the M&P15T II.  Chambered in 5.56mm NATO, the new M&P15T II features premium enhancements that include a full-length aluminum M-Lok handguard, flat face trigger, Magpul CTR stock, M&P grip, and more.  

Vince Perreault, Senior Brand Manager, said, “With the M&P15T II, we set out to include some of the latest features that consumers demand on a high-end MSR – a full-length handguard, flat face trigger, ambidextrous controls, and more. The M&P15T II delivers premium enhancements in a high-performance modern sporting rifle.”

The M&P 15T II rifle features a free-float 16-inch barrel that features 5R Rifling with a twist rate of 1:8 and is equipped with a mid-length gas system delivering reduced recoil and efficient cycling.  The M&P15T II features a forged, oversized trigger guard to provide maximum clearance when wearing gloves and is equipped with a new flat face trigger for crisp and consistent trigger pull.

The M&P15T II comes standard with a Radian Raptor-LT charging handle, providing ambidextrous manipulation of the charging handle.  Also included is a Magpul CTR carbine-length stock and 15-inch aluminum M-Lok handguard topped with Magpul MBUS sights.  


The MSRP on the new Smith & Wesson M&P15T II rifle is $1,372. For more information, please visit: smith-wesson.com
