Mossberg Announces Mossberg Modern Rifle (MMR)

Mossberg has announced its first foray into the world of AR-type rifles with the Mossberg Modern Rifle (MMR), chambered in 5.56.

7/22/2011

Though it's produced look-alikes in the form of the 702 Tactical Plinkster, Mossberg has officially announced its entry into the world of AR-type rifles with the Mossberg Modern Rifle (MMR). The MMR features a direct gas impingement operating system, free-floating carbon steel barrels, over-sized trigger guard for use with gloves, and a Stark Ergo pistol grip.

The MMR line will be initially offered in 5.56x45 mm (.223 Rem.) and is divided into MMR Hunting and MMR Tactical lines, with each offering features suited to the firearm's purpose. The MMR Hunting, available in black, Mossy Oak Brush and Mossy Oak Treestand, will have an aluminum tubular fore-end and A2-style buttstock, 20-inch barrel, Picatinny rail, Weaver-style rings and a five-round magazine.

The MMR Tactical line will have a 16.25-inch barel with removable A2-style muzzlebrake, Picatinny quad-rail fore-end, with the option of a six-position adjustable or fixed stock, and accepts either 10- or 30-round magazines. Check out the Mossberg website for additional information.

What is the difference between the 223 & 5.56?

I would like to see a company make an AR platform in .260. .223 is just too small for my comfort on small game like black tail.

MSRP US $835 is not a bad starting price.

I like the idea but when you make an annoucement you should have all the spec and feature questions answered that way you get people wanting to buy instead of talk about it. But Mossberg make good products so I will give it a try. I do like the idea of using 243 win instead of .223 or 5.56 it a good all around load.

I have no problem with seeing .223 in parentheses after 5.56mm 5.56 mm NATO (.223 Rem) Which indicates that .223 can be fired from a 5.56mm chambered weapon. The other way around, however, would definitely be misleading. .223 Rem (5.56 mm NATO)

Hey Chris. That's probably because you can shoot .223 in a 5.56. You can't shoot 5.56 in a .223.

Why hasn't anyone used the .243cal round. It is a fire breather with great knockdown. The 223 or 5.56 is OK but we have lost a lot of fighting men because the enemy wasn't stopped in time.

So does it meet MIL spec? Are the parts interchangeable with my ARs?

so, what's the difference in a 10+1 capacity and a 30+1 capacity, from model to model? The mag it comes with in the box? or is there a measure that requires a special mag that's only available in a 10-round configuration?

Are 1:7 barrels made from some sort of precious metal, which prevents almost everyone from offering one?

Very disappointed with American Rifleman! .223 Rem is NOT the same as 5.56x45! Pressure is higher in the 5.56 and cannot be safely fired in a .223 only weapon! Yet every reference to either caliber is followed by the other in parenthesis.
