Smith & Wesson didn’t just dip its toes into the .308 Winchester AR market—it jumped in head first with its M&P10.
A variety of features ensure that the M&P10 stands out from other large-receiver ARs. Among them is a firing pin spring that's designed to eliminate the potential for an unintentional discharge upon chambering a round. The rifle also has a Smith & Wesson-designed and built, patent-pending Enhanced Flash Hider.
The rifle tips the scales at less than 8 pounds, which is relatively lightweight even for an AR chambered in 5.56 NATO—which is saying something, since the M&P is chambered in .308 Win., 7.62 NATO.
You can get a closer look at the M&P10 below, in a video hosted by Shooting Illustrated Managing Editor Ed Friedman.
