Since its 2009 debut, the Smith & Wesson Corp. M&P15-22 has grown to become one of the most popular rifles on the market, and our 18-second video clip of the rifle being fired is still our most-viewed American Rifleman YouTube video. Now S&W announces the new M&P15-22 Sport, its most feature-rich M&P15-22 to date, including premium Magpul accessories.

"By starting with the market-leading M&P15-22 rifle and building in enhanced standard features and value, we now offer consumers the opportunity to own a new, superior rimfire modern sporting rifle," said Jan Mladek, General Manager of the Smith & Wesson and M&P brand.

The M&P15-22 Sport model features a 10” M&P slim handguard that incorporates the popular Magpul M-LOK system, which allows for the easy addition of accessories without removing the handguard. A 2” M-LOK rail panel is included with each rifle. Standard on the rifle are the removable Magpul MBUS front and rear folding sights.

In addition to the standard matte black offering, the Sport is offered Kryptek Highlander and Moon Shine's Muddy Girl camo. 

The rifle will also be available in a Performance Center exclusive edition featuring an enhanced two-stage match trigger, match grade precision 18” threaded barrel and match grade chamber. The Performance Center model is also standard with a VLTOR adjustable stock and Hogue grip. MSRP: $449
