Smith & Wesson has announced that through a collaboration with Magpul Industries, it is adding three firearms to its popular M&P15 series of rifles. The new M&P15 MOE SL rifles integrate Magpul’s MOE SL accessories that shooters were adding to their rifles in a ready-to-shoot package, as well as a new Stealth Gray option.

The rifles have also been enhanced to feature the latest Magpul slim line accessories such as the MOE SL Carbine Mil-Spec stock, MOE grip, and MOE SL mid-length handguard in three different color options, Black, Stealth Gray, and Flat Dark Earth.

“Magpul and Smith & Wesson have been collaborating for almost 10 years,” said Drake Clark, Magpul senior director of sales and business development. “When it came time to refresh the M&P15 line, we were excited to assist with the development.  … we know these will be popular with M&P fans.”  

The M&P15 MOE SL rifles feature a mid-length gas operating system, resulting in lower recoil and the ability to make quick, accurate follow-up shots. The rifles also feature a Smith & Wesson/Magpul co-branded lower receiver, Smith & Wesson patented flash suppressor, folding Magpul MBUS® rear sight, and a lightweight 5R rifled 4041-steel contoured barrel with a 1:8” twist rate. MSRP: $1,239
