SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced that through a collaboration with Magpul Industries, it is introducing three new firearms to its popular M&P15 series of modern sporting rifles.
As the newest additions to the market leading M&P15 rifle platform, the M&P15 MOE SL rifles integrate Magpul’s MOE SL accessories, while delivering the performance and dependability that consumers have come to expect from Smith & Wesson.
Jan Mladek, General Manager of the Smith & Wesson and M&P Brands, said “We’ve enhanced the M&P15 Magpul Spec Series of rifles with some exciting new hardware upgrades from Magpul.
