Smith & Wesson's M&P 15 line of modern sporting rifles have been hugely popular with AR-15 fans for very good reasons: They're reliable, affordable and fun to shoot. Today, the venerable firearms manufacturer has announced the launch of the newest generation of M&P 15s, the M&P15T II. This new AR-15-style rifle boasts all-new features by special request of S&W fans, beginning with its chambering: 5.56mm NATO.

Of course, the new M&P15T II boasts more than a hunting-ready caliber. It also features the premium enhancements that competitive shooters and hunters demand, such as a full-length aluminum M-Lok handguard for your favorite accessories. If you've ever been irritated by the way some AR-15s don't offer enough clearance in the trigger guard, you'll love the M&P15T II's a forged, oversized trigger guard ... which allows the shooter to wear gloves without worrying about accidental trigger contact. 

Speaking of triggers, the M&P15T II is equipped with a new flat-face trigger for crisp and consistent trigger pull. They've also made the charging handle easier to manipulate; its Radian Raptor-LT charging handle is ambidextrous. The M&P 15T II rifle features a free-float 16” barrel that features 5R Rifling with a twist rate of 1:8. It has a mid-length gas system that offers reduced recoil and efficient cycling.  Also included is a Magpul CTR carbine-length stock and 15” aluminum M-Lok handguard topped with Magpul MBUS sights. 

Vince Perreault, Senior Brand Manager, said, “With the M&P15T II, we set out to include some of the latest features that consumers demand on a high-end MSR – a full-length handguard, flat face trigger, ambidextrous controls, and more. The M&P15T II delivers premium enhancements in a high-performance modern sporting rifle.” MSRP $1,372; Smith-Wesson.com
