Mossberg Goes M-LOK

Mossberg M-LOK

O.F. Mossberg & Sons is the latest company to offer factory guns with M-LOK handguards. Announced at the recent SHOT Show, Mossberg showed three of its MMR carbines with 13″ free float Magpul M-LOK handguards.

These new M-LOK models are not additions to the line. Rather, they are replacements for the prior MMR rifles. In other words, Picatinny rails are a thing of the past on the MMR. Also a thing of the past is the use of Stark pistol grips on the MMR. Not surprisingly, Mossberg is also using another Magpul part: the MOE pistol grips. I just wished they would have gone one more step and used Magpul’s MBUS sights.

Mossberg sells these rifles in three configurations: standard, compliant and California compliant. As the names suggest, the features and function of the gun step down from the standard model.

The standard MMR is chambered in 5.56 NATO and comes with a 16.25″ barrel with an A2-style muzzle device and a 1:8″ twist. It has an M4-style adjustable buttstock to fit a broad range of shooters. It ships with a standard capacity 30-round magazine and weighs in at 6.75 pounds (unloaded.)

The compliant models are also chambered in 5.56 NATO, but ship with a 10 round magazine only. The California model is equipped with the state required bullet button.

The suggested retail price on these guns is $910.

    You may want to rewrite this.
    “Mossberg showed three of its MMR carbines with 13″ free float Magpul M-LOK handguards.”

    While M-Lok is Magpul designed, those handguards are not made my Magpul.

    You mean “step up from the standard model”, unless you’re one of those folks who is opposed to the reasonable common-sense safety of our children and communities.

      I’m not seeing the “common sense” you imply.

    • TheSmellofNapalm

      Yeah, that “common sense” was super evident in San Bernadino last year. Oh wait… no it didn’t, it was a goddamn slaughter despite the mag restrictions and you don’t know what you’re talking about.

      • JSmath

        It seems more and more often a great number of people are mistaking “collectively agreed upon stupidity” as “common sense”.

        If you were to dissect common sense’s two words for meaning, this would almost be reasonable, but that’s entirely OPPOSITE THE POINT.

      Common sense? Si omnes-Ego non!

    • SlowJoeCrow

      Long before gun control was touted as ‘common sense’ measures, the concept was promoted as a means to keep ethnic populations in an unequal position while assuaging the fears of whites.

      I’d say the compliant is a step down from the standard, and the Cali compliant is a step down from the regular compliant.

    I just saw this at the Great American Outdoor show. The handguard is rather heavy and thick.

    “I just wished they would have gone one more step and used Magpul’s MBUS sights.” S&W did, along with the M-Lok rail, and it’s probably a lot better than Mossberg’s offering.
