In February S&W will launch two new M&P15 (AR-15) models. The M&P15 MOE (Magpul Original Equipment) features, as the name suggests, as many Magpul accessories as they could fit on the rifle.

    Model: M&P15 MOE
    Barrel Length: 16”
    Barrel Twist: 1 in 9”
    Front Sight: M4 – A2Post
    Rear Sight: Folding Magpul MBUS)
    Overall Length: 35 ”Extended / 32” Collapsed
    Stock: Magpul MOE
    Weight: 6.5 lbs.
    Finish: Hard Coat Black Anodized
    Other Features: Magpul MOE Grip, Magpul Handguard, Magpul PMAG

    Two colors will be available: Black and Flat Dark Earth (what the cool kids call tan these days).

    Overall I think this is a compelling package. Instead of buying and AR-15, only to spend more on Magpul accessories you can just get an M&P15 MOE.

    No word on pricing.
