New Variants in Smith & Wesson M&P Rifle Line

    S&W M&P10 Magpul

    Smith & Wesson announced two new variants in the M&P line of rifles.  The first is a new M&P10 that ships with a 20-round Magpul magazine.  Prior M&P10 rifles shipped with five- or ten-round magazines.  This version of the gun will retail for $1,619.

    The second new variant is in the M&P15 line.  Smith & Wesson will now offer an all black version of the .300 Whisper rifle.  Recently, this gun has only been available in Realtree APG camo.

    Previously, S&W offered an all black version of the rifle with a 16″ barrel and a quad-rail.  After that model was discontinued, the company continued to offer a complete upper assembly with the quad-rail.  That was also discontinued.

    Smith & Wesson stated that the new black rifle will not come with rails, and instead it will have a standard, ribbed handguard instead.

    The 16″ barrel has a 1:7.5″ twist.  A 30-round Magpul magazine is standard with the rifle.  Retail will be $1,119.
