S&W's M&P15MOE Tactical Rifle Earns Shooting Industry Award

August 12, 2009  | 


Smith & Wesson Corp. has received top awards in two categories from the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence, including earning Manufacturer of the Year and the Rifle of the Year award for the company's M&P15MOE (Magpul Original Equipment) tactical rifle.

The manufacturer's M&P15 MOE rifle, which was first introduced at the SHOT Show in February 2009, expanded the company's popular line of Military & Police Series rifles that now includes 16 different configurations.

Based on a combat-tested design, the M&P15MOE incorporates Magpul's MOE gear with the accuracy and dependability that shooters have come to expect from Smith & Wesson, according to the company. The rugged, lightweight, semi-automatic rifle chambered for 5.56 NATO (.223) ammunition, features an upper and lower receiver constructed with 7075 T6 aluminum. Reliability features of the gas-operated rifles include a chrome-lined gas key, bolt carrier and barrel.

The new rifle is standard with several Magpul features including a MOE stock on a six position receiver extension tube, a MOE grip designed to enhance ergonomics while providing a positive anti-slip texture and a MOE handguard for improved firearm control. The MOE handguard also offers a modular platform, allowing users to add accessory items such as lights or lasers. In addition, the M&P15MOE is standard with Magpul's new MBUS rear folding sight along with a 30-round P-Mag. The rifle is offered with either black MOE gear or flat dark earth MOE gear.
