S&W Introduces M&P 15 MOE SL Rifles
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced that through a collaboration with Magpul Industries, it is introducing three new firearms to its popular M&P15 series of modern sporting rifles. As the newest additions to the market leading M&P15 rifle platform, the M&P15 MOE SL rifles integrate Magpul’s MOE SL accessories, while delivering the performance and dependability that consumers have come to expect from Smith & Wesson.
Jan Mladek, General Manager of the Smith & Wesson and M&P Brands, said “We’ve enhanced the M&P15 Magpul Spec Series of rifles with some exciting new hardware upgrades from Magpul. The M&P15 MOE SL rifles incorporate many of the popular slim line Magpul accessories that shooters were adding to their rifles in a ready-to-shoot package, as well as a new Stealth Gray option. These additions expand Smith & Wesson’s advanced line of sporting firearms, while addressing consumer demands for exceptional performance and design.”
The new M&P15 MOE SL rifles have been enhanced to feature the latest Magpul slim line accessories, including the MOE SL Carbine Mil-Spec stock, MOE grip, and MOE SL mid-length handguard in three different color options: Black, Stealth Gray, and Flat Dark Earth.

The new M&P15 MOE SL rifle has the latest SL-slim line Magpul accessories, and we know these will be popular with M&P fans.”
