Smith & Wesson Reveal Their New M&P 15T II Rifle
23 Jun 2021
If ever Smith & Wesson want to continue their licensed M&P airsoft rifles, then this new M&P 15T II Rifle is what we want to see done. It’s hard to find an M&P AEG, which is made either by ICS Airsoft or King Arms and we believe these have been discontinued. What we know about Smith & Wesson products for airsoft are mainly made for Umarex and Cybergun such as the M&P pistols and revolvers. Tokyo Marui also manufactures M&P pistols.
Smith & Wesson announced their new M&P 15T II Rifle which is the latest in their highly successful sporting rifles. According to the company, they upgraded the design with the design the Magpul CTR carbine-length stock, flat face trigger, and the M&P grip which was first seen in the M&P pistols which four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts. Just like the M&P 15T, it comes with the 15-inch free-float M-Lok handguard.
With the M-Lok now the dominant rail interface system for new rifles nowadays, the welcome add-on with the M&P 15T II is the inclusion of the interchangeable grips which are seen in the M&P pistols such as the M&P9 and M&P40. Shooters can select which of these grips can give the most comfortable grip.
The M&P 15T II Rifle is now available to order in the USA for $1,372.00. More information revealed in the press release from Smith & Wesson below and an old video made with Jerry Miculek on the M&P 15T in 2017. As for an airsoft version in the future, we wait.
