Smith & Wesson’s New M&P 10

Brad Walker

I spoke with Matt Rice from Smith & Wesson a couple of days ago at their SHOT Show booth, and he gave me the rundown on the brand new M&P 10. That’s right, folks – she’s chambered in .308. I’ll give you a quick rundown, with a more thorough review after I get home and get in some time on the range.

Smith and Wesson has had tremendous success with their M&P line, and have had a generous amount of interest in a big bore variant. The M&P 10 is the same size as its little brother, the M&P 15, yet features some well-appreciated additions such as a truly ambidextrous selector switch, a flat top upper receiver and gas block for iron sights and optics, as well as Smith & Wesson’s own unique flash hider that allows users to easily clear a room with ease or keep the rifle shooting flat from distance while keeping its flash signature low.

It arrives standard with a collapsible stock and an 18″ barrel with a standard handguard, but can be upgraded to a Magpul version appointed with Magpul furniture, as well as Troy Industries BUIS.

The M&P 10 is also available in a camp version for hunters and outdoorsmen, though the camo version does not have a flash hider (it does come with a Magpul fixed stock).

 

This addition to M&P’s prestigious and extensive line of pistols and rifles adds another level of versatility and range to shooters who want a larger caliber rifle that feels and hefts like their favorite M&P 15.

More to follow. Spec sheets below.
