Default Brand new 2012 S&W M&P Magpul Mid-length

I saw this on another forum and thought there might be some interest here... looks good.

"Smith & Wesson has partnered with Magpul to produce their new M&P 15 Magpul mid-length. It features a FORGED lower styled just like Magpul's famed lower featuring unique styling and a integrated trigger guard. The rifles are S&W first mid-length gas system offering. They have a 1:8 twist 5R CMV barrel with a mid-length gas system and S&W's patent pending flash hider. They are offered with your choice of Black or FDE Magpul MOE furniture. MSRP is $1249."

I would like to fondle one of those, I really hate those handguards though. I know a lot of people like them but they just look to bulky to me and are too much of a handful.

my next ar15 is going to be a near copy of that. minus the fsb for a flip up front post. minus the foregrip wit a acog.

i love the magpul handguards they are the next best thing to the old triangle handguards.

i dont like the sw flah suppressor at all its very ugly.

The AR I put together last year at this time is much like the bottom S&W pictured. Mine has a S&W M&P-15 lower, Daniel Defense midlength upper/pencil barrel, MOE handguard and pistol grip, MBUS rear with A2 FSB, CTR stock...

I'm looking forward to this AR. I've been wanting a 1:8 and the Magpul lower is a draw as well.

I'm not a fan of them either. Just don't like how they look. Love the Pmags and the hand grip, just not the handguards.

Love MagPul in general, tho...

That IS a great looking lower and I bet it's finished as nice as the older one I have. I love S&W lowers, silky smooth and nice beveled magwells.

How about the important stuff like the barrel? Can you get something like that on an Oly, DPMS, or whatever?

SW seems to be taking the consumers needs/wants to heart. It's going to force others to step it up.
