NEW Rifle!! AR-15 Style – Mossberg Modern Rifle

Posted on July 26th, 2011 by ar15news

Mossberg just announced the other day that they were venturing out into the AR-15 world with their new reasonably priced Mossberg Modern Rifle (MMR).  They will be available in two models, the Tactical and the Hunter.  The Tactical will be only available in Black.  The Hunter will be available in either Black or Camo.

These will all be Direct Impingement and chambered in 5.56/.223.  The only downside I see is that there is no Forward Assist.  Their are a few different configurations to choose from such as, Sights or No Sights, 6-position stock or fixed stock, 10-round mag or 30-round mag, etc.

Check out the press release and pictures below!  They are available for purchase right now at Mossberg.com

North Haven, CT – Though referred to as the “modern rifle”, the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle has been deployed with military personnel and law enforcement agencies for decades; and more recently, this very adaptable and versatile platform has become popular with recreational shooters and hunters alike. Mossberg is pleased to offer MMR Hunter rifles with advanced features specifically-designed for the avid hunter and a line of MMR Tactical rifles configured with the components most highly desired by competitive shooters and tactical operators. The initial offerings of the MMR Hunter and MMR Tactical rifles will be chambered in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem).
All MMR rifles feature a traditional direct-impingement gas system for reliable, smooth operation; free-floating, button-rifled, carbon steel barrels with 1:9 twist rates for increased accuracy in this standard military chambering; single stage triggers; and black phosphate/anodized metal finishes for enhanced durability. An oversized trigger guard allows for use with gloves. For a more positive grip and less shooter fatigue, these value-packed rifles feature Stark® Ergo Pistol Grips with a convenient battery storage compartment. To further enhance operation of the MMR rifles, the charging handle is oversized for quick and effective engagement by right or left-handed shooters and the forward assist has been removed.

MMR Hunter – Three initial offerings of this series in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem) will be dedicated to the predator, varmint and small game hunter: a black phosphate/anodized version and two fully camouflaged versions in Mossy Oak® Treestand® and Mossy Oak Brush®. A slender, checkered aluminum tubular fore-end is matched with an A2-style buttstock for a more traditional fit and feel. Dual swivel studs grace the forend for the addition of bipod and sling and the stock features a rear stud with attached sling swivel. The clean profile 20-inch barrel is optimized with a 1:9 twist rate and features a recessed hunting crown. The machined aluminum receiver has an integral Picatinny rail for ease of adding optics with Weaver-style rings. A five-round magazine is included; however, the MMR Hunter accepts most higher-capacity AR-15 style magazines.

 

MMR Tactical – Designed to support both sport shooting and tactical applications, the MMR will meet your needs. Chambered in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem) the Tactical versions come with a durable black phosphate/anodized finish and feature a 16.25 inch free-floating barrel with removable A2-style muzzlebrake; aluminum Picatinny quad-rail forend with vents for maximum cooling; receiver-mounted integral Picatinny rail; and standard dust cover. Options include 6-position adjustable or fixed stock which allows for up to 4 inches of LOP adjustment; available with or without removable Picatinny-mounted front sight (adjustable for elevation) and rear sight (adjustable for windage and elevation); and choice of 10-round or 30-round magazine. MMR Tactical rifles accept most higher-capacity AR-15 style magazines.

Mossberg has delivered dependable, innovative and value-packed firearms to hunters, recreational shooters and servicemen and women around the world for over 90 years, so it is only natural that Mossberg would bring the next generation of firearms to the marketplace – the MMR Hunter and MMR Tactical rifles.
