Chambered in 5.56mm NATO/.223, the M&P15X sports a 16-inch barrel with a 1 in 8-inch twist and a slim, aluminum carbine-length handguard with a two-inch M-LOK aluminum Picatinny style rail. Legendary pro shooter Jerry Miculek showed off the M&P15T during Industry Day at SHOT Show in January, firing 10 shots on three targets in 1.59 seconds to set a new speed record.
The M&P15T, meanwhile, features a 16-inch barrel with a 1 in 8-inch twist as well. Also included in this rifle is a 13-inch modular free-float rail system with Magpul M-LOK capability, in addition to Magpul MBUS sights. It’s available in 5.56mm NATO/.223.
The M&P15X retails for $1239, while the M&P15T has a MSRP of $1190. Both models ship with a 30-round PMAG magazine. See below for a rundown of features, as well as a pair of videos that show Jerry Miculek wringing out each rifle.
