The folks at Smith & Wesson have announced their new M&P15-22 Sport, an update to the wildly popular M&P15-22 line. The new Sport variant will feature Magpul accessories as standard equipment.

The M&P15-22 SPORT features a 10-inch M&P slim handguard that incorporates the popular Magpul M-LOK system. The M-LOK system allows rifle owners to easily customize their M&P15-22 SPORT by adding accessories without removing the handguard. Smith & Wesson will include a 2-inch M-LOK rail panel with each rifle.

American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach had a chance to put his hands on the updated rifle at SHOT Show 2016's Media Day at the Range. You can check it out in the video embedded above.
