Default new M&P 15-22 models for 2014

It looks like Smith and Wesson have come out with some new variations of the M&P 15 (as well as some other new models) for 2014. It appears that there are three new finishes for the 15-22 including tan and black, purple platinum, and harvest moon orange.

Interesting, but not very appealing to me. Thanks for the link.

The tan and black is the coolest in my opinion.

To heck with the painted rifles... The 929 is going to be the tool to have for USPSA revolver.

I guess they had to do something since Duck Commander went to Mossberg for their new line of bang-toys.

Is it just me, but I think it real ugly to have this fancy paint job... and then throw on black pistol grips, magazines & sights?

Agreed.Nothing personal to all that have multi colored guns, but FDE furniture on a black lower, barrel etc is still kind of hard for me to wrap my head around. But to each his own!

I think it is sacrilegious to use rainbow colors on a firearm.I don't care what age group they are catering to.

That is my opinion and I'm sticking to it....at least until they come out with colors like "Choo Choo Cherry" or "Goofey Grape". A man has to have his limitations.

Ugh... The result of too many "Call of Duty" kids wanting to play for real. The market drives the product.

That's how mine is outfitted - CTR buttstock, Hogue grip, MagPul AFG2 and FDE rail ladders. Everything else is black.

I'll pass on all the funky colors and finishes except for maybe the RealTree version and even that's a stretch.

Makes me think of the saying, "there is no accounting for bad taste".

You ever hear, "black is beautiful"?

The purple is not that bad. But then, I did a purple, lilac, and grape paint job on my wife's 15-22.

It's not MAGPUL until you have the MOE 2 piece hand guards on there.

Pretty sure they market it as the MOE, that's what the advertising I saw said.

Product: Model M&P15-22 MOE Rifle - Magpul® Sights, Stock and Grip

I did see your conversion kit though, looks cool.

That is the only one I really like. I just hate when Smith always shows their revolvers from the right side so you can't see if it comes with the internal lock.

Even they know it's horrible or they would gladly show it. If it doesn't have a lock I will buy one.
