Smith & Wesson teamed up with Crimson Trace to launch the new M&P15T rifle with a factory installed Crimson Trace LiNQ laser sight and light system.
The modern sporting rifle boasts a 13-inch M&P slim, modular free float-rail system. Chambered in 5.56mm NATO, the AR-15 offers 5R rifling for increased accuracy. The long gun comes fitted with Magpul MBUS front and rear sights as well as the Crimson Trace LiNQ system. The LiNQ is a wireless operated laser sight and light setup that offers a bright green laser and 300-lumen white LED light for low light shooting.
“The M&P15T rifle was the perfect platform to showcase the award winning LiNQ, wireless operated system,” Lane Tobiassen, president of Crimson Trace, said in a press release. “Together with Jan Mladek, general manager for the M&P Brand, we were able to collaborate and develop a firearm package that showcases the versatility of the LiNQ as well as the ability of the M&P15T rifle to adapt to accessories.”
The LiNQ system boasts patented instinctive activation laser system operation button on the pistol grip, windage and elevation adjustments and laser and strobing
