Mossberg has updated its MMR line with the release of the MMR Carbine, a modern sporting rifle (MSR) that retains the essential elements and interoperability of a direct-impingement AR-pattern rifle in a package that is updated and thoroughly modern. Compatible with AR-pattern magazines, the MMR Carbine accepts both 5.56mm and .223 Remington ammunition.

The receiver is rather unique in its omission of a dust cover and forward assist. It is topped with a receiver-length Picatinny rail that continues along the length of the slim-profile handguard. The handguard comes slick, and is relieved with Magpul’s M-LOK-compatible openings that are ready to receive M-LOK accessories. The 16.25-inch-long barrel free-floats within the handguard for improved accuracy. The front of the handguard slopes aggressively up and away from the shooter to provide just over 1 inch of additional sight radius for mounting a manual front sight.

The MMR Carbine ships with easily removable, fully adjustable manual target sights. Two other versions are New York and California compliant, and you can order one with a fixed or collapsible stock (where legal).
