The Mossberg Modern Rifle (MMR™) is a successful line of hunting and tactical AR-15’s for the North Haven-based company. All MMR rifles feature:
- Traditional direct-impingement gas system for reliable, smooth operation
- Free-floating, button-rifled, carbon steel barrels with 1:9 twist rates for increased accuracy in this standard military chambering
- Single stage triggers
- Black phosphate and anodized metal finishes for enhanced durability
Mossberg includes an over-sized trigger guard to assist in the use of the rifle while wearing gloves. The grips of both the hunter and tactical series are Stark® Ergo Pistol Grips with battery storage compartments. An ambidextrous charging handle, which developers oversized, make charging the weapon easy for left and right-handed shooters. Designers also chose to remove the forward assist.
Mossberg designed the MMR Hunter with the varmint and small game hunter in mind. Hunters have a choice between the Mossy Oak® Treestand® and Mossy Oak Brush® coating. A traditional A2 style buttstock gives the rifle a familiar feel. Dual swivel studs grace the forend for the addition of bipod and sling and the stock features a rear stud with attached sling swivel. Designers optimized the 20-inch barrel with a 1:9 twist rate, and a recessed hunting crown. The machined aluminum receiver has an integral Picatinny rail for ease of adding optics with Weaver-style rings. Included is a five-round magazine; however, the MMR Hunter accepts most higher-capacity AR-15 style magazines.
The MMR Tactical is a perfect fit for the competition or tactical shooter. Chambered in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem) the Tactical versions come with a durable black phosphate/anodized finish and feature a 16.25 inch free-floating barrel with removable A2-style muzzlebrake; aluminum Picatinny quad-rail forend with vents for maximum cooling; receiver-mounted integral Picatinny rail; and standard dust cover. Options include 6-position adjustable or fixed stock which allows for up to 4 inches of length of pull adjustment; available with or without removable Picatinny-mounted front sight (adjustable for elevation) and rear sight (adjustable for windage and elevation); and choice of 10-round or 30-round magazine. MMR Tactical rifles accept most higher-capacity AR-15 style magazines.
Mossberg delivers dependable, innovative, and value-packed firearms to hunters, recreational shooters, servicemen and women around the world. It is only natural that Mossberg brings the next generation of firearms to the marketplace—the MMR Hunter and MMR Tactical rifles.
