Ruger SR-762

Two short months before the annual SHOT Show, Ruger announced the release of the new SR-762 rifle.  Maintaining the overall look and feel of the AR platform, the new Ruger SR-762 rifle is chambered in 7.62×51 (aka .308 Win) and uses a piston system similar to the company’s original SR-556 rifle.  The rifle appears to have a number of desirable features, plus ships with a number of accessories.

Smith & Wesson M&P10

In the most recent earnings call, Smith & Wesson indicated the new M&P10 rifles are selling very well.  As is typical for the company, S&W did not release any numbers for units sold or for how many are on backorder.  However, it seemed plain that the rifles are doing very well in the company’s line-up.

H&K MR762A1 Rifle

Heckler & Koch brought some new toys to Media Day 2012. The rifle that caught my attention the most was the new H&K MR762A1. This rifle is the 7.62 mm version modeled after the company’s MR556A1, which is chambered in 5.56 mm. This is the civilian model of the H&K 416 that was developed for military and law enforcement use.

HK MR762A1

The rifle sports the H&K gas piston system, ambidextrous features, and 10-round standard polymer magazines with the ability to accept the 20-round versions designed for the 416. The MR762A1 also offers a whole lot more.
