Rifle Review: Mossberg MMR Tactical Carbine

In the market for an AR-15? You might want to give the MMR — Mossberg Modern Rifle — a look.

I spent a week at Gunsite Academy training with this bargain-priced AR and was impressed with the accuracy, reliability and easy handling of the sub-$900 rifle. This gun is made for long-range accuracy, with a free-floating barrel. I found that it more than delivered on that front, shooting tight, consistent groups. In three solid days of shooting and after hundreds of rounds sent downrange, the MMR ran without a hiccup aside from one failure to eject.

Competitive shooters will appreciate the M-LOK mounting system on the handguard, which allows you to attach accessories, optics and other gadgets. The gun comes with front and rear target sights, but they're easily removed if you'd rather use other sighting options.

Whether you’re a tactical operator, a competitive shooter or a weekend plinker, the MMR is worth a look. Check out the video for more details.
