You may remember that Smith & Wesson, now American Outdoor Brands, acquired Crimson Trace about a year ago. One of CT’s most recent innovations is their wireless LiNQ System for triggering lights and lasers. So you had to figure it was only a matter of time before AOB blended an M&P rifle with CT sighting technology. The result: the M&P15T. Here’s their press release . . .
