Mossberg 715T (37202)
The Mossberg 715T represents the world-renowned company's first foray into the world of the rimfire AR-15 platform. Just one in a new line of .22-caliber AR-15 rifles, the Mossberg 715T is a semi-automatic rifle based on the original AR-15 platform, but chambered for the .22 LR rimfire cartridge rather than the .223 Remington cartridge. Also unlike the original platform, the 715T utilizes a blowback system of operation as opposed to a direct impingement gas system. Lightweight and easy to shoot, the 715T is an ideal choice for first-time shooters, training, recreational shooting and small game hunting. Each rifle ships with a single, reduced-capacity, 10-round magazine.
O.F. Mossberg & Sons, more commonly known as Mossberg, is an American arms manufacturer that was founded in 1919 by Swedish-born Oscar Frederick Mossberg alongside his two sons. Mossberg came to the United States in 1886, where he worked in a bicycle factory owned by Iver Johnson. Though the company was founded on the Mossberg Brownie, a four-barreled handgun chambered in .22 LR, it is now known the world over for producing exceptional rifles and shotguns.

With the Mossberg 715T, the company has officially thrown its hat into the affordable rimfire AR-15 market. The Mossberg 715T is everything you want from an actual AR-15 in a package that is available for a fraction of the price. It is perfect for training for the real deal without worrying about recoil and a sky-high ammunition bill. Worried about reliability? You should not be. The 715T is based on the operating system found in the reliable Mossberg 702 autoloader. You want accessories? The 715T features a quad rail handguard that makes mounting lights, lasers, grips and other tactical equipment the simplest of tasks. And just like its big brother, the 715T features a six-position adjustable stock that changes the length of pull from 10 1/2 inches to 14 1/4 inches – perfect for younger marksmen.
The Mossberg 715T features an 18-inch blued barrel alongside an overall length that measures approximately 35 inches. The blued finish found on the barrel serves to protect it from rust and corrosion as well as arming it with a higher resistance to wear. As noted, the 715T also features an adjustable stock. This synthetic stock combines with a polymer receiver and handguard for a rifle that weighs in at just 5 1/2 pounds, making it easily handled by shooters of all ages. The 715T also includes a fixed carry handle with a top rail for the mounting of optics should the shooter choose not to use the integral A2-style sights, which include a dual aperture rear sight that is adjustable for both windage and elevation. As noted, the rifle is chambered for the .22 LR rimfire cartridge and includes a single, reduced-capacity, 10-round magazine.
