The wildly popular MSR (Modern Sporting Rifle) platform continues to attract a growing number of sportsmen and shows no sign of ceasing. The new GUNS Combat MSR 2013 Special Edition devotes an entire issue to celebrate the many sporting uses of this incredibly in-demand rifle platform.
“Last year we had our first AR-15 Special Edition. To date, it’s one of the best sellers we’ve ever had, because like me, millions of Americans have stated the M16/AR-15 is their rifle,” says Sammy Reese, editor of FMG Publications’ Special Editions. “This year the title has changed to MSR to support the industry’s focus on showing the world this great platform does in fact have a huge sporting footprint for today’s shooters. The name may have changed, but you’ll still find the same great AR rifle content.”
The cover story for this Special Edition highlights the versatile CRP-18 from Colt Competition Rifle. Embodying the MSR platform at its best, the CRP-18 is a light and fast pointing rifle with precision fit parts, an advanced gas system and an abundance of handy custom features.
“The barrel of the CRP-18 is probably the most appealing thing about the rifle. It has a special custom fluting I can describe only as wicked cool,” says Herman. “The CRP-18 was built from the ground up as a 3-Gun shooters dream. You can literally walk out of the store, sight in the optic and be competitive at the range.”
This Special Edition covers leading MSRs and gear from a variety of manufacturers, including the Daniel Defense M4 v5 Lightweight Carbine, ArmaLite’s Super S.A.S.S. 7.62, the Rock River Arms LAR-15, Smith & Wesson’s M&P 15-22 and more.
Mossberg’s MMR Tactical in 5.66mm NATO highlights the first-ever GUNS Combat Gun Giveaway. Valued at over $2,500, this impressive prize bundle features the Leupold VX-R Patrol 1.25 4x20mm scope with a R.A.M.P. Mount from Warne Scope Mounts, a Vortex Optics Red Razor Dot Sight, grips from ERGO Grips, a Fieldline Tactical 48″ Recon Gun Case and a Vickers Combat Application Sling.
