Why after so long is EVERY manufacturer getting into the AR game? I mean come on, AR's aren't really a "modern" firearm any more.

I'm not complaining, they look like nice guns!

Considering the number of Dealers that have Mossberg available to them it makes sense for both. The Factory has a ready made distribution channel and the Dealers now have a firearm that they can make a reasonable markup on (assuming that customers will pay anywhere close to MSRP for a Moss'y).

It's a case of selling what people are buying. AR's are more popular than some might think.

I can't see what they could bring to the table technology or ergonomics wise, but more power to them! The price point is going to be key.

They've just followed the money. That's what keeps the doors open.

When money is involved you ask WHY?

Isn't the answer obvious?

I guess as long as people keep buying they'll keep making them with more and more companies competing for the market share.

Heck, I have three complete rifles myself, all from different manufacturers.
