CMMG is offering an AR platform rifle that has the features of the AK-47, a hybrid: Mk47 Mutant.
While the idea of chambering an AR platform rifle with AK47 7.62x39mm rounds is not new CMMG has engineered a hybrid rifle that has the ease of takedown of an AR 15/M16 with a receiver designed for the 7.62x39mm cartridge that has more range/power than the 5.56mm/.223 caliber.
It has a beefy AR-10 carrier designed for .308 Win and 7.62mm NATO ammunition so it can take the ballistics of a 7.62x39mm. It weighs less than the AK-47 and uses standard AK-47 magazines that rocks into place. The magazine release is the AK paddle type and uses steel, polymer and Bakelite magazines due to a replaceable steel support pin.
The Mk47 Mutant has a two-position safety lever on the left side just above the grip. The trigger is a single-stage with better than average mil-specs with a 5 lb., 14 oz. Trigger pull. It cycles crisp and cleanly.
Components include shoulder stock, mil-spec buffer tube assembly, grip, trigger group, gas tube, has block, and threaded muzzle. The AKM version has a six-position adjustable shoulderstock and an MOE grip. The muzzle is fitted with a CMMG SV Brake to reduce muzzle climb with a weight minus accessories and magazine at 7 lbs. 5 oz.
