CMMG’S Mk47 MUTANT MARKS THE BIRTH OF A NEW BLACK RIFLE

Mk47 AKM2_2

Fayette, MO (Dec. 1, 2014) — CMMG Inc. today announced the release of the Mk47 MUTANT – an all-new rifle platform that combines the accuracy of the modern sporting rifle and relentless AK47-like reliability with the legendary 7.62x39mm caliber.

Engineered from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, the Mk47 MUTANT features a uniquely designed upper and lower receiver built to manage the dimensions and pressures of the 7.62x39mm tapered cartridge all while keeping the weight of the rifle at a minimum. Remarkably, the Mk47 MUTANT (while unloaded) weighs just over seven pounds.

The Mk47 MUTANT utilizes a unique bolt carrier group derived from the massive AR10 group, which aside from being shortened to a length of eight inches, retains all of the material on the bolt face for added durability and strength.

The lower receiver is designed to accept existing AK magazines, which are widely available, inexpensive and extremely reliable. A standard ambidextrous hook and latch system makes reloading fast and intuitive. The rifle comes with one Magpul PMAG® 30-round AK/AKM MOE® 7.62×39 Magazine.

A full-length Picatinny rail runs atop the Mk47, making it easy to mount your preferred sights or optics. CMMG’s RKM KeyMod™ Hand Guard is exceptionally light and ergonomic. It also gives users the freedom to mount a wide array of accessories using the KeyMod slots found in the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. For accessories that are not yet KeyMod compatible, CMMG offers 5-slot accessory rails.

The Mk47 sports a 16.1” free floated barrel with a 1:10 twist and runs on the proven carbine length direct impingement gas system. By effectively maximizing the accuracy and harnessing the knockdown power of the 7.62x39mm, the Mk47 is an ideal rifle for a variety of sporting and defense applications.

    Okay – I’ll be “that guy”….

    Why the direct gas impingement?

    Also… com block mags will eat the magwell area a la the original Sig 556R.

    Looking forward to a shootout review comparing it to an Izmash or similarly high quality, modern AK – basically, both running dots and decent triggers. That could help reveal whether the accuracy of the A-K is inherently worse than the AR, or whether it is more a function of low quality control x39 ammo.
