CMMG Announces the MK47 AR/AK

CMMG announced a new rifle today called the MK47 Mutant, an AR/AK hybrid system. And by hybrid, I mean that it fires the 7.62×39 round and takes AK mags, but uses the AR direct impingement gas system with a .308 sized bolt.

From Facebook:

CMMG is proud to announce the arrival of the Mk47. This is something truly new, truly unique. The Mk47 is the first mid sized AR. The 7LB CMMG Mk47 utilizes a .308 sized bolt, accepts AK mags and Drums. The goal with the Mk47 was to address the issues plaguing 7.62×39 AR rifles, namely, weak bolts and unreliable magazines. The mid size receiver keeps the weight down and is the perfect platform for other mid sized cartridges.


And there’s already a YouTube review…check it out.

    They should do some research before claiming they are the first to make such a rifle. Another company local to me has been selling making and selling them for over a year now.

    Copy that. Great idea. But hardly the first out of the box. But CMMG has a rep for good quality arms at an affordable price. This one, I think, bears looking into – as do the others.
    The cheap, plentiful supply of 7.62×39 alone makes it worthwhile.

    I wonder why they decided to go with DI instead of piston?

    Creative Arm’s rifle is utilizing the AK-47 gas system, keeping it just as reliable as the AK itself, but adding the same feel as the AR-15 platform using its trigger system and controls. They are offering range days for people to go out and try the rifle itself and I believe they are scaling their manufacturing right now!
