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.
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.
