CMMG Inc. has released the Mk47 Mutant, a new rifle platform in 7.62x39 mm caliber that combines characteristics of both AR and AK-47 rifles. (see CMMG video below)

Engineered from 7075-T6 aircraft-grade billet aluminum, the Mk47 Mutant features a uniquely designed upper and lower receiver built to manage the dimensions and pressures of the 7.62x39 mm tapered cartridge-while keeping the weight of the rifle to a little more than seven pounds (unloaded).

The Mk47 Mutant utilizes a unique bolt carrier group derived from the AR-10 group which, aside from a shortened 8" length, retains all of the material on the bolt face for added durability and strength.

The lower receiver is designed to accept existing AK magazines; and a standard ambidextrous hook-and-latch system allows for fast and intuitive reloading. The rifle comes with one Magpul PMAG 30-round AK/AKM MOE 7.62x39 magazine.

The Mk47 also features a full-length Picatinny rail for easy mounting of sight or optic. A lightweight CMMG RKM KeyMod Hand Guard allows for 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 a carbine-length direct impingement gas system. By maximizing accuracy and harnessing the knock-down power of the 7.62x39 mm, the Mk47 is ideally suited for both sporting and defense applications.
