CMMG 7.62x39mm Mk47 Mutant

CMMG’s goal was to create a rifle that combines the strong points of both the AR-15 and AK-47. Loosely based on its Mk3 series of .308 Win chambered rifles, the aptly named Mutant fires a different breed of .30-caliber round, the 7.62x39mm. Its receivers are machined from billet of 7075-T6 aluminum.
As with a regular AR, the upper receiver goes on and comes off with the help of two captured pins in the lower receiver.
EOTech’s Model 518 features a 68-MOA ring surrounding a 1-MOA dot for fast target acquisitions, and the Model G33.STS 3X magnifier sits on a side-flip mount.

“The CMMG Mk47 feels like an AR that spits out AK lead, both good things in our book.“
The Mk47 AKM is equipped with a Magpul MOE grip and CTR carbine stock.
We attached Griffin Armament’s 30SD Flash Comp, which made a noticeable difference in easing the muzzle rise and overall felt recoil of the 7.62x39mm. A Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield can be attached to project concussive force forward.
After our initial outing with the Mk47, we brought it back to the lab and configured it with a few aftermarket parts.
“The Mutant takes a leap in the right direction of where we believe AR/AK mash-ups should be headed.“
“In terms of visceral enjoyment, the Mk47 is a thrill to shoot and a good-looking rifle to boot.“
