First Look: CMMG Mk47 Mutant

The CMMG Mk47 Mutant features uniquely designed upper and lower receivers manufactured from 7075-T6 billet aluminum. Its receivers are engineered to manage the dimensions and pressures of the tapered 7.62x39mm cartridge without adding excess weight  — coming in at slightly over 7 pounds unloaded.


A carbine-length direct impingement gas system cycles the action, while a 16.1" free-float barrel with a 1:10 twist is threaded with a CMMG SV brake or A2 compensator (depending on configuration). Derived from an AR-10 bolt carrier group, the Mk47's bolt face maintains a beefy size even though the overall length of the carrier is shortened to eight inches. The upper also includes a full length rail and CMMG's RKM KeyMod Hand Guard.

cmmg_mk47_mutant_1The lower receiver of the Mk47 accepts existing AK47 magazines, and an ambidextrous magazine release system is familiar with traditional AK47 controls. AK-style features pair with AR-15-style controls on the lower receiver with an AR-style pistol grip, safety selector and trigger group. Lower components also include a collapsible Magpul CTR stock attached to an AR-15 buffer tube.
