Similar to the original Mk47 MUTANT design, these new rifles are built around the 7.62x39mm caliber and feature a shortened AR-10 sized bolt carrier group that is paired with a unique upper and lower receiver to minimize weight and increase ergonomics.
One of the primary benefits of the Mk47 design is its ability to accept existing AK magazines and drums.
The new Mk47 models come equipped with KRINK muzzle device. These new KRINK models include the Mk47 AKS8 AR Pistol, Mk47 AKS8 SBR (short-barreled rifle) and Mk47 AKS13 rifle.
“Our KRINK-style muzzle-brake design was derived from an AK, which we modified to thread on standard AR threads. It serves as a booster, flash suppressor, blast reducer, and reduces recoil slightly,” said Tyson Bradshaw, Engineering Manager at CMMG.
The Mk47 AKS8 SBR (all NFA rules apply) has an 8-inch barrel with a 9-inch RKM KeyMod Handguard, a Magpul CTR Buttstock and Magpul MOE Pistol Grip. It comes with a CMMG single-stage trigger and one Magpul AK PMAG.
