A new series of AR pistols and short-barreled rifles hit CMMG’s firearm lineup, offering consumers compact fun chambered in FN 5.7x28mm.
Sporting a 5-inch barreled BANSHEE model and 8-inch barreled PSB configurations, the new series falls under the Mk57 GUARD lineup. The Mk57 BANSHEE features a 5-inch barrel in either SBR or AR pistol configurations. The SBR variant ships with a Magpul MOE vertical foregrip paired with CMMG’s RipStock. The RipStock allows users to rapidly extend the stock without have to move a release lever. The BANSHEE in AR pistol form ships with a Gear Head Works Tailhook Mod2 brace.

The Mk57 Pistol offers an 8-inch barrel with CMMG RML7 M-LOK handguard and CMMG A2 Compensator. The design is topped off with a 20-round ProMag magazine and also works with FN Five-SeveN pistol mags. CMMG says the firearms all boast CMMG’s Radial Delayed Blowback system. The Radial Delayed Blowback system was created to decrease felt recoil by featuring a rotating bolt.
