CMMG Announces New Mutant Models, The Mutant SBR, Mutant California Compliant Version And The Pistol TFB Just Reviewed

CMMG Inc.

As you readers know Patrick just wrote a review of the new CMMG Mutant pistol. The other models which include the SBR with a 10 inch barrel as well as a California Compliant model. This is sure good news for those living in California. Heaven only knows what hoops they had to jump through to accomplish that!

I have been working with CMMG and their marketing manager over the last month or more to review both the pistol and California model and release these reviews at the same time. We had a glitch and were unable to get the California model in time for Tom R. to review it before the announcement.

The good news is we have a California Compliant model on the way which we’ll review and post as soon as possible. We are also working on bringing you a review of the SBR Mutant. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the SBR!

Now let me share the press release from CMMG which provides further details on each gun.

 

CMMG EXPANDS THE MK47 MUTANT LINE

 

CMMG’s Mk47 MUTANT has been the most talked-about rifle of 2015. Built around the 7.62x39mm caliber, the MUTANT features 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. After thorough review and testing by the foremost rifle experts in the industry, the Mk47 MUTANT has earned a solid reputation as the ultimate mid-sized AR rifle.

 

Today, CMMG has announced the addition of an AR pistol and a short-barreled rifle (See NFA Regulations) version of the MUTANT, as well as the availability of California compliant versions of the three original MUTANT rifles (Mk47 T, Mk47 AKM and Mk47 AKM2).

 

The new Mk47 K Pistol and Mk47 K SBR utilize many of the same features as the full-sized rifles, including the ability to accept AK magazines and drums, a shortened AR-10-sized bolt and CMMG’s SV Brake. Each firearm has a CMMG single stage trigger, a 10-inch medium taper barrel and a CMMG RKM9 KeyMod™ hand guard.

CMMG has also added additional models of its original Mk47 line-up that will comply with California’s 10-round magazine capacity and bullet-button standards.

  • Michael Acuna

    Call me when they make a side charging model

    • iksnilol

      It would be the WAK (Western AK).

      • itsmefool

        Dude, now that’s WAK!

    • USMC03Vet

      Easily the funnest part about an AK.

  • michael escamilla

    Is that a 5.45 mag in the press photo???

    • I don’t believe so.

    • Martin Grønsdal

      Looks like a bakelite mag

    • Squirreltakular

      I don’t think so, but my hopes were definitely gotten up for a second.

    • kalashnikev

      No, it is not.

  • Joe

    I would be very interested in;
    MK 74 in 5.45×39 that feeds from AK 74 mags
    MK 103 in 5.56×45 that feeds from AR mags
    MK 300 in .300 BLK that feeds from AR mags

    Why? Because I believe the bolt design on this rifle to be far superior to a standard AR-15 Bolt. Think about the potential bolt longevity of this rifle in 5.56. Does anyone know if CMMG does HPT/MPI testing on all of thier bolts? Or if thier carriers are made of 8620 steel? Or if the bolts are Carpenter 158?

    • There’s definitely still a market for MK-74, especially if they re-engineer the lower to use “normal” uppers with slight mods for mag clearance. You don’t have the same need for an ultra-beefy bolt like you do with 7.62×39.

  • WASR Warrior

    California model that only accepts vepr magazines? I’ve seen a mk47 here in state , am i lucky?

  • Jolly

    NO I DONT WANT ANY DASANI SPARKLE!

  • kalashnikev

    10″ is a little on the short side… I would like to see 12.5″ similar to AMD-65 length.

  • Esh325

    For a combat rifle, I don’t think I would ever trust a 7.62×39 AR over an AK. Galil ACE is better. I wonder why they couldn’t have a BHO and bolt catch? The AK-12 I believe takes standard magazines and has a BHO and BHO.

    • Joshua

      Have you used any of these rifles to quantify something as “better”?

      As for the 7.62×39 AR they are fine when built like this.

      The issue with 7.62×39 being run in the AR platform is when it is used in the AR-15 with a bolt that has had the bolt face opened up to work with the 7.62×39. An AR-10 bolt doesn’t have these issues.

  • Some Guy

    Am I the only one that wants someone to put an ARAK upper on one of these lowers?

    • Dracon1201

      Wish you could.

      but sadly it’s impossible.

  • tony

    that scope is worth more than the car that I drive

    • Michel_T

      I know the feeling… but on the up-side, spending $$ on gun stuff isn’t all that bad. Since gun stuff usually have better resell value than car stuff 😉

  • DrewN

    Huh. I wonder if you could get 6.5 grendel to feed in one of these.

  • john huscio

    Seems like cmmg could compete with IWI in offering newfangled 7.62×39 platforms to ak-using governments in Latin america, Africa and the middle east….

  • Justin

    I wish they would add a forward assist.

  • Blake

    Would be very interesting to see a comparison between this, PTR-32, & SIG 556R.

  • no

    Why is this article stickied at the top of the blog?

  • itsmefool

    Love that red idea!
