The TEC47 Rifle By 21st Tec – AR10 Meets AK Mags

The First AR10(DPMS/LR308) to Chamber 7.62x39mm and Accept AK Magazines

Dallas, Georgia – 21st Tec® is proud to announce the release of the TEC47, a true AR10 (DPMS/LR308 size) rifle that melds the power of the 7.62x39mm cartridge with the precise engineering of the AR platform. Tailored for both enthusiasts and professionals, the TEC47 stands out by accommodating standard AK magazines, all while retaining the trusted and familiar components of the AR10 platform.

The TEC47 Rifle has a Direct Impingement gas system while featuring a 16-inch barrel with a 1/10 twist. Ensuring durability, its receivers are made from Billet T6 Aircraft Aluminum. The gas block is adjustable, catering to suppressor use, while controls remain standard with safe and semi modes. For the user’s comfort and customization, the TEC47 is equipped with a Mil-Spec buffer tube, a 6-position adjustable CCS Carbine stock, a THRIL RTG grip, and a 15-inch M-LOK handguard, integrated with a MIL1913 Rail.

The TEC47 has a weight of 8.5lbs and an overall length varying between 35 to 39 inches. The rifle comes with a 2 Stage Match Trigger and a Flash Hider with 5/8×24 muzzle threads. In terms of aesthetics and durability, customers can choose between two colors: Type III Hard Coat Anodized Black or FDE. The rifle includes a standard Magpul PMAG® 30 AK magazine, but it’s also compatible with regular metal AK47 magazines.

Central to the TEC47’s innovative design is its Bolt Carrier Group (BCG). While maintaining the DPMS/LR308 length, this BCG is specifically designed for the 7.62x39mm cartridge and AK magazines. To safeguard the upper receiver from cam pin wear, it includes a cam pin wear plate. This innovative combination guarantees dependable performance and preserves the versatility of the AR platform. Production of the TEC47 is in full swing, with shipping starting on September 29th, 2023.

MSRP $1399.

    T-charging handle with no LRBHO. I think I'd rather just get a Bren 2.

    I shot this at Triggercon. It took Russian mags, Chinese mags and Magpul. All locked up tight.
