CMMG has announced the addition of short-barreled rifle and AR pistol versions of its MK47 MUTANT. The Fayette, Mo.-based company unveiled the full-length 7.62x39mm MK47 at SHOT Show in January.
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, according to a CMMG press release.
"CMMG's Mk47 MUTANT has been the most talked-about rifle of 2015. Built around the 7.62x39mm caliber,” CMMG officials maintain.
Each firearm has a CMMG single stage trigger, a 10-inch medium-taper barrel and a CMMG RKM9 KeyMod hand guard.
The pistol version weighs 6 pounds, unloaded, is 26.5 inches long. It retails for about $1,500. The SBR version weighs 6.7 pounds, unloaded, and measures 27.5 inches long with its Magpul CTR stock collapsed. It retails for $1,630.
