The year was 1993, and the summer sun was beating down on the black pavement with a vengeance. I had moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, and picked up a job in car sales. With the Speedway down the road, Charlotte was car country; it was gun country, as well. People loved their cars, and I loved making money off those people. I started pulling in money, hand over fist. It was the first job that provided me with lots of disposable income, rather than just making enough to get by, and I bought quite a few firearms that year.

I wet my feet in the 7.62x39mm world by buying my first SKS and a Maadi AK-47 that year and played around with them a bit. Maybe it was the snob in me or just the eccentricities of these weapons that put me off, but I never really developed an affinity for those two rifle styles.

The CMMG Mk47 Mutant is an AR-platform rifle that accepts AK-style magazines and fires the 7.62x39mm round.

However, that’s changed in the last several years as a result of quality offerings coming to the market now with various improvements, such as better trigger pulls, more rail options and so forth. Even so, I still hadn’t jumped into the AK life again, but it was getting tempting.

Both the mid-level and top-end models in the Mutant line include a Magpul MOE stock.

Then, along came CMMG. The folks there decided to introduce a new product with a twist: the Mk47 Mutant. It’s a rifle built on an AR platform but fires 7.62x39mm ammunition and accepts standard AK-47 magazines. It’s pretty much the best of both worlds.
