Firm Blends AR-15 and AK-47 Rifles to Create New Mk47 'Mutant'.
I like that it takes standard AK47 mags while some maybe a issue most should work. I already have a dozen drums that will fit it.
I never liked the way the AK mags rotate in to lock but you learn to live with it.
Lot of new stuff introduced this year. Some of it old ideas with a new twist . That don't make it wrong
Seems this one will have other version also.

I like and own both rifles. I am a fan of classic wood AK variants and the AR is my primary gun because it's so versatile. For fun it's the AK for work and when things go bump in the night it's the AR. For more than 5.56/.223 in the AR it would be .300 AAC Blackout for me.

What brand of magazines will feed 7.62x39mm in an AR lower?
Watch the video the lower has been designed to take the AK mags it is a hybrid weapon the blending of both..
I own a few AK47's they are what they are . This is a better use of the round over all. AK47's are not as prefect as the legend would have you believe.
It maybe out of the price range of some, but the cost of the AK47 has also been going up to the point hey may no longer be such a deal.
No one weapon is right for everyone. it is interesting to see what they do with them.

Another blast from the past reinvented

The below, really not much more than a AK or AR mag, the advantage is in about 10 seconds you can change the upper right back to a 5.56 and pop in any old AR mag and keep running. personal thought its just more flexible than a gun that does not know wither it wants to be a AR or a AK. Not trying to bash smitty at all just does not make alot of since to me.

AR / AK both great platforms and both have draw backs. 38 years ago I had an AR but I sold it (had the fun switch) and now I've got a semi auto AK. Don't feel under gun now or then. IMO, it's all what you are comfortable with. Just practice and learn your weapon and you shouldn't have a problem with either.

this round is one of my fav's - here in Canuck land they are reasonably priced and its a great round for range, game, the whole gamut!

Interesting! I have both but want to keep them separate! I might be more interested if it was a piston system
but sounds like their DI works fine even very dirty. Price seems too high as well heck I can pick up 3 cheap AKM's right now
for the MSRP of the MK47. I did see 2 on gunbroker a little cheaper than MSRP.
