Here’s an interesting rifle - the CMMG Mutant. There have been 7.62x39mm AR rifles for quite some time - this rifle is not one of them. Two key features separate the Mutant from everything else. First and most noticeable, the Mutant accepts standard AK-47 magazines with no modification. Second, the rifle resembles and AR-10 that is scaled down to fire 7.62x39mm - a much more robust design than trying to scale up an AR-15.
Being an AK guy - I dig this one. Being able to take a rugged, well used AK mag and rocking it into the new, machined well engineered gun has a nice feeling. It’s unique, built well, and fun to shoot! The brake is a bit much but is definitely worth the space in the safe.
Have one and trying to figure out how to sling it? Here is my setup:
The gun is surprisingly light for its size so I went with unpadded Vickers Sling and Gray is just a cool sling color. The back of the sling fit through the slot on the CTR stock and attaches with the two triglides.
For the front, I girth hitched a 6.25” UWL through the slot in the KeyMod rail. This creates an extremely lightweight attachment as I don’t have to purchase or install any other hardware onto the rail. It is also very quiet and flexible.
And yes, I know the BCM KeyMod grip is “backwards” - similar to an AMD-65 setup. It’s my rifle and I like it so…!
