If you haven’t heard of the Mk-47 Mutant built by CMMG, you’re probably living under a rock.

The Mutant promised to bring the smooth shooting accuracy and customization of the AR-15 platform to a harding hitting 7.62×39 firing rifle — it’s called the Mutant for a reason.

Not satisfied with just another rifle review, Grand View Outdoors decided to see how the Mk-47 stacked up against the Rock River Arms LAR-47 and a new school Kalashnikov AK-47. Bottom line, there’s a lot to like about both AR 7.62s, but don’t go throwing out your trusty AK just yet.
