Had a chance to spend a few moments with the folks at CMMG today at SHOT Show. The big news, of course, is the unveiling of the Mk47 rifle, a.k.a. The Mutant. It's an AR-15-style rifle chambered in 7.62x39 mm that takes standard AK-47-pattern magazines.

Shouldering The Mutant, it has an instantly recognizable look and feel to it, and the CMMG heritage is unmistakable. From the KeyMod handguard to the proprietary muzzle brake, it's obvious this new rifle has many touches inherited from the existing CMMG line.

CMMG has done a masterful job of integrating the AK-47's round and magazine into AR-15 guise. The company has made a number of improvements, such as a much larger bolt, to insure proper operation and long life. Look to Shooting Illustrated for more coverage of this new rifle in 2015.

MSRP: $1,499.95 to $1,849.95.
