New from Rock River Arms: LAR-47 (AR-15 in 7.62×39 That Takes AK Mags)

Rock River Arms is showing off their LAR-47 rifle. It’s built on a brand new lower receiver designed to take AK-47 7.62×39 magazines and fire them in a 7.62×39 upper. Make the jump (and ignore the shoe) and I’ll lay some specs on you…

7.62×39 16 inch chrome lined heavy barrel, 1:10 twist

  • Billet A4 upper and billet lower
  • Chrome lined 7.62×39 bolt carrier group
  • RRA Delta Brake muzzle brake
  • RRA Two stage trigger
  • Ambidextrous AK-style magazine release
  • RRA Delta stock and Delta pistol grip
  • RRA 2-piece quad rail
  • 7.75 lbs / 36.5 inches

The LAR-47 looks and feels like a damned solid gun. If it works as well as it looks we might have a winner on our hands – especially for those looking to jump from an AK to the AR family of firearms.
