M+M Industries M10X Hybrid Rifle

dsc05256

M+M Industries’ M10X is a bit of a hybrid, borrowing design aspects from the AK-47, AR-15, and FAL. Externally it looks most like an AK, but it sports many modern touches — monolithic upper receiver, floated barrel, AR-style ambi safety, ambi charging handle, adjustable gas valve, 5/8-24 barrel threads, hinged lower so the rifle opens up like an AR, and 95% of its parts are black nitrided. Speaking of parts, it has even less parts than an AK-47. Oh, and it’s 100% made in the USA from US-made parts. T&E request has been made. More photos follow . . .

    I’m in! I have a m+m 762 and its awesome. I am confident this will be a good one too.

    What’s the parts it borrows from a FAL?

    1. avatar Omer Baker says:

      The stock looks FAL to me. Other than that, I’m not sure, I’m not that familiar with FALs.

      1. avatar syms says:

        The stock is the Magpul Zhukov stock for the AK. I’m missing the FAL part too, but I’m also not too familiar with the FAL

      2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

        Possibly internals. It isn’t all AK inside there. The trigger pack is, but I believe the bolt and carrier and recoil spring system and such are unique. Plus the adjustable gas block is something the FAL had.

    2. avatar pwrserge says:

      Breakdown looks FALish…

      To be fair, it’s closer to a modernized 550 series in 7.62×39.

    3. avatar BillC says:

      Maybe the gas system. The FAL has a nice gas adjustment system.

    Reciprocating charging handle directly on the bolt carrier – lightweight, simple, serves as the charging handle, the foward assist, and the case deflector. No extra chunk of metal, no shenanigan mechanism, no weird malfunction

    A worthy trade off

      Leghorn is gonna hate it though and he is the most likely candidate for the review.

      Edit: I was wrong, it looks like Joe Grine will be reviewing it as per his comments below.

      1. avatar Joe Grine says:

        Nope. I’ve this one… review in the works

      2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

        I had secured one for review from M+M but it looks like JG has been playing with one for a while already. His is the Elite and I was going to borrow a Zhukov, but other than the stock I’m not sure what differences there are. If there are enough of them I’ll go ahead and borrow the Zhukov still, but if it’s just furniture I may pass. Either way, JG always does amazingly comprehensive and fair reviews and I’m looking forward to reading it myself!

        1. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

          i’ll try too, but i may need some assistance.

  4. avatar Joe says:

    Can anyone recommend a good, cheap 7.62×39 platform? (besides SKS…looking for something more modern). I’m tired of AR15s and like to get something to feed with cheap 7.62×39. Most AKs are $700+

    Is there a good alternative?

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      Zastava m70 gets my vote. You can also go with a WASR.

    2. avatar ShaunL. says:

      I love my CZ2008.

      They can still be found at reasonable prices but they aren’t exactly modern.

    3. avatar PooperScooper says:

      Saiga sporter, unconverted.

    4. avatar MLee says:

      @ Joe
      I have to concur with Vhyrus. Any of the Zastava line of AKs would serve you well. Atlantic has the Zastava N Pap and I would like to get an O Pap.

      1. avatar Joe says:

        Thanks everyone

    5. avatar Crowbar says:

      Century Arms pap 90 in 7.62×39 for 589ish on grab a gun. It is a full size AK, not a pistol.

    6. avatar int19h says:

      Vz 2008. It completely subsumes SKS in that it lets you use stripper clips, but is otherwise shorter and lighter, and generally handles better than AK.

  5. avatar 16V says:

    Not sure how you shrink the parts count on an AK platform, but congrats if they did it.

  6. avatar Vhyrus says:

    Depending on the price I may get one.

  7. avatar David says:

    $1200 msrp on their website.

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      If I can get it around 900 I’m sold, assuming reviews are good.

    2. avatar Palpatine says:

      Where did you see that?

      The only price I saw on their (mobile) website was $1550-$1600 for US or Cali versions via online purchase to your dealer.

      They aren’t yet listing the Zhukov version for sale, just the Elite (non-folding stock)

  8. avatar Nynemillameetuh says:

    I want this to succeed but have a nagging feeling that it won’t measure up.

    1. avatar Xanderbach says:

      Same. I also want to see a review of it- I have a feeling it may end up a bit of a rarity in a few years, unless they can bring the price down.

    2. avatar Joe grine says:

      Review in the works. Spoiler alert- its extremely accurate. My best three shoot group is one ragged hole at 50 yards.

    3. avatar A Hill says:

      I believe some are trying to get it brought into Canada, it is not exactly guaranteed but it isn’t a definite no either so it will likely be successful here if it can be imported.

  9. avatar josh says:

    So still needs a dust cover, then it’s pretty much an American Ak5c .

  10. avatar BillC says:

    I’m in if it’s less than $1k and if it’s lighter (even by a little) than my Ruger SR556, unloaded of course. Because of that heffalump, I built regular DI AR15 SBRs.

  11. avatar Stve says:

    It was shown off at Shot 2015. They’re a number of vids on it out there. It really looks like the stole the 7.62 version of the Sig 556, not that that’s bad. Looks cool.
