The Mutant looks like a typical AR-15 type rifle until a magazine is inserted. The Mutant is actually a unique rifle that’s built to be a hybrid of the AR and AK platforms, chambered in 7.62x39mm. Rob presents the features of the Mutant, examines its hybrid parts and talks about likely uses for the Mutant, including use as a personal defense weapon or home defense weapon, hunting and as a patrol rifle for law enforcement.

    Ak is not particularly accurate in stock form. I would figure that this is a bit better in that regard, plus manipulation is easier in terms of safety operation and charging handle use from what it appears.

    Why not use an AK? Saw the advantages to the AR but I think I missed why it is better than an AKM 7.62x39

    .308 = 7.62x59? I'm like 99.99% positive you meant 7.62x51 but you had 39 on your mind so it came out 59

    I lost some interest that the bolt doesn't lock back. Like a pistol, I want to know when I am out, without having to pull the trigger and get a click instead of a bang.

    Wonder how this one compares to Robinson Arms XCRs. They seemed to have worked out a lot of those downsides you mentioned and are easy to convert to other calibers.

    That is the best explanation of this platform that i have seen anywhere, interesting combination. Thanks Rob

    Am I missing something here, as a member I don't seem to be getting any e-mails/videos and such. Am I doing something wrong to not receive any? Please reply.
