AC-Unity Quad Stack 60 Rd. 7.62×39 AK Magazine

A Bosnian company, AC-Unity, is bringing a quad stack magazine for 7.62×39 AKs to the US market. The 60 round capacity magazine features polymer construction with a clear window running down the length of the magazine and metal reinforced front and rear locking tabs (no reinforcement in the feed lips). The follower design locks the bolt to the rear on empty and the manufacturer claims the magazine will be impact resistant.

The AC-UNity Quad Stack magazine weighs 12.35 ounces unloaded and around 3 pounds loaded (depending on the type of ammo) which is significantly less than a 75 round drum magazine. The retail price will be around $80.

Initial reports have indicated that there may be some length of break-in period for the magazine. At least one very early test indicated some follower binding that seemed to improve with use.

AC-Unity has a basic website that is still under construction. These are already available for pre-sale at a handful of retailers.

Sneak Peek: RS Regulate AKOT

RS Regulate will release their newest AK optic mounting option later this week. The AKOT is a compact ACOG (TA50 and similar) upper optic mount for the RS Regulate AK-300 series mounts.

The image below (courtesy of Instagram AK guru hizzie_biscuits) shows the new AKOT in comparison with the AKOG upper mount which is intended for use with full size ACOGs. The AKOT is considerably more compact and weighs in at just 1 ounce.

1 Shot AK Magazines/Bottle Openers from Bad Element Co.

Bad Element Co. is like the AK Magazine Whisperer. He can massage a roughly machined piece of ComBloc steel into a work of art but sometimes the mags are a little too rough to coax anything out of them… Anything except maybe the worlds coolest bottle opener.

Every once in a while, Bad Element Co. turns tired old magazines that would otherwise be relegated to the trash bin into bottle openers. They are basically cut down to a size that you could almost consider carrying as a key chain and modified so that the spring, follower, and baseplate can be re-installed. Then a split ring is added so you can attach some keys. You use the feed lips to pry off the bottle caps with ease (it works, you can test it with your regular AK mags right now… go ahead).

The best part is that these bottle openers still work as a magazines! They will hold 1 round, lock into your AK, feed, and fire.

You can check out Bad Element Co. at their website. If you want one of these very limited bottle openers, your best bet is to watch their Instagram page for when they are available or get in touch directly.

CDM Gear BC47 AK Light Mounts – Now Available

The CDM Gear BC47 AK Light Mounts, that we recently gave you a sneak peek about, are now available.

These light mounts clamp to the barrel and provide a flashlight ring for for use with a 1″ diameter light. Their anti-rotation design ensures that they can not spin on the barrel and they have a hole to accommodate the cleaning rod.

There are two models available. The BC47-1 positions the light below the bore axis which may be more comfortable for those using a vertical grip. The BC47-2 places the light above the bore axis which may be more comfortable for those without a vertical grip.

Check out the BC47 Light Mounts at CDM Gear.

AK Master Mount – No Mod, No Gunsmith AK Side Rail

If you have an AK that does not have a factory installed side rail for optics mounting, you may think you are limited to rear sight or gas tube based optics mounts. Maybe not…

The AK Master Mount touts itself as, “The “no mod” solution for those that want classic side mount optics on their AK styled rifles without a factory side rail.  This proprietary side rail can be attached in minutes, without permanent modifications, or the need for a gunsmith.”

It mounts via supplied pins that pass through the AK’s trigger and hammer holes in the receiver. AK Master Mount states that installation is easy, that the rail is solid and parallel to the bore, and that the shepherds crook is no longer required which is a nice bonus. The AK Master Mount accommodates a wide selection of receiver types including several milled and stamped varieties.
