Adaptive Magnetic Magazine Release For Ak-47 Style Rifle
Article first appeared at Ammo Land.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The original idea for the AK H.A.M.M.R. was inspired by the lack of practical magazine release tools in the AK market.
We feel that part of the reason the AK platform has stagnated in California is due to the hindrance provided by AK magazine locks.
The AK H.A.M.M.R. was developed as an enhancement for AK-47 style rifles. AK H.A.M.M.R. stands for “AK Hybrid Adaptive Magnetic Magazine Release.” The hybrid designation comes from the fact that the AK H.A.M.M.R. can be used as a semi-permanent magazine release enhancement when used outside of California, or simply as a bullet button tool for California based AK owners.
The AK H.A.M.M.R is adaptive in that it can adapt to many different AK platforms as well as several bullet button (magazine lock) styles.
Rare earth magnets are installed for California shooters that often travel out of state to shoot–allowing the shooter to operate the AK as it was intended without removing the CA required bullet button (magazine lock). The rare earth magnets have enough holding power to keep the AK H.A.M.M.R in place even after multiple magazine changes and strings of rapid fire.
The AK H.A.M.M.R is manufactured with a hole on the “paddle” end the tool that can be used to secure the AK H.A.M.M.R. to some type of retention device—as simple as a piece of paracord or a basic lanyard, always keeping the tool within arms reach.
Set screws come factory installed so that non-California residents may install the AK H.A.M.M.R. as a semi-permanent magazine release enhancement for increased leverage and improved ergonomics during magazine changes. The included set screws also allow the AK H.A.M.M.R. to adapt to the varying thicknesses of magazine release levers.
