Mossberg Ak47, sign me up! (Photo: Jim Grant)
O.F. Mossberg and sons announced several new products on the opening day of SHOT show 2015, including a rimfire AK-47 look alike. Dubbed, the Blaze, it comes in two variants. The first features a traditional hunting style stock while feeding from a removable, ten-round magazine while the second is designed as a rimfire AK47 facsimile named the Blaze 47.
All Blaze rifles use polymer furniture, and the standard model is available in four different color variations: Muddy Girl, Wildfire black synthetic and Kryptic Highlander.
vBoth Blaze 47s ship with an extended, 25-round magazine that features a windowed body, and follower with loading assistor attached.

Additionally, all models include an adjustable, green fiber-optic rear-sights and fixed front sight posts. The front sight posts are part of a barrel shroud secured to the barrel with an allen screw.
The most noteworthy feature among all Blaze rifles is how light they are; the traditional models are under four pounds and the militaristic ones under five.
Neither an MSRP or release date was given, but these models will likely hit shelves later this year.

Finally, an AK that will jam. Seriously, are these built like AK's or do they come with kid gloves?

The Blaze 47s all have pistol grips making them a no go in New York Sinkhole.

The new Blaze 22LR semi autos look interesting. The black synthetic has an msrp of $187 so they should retail for less than that.

Mossberg has been making ak barrels for a little while now, they are regarded as being pretty decent for us made. That is the only comment I can make at this time.

If it's in the fine quality of the Mossberg 715 I'll pass . No offense Mossberg lovers ( I do own three that I like. ) but compare the 715 to the S&W 15-22 no contest but I'am glad to see more and more firearm manufactures coming out with new products hope there's some quality there !

Loads of AK's at the Shot Show. I think Mossberg should stick to shotguns and the MVP line after handling the Mossberg 22AK. Also handled the new Magpul AK stock and hand guards line and I'm not impressed at all.

I guess if you have to have a gun that looks like an AK...then...but, what's the point?
