Mini ‘AK’ in .22LR: The LR-47 from MBGL — NRA 2024

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

At NRAAM 2024, we stopped by the Mountain Billy Gun Lab (possibly the coolest gun manufacturer name around) booth.

You’ll recall we got to see their mini .22 AR at a SHOT Show Range Day 2024. Our previous video showcased us firing this tiny marvel, and viewers loved it!

Now, we’re giving you a sneak peek at what’s coming next year.

Among the highlights is their latest innovation, the LR-47 —not exactly an AK-47, but it bears a resemblance. It’s also chambered in .22LR.

Currently, it’s a working prototype, and although we didn’t handle it, it’s impressively compact and quite striking.

Stay tuned for updates, and don’t forget to check out their website. Also, revisit our SHOT Show video to explore more of their products.

    I was impressed & interested until I saw it’s only a 5 or 10 round magazines? Why bother? I already have a couple of ArmaLite AR-7s that weighs about the same and I can get 15 round magazines. Maybe get another magazine design for this one? It’s still a good product but it’s not going to be popular with the 10 rounds. JMHO.

    If it’s anything like the .22lr “AR” they introduced this year, this will also be hard pass for me.
