Default Wolf 9x39 AR upper

I totally missed this from Shot Show, but Wolf already has the 9x39 ammo ready and supposedly will have barrels and complete uppers.



Says it will run with any AR lower and says it uses any AK47 magazine. Well, then it can't run on an AR lower can it?

I have some cash ready to pick up some ammo and maybe an upper when they come out. AK builder said they are considering making a 9x39 AK barrel. If that happens sooner I'll skip the AR upper, but I do want something in this caliber.

That being said, I would honestly be shocked if this worked well with 7.62x39 mags. Every Russian mag in this caliber is almost straight, very close to a 5.56 mag or 5.45 mag. 9A-91 mags are completely straight.. I don't think they would have tooled up to make 9x39 Groza, AK9, SR-3, VSS/AS Val and 9A-91 mags if they had millions of 7.62 mags around that worked fine with the round.

Yeah the mag thing is confusing. Is this actually 9x39 or another civilian knockoff?

Gotcha. That is what I figured but I thought 7.62x39 mags didn't work with 9x39. Maybe Wolf figured something out that does work in AR lowers?

He never said ak mags, he said 7.62 mags.

CPD Gen III Stainless mags, I've got several for the few AR builds I did in 7.62x39.

Looks like they may have designed their own with the same 7.62x39 curve in the AR mag design.

That thing is fugly... the only thing it could have going for it is cheap subsonic ammo...

Otherwise it’s not much more than .300 blackout...

I'd definitely do a 9x39 AK but I would still likely get the AR upper as well

Looks like a great addition for that ks47 of mine. So I just need a special barrel and slap it on a ks47 upper?

Actually do something useful and helpful Wolf.

Tell Barnaul to produce super and sub .300 BLKOUT steel cased ammo.
