Price: $49.95

SPRING Not Included

The RAM Enhanced Speed Catch is a direct replacement for the standard magazine catch on AK-47 style firearms. It is ergonomically designed to allow rapid actuation by your trigger finger without removing your hand from the pistol grip and has small pads so the catch can be used in the traditional manner. This allows your strong hand to aid in rapid magazine changes.

The RAM Enhanced Speed Catch is precision lasercut from 16 gauge sheet metal and then formed in a state of the art facility. It is then deburred, spot welded, and treated in a Melonite QPQ process for corrosion resistance and toughness. Two fastening methods are included. One is a deformable rivet and the other is an internally threaded rivet. Both are low profile, blackened, and easy to install. Use the one that you like better.

5 of 5 Most functional upgrade yet October 25, 2021
Reviewer: Jordan from Florida  
If you really train with your AK, this is a highly valuable upgrade for your rifle. The stock paddle that is on every AK I've put my hands on doesn't easily allow you to work with both hands while working an emergency reload. This will allow you to do that quite easily. A sanding belt is the best tool for filing down the main piece to the size needed.

5 of 5 Your AK needs this release! July 1, 2021
Reviewer: Mark C. from Swanton, MD United States  
This is an excellent upgrade to your AK.  You can use your trigger finger easily to release the mag, or still use your off hand to release it with your thumb (with extra leverage from the extension vs. stock). If you do install this, there is a very simple method for filing down the release to match your AK.  Use an old metal mag (or poly if you don't have one) that you know feeds reliably.  Before you take off the stock mag release, place the mag in the gun and score the mag with a scribe along the bottom edge of the receiver. (Preferably done with a full mag hanging vertically, but this is not that critical).   Use the line you scored on this same magazine when filing down the contact point between the new CSS release and the magazine to match the contact point of the stock mag release when compared to where it sits in the receiver.  I love this upgrade.  Bravo Zulu, CSS!
