RAMS SUPERIOR Ak47 Saiga Vepr Rifle extended magazine release TACTICAL

Alternative Views:

Price: $32.95

Stock Status:


The RAM Tactical 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. This allows your strong hand to aid in rapid magazine changes.

The RAM Tactical 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 coated in a durable black powder coat. One fastening method will be included, an internally threaded screw type rivet.

Included with this product is:
1.RAM Tactical
2. Threaded rivet
3. Button head bolt
4. Lock washer
5. Insertion pin

Due to the variety of AK riles on the market and the slight variations between their manufacturing tolerances, the RAM Speed Catch is built slightly oversized in two spots.
1.The surface which rides over the rear magazine tab must be filed down during installation to correctly 'lock-in' magazines.
2.The stop on the back of the Speed Catch which contacts the inside of the catch tower must be filed down to orient the Speed Catch correctly.
In both cases, this filing will require about 1/16" of material to be removed. This 'file-to-fit' feature allows the RAM Speed Catch to precisely match your rifle and magazines.

This will work on the Saiga 223, 7.62, 308 rifles, the 410 and 20 ga. shotguns and all AK47's.

This will not fit the Saiga 12.
Please use the JT Engineering (JTE-EXTRL) or the RAM-S12XC for the Saiga 12.

5 of 5 Awesome upgrade but takes time... May 23, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
putting this on wasr required quite a bit of Dremel work and cutting especially on the back of the catch which i wasnt expecting. Definitley not a quick or "super easy" install. Getting the pin in once your done fitting the catch is another struggle in itself required 3 hands for me to line it up.. was definitley worth the hassle just take your time fitting it and it will turn out good. I wouldn't have been able to do this without a Dremel though

4 of 5 Mag Release September 29, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oxnard, CA United States  
This makes it a lot easier to actuate the release.
Extends the lever a little and is wider for easier
actuation of the release.
Filing to ensure proper fitment is very easy as long as you exercise patience and common sense.
