Price: $29.95

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. Two fastening methods will be 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.

Included with this product is:
1.RAM Tactical
2.Standard rivet
3.1/4" ball bearing (to assist in deforming the rivet)
4. Threaded rivet
5. Button head bolt
6. Lock washer
7. 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 Perfect fit, great function! September 27, 2021
Reviewer: Robert S. from NC  
Pretty simple replacement, once you figure out the spring orientation and have your receiver well-braced. Functions just as a mag release should and a great upgrade without changing the “manual of arms.”

5 of 5 Take Your Time August 23, 2021
Reviewer: Deron Frederickson from Spring, TX United States  
If you have to "manipulate" the shape of the lever, as I did, to make it fit - take your time!

I had to grind down the humps on the back of the  lever (had to flatten them out)...where the pin holes are...to make it fit my WASR.  I also had to take a little off the top as per the instructions.

BUT, once I got it shaped correctly - it works tons better than the lever that was on there.  I had failure to feeds with every mag i put in the gun I got when I bought it.  They all work flawlessly now, and the wobble is significantly reduced.

Have no complaints with the product, and fully expected to have to do some tweaking to get it to fit.  It is working perfectly and have no plans to change it out.
