RAM Speed Catch - Extended Magazine Release for all AK47/74 including Saiga/VEPR

RAMS SUPERIOR Ak47 Saiga Vepr Rifle extended magazine release

Price: $36.95

Stock Status:


SPRING Not Included

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

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

Included with this product is:
1.RAM Speed Catch
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 RAM Catch March 2, 2024
Reviewer: Shawn Dugan from Willcox, AZ United States  
Like the instructions say, it requires fitting. Especially the part that engages the magazine lock tab. As long as you have the tools and the patience it will work very well.

This works fantastic. It does take the modifying like stated in the directions of install but with the spring installed it truly works awesome.

Reviewer: Brody Gragg from Palmer, AK United States  
If you’re good with a drill or have a drill press it’ll be no problem taking out the old catch and the new one just bolts right on

Reviewer: Nicholas Emerson from Houston, TX United States  
I really like the mag release but would recommend buying the enhanced version with the standard thumb release as well. I’m going to buy and swap out for my extended mag release.
