Product Description

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.
 
Included with this product:
  1. RAM Enhanced Speed Catch
  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 Enhanced 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 Enhanced Speed Catch to precisely match your rifle and magazines.

  1. Great mag release 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2015

    I have had one on my saiga 7.62 and on my Arsenal for years now and I just finished up a AMD-65 build and got one on order for it. Well worth the money also like that I can cut in down to fit the mags I like using for a perfect fit


  2. Best mag release out there!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2015

    Just installed the RAM Enhanced Speed Catch this past weekend on a PSL-54C. This rifles mag release was way too small for the tension the spring had. The RAM Enhanced Speed Catch solved that problem. I haven't had the chance to go to the range yet but I don't foresee any problem. Makes mag changes a lot easier, just push down on the tab with your trigger finger. Plus it looks great on the rifle. This weekend I'm installing one on my WASR 10 because I liked it so much on the PSL. Great product don't hesitate to buy.


  3. good quality replacement 5 Star Review

    I have been looking for an enhanced mag release for my ak47 for years. But all I found was bullshit plastic bolt on extensions. Thie is one piece construction and is very easy to install. Recommended for every ak owner I know


  4. excellent product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2013

    I just got done installing this on a WASR 10/63 that had the original mag catch filed down too much which caused FTF issues with a lot of mags because of front/back wobble..

    Once I got the spring situated (used the zip tie method) which was a PITA, the RAM Enhanced Speed Catch installed in minutes! As stated, it's larger than stock so I had to file the stop down a bit so the holes lined up and slightly touched the mouth and the rest is history..

    It's SO MUCH BETTER than the original catch, looks bad ass, speedy delivery, great quality, highly recommended addition to any AK.. Wish they had it for the SKS as well..


  5. Awesome!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2013

    The RAM Enhanced Speed Catch is just that, Awesome!!! I looked over every current extended/enhanced magazine release for the AK platform and by far this is the best in the market. It brings the convenience and ability to release the magazine with your trigger finger, left or right hand, while retaining a larger regular AK magazine release. It comes with two sets of hardware, rivet or screw, detailed instructions. Some minor filing or dremeling is required to properly fit it, but that is not that time consuming. Once installed it is solid and it improves the AK manual of arms 100%, great addition to my rifle and it is the only one I would recommend!!
