Product Description

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 treated in a Melonite QPQ process for corrosion resistance and toughnessTwo 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 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.

  1. Good buy 4 Star Review

    Takes some getting used to, and you have to do some fitting, but that is the case with most AKM parts. Overall, great product.

  2. Must Have!! 5 Star Review

    I love this mag catch! I am so happy I bought one for each of my rifles. Installation was easy enough and the rivet that must be flared is the way to go. I tried flaring a traditional one and finally gave up and bought this kit. The fit is phenomenal because you just dremel off the excess. I highly recommend this. My metal mags now fit like a glove instead of wabbling to the point of causing failures to feed.

    WHen I received the RAM S12XC Mag Release Extension, I was very skeptical about the amount of work that needed to be done and how I could figure out how to do it. At first, the instructions seemed a little confusing, but once I had the old Mag Release off and compared it to the new one. At that point, the instructions became clear and I was easily able to see what needed to be done and how. The great thing is that if you take a little time and trial fit it at each step, you can make it fit your specific requirement!!!
