Product Description

The RAM Tactical Catch is a direct replacement for the standard magazine catch on AK-47 style firearms.  It features a larger actuation surface with more leverage to release magazines.  Also, this is a larger target when knocking the empty magazine out with a new magazine.  Paddle dimensions:
  • Width = 0.9"
  • Height = 0.8"
The RAM Tactical Catch is precision lasercut from 16 gauge sheet metal and then formed in a state of the art facility.  It is then deburred and treated in a Melonite QPQ process for corrosion resistance and toughness. 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:
  1. RAM Tactical 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 Tactical Catch is built slightly oversized:

  • The surface which rides over the rear magazine tab must be filed down during installation to correctly 'lock-in' magazines.

 This filing will require about 1/16" of material to be removed.  This 'file-to-fit' feature allows the RAM Tactical Catch to precisely match your rifle and magazines.

  1. RAM Tactical Catch 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2021

    Just got my first AK and let me tell you this was one of the best 25 bucks spent. It's slightly wider and provides more surface area for my thumbs to depress and release the mag with out any thin sharp edges. The installation required some grinding and sanding but once installed it's night and day!

  2. Fantastic product and service. 5 Star Review

    Got this to replace the factory catch on my Zastava Zpap pistol. Install is painless with the included hardware. I really like the oversizing of the catch and general feel of it. Increased leverage due to its size dramatically reduces the push weight. Easy mag changes by hand or raking the new mag across.

  3. easy and affordable 5 Star Review

    Great mag release especially if your not a master gunsmith. I use it here in cali for my 7.62 saiga and it's a big help with rapid mag changes and looks just plain awesome.

  4. Awesome upgrade 5 Star Review

    I like this one the most compared to the other mag release parts on the market. Much easier to operate than the standard factory latch AND you can still rake it if you want. It's by no means an quick drop-in solution - be prepared to sand/grind it down to fit properly depending on what AK you have. Once it fits, it works very well!

  5. Great upgrade 5 Star Review

    Gives more leverage and it's good quality material. Definitely one of the most difficult pieces to replace, but not impossible. Just make sure you have a dremel handy. After filing and fitting, it works perfect with all my magazines, steel and poly. Highly recommend this upgrade

  6. BEST ON THE MARKET! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2013

    I am a USMC Combat Vet and I have always wanted to have an AK. I recently got mine and there are quite a few changes and upgrades needed to bring it to a realistic platform. I searched the web and after everything i saw this one is my personal favorite. It can be used from either hand, large enough for function, but small enough not to snag or be a problem. Some of the other mag catches on the market are cheap plastic or they dont work with both polymer and steel mags. This one works great with all the different kinds i have. I had to fit it to my AK and there was a little bit of filing, but if you take your time anyone can do it. GREAT PRICE AND WELL WORTH IT!
