Magpul PTS - AKM Masada

The Magpul PTS - AKM Masada is basically a ACR Masada with a different lower receiver that accepts AK looking magazines. The AKM Masada ships with upgraded accessories including an 11.5" Barrel and ACR Multi Folding Stock.

The AKM's lower receiver is different then the ACR's in that it takes proprietary 130 round, midcap, AK style magazines. The reason the magazines are proprietary is due to the AKM lower being interchangeable withe the ACR AEG. Hopefully soon, Magpul PTS will sell just the Lower Receivers, so owners of the ACR's and AKM's can swap out lowers to their personal preferences. If Magpul PTS designed the AK lower to work with TM Compatible AK Magazines, they would have had to redesign the entire AEG. Functionally there is no advantage running either ACR or AKM lowers. ACR's can use M4/M16 magazines from other manufacturers though.

Like the ACR, the AKM version has the quick change barrel and quick change spring system. All major body pins are captured and bolt lock is functional. Batteries are carried in the polymer foregrip and there's multiple sling and strap attachment points.

The AKM Masada shoots comparably to the ACR. We averaged 378 fps with .20 bb's
