In the gun world, there’re several acronyms thrown around regularly. You may hear somebody talking about CMMG, but what does that acronym mean?
In this article, Weapon Specialist will discuss one famous gun manufacturer in the US: CMMG.
What does CMMG stand for and feature some of their popular outcomes. So let’s read on!
What Does CMMG Stand For?
CMMG stands for Central Missouri Machine Guns. It is a gun manufacturing company founded by Jeff Overstreet and John Thomas in 2002.
The initial purpose of CMMG was to deliver good-quality AR rifles at a reasonable price tag for any shooter.
This company recently expanded its gun line to include AK-style and bolt action hunting rifles chambered in large bore calibers such as .338 Federal and .458 SOCOM.
Their MK47 Mutant model can interchangeably fire AR-15 and standard AK magazines without requiring modifications.
Over the past decade or so, this company has produced several AR-style rifles. Here are some of our favorites.
- The CMMG’s Mk47 Mutant: It is a rifle with two magazine kinds! It is compatible with proprietary polymer Magpul AK PMAGs and standard AK magazines.
- The CMMG’s MUTANT pistol series: Their design is based on the innovative MUTANT rifle but in the pistol configuration.
- The CMMG’s MkW ANVIL: It features all benefits and features as other rifles but has added compatibility to work well with standard AK magazines and proprietary polymer Magpul PMAGs with no special parts needed.
History of CMMG Company
Below, we will summarize the history of formation and development of CMMG to help you better understand this company.
Jeff Overstreet and John Thomas founded CMMG in 2002, and the initial purpose of this company was to provide good-quality AR rifles at a reasonable price tag for any shooter.
This time, the company was doing so well that the Overstreet brother could not keep up with the demand.
As a result, CMMG has begun to expand the facility, hire full-time workers, and manufacture products at a wide range of levels.
This year, the company created an engineering and design team to launch high-quality, innovative products to attract even more loyal customers.
They use high-quality materials and apply proven methods to create high-quality, durable, and reliable products.
The company then established a quality control team that ensures all parts exceed or meet CMMG’s expectations in terms of quality.
CMMG has released the first AR 22LR conversion kit used for the AR 15, and the kit has evolved over time.
This year, the company released the MK47, a breakthrough gun that has helped make CMMG one of the leading players in the AR market. This model has also won many awards for the company.
The company moved to a new position in Boonville, the Overstreet brothers’ childhood home, to address infrastructure issues.
The company began manufacturing guns, accessories, and parts at its new facility on October 24, 2016.
In April this year, CMMG launched a new, improved operating system called Radial Delayed Blowback.
CMMG has partnered with Mean Arms to release the 9mm AR Conversion Magazine, making it feasible to connect a CMMG 9mm.
Radial Delayed Blowback upper receiver with a mil-spec AR15 lower receiver.
The company continued to launch the 5.7 AR Conversion Magazine. In addition, it has given AR owners more accessible access to Radial Delayed Blowback.
Today, CMMG continues to strive to provide the highest quality products in the industry. So, we can expect to see the birth of their exceptional products in the future.
