Increases Accessory-Mounting Options; Improves Weapon Control & Appearance
Snap-on replacement for factory handguard solves two common AK problems by providing much-needed rail space for accessories and improving the weapon’s appearance by replacing a dinged and scratched factory wood handguard. Picatinny rails at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions give the operator exceptional flexibility in mounting lights, lasers, vertical grips, bipods, and other tactical gear. Top and side rails can be removed when they’re not needed, and a sliding panel conceals the integral bottom rail when it’s not in use to protect the support hand from abrasion. Molded-in grasping ridges and a textured surface ensure a secure hand-hold for superb weapon control that aids in quick target acquisition and fast follow-up shots. Six slots in the upper half provide air circulation to help cool the barrel, while an internal aluminum shield and extra-thick handguard walls protect the hand from barrel heat, especially during rapid or full-auto fire. Durable, impact- and heat-resistant reinforced molded polymer construction stands up to hard use and comes in black or Dark Earth. Counts as one compliance part for purposes of Section 922(r) of U.S. Code Title 18.
