Compatible with the Ultimak gas tube rail for optics mounting, the Zhukov Hand Guard redefines functionality for the modern AK platform.

Well made and reasonable straight forward figment.  Perfect for bringing the rifle into my style of shooting.  

There was an issue receiving the wrong item but one phone call fixed that with no more issues.
