Comfortable and sleek replacement of the standard wood or plastic hand guards for the AK-type rifles. The hand guard extends by 4 inches past the standard AK hand guards allowing for more shooting stance options. The cooling holes allow the rail to run cool, even after extended firing and will not be effected by heat the way wood or plastic hand guards are. Machined from hardened aircraft aluminum with stainless steel components. The hand guard is designed to be used with both stamped and milled receiver AKs which use a standard length hand guard and the sling mount on the hand guard retaining band.
