Magpul's AKM Handguard replaces the wooden handguard and gas tube cover on most stamped AK-47-style rifles in the same manner as the AK MOE handguard we've covered previously. It has molded M-LOK components for rails, grips or light mounts at the three-, six- and 12-o'clock positions in a manner similar to the AR-15 handguards. Adding accessories to your AK-47-pattern rifle has never been easier.

The Zhukov-S stock we reviewed a while back was easy to install on my home-built Romanian AK-clone. The hardest part was getting the original Romy buttstock off; getting the new stock on was a breeze. It's a safe bet installing the handguard will be equally simple, and the AKM handguard is specifically relieved to allow for the sling loop on the original hardware to be retained.
