Magpul MOE AK Handguard

In keeping with the rest of the new AK-47-pattern rifle accessories, here's the last piece of the puzzle.

Magpul's MOE AK Handguard replaces the wooden handguard and gas tube cover on most stamped AK-47-style rifles. 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 ridiculously 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.

Look to ShootingIllustrated.com for a future web article tying all these items together.

MSRP: $36.95. Available in black, Flat Dark Earth, Stealth Gray, OD Green and plum.
