IPSC45 8 Posted December 8, 2017 Report Share Posted December 8, 2017 Tried getting some traction on the AKFiles site.....no response so far. Maybe you guys have some experience on this question. In my Saiga-to-AK conversion done some years ago, I opted to use the Tapco Intrafuse front handguard, as it allowed me a 922r compliance part and I didn't want to get involved in AK gas tube and retainer hardware issues for the "true" AK handguard conversion. The unit mounts on its front-end using a Tapco square mounting block....that is grooved on its inside and slips over protruding pins on the barrel. This is the version I'm talking about--> http://www.tapco.com/products/saiga-handguard-black.html My question.....this front-end mounting "block" is made of some kind of plastic. It contacts the barrel which can get very hot in a prolonged and intensive firing session. Can it melt? Have guys here have any personal experience with this happening? Thanks. .
