The descriptions I've read for the product lead me to adding the CSS split style hand guard retainer http://www.carolinas...rge-bracket.htm to meet the requirement for installation ( and fill the cutout for the left side sling loop) but those same descriptions also warn that the part doesn't fit all variation(s) of AK.
Will the hand guard fit up to the receiver housing without modification?
I want to change up the factory handguard, but not if the aluminum one is going to require whittling away & losing any Troy support in the event that a crack or some such appears.
What sort of mounting hardware is used by this accessory (that the four button head screws thread into)? Is there a bracket that is held in place by the AK style h/guard retainer?
I tried to look up install doc.s at the Troy site, and even photos/image of the part on the greater online community but no joy when trying to find these answers.
