MAGPUL MOE AK Hand Guard

Recommended Posts

MAGPUL should advertise this doesn't fit SAIGA's, the gas pistol cover doesn't fit over the piston, and the lower hand guard is only held in by friction and could come loose under battery....I called MAGPUL and told them it didn't fit, and they should ann

otate there catalog and I was told they would tell their supervisor and have a nice day, I wasn't impressed

You should have known it wouldn't fit without a lower handguard retainer.

As far as the upper handguard, what?  Are you trying to put it on a Saiga gastube?  Of course it doesn't work.

I didn't know, and found nothing in my research that said that.  

Ah, well shoot.  I'd have thought that the information would be out there somewhere.

This should be a good lesson for some people. A Saiga is not an AK as far as hand guards are concerned. You can add the correct AK parts to make AK handguard work. The only ones that will work with no additional parts or modifications are Saiga handguards. The Midwest Industries ones will work as they clamp to the barrel. If you want Magpul, the zhukov will work since it clamps on. (I can verify this as I just installed one on my 7.62 last night.) You will still need an AK gas tube to install the upper guard to.

 

While it is a bummer that you bought parts that won't just bolt on, it was in no way implied that they will work on a Siaga.
