You will need to remove the Handguard retainer in order to install this particular unit. The Handguard also features a chassis made from aluminum which adds much needed strength as well as an excellent heat dispersal effect to make it easier to hold the weapon when firing. You will also find an injection molded exterior which is very comfortable and ergonomically designed. The M-LOK® slots are a very well designed accessory attachment that helps complete the overall effectiveness of the Zhukov Handguard.
