Magpul ZHUKOV Handguard AK47/AK74
The Zhukov Handguard from Magpul offers a fully featured model that is well suited for the forearm of the AK47 and AK74. The Handguard itself addresses the issues that are common with the factory version and makes great improvements thanks to the extended option for use with modern techniques in shooting.
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.
The unit is compatible with Ultimak gas tube rail, so you can mount optics with ease and not interfere with the functioning of the Handguard itself There is little doubt that the Zhukov Handguard represents an advancement in technology and functionality that makes a clear and noticeable improvement for the AK platform.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Magpul ak zhukov handguard fits like a gloves
I was tired of the old pic rails I had on my Ak, so after some research, I found this rail system. I love everything about it. The hardest part was cutting the sling point off. But with all that being said, I would recommend this to anyone looking for an Ak upgrade.
I am still buying Magpul for all my ak's and ar's . This one went on my 20 1/2 " vepr in 7.62x54r looks badass now . All done in Magpul FDE . Had to grind out aluim—clamps to fit larger barrels. The Hogue fde grip matches perfectly.

Typical made in America Magpul quality. The handguard looks great. I’m actually using this on a kel-tec su16 and with a little work fits beautifully. I love Magpul parts and use them where ever I can. I dressed my gun up and added a lot of versatility.
Magpul Zhukov handguard is High Quality
Perfect fit for my WASR-3. It makes it look like it is worth something! The long hand guard has a finely finished aluminum heat shield that bolts to the barrel and fits snugly. You will be glad you did.
