Magpul’s Extended AK47/AK74 Handguard


Magpul’s Zhukov Handguard is designed to offer more options for AK shooters.

“The Zhukov Hand Guard casts aside traditional AK forearm shortcomings and offers an extended option for modern shooting techniques,” according to Magpul officials.

The Zhukov features an aluminum chassis for strength and heat dispersion, a comfortable injection molded exterior for superior ergonomics, and M-LOK slots for attaching accessories.


It’s compatible with the Ultimak gas tube rail for optics mounting. Installation requires removal of the hand guard retainer.

The Zhukov retails for $100 but is on sale here for $95.
