Handset down, the best handgaurd, that I’ve purchased and installed! Installed effortlessly, on my Zastava M70, without any issues and is on there like a tank! Absolutely no adjustments and fitting needed, like a lot of other AK parts! If you want something that is high quality, extremely well made, and looks absolutely stunning...look no further! Do yourself a favor, and give these guys your business, you won’t regret it!
