AK HAND GUARD GUIDE
Solo and Ion or the two types of AK hand guards. The are the same ID/OD just a different shape.
HAND GUARD LENGTHS for AK RIFLES
Generally on AK rifles the 13.5" handguards will end at front of front sight (16" barrel)
Generally on AK rifles the 11.5" hand guards will end up between gas block and front sight
(14.5" AK's will use 11.5" hand guards (hand guard will end a front of front sight)
Generally on AK rifles the 10.5" hand guards will end at front of gas block (standard length gas system)
Lite hand guards have no picatinny rails, just MLOK or Keymod full length sides and bottom
Mid hand guards have built in picatinny up front left and right with MLOK or Keymod behind rails and full MLOK or Keymod on bottom
"A"version hand guards have cut out for sling loop at hg retainer
"B" version hand guards have cut out for sling loop at gas block (Chinese,C39 rifle, RAS 47 rifle)
"S" version hand guards have no cut out for sling loops but still have relief for retainer in standard location
"M70" version hand guards are only for M70 and M70 variants
REMOVING the sling loop off your AK's stock hand guard retainer will allow the use of "S" version hg's (M70 types will need to remove the entire retainer)
SLR AK HG's under 9" generally don't use the A, B or S designations
The AK hg's require a mount to be selected during checkout (except Yugo/ Zastava are default included)
Mount types for each AK variation are listed in each hand guard listing
Sharps AK receivers use Mod 3 mounts on the Solo hand guards and the Sharps mount on Ion AK hand guards
SLR RAILED GAS TUBES
All AK hg's can be used with stock gas tube.
SLR Railed gas tubes are an option at check out, they must be used with SLR hand guards
Most 16" Ak's use our Full Length railed gas tube
(Vepr Ak's and M70 AK's use their own type and we have options for those)
--SLR AK RAILED GAS TUBES CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY BY USING SEACH BAR AND TYPING IN "AK RAILED GAS TUBE"
--SLR AK HAND GUARD MOUNTS CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY BY USING SEARCH BAR AND SEARCHING "AK MOUNTS"
Sometimes there are odd combos of mounts and gas tubes that are not listed together with certain hand guard lengths. These combinations can be ordered by phone.
The list below is updated regularly so if your specific AK is not listed please email us at Sales@slrrifleworks and we can help you determine what combination of HG, Mount and gas tube can be used.
Micro Draco pistols and Century C39 Micro pistols use the AK 3.7" Handguards (pick the proper mount in the hg listing)
Micro AK's do not have a gas tube so there is no gas tube option
Mini Draco pistols can use either the AK 5" or 5.4" Handguards . The 5.4" HG will cover about 1/2 of the muzzle threads.
Mini Draco will use the SLR Mini Draco gas tube and Mod 1 mount
Draco Full size pistols use the AK 9" "A" version HG's , Mod 1 mount and SLR Draco gas tube
NAK 9 Pistol
NAK9 uses the AK ION 7.5" Lite MLOK HG.
The 7.5" HG ends about even with the front of the FSB.
The sling loop will need to be removed to use Handguard because its so close to the front end of the Handguard. If we kept the loop it protrudes right where your hand will rest and also eliminates the use of rail panels on one side .
The entire retainer can be removed but its only necessary to remove the loop portion.
Choose Mod 1 mount for NAK9
Choose NAK9 Railed gas tube option for the NAK9 (not required)
M92 / M85 pistols use three hg lengths. (6.7" is by far the most popular)
AK 5.4" hand guards are direct drop in no mod required
AK 6.7" hand guards will require hand guard retainer removal (retainer on these are larger than AKM types and are actually larger OD than our hg's) . AK 6.7' hg's stop just short of sling loop on M92
AK 7.1' hand guards require retainer removal and slight trimming of sling loop on FSB. 7.1 HG's go all the way to the front of the FSB.
AK 7.1" hand guards are the preferred choice for M85 pistols
Choose the SLR M92 gas tube option if you want the railed gas tube.
Choose the SLR M85 gas tube if using a M85
M92/M85 hg's mounts are default included so if using a M92/M85 no mount option is reqiured
M70 Rifles and M70 variants
M70 rifles use the default Yugo mount so no mount selection is required
M70 rifles use specific hand guards that end in "M70"
M70 rifles use the SLR M70 railed gas tube
