Magpul Zhukov-U AK47 / AK74 Hand Guard

The Zhukov-U Hand Guard shaves off 1.5" from the original Zhukov AK Hand Guard to accommodate shorter barreled rifles and pistols and keeps the front end of full length rifles a little more lively. The shorter version allows accommodation of military issue cleaning rods, so you don’t have to give that up to get the benefits of the Zhukov anymore! 

The Zhukov-U shares the same type of sturdy aluminum chassis as the longer standard Zhukov for strength and heat mitigation sheathed in a comfortable, injection molded exterior for superior ergonomics. It includes M-LOK® slots for accessory attachment, and is fully compatible with the UltiMAK gas tube rail.

  • Installation requires removing handguard retainer
  • 1.5” shorter than standard Zhukov hand guard
  • Fits stamped and milled AK-47 / AK-74 rifles with standard-length gas systems
  • Optimized for short barrel rifles such as AK-102, AK-104 and AK-105
  • Full-length aluminum chassis for strength and rigidity
  • Heat shield relieved to accept standard AK cleaning rod
  • Durable polymer outer hand guard
  • M-LOK slots for accessory attachment
  • Extended length for modern shooting techniques
  • Vented gas tube cover
  • UltiMAK compatible
  • Color: Black
  • Made in USA; gand fuard counts as one US compliance part for 922(r)

* Due to extended hand guard length, barrels less than 11.5" long are not recommended. Due to the wide range of tolerances of your typical AK, minor additional fitting may be required. Not compatible with Yugo pattern rifles or RPK style receivers.
