RPK Bolt-On Lower Handguard Retainer
The RPK series of bolt-on retainers allow you to install a RPK lower handguard on your Saiga & Vepr rifles.
These are 100% steel! Aluminum loosens as the rifle heats up because it grows at a faster rate. Beware of cheap copies!
Use of an AK Gas Tube will allow you to use an upper handguard.
This part allows you to avoid having to press off the front sight block and gas block and not have to cut the locking lever notch in the barrel.
Also it's a great way to add U.S. made handguards for one additional compliance part. Install is simple, just tighten the two cap screws after the handguard is on and you are done. There is also a set screw for added bite. The orientation of the upper band to the lower is essential. Look for the I.D. stampings on the front face, they should face forward.
