"When I was having problems due to this mount I found several comments about it at the time (a few months ago) indicating it could be tightened too much to bind the piston. Now no reviews available. So I will post a review that it is very solid and nice and light but does cause problems if too tight and mine is not straight so telescopic mounted items have to have windage adjusted all the way to the left. Well worth about $50."

"Yes, you do have to be careful to not over-tighten the screws, else the operating rod won't work! Just back 'em off a tad, and the quad-rail system still is solid as a rock.The problem, though, is in the 'profile' of the rail-ends, I don't know what else to call it. When you look at a Pic rail head-on, the two sharp edges, about 0.835 inches apart, should be just that: sharp, like a side-leaning \"V\". The UTG edges are not sharp, they are more like a side leaning \"U\", and therefore bind with some added-on equipment. For example, an EoTech sight has a moveable clamp that locks on to the rail, so no problem. But nothing moves on a CAA vertical grip, so once installed on the rail (with a rubber mallet), it's there to stay, unless you grap the rubber mallet again."

"Its a really nice hand grip and installs very quickly. The most trouble I had really was getting the stock grip off the gas tube. It took a little tinkering with to get the exact tuning to fit the gast tube and barrel but this should be done with any guard set so that you know everything is sturdy. I would have to say this gives my WASR-10 a really mean look esspecially with the rubber handgrip. It gives a ribbed look and its pretty cool to see. I haven't yet mounted EoTech Sights but I do plan on putting them on my WASR-10. Ill give another review when I see if its effective. One thing I would also note is that the grip relies on the the handguard and gas tube cover to be screwed together to hold together but its a little tricky to get the right tuning as stated above so work the action to see it sticks."

"This is a quality piece that UTG has made for the AK47..This will fit any stamped Bulgarian SSR85C-2 AK47..For the money and the the quality you cannot go wrong..I prefer this deffinately over the surefire type handguard which you will pay maybe three times as much..Both are aluminum grade aircraft metal..It is a little tricky to install but once it is on the rifle it basically changes its appearance to look more meanier and heavy duty.I will recommend this to any one who has a similar AK."

"Installed mine in about 15 minutes with no problems. Use lock tite on the screws and do not over tighten them and it will fit rock solid. Defineitly a meaner look! Rock solid and a big improvement for any AK.These are hands down the finest forearms for AK's"

"Great looking handguard. I believe it is an excellent value. As previously mentioned I too had to grind down the inside of the top piece in order to keep it from pinching the gas tube. After the modification everything bolted together well. It also has a very snug fit. Removing the gas tube for cleaning will require an allen key once this is installed. This truly changed the look of my rifle to a more aggressive one."

"I put this bad boy on my romanian wasr-10. No joke it went in about fifteen minutes, with the bulk of that time being used to take of my wooden grips. The only problem is i cannot get my cleaning rod back in. Can anyone tell me why and how i can fix that?"

"I Want to start off by saying this is a great handrail. BUT!!!I Have a Bulgarian MILLED SLR95. I had to do some serious grinding and filing to this product. When I bought it and tried to fit it I was disapointed. Grind after grind file after file and about 8 hours of a dremel,two sizes of hand files, and a hacksaw. It Was looking good. After I installed it I WAS IN LOVE!If you looking for precision in optics and scopes this might not be for you. But I Was most interested in looks and comfort. After all the mods I was pleased in how it was as a study handrail. PLEASE BE CAREFULL WHEN TIGHTNING! DONT CRUSH THE GASTUBE. If anybody has info about a teloscopic stock for a SLR95 Please give me some info. Hope this is helpfull great quad rail if you like the looks"

"Ciscokid, I had a SLR95 and found the ACE stocks to be best, google Ace Stock. I sold my SLR for $1200.00 recently while the gun prices were high. I love this rail and CTD rocks, I have installed these on my SA 85M and a Norinco AKS and have had no problems with tightening them too much. Added the necessary accessories and these bad boys look tough and shoot great. Bipod, light and laser look just right. CTD rocks!!"

"Another fine product from UTG. I mounted this on my Norinco .223 and it fits perfect. I had it on in about 10 minutes while talking on the phone at same time. It's solid!. Gen. Patton said that \"The M1 Garand was the finest battle implement ever devised\". Well I would have to say that this is finest rifle handguard ever devised. Thanks UTG, CTD!!!!"

"Ok I bought this for my AK-106/107 and the day I got it I couldn't wait to put it on so i broke out my AK only to find it didn't fit. After pin-pointing the problem (the bottom half was not wide enough) i broke out my dremel and went to work. When all was said and done it took roughly 2 hours (keep in mind i was watching tv and on the phone) to trim down the inside of the bottom half. The outcome was AWESOME the quad rail looks extremly awesome!! Now currently i have the quad rail w/ a hand grip and soon a TLR-1 streamlight, a side rail mount w/ a scope and a PBS-5 imitation suppressor/silencer equipped on my AK. Add a full 30rd. clip to all that and it makes for a much heavier weapon. My problem w/ the quad rail is it weighs a little more than i expected, which they do not mention the weight in it's description. I was considering replacing it w/ just a bottom rail but the quad rail looks to awesome. Overall the rail w/ some modifications looks sweet and left me totaly satisfied realizing the weight factor is b/c of my own doing. If anyone has any suggestions to my weight problem i am definitly open for them. CTD is by far one of the best sites out there !"

"I have an early model Norinco from the early 80's. When I first tried to put it on it did not fit. However, using my dremel, I took off the extra stock and what a fit. This unit is rock solid. Even if you are not \"HANDY\" you should not have a problem."

"Originally I purchased just the top rail at another site for about the same price as this set. Placed it on an arsenal SLR-105. It had enough play in it to make any sight or scope you placed on it inaccurate after the first round. Now my rifle has this set on it and has no slop. Buy this set!"

"I have a Saiga 223 and before i bought this handguard i looked at the Reviews and saw that user zx9rtl had the same rifle as me so i went ahead and ordered it and in the mean time while i was waiting for it to arive i went ahead and did what the buyer zx9rtl did took off the heat shield on my gas tube and put my gas tube back on the gun and when i got it i had it out of the box and on my saiga 223 in 5 min's i am very pleased no problems with installing the UTG Handguard this is a great value for the money and looks great alot better then the gay looking handguard that come with the saiga 223 rifle.Thank You zx9rtl for the info."

"To start off....This product is awsome!Makes my WASR 10/63 look \"MEAN\"!Well, when i first ordered this UTG handguard, i thought it wasn't going to fit my WASR even though i read some comments that it fit other WASRs.I had ordered it and was looking more. Then i found the 101 UTG Romanian handguard.At that time i was really worried that the 103 bulgarian and Chinese one wouldn't fit. So i finially got it(within 5 days of order)and got my tools out and removed my old wood handguards (which are harder to take off then putting on the new UTG)!I put the new UTG on(which took 5-10 min) and i wasn't able to put the cleaning rod back in.So what i did was remove the new UTG and drill a bigger hole in the metal shims which are provided.Then placed back and had no more problems.The same problem is with the 101 UTG Romanian one.The only thing i dont like about this handguard is that you have to remove the upper handguard to remove the the gas tube to clean.But i can live with that.Also there was no gas tube pintching on my WASR when i tightened up the screws that hold the upper to the lower handguard.weight is 2.2 pounds.two thumbs up.5 stars,1 out of 10= 9.9"

"Mounted on my Arsenal Bulgarian Milled SLR-95. The instructions are easy to understand. Hardest parts was removing the original hand guard from the gas tube. Once you find a good seat for it all, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! this will cause problems with your gas tube , but easy to solve (unless you bent the tube completely) , back the mount screws off a bit until gas tube rod moves easily. Use blue lock-tight when setting the mounting screws. After I backed mounting screws off a bit the rail system was still solid, no wobble. I added the shortest front arm vertical grip I could find (item 17979) thinking there would be clearance issues if I put a longer one on when attaching 30 round mags. If you mount a longer vertical grip complete forward on the bottom rail there would be no problem with 30 round magazine attachment, so keep that in mind. Highly recommended, it looks and feels great."

"This is an excellent mount, heavy duty, and very well machined. I am actually surprised it does not cost more of the greens. Installation was a little time consuming but necessary. The stock provides excellent fit onto my WASR-10 with several spacers left over. After first installing the upper guard and tightening the screws I realized the top rail was slanted far to the left. Dis assembly and re tightening of the bolts was necessary paying special attention to the alignment of the grove on top of the rail and the groove on the rear sight. Also realize that tightening the screws fully may result in the aforementioned problem. I have mounted a vortex red dot scope (cheaper and excellent stand in for AIM Point) and an ATN reflex sight on the rails to this date. the ability to have a front mounted sight gives a scout setup with quick acquisition. Cons: This is a heavy piece. I installed a Folding stock reducing the weight in the rear and the rail system's weight has made it front heavy. With the Vortex red dot scope it is way too noticeable and problematic in weight. just to understand I weight train 3 times a week and still had cumbersome issues with it. However this problem may be have relieved with the installation of my new Reflex red dot scope by ATN (very small and light weight).Excellent buy and make sure to read the reviews of the plastic options similar to this melting."

"Honestly, this is one of the best product I've ever bought from CTD. The hardest part about installing this piece was taking the old parts off of my Bulgarian. I actually cracked the original wood. Had to use one upper and one lower shim to make it fit tighter. About 200 rounds later, no problem. Holo sight stayed zeroed. Plenty of rails for different \"door kickin\" gadgets, and plenty of rubber covers for comfort. Make sure to tighten the 4 screws evenly. Mostly for symetrical alignment, but also for looks. After shooting it, I took it apart and applied some lock-tite for assurance. Put it back together and only about 2 inches from zero. Plus it looks alot better than the standard AK wood. All around Great product and definately worth the money. If I get another AK, I'm getting another one of these."

"After a bit of minor fitting (a little filing and grinding to get things to line up well) this handguard fit my Bulgarian forged receiver AK (Type 3 AK-47 receiver)like a glove. Only time and several rounds through the gun will tell me how good it truly is (e.g., I wonder how well the aluminum structure will dissipate heat in actual heavy use), but for the time being seems like a well-engineered, well made product."

"Very good product. Bought one for my Arsenal SA-M7 side-folder (milled receiver). A little tricky to get on properly, but once on it's tight, light yet strong. Hint: contrary to the instructions, I had to mount the provided shims/spacers at the FRONT of the handguard (the instructions say at the rear of the handguard/front of receiver...that simply woould not allow the upper and lower halves uf the UTG fit together for me. Yes, the shims/spacers will work in the front, but you lose the use of the front grove on the lower rail."

"I installed this on my NORINCO NHM-91 in less than 5 minutes; Fits like a glove!However, If you have the factory gas tube with the heatshield, this handgaurd WILL NOT work... At first.You'll have to either remove the heatshield from the gas tube with a chisel or cutter, or have a spare gas tube (without the heatshield) standing by. Luckily I was able to canibalize the gas tube off of my AK to make this one work.Other than that, this is a great product!"

"I have a Bulgarian AK, tried to follow the provided instructions, however, the lower hand guard wouldn't fit behind the ring on the gas tube with the shims installed in front of the receiver. I ended up having to place the shims in the front of the lower hand guard, recommend this course of action if you encounter the same issue."

"I bought this setup for my NORINCO AK47 MAK-90 and it took longer to fill out the order form than to put it on. Easy, only added one of the 4 supplied spacers, tightened the 4 Allen screws with supplied wrench, doubled checked that it did not put pressure on the gas tube. It cleared the gas tube perfectly, fits snug tight. This rail system and the AKS-033 Pistol Grip, used a (6mm x 25mm screw)gives my AK a completely new modern look without any problems. Shipping was super fast. Great product, worth the money."

"I put this on my Saiga SGL20-21 with no real problemsI cannot get the cleaning rod to go back throughbut so what. The rail fits great and is solid. Took about an hour, beware the upper fore-end gripon mine did not just twist off of the gas chamber as the instruction stated, I had to break it out, but that is no fault of UTG. For the prices you cannot go wrong, totally awesome. You do have to take the gun apart to install, but I had never done it before, and it all went great expect the stupid cleaning rod will not quite go all the way in, This is just an alignment issue with the gun, the UTG does not guide the rod one way or another, I will stick a little rod in thier later to line it up and get it in, but that stupid cleaning rod scratches the compensator anyways anytime you take it, so I might just abandon it."

"I installed this device on a 20-year old B-west AK reciever fitted with Chinese parts. It fit well, after some simple experimentation with the shims supplied with the purchase. I ended up using one in front and one on back of the guard. Installation was simple. The handguard looks great and improves the functionality of the weapon over the scorched light wood pieces that it replaced. Together with a new Tapco polymer stock and grip, my old BWest AK got a makeover. Thanks CTD!"

"This product will not work on Arsenal Inc Bulgarian rifles like claimed! it puts too much stress on the gas tube for those type rifles to function correctly. The product looks good and may work on other type rifles but you'll need some tools no matter what is claimed about not needing tools."

"No spacers needed on Norinco NHM90 for me, feels sturdy, hard to level out against reciever. 4 out of 5 since I have not seen the higher end competitors(samson,etc). Good for the money, throw away the OE rail covers, and order some Surefire low profile covers to improve the system 100%"

"This fit perfect and all snugged up tight. I didn't like how far forward the gas tube and the upper rail extends. So I cut it off w/ a hacksaw then refinished the upper hand guard also covering the \"UTG\" stamping. Now it looks exactly like the more expensive KC rail. I took off those ridiculous rubber pieces, and chunked them in the trash where they belong. I have a shorty grip attached to it, and put 200 rds through it w/ zero wobble. It's a great quality aluminum rail and I am definitely going to purchase another one for my other MAK 90."

"I installed this rain on my Bulgarian AK-74, and ended up with a good tight fit. It did take 3 shims and I had to to use a dremel cut off wheel to cut about 3mm off the front hand rail mount before the gas tube would drop into place. Overall, I'm very happy with the end result. The rail is solid, and much better than the plastic that came with the rifle. The result was 5 bullets, but it got four because it does require some delicate fitting."

"This unit installs nicely and looks good, but adds a ton of weight to the front of the gun especially with a light installed. Also, if you get the leapers light, it will not mount on the right side (where it makes sense to mount since the bolt handle already sticks out there) because the thumb-tighten nuts are too big to clear the other rails."

"I put this on my MAK-90 looks great and adds a lot weight to the gun. It fits my UTG vertical fore-grip with light great (Item LIGHT-154). On the left side I put the Firefield green laser part (Item SCP-512). I love this setup on my gun. This makes it heavy, but the tools work great together. Fast shipping thanks to CTD. I gave only 4 Bullet because of weight. I put it on without the shims first, but the lower forearm lock was not tight. I then added two shims for a snug fit."

"I purchased this handguard for my Romanian Draco. Installation took about 45 minutes. Grinding down the front of the top guard was needed for a good fit. After getting everything screwed in, it fits very snug and provides a great platform for mounting optics, forward grip, etc. This handguard is very light, and the small picatinny covers work very well around mounted accessories."

"This is a great idea but comes with two flaws. I installed on a Bulgarian AK variant. Looked great, but it put tension on the gas tube and prevented the gun from cycling.

"Ordered the UTG rails on a Friday with the 3-5 day shipping option, and arrived the next morning, pure awesome. Slapped these on my Romanian WASR-10 underfolder in less than 5 minutes and was amazed at how tight the grips were, only using 1 of the 4 spacers provided. The ONLY drawback was the cleaning rod hole in the spacer. It forces the cleaning rod to press against the lower receiver thus leaving me unable to fully insert the rod, about 1/4\" left sticking out, nothing a dremel can't fix! Awesome price! Great product! I will be buying the UTG rails for my M4 as well!"

"Placed this on a Draco 47 pistol, fit perfect. Used 4 shims- 2 in front and 2 in rear just to tighten up fit to perfect. Is not loose at all and really looks smoking on this weapon. Hint: \"READ THE INSTRUCTIONS\" this means DON'T just look at them, read. I half way read them and looked at the pictures and thought, I got this and went to install it. After about 20 min of screwing with it, I picked the instructions up and read them again. Guess What? I wasn't doing some things just quite right and IT DOES make a difference. Installation should normally take around 10 min. This is a very high quality product and the fit and finish is outstanding. This price is very good. Highly recommend. I have ordered several items from CTD and am very pleased with price and speed of shipping."

I think it took me all of 10 minutes from strip to finish. Fits great, no noticeable change in how the SLR handles. Seems very well put together, and yes it does add a some weight to the front end from the standard furniture. Very happy with my purchase."
