"This foregrip rail system fits only receivers with flat sides, which is most. My Century Arms sporter does not have flat sides, and the lower grip will not fit. Also, the upper guard is the wrong length for my Century Arms sporter, which comes with longer furniture. However, I installed the set on my Norinco Mac 90, but definitely not without work. I had to do extensive filing in a couple of places. First, the upper guard is just a tad too long for my Mac-90. Filing on the flanges to remove a total of about 1/32\" did the trick. The upper was a bit more time consuming. I had to just about totally remove the 4 little spacer tabs designed to hold the upper and lower guards apart. The problem is that the tabs kept the upper from fully seating, preventing the camming pin from engaging and locking the upper guard in place. I finally got everything in place. The unit is nice once you get it installed. Just be aware that it might not fit your AK and that it probably will take some fitting and filing. One more thing: Be sure you know the correct way to remove the upper handguard from the gas tube (you can find directions on line). When you reinstall the furniture on the gas tube, be sure to rotate the tube so that the rail is level horizontally. For the Century sporter I'll get a clamp on system."

"This product fit nice and tight on my Romanian SAR-1. I had to wrestle with it to get it on, but did not have to take the dremmel to it, which resulted in a strong, snug foregrip. I have not tried to install the top grip as I already have a top foregrip I am happy with and only bought this product for the bottom piece. I have had problems in the past trying to get lower foregrips to fit on my SAR-1 and was both relieved and pleased to find how tight and sturdy (good looking as well) this product is on my rifle. Definatly a keeper."

"I recently purchased this forgrip for my WASR 10 and I could not be more pleased. It took a small amount of force for the bottom guard but it fit nice and tight. The upper peice took alot more work though. I had to take a dremel to the ends that rotate around the gas tube they are about a 1/16 off but very easy to fix. After I was done I could not believe how great the gun looked. By far the best looking hand guard I have seen. VERY VERY HAPPYMatt"

"bottom fits great just needs a little tap with rubber mallet but goes in smooth top needed a little grinding but if you cant get it to fit you dont need to be shooting this gun not as hard as others make it out to be looks good the only problem i had was a screw was missing for the side plates but ctd said they would send me another one will see, and will let you know"

"I am very pleased with this handgaurd. It has that look about it that will make your AK very unique. I am not so sure about the \"Easy Install w/No Tools\" bit as both halves took quite a bit of force to fit properly. However I did not have to alter either piece. I will be using it as a scope base for a red dot and am confident that it will hold zero. Matches nicely when used in conjuction with the Tapco butt stock and grip."

"Excellent product, especially for $60. Good tight fit on my Norinco, sturdy, rails are well made. I would buy this again. May need fitting by a patient individual (not me) so take that into account before buying. Overall nice product."

"Installed on a MAK90No modifications were needed, but they sure are a tight fit. It took a few hours to getter done because I was proceeding very slowly and being very cautious not to bend/break anything. With the experience behind me, I could probably now install them in 45 minutes or less.The guards are solid and don't move at all, so holding a zero should not be a problem. The upper will be used for a HWS.The rubber mallet (mentioned in one of the other posts) did the trick for getting the lower guard into the proper position (thanks). In order to get the tabs on the upper guard to properly seat with the holes on the lower, the upper guard must be PRECISELY aligned on the gas tube, otherwise one side will match up but the other side will not. A crescent wrench was used on the flat portion of the rear of the gas tube to firmly hold the gas tube while twisting the upper guard into place.A great product at a nice price, these are keepers. Thanks CTD."

"I forgot to note that a close look at the CTD photo will show that the screws for the 2 side-rails are put in from the inside of the upper guard. This is done so that the screws will be flush with the lowest part (the trough/channel) of the side-rail."

"Very nice item. I'm very happy with it. I didn't have to do any fitting but it was very tight. I'd rather it be tight like that than loose and sloppy. I recommend it highly. I also purchased the rubber rail guards at the same time and put them on bottom rail, sits in my hand really nice."

"It was a tight fit putting it together even though I had to cut a small notch to get pass the carrying handle, my WASR-10 is a RPK clone. The wooden furniture would get hot after a day at the range but this foregrip never once got too hot to touch. Even after 200 rounds in under 15 minutes, my hand remained gloveless and only felt warm air."

"Great Product from our friends at Cheaper than dirt. Small paper in bag says \"Easy Install with no tools\" that is my only gripe. I had to use a vise, a file, and even a dremel to make it fit. Bottom fit fine but the top part needed some shaving to \"roll\" into the gas tube brackets for the foregrip. (The top part was a little too long on both sides). STRONG MATERIAL, GREAT LOOK ON THE GUN with or without additional rails on sides. Fast shipping from Cheaper Than Dirt, just be patient and maybe set aside some tools. Worth the wait if this product is out of stock!"

"This product is by far the worst thing you can order for you AK. I recieved this product in the mail yester, and i sent it back today. It is way too tight of a fit for the AK. Unless you shave the wood down to the brim and the it might fit. But who wants to make the wood weak by shaving it down and then in the long run break while fireing your weapon. I just ordered the Quad Rail System for my AK AKS 101. It looks way more durable."

"This was the perfect handguard for my Norinco MAK 90. I opened the box, and had it on the gun without a dremel, a rubber mallet or any modifications in less than 20 minutes. Just slip the lower forend's rectangular slot in the bottom of the receiver and push with a little elbow grease to get the bottom started, then line up the forward retaining pin and voila the bottom is on. The top was a little trickier because you need a pair of pliers, or channel locks to rotate the upper handguard into the correct position. other than that, no tools. Holds zero on my red dot sight. and is a very tight fit. A huge improvement over the wood furniture. Buy this one and be patient during the install, you won't be sorry. (when rotating the upper hand guard on the gas tube. use a towel or rag on the end of it so you don't mar the finish, then just rotate in small increments.)"

"They fit on Romanian AK-47, they will not fit on YUGO AK-47's imported in from century arms! So buy an original AK-47, Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian, ect. not a century arms AK-47! Because these are awesome front handguard, with a rail system, man these are GREAT!!!"

"This Handguard was just as advertised. It fit easily on my WASR 10 and finished it off looking like AK should. It is different than the one pictured because I got 9 rubber pads that snap on the top and side rails. It looks better than the one pictured. AUTOMAG11"

"Well this item looked really good in the catalog but getting it on my AK is easier said than done. Since there are small variations in a lot of AK models some may fit better than others. Mine is a Yugoslov model and it has proven all but impossible to make it fit. If you don't have gunsmithing tools or access to a good gun smith this item might not be a good idea."

"With a little elbow grease the lower hand guard fit perfectly. The upper was almost 1/8 inch to big. Better to big then to loose. It took me 4 hours to get the upper on, including running to the store to buy a Dremel. After I shaved the front down enough to fit the piston sleeve, I couldn't get the sleeve to lock. It took me another 20 minutes of pushing, pulling, oiling and just playing with it to get it on. As is stated below, this item fits very tightly. That is good, because I mounted a Red Dot sight to the top, and it hasn't yet lost it's zero. Also all my friends are jealous of how good it looks on my commy gun."

"Like the last review, I have a flat sided WASR 10 and my install took about an hour. Bottom was pretty easy, with a non-marring hammer. Top end, Dremel, vise, crescent wrench,file and non-marring hammer. I filed down the front sleeve of the gas piston to get the upper to fit. I had the same problem with the piston tube not locking. In the end, I filed down the tabs on the bottom of the upper to make the lock work. No real problems. 4 bullets because I'd like the side rails to be a lower profile and there's no covering on the side of the trunnion. The other lower was flush all the way around. It's on it's very snug and it's staying . Glad it looks good too."

"This was a very nice purchase. The hand guards went right on with a little tap. After Bump Firing a couple hundred rounds they were pretty warm, but not so that you couldn't still hang on. Way better than the wood hand guards. That's why I give this product five bullets."

"This was pretty difficult to put on the WASR-10. I thought it was a near impossibility. I finally put it on my friend's AK however after we were done we realized we forgot to screw on the side rails. Neither of us thought we were going to get this back on if we take it off. So the rails stayed off. Spend a few more bucks and get the UTG quad rail system. I have that on my rifle and it is spectacular."

"This replacement grip is great! I have used it for serious firing with attached grips, lights etc. It is well maded and stays in place solidly. Even when firing large amounts of ammo this grip has good vents for cooling and never gets to hot to handle. It did take some file work and elbow grease to get on but worth it. Thanks CTD for the great product."

"well i have to say that this hand guard set looks amazing on my Romanian WASR-10 and is quite comfortable. the bottom piece fit great. however the top piece was a royal pain in the... well you know. it took me well into 3 hours with pliers, a hammer and a punch to get this piece onto the gas tube. i had to completely bend out the front retaining ring on the gas tube (due to it being spot welded in place) and trim a considerable amount of material off the hand guard piece to get it to fit in place. after a lot of sweat and frustration it fit fine and once installed it is rock solid. you definitely need some patience if you plan on installing this set on yur weapon."

"Handguard set looks great... but despite warnings below, had a heckuva time getting off wooden part of the old upper handguard. It never occurred to me it would turn IN the two U-shaped brackets. After about an hour of banging and swearing I just twisted it in angry frustration and the the wood part turned nicely 180 degrees and practically fell off. The new one was just a hair too long so a minute grinding with the dremel made it fit easily but snugly. Hope this helps others."

"I received the grips in less than two weeks. I had more trouble getting the upper wood guard off than installing the new one. It was just a hair long on two spots so I used a nail file and sized it. It was a breeze to install after that. The bottom wasn't any trouble at all. The rails work and they have made my Hungarian AK look good. Thank You for shipping so fast."

"I JUST FINISHED PUTTING ON THE MAKO FRONT HAND GUARD. THE INSTALL WAS A SNAP. REMOVE THE TOP OF THE HAND GUARD. TO REPLACE THE CURRENT WOOD YOU WILL NEED A CRESCENT WRENCH AND FIND THE TWO FLAT PANELS ON THE BACK OF THE UPPER GUARD. HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. PLACE THE WRENCH SO IT FITS TIGHTLY ON THE FLAT PARTS. WHILE HOLDING THE WRENCH IN ONE HAND TAKE HOLD OF THE WOOD AND TWIST IT UNTIL IT ROTATES 180 DEGREES. THE WOOD WILL COME OFF AT THAT POINT. TO PUT THE NEW MAKO HAND GUARD ON PLACE THE EDGES INSIDE OF THE HOLDER AND TWIST IT BACK 180 DEGREES; IT WILL SNAP IN PLACE. THE BOTTOM IS EASIER. HOLD IT SO YOU CAN SEE THE GAS TUBE (WOOD IN YOUR HAND) . LOOK AT THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE AND LOCATE THE LEVER (IT IS SMALL) LIFT IT AND THE RETAINING PANEL WILL SLIDE FROWARD. PLACE THE NEW MAKO GUARD ON THE GUARD AND SLIDE THE RETAINING PANEL BACK IN TO PLACE AND PUSH THE LEVER DOWN. HERE COMES THE PART THAT WILL TEST YOUR PATIENCE'S GETTING IT TO SNAP IN PLACE CORRECTLY TAKES SOME PATIENCE'S AND TRIAL AND ERROR. YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO MODIFY THE NEW MAKO GUARD IT IT IS MADE TO FIT. WHAT I HAD TO DO WAS ADJUST THE UPPER GUARD SO IT WAS SQUARE WITH THE BOTTOM. IT TOOK A COUPLE OF TRIES BUT IT FINALLY SNAPED INTO PLACE. GOOD LUCK."

"1st off very speedy delivery. 5 stars for CTD. I installed this with my MAK 90. I spent 5 hours just to put the upper and lower parts on my rifle.

Very tight fit once its on."

"Shipping was unbelievably fast. Had to do some very minor dremel work (shaving)on the lower handguard, and then it went on easily and tightly. As so many others have remarked, the upper handguard was somewhat difficult to install, but this was NOT due to the product, it was because of the way the product attaches to the gas tube, which is the same way the original wood furniture attached. Once you have each end started in the grooves, it takes some considerable effort to twist the handguard inside the grooves. This was made much easier with a pair of slip-joint pliers and some elbowgrease. After installation, it is a rock-steady platform, and it looks great. I'm extremely pleased."

"This is a well made solid handguard set. I put it on a Century WASR-10 underfolder. If you are struggling with the upper handguard a good tip is to gently lock the gas tube down into a vise. That way it doesn't move around while you twist the upper handguard out. Don't use channel lock plies or you'll just tear up your gas tube. The new one goes in just as easy. Overall this handguard set is awesome. It looks great and is comfortable in the hand. It also eliminates all play in front end of the gun, which the nasty wood furniture has plenty of. Also, for those of you with underfold stocks, this handguard is low profile and allows the stock to fold and lock into position just as well as the wood handguards do so I highly recommend this for any AK."

"Upper hand guard was extremely hard to assemble (tight and tough to twist on), lower took just a slight tap from a hammer... I do like the tight fit though. Had the aluminum quad rail before, but it was just a bit too heavy. If this vents the heat half as good, then it was well worth the money. Open vents don't disperse the heat well enough, a vertical hand grip works wonders."

"This hand guard is exactly what it should be. Thanks to the guy who posted his step by step instructions, this took me all of 20 minutes to install with no shaving, or alterations. (Once I removed the gas tube from my AK SAR-3, it was exactly how it was instructed.) You will need a crescent wrench for the twisting of the upper portion. Once it is completely square you will not have any trouble locking it down. So be sure to give it a couple of taps to make sure it is seated square. Now I am going to pick up the front hand grip to attach to this hand guard, thanks CTD, it showed up in 3 days, AWESOME!"

"What a dream! Sure it was tight going on, but holy schnikes is this thing light and tight. The Israelis sure hit a home run with this one!

"Well, I did, like many before me have difficulty getting the grips to fit onto my wasr ak-47. I attribute this to the manufacturer wanting the grips to be as tight as possible. I had to grind some plastic off the top grip so it would fit on my gas port and using a vise made this possible to rotate the assembly in the correct configuration. All in all, the grips look great and match my Mako shock stock. I sure had lousy wood so the new look is very appealing. If you can do a slight bit of grinding, this stock is great!"

"This handguard is more than i expected. It looks great and fits really tight on my WASR 10. Yes it took a little muscle to get the top on but besides that it was simple to put together. It took me all of 10 minutes to put it together just because it was tight but that is a good thing. Can't wait to go to the range to show it off."

"Was a little bit of a pain in the A#@ to install. But once I got it all together it's great! No gunsmithing really required. My Eotech and light fit like a rock.

So if you are preparing for a impending zombie invasion this is a must have."

"I have a WASR 10, so I thought this might dress it up a bit. I dont care for the full aluminum rail setups. They usually are too awkward and become very heavy. With that said, I thought the polymer would be the way to go. The item description says, \"easy install no tools required\". B.S. I needed a grinder to mill down the gas tube some sandpaper to clean it up and then primed and painted the gas tube. What a pain in the butt! It looks tough, though. Be prepared to spend some time, be patient and dont forget the tools."

"I bought this to have some mounting options for my Centruy Arms WASR-10. Before I begin, it's important to state that I am fairly inexperienced with disassembling rifles. That being said, I was able to install this, but not without the headache the other reviewers have stated. If I had been prepared the process may have taken me 30 mins to an hour. But I wasnt. To install this I needed a dremel tool and a cresent wrench. You will have to shave off a considerable amount of the upper rail system to get it to fit on the gas tube. Just have your dremel ready and youll be good to go. I can say it looks amazing on and I'm happy with the results but just can't rate it higher than 3 because of the amount of labor involved in something advertised as \"No tools needed.\""

"This is a fantastic hand guard/rail once installed. No rattle or movement at all, looks and feels awesome. The top gas tube cover was a pain to make fit though.

"I bought 2 of these handguards for Bulgy ak74 and Romi GP75, took me around 4 hours to install both. They look very good and function well. The only reason for 3 stars is because it started melting after rapid firing 240 rounds on my Bulgy 74, I didn't notice it until I took off the lower hand guard to examine and front part where it meets the metal had been melted a bit. If it was made with metal I would not have this problem. But it will be good for slower shooting."

"After losing my knuckle skin, I finally took it to my local gunsmith. 3 minutes and $10.00 later he brought out my Draco AK pistol with these new grips. Couldn't believe it was my gun! Looks like a \"BEAST\"! Took it to the range that afternoon, the heat displacement is 100% better than the \"furniture\" it comes stock with. With the amount of power packed into this little pistol your going to want the front grips to be snug as hell, and these are. Worth the money and time to put them on. Getcha one....."

"I have a Romanian AK- the bottom of this hand guard is why I bought this. It works perfect but the top is too small and refuses to go on. I tried dremaling it out it got thin and still was too small. I decided to leave the top off no wood, no plastic just the steel tube. I threw a grip on it, it works perfect and matches my mako rear stock. It doesn't catch on fire like the wood one. Who needs the top any way. My round drum, grip, and laser work just fine and dandy."

"I gave product four stars for two reasons: First and foremost No instructions. I\uFFFDm new to AKM firearms; the twist off and on of the top hand-guard threw me. I found instructions using Google but it would be very easy for Mako to include a picture or two showing removal and install procedures. Secondly both the top and bottom pieces required minor fitting. I see this as a non-issue given the high number AKM manufactures and the potential differences in fit and finish. I would much rather need to remove a little material than have a loose fitting hand-guard. Overall this is a typical high quality product that Mako is known for. I most definitely recommend this product to anyone wishing to customize their AKM."

"I gave this two bullets for several reasons.I wanted to put this on my WASR 10/63. The bottom went on fairly easily. It came in a rather odd shape, it looked perhaps bent inward from having weight on it during manufacture or shipping. Once I stretched it out it and hammered on it a little bit, it went on very tightly.The top however is a different story. First, the side rails have to be attached to the top handguard, they don't come that way. The screws they give you are extremely short. Only one or two threads go into the nuts that hold the side rails on. This looks really flimsy to me. On top of that, two of the screws stripped during installation when I accidentally overtightened them. I had to carve out the inside of the handguard with a dremel so the screws would go farther into the nuts. Second, I had to hammer and pry the gas tube for two hours to get the top handguard to fit. Someone with less experience may have accidentally destroyed the gas tube, handguard, or both.They are attractive, functional, and fit tightly, but I cannot recommend them to anyone with a WASR 10/63."

"Looks good on my AK pistol. Took quite a bit of modifying with my dremel to get this to fit on. Then I had to pound it on with a hammer, which scratched my receiver and barrel. You definitely need tools to install this!!!!!! Also, the top piece doesn't fit on the AK pistol either."

"Fine add-on to my Romanian AK. Bottom hand guard fell right on, top was a little tight but fit nice and snug with very little sanding. It's not the Mako item that doesn't fit, it's the wood grips on the imported AKs that are not to spec. Love this hand guard!"

"Installation was a piece of cake, compared to the Mako buttstock I purchased for the same weapon. I took a little material off the ends and they fit like a glove. Great component for the money."
