Magpul Zhukov-U Handguard for AK47/AK74 - Black


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 also allows them to accommodate the military issue cleaning rods. The Zhukov-U shares the same style of sturdy aluminum chassis as the longer standard Zhukov, providing strength and heat mitigation in a comfortable, injection molded exterior for superior ergonomics. The Zhukov-U includes M-LOK slots for accessory attachment, and is fully compatible with the UltiMAK gas tube rail. Installation requires removing handguard retainer. Hand Guard counts as one US compliance part for 922(r).


  • 1.5" shorter than standard Zhukov handguard
  • Fits stamped and milled AK-47/AK-74 rifles
  • Compatible with SBRs and AK pistols with standard-length gas systems
  • Full-length aluminum chassis for strength and rigidity
  • Heat shield relieved to accept standard AK cleaning rod
  • Durable polymer outer handguard

  • Vented gas tube cover
  • UltiMAK compatible
  • Weight: 11 oz

Please NOTE:

  • The Zhukov-U Hand Guard requires the permanent removal of the factory hand guard retaining cap and forward sling mount if so equipped. Please ensure your barrel diameter under the hand guard falls between 16.75-18.25 millimeters before cutting your retaining cap!
  • 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.
  • Heat shield relieved to accept standard AK cleaning rod.
  • WARNING: Due to extended Hand Guard length, barrels less than 11.5” long are not recommended.
