A good saiga forend, especially for the money. Mine is installed on a .308 caliber Saiga. I have used it in training, multi-day trips in the desert, mounted bipods, forward grips, and lights on it from time to time. I’ve had it for nearly two years at this point and can comfortably give a positive review. I don’t know about other models of Saigas, but the OEM .308 handguard is not free-float, nor is the Tapco. The Handguard is relatively lightweight and protects a lot of real estate on the gun. The handguards addition has not increased accuracy, nor has it decreased it either. It gives you places to attach three rails, one along the bottom, and one on either side, and three polymer rails are included in the packaging. Herein lies my only complaint thus far with the forend, the polymer rails will break if you attach a high torque item (vertical grip, bipod, etc.) outside of the screw attachment point. In the center, it is good to go, and they will take some abuse that way. The forend vents well, being that it has an open top for the heat to escape, and it covers everything sufficiently well that unless you’re a moron, you won’t get burned during more massive rates of fire. If you are looking for a lighter option that won’t bankrupt you, especially if you want to convert to FDE or OD or something, this is a solid choice. It’s also 922r compliant and counts for a part. It does its job and can take a beating. What more can you ask?

Excellent lightweight handguard, very strong composite, the only downside is skewed are about 1mm too short. They do not go flush with the bottom of the nut. They are just long enough to go 2/3 of the way through, not what I would consider secure for the 5000 round torture test, but I will post again if they prove either test worthy or not. Not something that any average Joe should have to worry about.
Well made, lousy instruction

I’d give this AK handguard five stars except for the lousy instructions that come with it. If you are putting it on a Saiga (and good luck finding one), the old handguard comes off with two screws. This one goes back on with two screws, but good luck figuring out how. I had to watch two vids on YouTube (both poorly done, but hey, it’s YouTube) to figure out how the parts go together and which screws to use where. If you approach it as kind of a puzzle, you’ll realize things can really only go one way, so it’s a bit of a mental challenge. In the end, it is solid, well made and fills the average hand well, if you put all the rails on (all three are optional, but they add to be EBR look, so I put them on). Like all of Tapco’s products, you get your money’s worth. They just need to help the rifle owner a bit by either printing better instructions or putting up their own installation video on YT.
