FYI, not sure how well this will go down given recent history with Troy & the communities dislike... of the situation, but I figured some AK love - regardless of from whom - should be shared;

There are going to be lots of burned fingers on the gas tube with that design.

Interesting....like the idea of further reach on support hand.  

Sorry, but new to the AK community here.....what is the deal with the distain for Troy?

At least they don't have the gap between the handguard and receiver.
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 5:23:31 PM EDT
Since they are from Troy, I won't be buying them. But if I did, I would wear gloves.

Why is he aiming with safety on acting like he is going to shoot in the ad?

Yeah.  I don't care if it's a super product.  No Troy for me.

Got it.  And agree....I'm not going to support that shit either.  Thanks for the info.

His left hand, of course, hides the area where the lower handguard mates to the receiver.
I actually wasn't aware of the Troy controversy until reading this thread. Interesting.....

I would prefer companies new to the Ak game innovate. Those afraid of heat, a pair of firm grip gloves is $15 at home depot.

So as to not bash the manufacturer.... I'll simply say "nope".
Link Posted: 1/26/2014 2:50:05 AM EDT
No front sight. I wonder how that warrior is aiming.

All these attempts to improve the AK are just polishing a turd. It is what it is and it was designed to be a piece of shit peasant rifle riveted together by communist slave labor and it does that better than any other rifle. Trying to dress it up and make it something it's not is just stupid.

Am I missing something or seeing something you aren't?   I clearly see a front sight.




I disagree with your assessment of the AK being a "turd".  
Link Posted: 1/26/2014 3:31:42 AM EDT
Oh yeah, I see the front sight now. I was at a weird angle to my LCD and it blended it with the background.

I stand by my "turd" assessment. I've carried AKs. I had a tabuk in Iraq and an egyptian in AFG because all I rated at those times was a Beretta. It's better than a pistol but it's not worth all of the custom work and boutique accessories because no matter how good the smith or how much money you dump on it you cannot adequately overcome the basic design flaws. The best AK mods I have ever seen were the Larue MRD mounts and the oversize mag catches. Beyond that it's reminiscent of those guys that drop $1000+ to get 1MOA out of their Mini-14

Get an AK, add a rear sight MRD mount and call it a day.

No.

I'm sorta on the same page as you are in the sense that some seem to overdue it with the Tactical mods to Kalashnikovs. For me, the only practical mods would be a Red Dot sight and Magpul AFG.

I prefer an AR stock on my AK not because its tactical but because the footprint of an AR stock is almost double that of a traditional AK stock. Much more comfortable on the shoulder.

Yep. Think I'll order one from CSS for my AMD65.

"gives the shooter a longer gripping platform for enhanced accuracy"...

Hey, i've got several of those, they're called "the factory handguards that come with every Vepr or Saiga made".  no extra charge.
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 2:53:22 PM EDT
I wouldn't worry about the hand guards heating up.
Troy's demographic (Shooters of women and children) only need a few rounds.

No more Troy for me
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 3:34:01 PM EDT
That really looks bad.  There are many better options.
