Like many other AK handguards it took a bit of “massaging” to get mounted right. W a dremel or better tooling you can make adjustments where needed. I used this on a new PSA AKP and it came out sick. However besides what I listed above, we had to do some mill work to fit any decent size brake due to this particular weapons barrel thread pitch being 24x1.5... when done it came out to be one of the best looking AK’s I’ve personally seen :)
The bottom goes on pretty easy. Lots of space and you can really get a good, straight support arm grip. Top rail can be a bit tricky. I wasn’t able to get the gas tube latch down the normal way. I had to go all the way around clockwise to get it to fit. Scratched up the side of the rail a little but nothing a little touch up couldn’t fix. This is exactly what I needed for the Ak74
Great Handguard! It is very solid once installed, I was pretty surprised at how sturdy this is. The shape is good, I was very pleasantly surprised, especially with how well the top cover locks on with the gas tube. Cant go wrong here.
I was lucky enough to snag their last one (for now). I no I switched from the classic hand guard, to Magpul & finally JL Billet. The first two were awful for heat mitigation. The build quality of JL Billet is fantastic, and the fit was perfect. I didn't have an issue with the brackets being too long like the other reviewer, I suspect that's more of a QC issue on PSA's side than JL Billet's. At any rate, I'm very pleased & am now a big fan of their products/work.
I love the bottom handguard! Installation was very simple. The top section however was too long to fit into the brackets on my gas tube which doesn't bother me because I had already decided on going with an ultimak gas tube replacement. My rifle is a PSA GF3 AK47.
The JL Billet AK Rail Long is definitely a quality, well made product. It is sturdy, looks great, and feels like a quality piece that will last a lifetime. Installing on a Palmetto State Armory PSAK47 Gen 3, the bottom section (handguard) fit fine, but the top piece (gas tube cover) required a fair amount of filing to get it to fit. There is no such thing as MIL-SPEC or "one size fits all" when it comes to AKs so this wasn't the end of the world, but it was a PITA. Well worth it, though.
