chaos handguard

by Rob Kay For those who want to add third party rails or handguards to their AKs, there are two basic choices. You can take the polymer route or go aluminum alloy. “Plastic” has the advantage of being inexpensive and strong. You’re probably not going to save any weight with polymer, but for most people’s […]

AK Accessories: Tapco has some hidden gems

  by Rob Kay Tapco has had a huge presence at the SHOT Show of late, possibly because it’s owned by the Freedom Group, aka Remington which it purchased in 2012. The majority of their products are targeted towards the AR platform but they do manufacture a sizable number of AK parts. What I've done is to cherry pick […]

side by side

By Rob Kay I suspect if you’ve purchased an AK, one of the first accessories, if not the first you’ll consider acquiring is a scope mount. So, what to buy?

Fuller 3

Working out of garages or barns, they are at once, part entrepreneur, inventor, and engineer. Driven by passion rather than the buck, they live, eat and dream AK. One of […]

On Target Review: Bolt Hold Open Mags from SGM and Weapon Tech

SGM

On Target Hawaii Profile: The Evolution of RS Regulate

RS Regulate

  by Rob Kay I formerly worked in Silicon Valley where entrepreneurship and the passion to create technology are absolute necessities to succeed in building a company. What’s never too far from people’s minds is the thought of striking it rich. It’s all about having an “exit strategy”, that is...how much money you’re gonna make […]

by Rob Kay The Saiga is a threatened species of antelope that makes its home high in the steppes of Central Asia. It's native to Russia and is also the name of the civilian line of AK rifles created by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Of late, the latter species of Saiga seems to be even more threatened […]
