Jeff’s Yugo M70 Underfolder with our Bulged Handguard Set

This is Jeff’s Yugo M70 underfolder with our bulged Yugo M70 handguard set:

1505496_10203068755945869_5411660876414114103_n

The handguard is based on a Zastava design that you will see on some of their import models.  Our design has a reinforced bottom and uses an extra thick gas tube cover based on a wood M70 handguard set.  The gas tube cover needs the Yugo gas tube retaining clip for a snug fit.

The bulged set is on our website at:  http://shop.roninsgrips.com/Yugo-M70-M76-M77-Handguard-Set-Bulged-Style-Uses-Ferrule-M70Bu

What is a Ferrule on Yugo and AK Rifles?

A ferrule is a metal end cap found on some wood grips and handguards to protect the end grain of the wood from being hammered and splitting open.  They were used on different country’s weapons and are usually not interchangeable between countries.  For example, Bulgarian and Yugo ferrules are different.

Near and dear to me are the metal ferrules on Yugoslav / Zastave wood lower handguards.  The following photo shows a M92 lower and the black metal cap is the ferrule.  This ferrule does not fit everything Yugo – just the M70, M85/92, and M77.  The M72 and M76 are unique sizes.

You have three options when you need a ferrule:  1) Find a used one and this is real hard – try posting in the Marketplace of http://www.akfiles.com and see if they have one.  2) Buy a replica ferrule from us or 3) Simply pry the old ferrule off, put it on the new handguard and the squeeze the tabs shut again with a pair of pliers.

Note if you are putting it on one of our plastic handguards either just set it on it with the ears closed or glue it in place.  Absolutely do not try to squeeze the ears shut — the little metal divots will not dig into our plastic and you risk snapping the handguard tabs.  Again, either slide it on or glue it in place with something like rubber glue or Goop that you can later remove if you want.  Epoxy works too but it is pretty permanent.

For example, I just slid the ferrule on the M70 bulged handguard in the next photo.

I hope this helps!
