    I recently purchased a yugo AK-47 underfolder and i am interested in getting accessory /tactical rails put on it for red dot sights,etc...I have seen several advertised, ultimak,leapers quad rail etc but some folks have told me that most of them do not fit on the yugo ak properly...does anybody know for sure which rails fit properly on the yugo ak (im told the yugo ak gas tube is a bit longer, beefier,than other ak models)

    No standard off the shelf AK furniture will fit a Yugo AK. The handguards are longer. Now a UtiliMAK replacement gas tube might work...but I haven't measured a yugo gastube up beside a standard AK tube. I will do this tomorrow and get back with you.

    ok thanks...i checked the ultimak site and they do say they have a replacement gastube/rail for the top handguard..but it is pretty g.d. expensive...i was also looking for replacement for the bottom handguard so i could hang a tac light on the side

    I haven't dug the gas tubes out, but I am guessing your best bet would be to simply install a rail on the wood handguard.

    i got plastic /nylon / fiberglass/?? / for upper and lower handguards..and it seems that the uppers are permanently joined to the gas tube...seemed to be crimped together...thanks for checking back with me tho
