NEW Zenitco-style ALPHA-1 AK Rail from BarWarus

    Fans of exotic AK builds, rejoice! BarWarus USA is bringing a Zenitco clone handguard and top rail to the US market. It is made in Turkey, so it can still be imported legally (unlike most/all Russian products).

    The ALPHA-1 is a two-piece design. The top rail secures to the main handguard with eight set screws, just like the Zenitco original. It is compatible with most AK-pattern rifles, with the exception of guns with milled receivers.

    The ALPHA-1 is expected to hit the market in January 2023, and it can be ordered direct from BarWarus or Frontier Armory. The anticipated price for the handguard is $410 but it is available at a preorder price of $350. Hopefully, we will be able to take a closer look at SHOT Show in January.
