    hey all, I have a romanian RPK and wish to add a quad rail on it so I can use a forward grip on it. Does anyone know of any manufacturer that makes one or will a regular AK variant work?

    IIRC, a RPK hand guard and traditional AK handguards are the same lenght, I would think any one would do. But I no longer have a RPK or AK to compare to.

    They are not the same length. Not interchangable. I have extensive backgorund with this platform.

    You can modify two standard AK forends to fit a FPK DRagunov, PSL54 ROmak III etc. I have done so, and can post pictures of my FPK Dragunov with the front modified. However, it is not recoememended this be tried with cnc aluminum rails, etc...


    As far as I know there was only one company makign a RPK forends, no longer in business. They did not make a quad rail version either.

    Since you woldnt be able to mount a free float, a quad would be moot. You can get a reaceiver mount weaver/piccatinny that is much more accurate anyhow, and if need be, make a bolt on modified bipod to mount ot the front forend, or "wrapparound" bracket.

    Also, someone for a fair price can whip you up some hard wood forends, and you can "mount your own 1913 rails.


    Hope this helps.

    There are many actual Dragunov/Tiger forends available.

    What is being refered to here is the FPK Dragunov, Romak III, PSG97, etc platform, witch is much, much different. Also much harder to find.

    Not sure witch is listed in your Centerfire catalogue...It would be good info.

    Please list a link, picture, cat number etc. I would be interested in knowing.

    Here is a pic of my 1st Gen FPK Dragunov, modified.

    Nothing special, plasti-welded two tapco intrafuse forends together. Made an aluminum bracket for the bipod. Cheap, so that if it didnt work, I could toss them. Its held up now for 4 years.

    PSO-1 is still the best scope for this rifle in my opinion.

    Sorry, it's for a PSL/SWD, I couldn't remember last night and was too tired to walk out to the car and get the catalog. It's part # 0510HDG-PSL if anyone is interested. I didn't see it on the website.

    I dont think there is any made for the "RPK". maybe have to make your own out of a pice of LVL , its very similar to the plywood they use. copy the akm forend grip.

    What I find funny is that the OP is/was a one hit wonder. No activity since April of 2010.
