Does anyone know of a quality rail system for the Yugo M70AB2. Krebs has some great rail systems but, not for the Yugo's as of yet. Are there any others-manufactures to consider. Please advise.

By rail system... do you mean a scope rail or are you talking railed 'everything'?

A rail system for primarily, front forearm. Now, if there is rail system that would extend the length of the AK, that too, would be good. Thank you for responding. Something like the Krebs rail.

I believe Leapers/UTG is the only one offering a rail system for the Yugo AK.

Want to thank everyone for affording the info on manufactures of rail systems for the Yugo M70AB2. I too called Leapers, spoke to a lady whom I could barely understand and likewise heard the same.

Coming out soon. Does anyone have a Leapers rail system on their AK & could extend some info on it. Is it sturdy & well made? Please advise at your convenience.

You know what I have thought about is just changing the top guard with something with a rail so I can mount an aimpoint mini. But retain the bottom wood?

Any pics to reference this?

Not wood, but this is how my AK is setup. I have no use for a bottom/side rail system on an AK.

As far as the compact ULTIMAK lower rail. They tend to be a bit heavy. However, I did receive this email today from them;

I hand-built a prototype this Spring, which I think is quite nice (and very light) and then had it anodized. As I recall it’s just shy of a quarter pound lighter than it started, or a little over 0.2 lb lighter. I think we can shave off a little more weight in the production version, but we’ll have to see what we find in the CAD stress analysis and field testing. We have to get the drafting done, and then the programming to put it into production, but yes. It’s definitely on the way, and fairly soon. I just can’t tell you when.



For starters it’s going to be offered in the “Compact” version only. The Compact is our most universal forend rail, as it fits the AMD-65 and the popular Yugo M-70 series AKs, as well as all the other, more “standard” AKs. The new ACR2 “lite” will also have side cuts in the back, so as to better clear the underfolding stocks.

As far as mounting an optic to the gas tube. ULTIMAK sell's a replacement unit. You cannot simply remove it once it's in place. You will need tools to do so to clean your gas tube. I had one, and even though it was a very sturdy mount, I didn't care that much for it. Personally, I'm going to wait for that new compact ULTIMAK mount, and hopefully, LaRue will introduce their side optics mount in the future. However, one will need a side optics rail on their AK in order to use it. TANTAL & K-Var sell's optic plates, but they need to be riveted on. TANTAL offer's one that screws into the side of the receiver, that would work on the Yugo. You will need to use the longer screws, which they come with anyhow.

Hope this helps..
