Default Anyone used the WBP Picatinny rail?

AoA is selling a railed handguard and gas tube combination for $110 and shipping. It looks pretty nice, but before I drop that kind of cash I`m going to do my homework. Has anyone played with one? I`m halfway tempted to just order one to be a guinea pig. WBP stuff is pretty good I hear, but the only review says the finish is weak, which isn`t a big deal to me.

You should talk to AOA , I am sure they would let you return the item if it did not meet your needs and done in a short period of time. We received a shipment of them and they a very nice and plan on installing them on some rifles we offer.

Is it true what AoA states, that they should be a perfect drop-in fit on WBP rifles?

Unless wbp is doing things their own way spec-wise it should fit almost all akms.

Very interesting. For $110 this seems like a great deal. An ultimak by itself is $100 let alone the lower handguard.

Agreed, and even if the gas tube doesn`t fit for whatever reason the lower handguard is supposed to be a simple drop-in like any other handguard.

As was said, they advertise as these supposedly being perfect fit on WBP rifles but "may require" fitting on other rifles. I`m wondering about putting one on my Bulgarian AKS74 once it comes back from a refinish.

It might or might not fit perfectly. That is standard for every AK part ever. Having a drop in part without fitting is just happenstance.

I`m aware of that, just parroting what AoA was saying.
