DDI has begun shipping another AKM complete with Magpul furniture. This time the AK comes equipped with the MOE AK Hand Guard and Zhukov stock. This combination of parts provides broader compatibility with other hand guards should you ever want to replace the MOE Hand Guard since, unlike the Zhukov Hand Guard, this requires no modification to the hand guard retainer. The Zhukov stock provides a folding stock for transport.
Like DDI’s other AKM offerings, these feature a KG Gun Coat finish. The bolt, bolt carrier, axis pins, rear sight assembly, spring guide, and barrel are Fenocite treated for corrosion resistance and increased surface hardness. Speaking of the barrel, it is made to DDI’s specs by Green Mountain and plays a large part in the surprising accuracy that has been reported by DDI shooters. I have not shot mine for groups yet but it has exhibited good practical accuracy out of the box. Each rifle ships with a Magpul AK MOE magazine.
So, if you have wanted to pick up a DDI AK with Magpul furniture but were turned off by the Zhukov Hand Guard, this could be the one. You can find them at several online dealers or your local dealer can order one for you.
