ZenitCo Sport series in details
Zenitco is well known for it’s Classic series. The reliability and performance of Classic handguards, covers and mounts was proven in combat multiple times. But recently Zenitco introduced new Sport series for those who want to make lighter setups. Many parts are interchangeable with Classic rails. We’ll help you not to get confused by all those parts.
Sport series now consists of 5 kits:
- Sport-1 (both for fullsize and AK-105 style carbines) and Sport-4 (only for fullsize rifles) for AK with stamped receiver.
- Sport-2 and Sport-3 for long barreled KR-9 (but base handguard can also be used with KP-9 SBR).
- Sport-5 for RPK based Vepr rifles (coming soon).
All Sport series handguards are equipped with Basis direct attachment system. You can read more about it, just CLICK HERE
So, each kit consists of three parts: basic handguard, handguard extender and gas tube cover.
- Sport-1: B-10L basic handguard, DL-1 handguard extender, B-31L gas tube cover.
- Sport-2: B-21L basic handuard, DL-2 handguard extender, B-31LV gas tube cover.
- Sport-3: B-21L basic handguard, DL-2 handguard extender, B-31LN gas tube cover.
- Sport-4: B-10L basic handguard, DL-2 handguard extender, B-31LV gas tube cover.
- Sport-6: B-20L basic handguard, DL-4 handguard extender, B-31/12 gas tube cover (For Vepr-12).
All basic handguards are also compatible with ALL Classic series accessories. For example you can put B-19N on B-21L. This will be the lightest KP-9 handguard combo, only 5.4 oz with Ultimak profile rail.
Then you can B-22 red dot mount:
Zenitco is like Lego for men. You can make any build you want. For example here is Sport-4 kit with B-33 receiver cover. It’s the longest possible handguard set, providing plenty of space to mount anything you want. Also, the whole set (Sport-4 + B-33 cover) weights 17.6 oz. Regular AK furniture, that will be replaced, is approximately 8.3 oz. So the longest handguard with receiver cover will add only 9.3 oz to the total rifle weight.
And if you don’t need such a long setup for your particular task, you can just replace B-31LV and DL-2AK with B-19N. This will reduce weight to 13 oz, so total weight increase over standard rifle is only 4.7 oz. And your B-10L handguard won’t need to be replaced.
Combining Zenitco Sport and Classic accessories allows you to turn your AK into versatile battle rifle, that will be ready for any mission, day or night, without compromising legendary AK reliability.
