Hi, is anyone installed this Midwest Industries hand guard on Vepr 308? How it is holding recoil and how easy it is to install? No steps on how to install on their page, it must have some additional bracket holding it on barrel?

I checked Krebs and it is too massive for my taste. I don't like to install plastic ones anymore, anything else you might suggest?

Thanks!

I just watched a video on YouTube of a guy that installs one on his AK and complains that it gets too hot to the touch, and that the anchoring insert is made out of plastic. That video was enough for me to stay clear of any aluminum kind of handguard. Instead, Im going to venture into modifying a Magpul MOE rifle-length handguard to fit it into my VEPR; it will be a fun project!

I have it on mine and I like it. Heat hasn't been a problem.
