Searching here and online but couldn't find the answer so here it goes. Complete AK newb, and I just got a Draco. I can field strip it but how do you remove the foregrip. And is this a standard size AK foregrip.

Thanks Calgunners

First remove the top cover, spring, and bolt carrier. Remove the upper handguard by pushing the handguard retaining lever up and remove the HG.

Then with a screw driver, push up on the lower handguard retainer lever and pull the lower HG off. Remember to pull the cleaning rod off first.

Yes they are standard. Except the Dracos don't have rear ferrule cap cut like on Maks.
And another different AK handguard is the Krink with a 9" barrel. So make sure not to get this.
AKM, AK-74, & AMD- SA85 Hand guards will work.
