Hold Your Rifle Without Getting Burned
Occam Defense’s MERC increases the combat effectiveness of AK rifles by adding a rugged, thermally managed hand guard and optics mount in a user-installable configuration. The mounting methods used for previous extended guards were less than optimal. The MERC (patent pending) grabs the barrel right next to the chamber, where it is most cool. This keeps the handguard cool, eliminating the need for gloves.
