Magpul MOE M-LOK AR-15 Handguard - Carbine-Length
The Magpul MOE M-LOK AR handguard (Magpul Original Equipment) for AR15/M4 firearms with carbine-length gas systems combines the lightweight of a standard Handguard with modular flexibility.
Designed with versatility in mind, M-LOK slots at the two, six, and ten o'clock positions allow the attachment of optional 1913 Picatinny rail sections and other M-LOK accessories for the direct mounting of tactical lights, slings, grips, etc. Reinforced, heat-resistant polymer construction provides operational durability without the weight and expense of an aluminum rail handguard. Front extensions and lower lip provide additional operator protection from hot front sight assembly.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
This Magpul moe handguard was a tremendous upgrade for my 300AAC. I'm not a tactical (bolt-on everything but the kitchen sink) fanboy. I love the simple and practical functionality that allows me to utilize a bipod or a light or other simple accessories that a hunting trip requires. This handguard dissipates heat well and has good looks too!
Good but not great
I purchased this Magpul ar 15 carbine forend for a rifle build to save weight. It is made well and fits the carbine length as advertised. However, the attachments (i.e., M-Lok rails and grips) continuously need to be watched. If you over-torque the bolts, they will strip free of the locking edges. A good deal of attention is required for tightening the attachments correctly. Usually, I run the rifle hard, dumping it to the side during transitions and digging the "broom handle" into barricades/ground for support during positional shooting. If you want a solid lock, without tightening attachments during strings of fire, go with an all-metal (steel or aluminum CNC machined) handguard to be sure no attachments will move. This was my first injection molded AR-15 handguard. Everything else is machined metal... Also, it doesn't seem to heat up during long-range times and has yet to distort from heat (it has a well made internal heat shield). I hope this helps!
Magpul MOE Hand Guards for Carbine
I bought this Magpul moe handguard to replace the ones that came with my Osprey Defense Gas Piston conversion kit. They fit perfectly and look far better than the ones supplied by Osprey Defense. I was a little apprehensive that they would fit because the piston is pretty wide in this kit. No worries though the fit was perfect, and the piston system functions fine within the handguards. I previously purchased the mid-length version of these handguards to use on a rifle with an Adams Arms gas piston kit. They worked there too with no problems, and they look great. I recommend these Magpul handguards.
Magpul moe handguard is excellent if you like to keep things simple.
I prefer my rifle setup nice and light, so with the accompanying vertical grip (sold separately), it has been working out well. Pros - Magpul makes great stuff with well thought out ergonomics, and I've always liked the quality-to-cost ratio. I think it is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and the color options allow you to add some extra flavor to your platform without going down the rabbit hole of paint jobs and cerakote and the like. Cons - the forend ends at the gas block, so if you like to get that support hand out towards the muzzle, this is not the product for you. Also, there are no rails, so you have to get kits to attach anything, not m-Lok compatible, and with the short length, there isn't much room for anything other than a sling mount and a well-designed light. If you're looking to trick out a rifle with all the bells and whistles, this will not serve you well. I run a pretty simple rifle set up, so I didn't have any issues, but even I can see the writing on the wall.
Perfect AR-15 Handguard for the front triangle mount on a 1970's era
This Magpul handguard fit a 1970's era AR15 Colt SP1 slab side .223 like a glove. You need to have patience because it fits tight. Use channel locks with rubber grips to hold the D ring down, and you can do it by yourself. Make sure the forward lips are correctly in place, and it is downhill after that. I was happily surprised how easy it was after I had added aluminum ones to a couple of M&P 15s. They also fit eventually like a glove, as well. I would repurchase this, and I recommend it.
Magpul carbine length handguard makes the gun look good!
I put this on my Smith & Wesson M&P Sport. The Magpul AR handguard It's loads better than the stock AR handguard. Easy to install, fits solid. Makes for a comfortable grip. It's an excellent option for the money.
Magpul ar-15 moe handguard
Installed on an M&P 15, fits great, no movement. Sure it looks nice, but I find it is a more natural grip feel, meaning my hand fits and grips comfortably. I haven't used and M-LOK accessories with it, so I can't comment there.
I would buy again the Magpul moe m-Lok handguard
I just received my Magpul moe handguard and installed it 5 minutes after it arrived. Fits so much better than the original on my S&W M&P15 Sport 2. Midwest had it at my door faster than when I ordered directly from Magpul for another build. If your a minimalist like me, all I added was an All in one Crimson Trace light, laser, and foregrip. It absolutely looks and feels awesome!
magpul ar 15 carbine forend
The 6.6-inch carbine fits the Ruger 556 perfectly, the only issue I came across was I needed to remove my optics to install the top portion of the handguard. Fits great and looks fantastic going to get an m lok grip for it.
Magpul moe m Lok handguard
I installed this on my DPMS Oracle .308 and love the form and fit. Also installed M-Lok 5 section poly rail for bipod. Very stable connection for bipod and sling, no wriggle. Changes the entire look and feel of the rifle, love the fact there's a heat guard inside lower section. It was a breeze to install. I liked it so much I ordered a second for my Ruger AR556, just an excellent product in my humble opinion. Excellent value for the buck.
I wanted to replace the factory AR-15 Handguard on an AR that has the front sling attachment. Several of the other options need the removal of this piece, including Magpul SL line. This handguard enabled me to keep the attachment while upgrading the appearance of the rifle. It pops into place easily, and fits nice and snug! Now it so simple to as many M-Lok AR-15 accessories I want.
Much better than the regular handgard on my Ruger AR556. More comfortable to grasp. Does not obstruct the qd sling attachment point under the front sight. Dropped right in. Got the black one, it looks cool.
