Magpul AR-15 HandGuards

Overview of MAGPUL HandGuards

Magpul offers a wide variety of handguards to meet the needs of the consumer.  All of the Magpul handguards currently offered feature rugged polymer construction.  The polymer used in these hand guards provide an amazing amount of durability without the weight and cost generally associated with aluminum handguards.  If you are looking for a light weight, modular handguard for your AR-15, Magpul has you covered.

MAGPUL MOE SL HAND GUARDS

 The new Magpul MOE Slim Line handguards are an update of the original MOE AR-15 hand guards.  This new slim line offer an updated and sleeker look, while improving upon the compatibility with other accessories.  The SL handguards are currently only available in the Carbine-Length.  But they are offered in a wide variety of colors, including Black, FDE, OD Green and the new Stealth Gray to fit your individual requirements.

These hand guards utilize the new Magpul engineered M-LOK system.  This system serves as a negative space accessory mounting solution that works with, and in some cases completely replaces the traditional Picatinny rail mount.  Since it is a negative space, when not in use, the M-LOK cutouts also serve as ventilation holes, allowing your barrel to disperse heat more efficiently and cool more rapidly.  The M-LOK mounting slots are located at the 2, 6, and 10 o’clock positions to ensure that you are able to mount you accessory wherever you need to.  Magpul has an ever-increasing line of M-LOK compatible accessories what will easily mount to this handguard.

Installation of the SL hand guards is very simple.  It utilizes the exiting delta ring assembly and round hand guard-retaining cap.  This makes it a direct, drop-in replacement for a direct impingement AR-15 with the traditional plastic handguard and fixed front sight gas block.  However, please note that if your A2 front sight assembly has a factory sling swivel, this will have to be removed before this handguard can be installed.

Aiding in shooter comfort and safety, the MOE SL Hand Guards have an integrated aluminum heat shield riveted to the internal portion of the hand guard.  As another safe guard, these handguards have a front lip and long side extensions to act as a hand-stop, as well as to protect your hand from the gas block, which can produce a significant amount of heat.

 MAGPUL MOE HAND GUARD

 The MOE handguard is Magpul’s initial entry into AR-15 Handguard manufacturing.  This hand guard is essentially an earlier generation of the new Slim Line Handguard and, hence, has many of the same features.  The primary difference between the Slim Line Hand Guard and the older MOE handguard is that this version is not compatible with the M-LOK accessory mounting system.  Instead, the MOE handguard has proprietary mounting slots and dedicated accessories. 

The Magpul MOE Hand Guards are available in a plethora or different configurations.  These hand guards are available in a 7.1” carbine length, 9.2” Mid-Length, and a 12.6” Rifle length versions.  Additionally, these hand guards are available in a wide array of colors, including black, flat dark earth, foliage green, stealth gray, OD green, and even pink

Although they are not the latest offering from Magpul, these handguards are still desirable.  They are offered at a lower sales price than the new SL Hans Guards. So, if you are looking to save a few bucks and don’t necessarily need the capabilities of the M-LOK system, the MOE handguard should fit the bill. 

Magpul MOE M-LOK AR-15 HandGuard

The Magpul MOE M-LOK hand guard is the next generation of the original Magpul MOE handguard.  The M-LOK system is actually an evolution and standardization of the MOE slot mounting system.  The incorporation of the M-LOK accessory mounting system into this hand guard is the primary distinction between this AR-15 hand guard and the MOE handguard. 

The M-LOK handguard features M-LOK mounting slots at the two, six and ten o’clock positions on the handguard.  This gives you a wide range of options when deciding where to mount your vertical grip, light, laser, or other accessories.

The M-LOK AR-15 hand guard comes in several possible configurations that you can choose based on your needs.  For instance, the M-LOK handguard comes in three sizes.  There is a carbine length, mid-length and rifle-length to choose from, based on the gas system length of your rifle.  In addition to these separate lengths, you can also choose from a wide variety of colors. These hand guards are available in the typical Magpul colors; black, flat dark earth, olive drab green and stealth gray.

One of the more interesting safety features found on this item is the extended from lip.  This slight extension is designed to protect the users hand from accidentally touching the gas block, which can reach tremendous temperatures.

In addition to the front protective lips, Magpul has an additional provision to deal with heat.  The Magpul M-LOK hand guard has an integrated heat shield.  An aluminum heat shield is permanently riveted to the inner portion of the handguard o prevent excessive heat from reaching the polymer.  This makes shooting more comfortable and protects the polymer from potentially damaging heat.

These handguard are designed as a direct factory replacement for the standard plastic AR-15/M16 hand guards.  With this in mind, these hand guards utilize the existing front hand guard retaining cap, as well as the existing delta ring.
