The Magpul MOE M-LOK AR-15 Handguard is a Drop-In Carbine Length Polymer HandGuard that is M-LOK compatible. Due to the polymer construction, this handguard is able to come in at a discount price. This handguard is easy to install and utilizes your existing delta ring and front handguard retainer.
The M-LOK Advantage
The M-LOK accessory mounting system is the next evolution of weapon mounted accessories. This negative space mounting system allows you to easily attach your M-LOK compatible accessories to your handguard in a fast and efficient manner. Although similar, the main difference between the M-LOK system and the competing KeyMod accessory mounting slots is that the M-LOK system is able to be used on polymer handguards, such as this MOE carbine handguard. Magpul has an ever increasing line of M-LOK compatible accessories and due to the design being open source, the industry is also making more and more M-LOK accessories available.
This polymer MOE handguard was engineered with the purpose of being use on an AR-15/M16. The MOE M-LOK rail is easy to install and is a drop-in replacement for the stock plastic carbine-length handguard found of AR-15’s and M16’s. The handguard has enough clearance that it is compatible with most piston-driven AR rifles, as well as AR-15’s with a direct impingement gas system.
Built for Duty
Magpul is well known for producing quality equipment that can stand up to hard use. This handguard is no different. Magpul uses a tough heat and impact resistant polymer that will give you a long service life. The handguard has an integrated heat shield to assist with heat dissipation. The heat shield is aluminum for effective heat transfer and Is riveted into place to ensure ultimate reliability.
Because Magpul knows that you like to run your gun hard, they have included and added safeguard. The front partition of the handguard has been extended on the sides along side of your gas block and front sight base. This helps to shield your hand from the hot gas block if it gets too close.
