One of the easiest improvements you can make on your AR-15 is replacing the standard round hand guards with a drop in modular hand guard system. The MOE hand guard is lightweight, solid, and accepts magpul rail sections to add lights, grips, bi-pods, and other accessories, without the added weight of other quad-rail systems.
The Magpul MOE Hand Guard for AR15/M16 rifles combines the light weight of a standard hand guard with modular flexibility. Designed with versatility in mind, slots at the two, six, and ten o’clock positions allow the attachment of optional Picatinny rail sections and other accessories for mounting tactical lights, slings, grips, etc. Reinforced, heat-resistant polymer construction provides operational durability without the weight and expense of an aluminum rail hand guard. Front extensions and lower lip provides additional operator protection from hot front sight assembly.
Magpul Original Equipment (MOE) is a line of firearm accessories designed to provide a high-quality, economical alternative to standard weapon parts. The MOE line distinguishes itself with a simplified feature set, but maintains Magpul engineering and material quality.
