    Can the magpul MOE handguard be used on an AR with a gas block (flat-top) or are you limited to its use in conjunction with a fixed front sight model.. I have looked all over the internet and found this question to be asked several times, but I have not found any sort of a straight answer. My assumption is that it can be used with any non-freefloat carbine setup, but I dont want to order the thing if all I cannot use it on my current carbine setup. I am hesitant because of the way the MOE seems to ride the sides of the front sight.

    Input would be greatly appreciated.

    I recently had a CDD-15 fall into my lap and would like to try out the magpul MOE stock and handguard.

    I know the thing is fairly inexpensive and even if, by chance, it didnt work on this gun, I suppose I may well get a fixed front sight gun in the future anyway...

    Any info folks?

    I have the MOE handguard on a SW MP 15 that has a gas block.

    MOE handguards will fit any gun that has standard carbine or M4 handguards.

    The OP's question seems to be weather or not the MOE handguard requires a front hand guard retaining cap (behind the gasblock or sight tower.)

    It does.

    The MOE will not stay in place without the front hand guard retaining cap.

    I have a standard carbine barrel with a brownells (or someone, can't remember the exact brand) picatinny gas block and my Moe's mounted fine.

    I have a good friend who has declared it to be my "star wars rifle" due to the rather unique look of the MOE's.:cuss:

    ForumSurfer, I'd love to see a pic of that if you have one.

    I try to learn something new every day.
