Mounted on standard flattop AR carbine length Pros: Alows forward (thumb up) placement with hand under front sight; slim profile; lightweight Cons: little tricky to get on, does not work well with standard delta ring tool, where handguard covers delta ring binds with tool. Burris PEPR mount cannot be installed fully forward as top of hand guard hits tapper front of PEPR. Can be mounted 2 slots back.Still leaves plenty of room for a Nikon p-223 3-9x40. Overall a great option to keep weight down and still have some accessory mounting options (vertical grip, light etc.)

Ordered this to replace my standard hand guards on my psa at rifle kit. Very good quality, much bettter feel now. Had a slight issue getting the guard on but YouTube helped me with that. Put 200 rounds through the gun with it on and had no issues, never got hit or anything.

These are a great, inexpensive way to increase the grip length of a carbine forearm, allows the shooter to use a c-clamp grip if they like that method. The stock carbine FSB sling swivel is covered and unusable, but there are many options for mounting slings directly to the handguard. Installation is fairly simple if you're the type who reads instructions

I decided to avoid a quad rail for my carbine and go for a hand guard but was concerned that it would not support the accessories I wanted to add to the gun. The Magpul MOE Slim has exceeded my expectations. Easy to assemble, accessories go on with little effort and the heat shield keeps the handguard comfortable throughout.

I'll keep it simple. I admit I Have not actually shot the rifle with this on, but I cannot imagine what could go wrong as the fit and solidity feels better than the stock M4 type hand guard, which I never had an issue with. Pros- Provides a noticeable increase in the amount of space available for your grip. You can move your support hand up essentially to right under the front sight post and it feels solid and secure. -Grip itself feels better to me. The oblong shape is thinner than the round style and I found it facilitates a better grip. I don't C-clamp though so can't say how it works with that -Allows accessorizing due to the M-lok slots. Now working handstops, vert grips, flashlight mounds or other hardware to the front is pretty simple. Tons of m-lok stuff out there, as well as m-lok rails for other items. -Looks way better IMO. It really modernizes the rifle's look in a pretty dramatic way. -lightweight. I don't know the grams, but there was no noticeable difference between the stock grip and this. Cons - It is a bugger to get on. Not the end of the world, but it did take a couple of guys a few minutes. In other words, there are much harder aspects of modding your rifle, but this was harder than I expected. -You have to remove the front sling loop. We drilled it out, but if you look on you-tube you can use a brass hammer to pound it out if you are careful. I didn't care because there are many options for m-lok sling mounts, or if you have an old-school sling... Read More...

Easy to install. Chose the stealth gray to go along with MOE pistol grip, MOE-SL AR-15 stock and polymer trigger guard. This is for a light weight economy build for the wife for target practice and home defense.

If you are looking for a simple upgrade to your standard handguard then this Magpul MOE SL is a great option. Very sturdy and great quality. This is not a substitution for a free floating handguard by any means but it makes a great substitution for the stock handguard that came on my Rugar AR 556.

If you have never used or felt the glory that is Magpul now is the time... the fit and finish is always flawless, unparalleled durability and comes in the best colors with gray furniture set up truly adds a unique design I highly recommend to any one looking for top line setup.

I’m really happy with this. I’m new to the AR platform having recently purchased the Palmetto State Freedom Rifle. It came with that sort of fat stubby hand guard. I like how thin this one is. I was worried that it would be difficult to install, especially with my limited experience. It was very simple.

It allows me to add goodies to the handgaurd that the original does not allow.Itr is well made The only negative is that I must remove the front sling swivel on the barrel, But they do have a product that will solve the problem.

Well designed and manufactured hand guard was simple to install with no specialized tools to replace the milspec hand guard. This guard was designed with a lower heat shield only (no upper shield) and after as few as 30 rounds fired within 3 minutes will result in noticeable temperature increase along the top of the guard. This doesn't reduce my appreciation for this product but having a upper shield could benefit those who fire a significantly greater number of rounds in a short timeframe.

Fits perfect and tight, and looks good. The extended portion that goes under the front A2 sight is great for a extended grip for carbine guys. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to upgrade theor stock handguard. Optics planet was very fast shipping. Will buy from again without hesitation!

One of Magpul's best. Slim and ergonomic. Easy to install yourself. Provides many accessory attachment options via the M-LOK system. Extended front covers the gas block, protecting your hand from touching it when it's hot. Virtually no added weight. Wobbles less than stock handguard. Looks cool!

I have a pair of S&W M&P15's that I mounted these on. One is setup for CQB and the other is scoped. At the time I never shot with gloves and noticed my hand was occasionally pushing up to the edge of the gas block, and of course that baby gets HOT! I didn't want to go and spend all the money for a full floating setup with a low profile gas block, but wanted to be able to extend my grip out. I also wanted to keep my rig as light as possible. This is a perfect solution for that. No, they are not easy to install, but I did it without a delta ring tool...just take your time and try not to kill your fingertips. But once on, they are solid and seem just as tight as S&W parts. I like the slim look and feel, and the plastic is rougher than the stock parts. They are light, but still 2oz heavier than stock. I made up for an ounce of that by grinding off the A2 sight. Of course to get the forward protection you have to lose access to the sling mount. Plan on *another* $20+ for a suitable MOE attachment.

I cant recommend this drop in hand guard enough. A bit of a pain to install but the outcome is great. The diameter of this hand guard allows you to run a thumb over grip as well as being able to extend your hand further under the gas block.The hand guard extends back onto the delta ring for more comfort if you like to hold onto the mag well when shooting.

Great product, Looks Great. If this is the first time you are replacing your hand guard, I would recommend buying an AIM Sports AR15 Delta Ring Wrench Removal Tool, it will help you press down on the delta ring to remove and install the hand guard.

I was unsure whether this would fit my carbine length AR. Sent OP an inquiry. Two types are available and not knowing sight unseen I ordered both after finding out both would work on my gun. I returned this one and had no problem receiving a prompt refund. I own several Magpul products and have found all to be of top quality and good fit and finish. Iv'e also ordered more than a few times products from Optics Planet and highly recommed Optics Planet. Good selection, good prices, quick shipping, and top notch responsive customer service.

Great feel, Great Color in Olive Drab with just enough flexibility containing the M-LOK system. It's shape is comfortable for both my wife and I, with her hands being tiny and mine large.The color is consistent and match the other parts. It is lighter that the original helping to compensate for the additional weight added with the Halosun 30mm red dot with laser. The wife "had to have" the laser.

Magpul MOE SL carbine length M-LOK handguard is awesome. The hardest part was removing the factory handguard and placing this one on. However, the M-Lok system ease of use for mounting accessories make this a no brainer. I plan on installing on all of my long guns.

Replaced the factory handguard on a carbine length S&W M&P sport 2 with this one from Magpul. They always seem to make good stuff. I like the extra length and it fits really night and snug. No rattles or movement. It’s not the easiest thing to get on with a delta ring tool but it’s possible.

I am a big fan of Magpul products. I have not been able to break any yet. I do not care for standard round handguards, and prefer even the MOE Slimline over the standard MOE. I am waiting for them to release the midlength version. That having been said: if you install their M lok rail sections, you will have to file a relief on the edge of the aluminum heat shield, because it will catch on the metal attachment nut inside the upper. I have installed two of these, and meticulously followed directions, slowly and carefully tried to finesse the lower on past the nut without catching it (the (heatshield), orienting the nut parallel, and then at right angles to the rail. It will catch. If you force it, it will deform the edge of the heatshield. Look, this ain't my first rodeo, I'm pretty sure it aint me. The Slimline design does not give you much clearance. An easy fix. I will buy again.

I like the handguard very much, especially compared to standard CAR handguards. Along with the slim profile, it is a couple inches longer than other handguards and allows a more forward grip. The MLok attachment points at 2, 6, and 10 o'clock allow easy attachment of handstops, lights, or whatever else you want. IMHO, the best replacement handguard out there. A couple caveats: you need to remove the sling swivel from the FSB. It's also a VERY tight fit, so a delta ring tool comes in handy. Doesn't hurt to check you tube for installation tips as well.

Slim, feels good, looks good for anyone looking for an entry level handguard. I am big into the magpul line. They make great and affordable parts. Install is a piece of cake. Installed it on my ruger 556 which has the screw type delta ring compared to the pull down like the rest of them.

I'm a big fan of Magpul products and have their MOE line on some rifles, but decided to try the slimmer MOE-SL and it's definitely a thinner handguard that I much prefer, will be buying many more. installation was easy, handguard is secure. Installing it does require removing the sling swivel under the A2 front sight but the M-LOk slots give you plenty of places to mount a QD sling mount.

The fit of the Magpul SL hand guard is always excellent. Although somewhat challenging at times to install, the design and feel, in my opinion, are second to none!! Be sure however that your build uses the standard "round" fire end retainer as the SL will NOT fit those with the triangular retainer. The round retainers can be purchased for under $4 and installed in 30min or so, so don't let that stop you from purchasing the SL. With a myriad of attachments and adapters, the Magpul products are an excellent choice.

I never did like the original Magpul handguard. Too bulky for my hand, so I had been using an A2 type guard. When I saw this I was a little hesitant, but I'm really happy with it. It's slim, covers a lot of the rifle, and is pretty to look at. It's a little more difficult to install if you don't have the proper tool, I managed to pinch my finger, but well worth it. Highly recommended.

Install took less than a minute even without a delta ring tool. Fit is perfect and the handguard is light weight. My only gripe is the fact that with a railed gas block, it is going tp take some dremeling to place a flip up front sight. If you have a front sight post gas block, you will be fine but the sling mount will have to come off.

The MLOK handguard is very sturdy, there is no flexing when mounted on my rifle and provides a solid base for MLOK attachments. The fit on my M&P Sport was very tight at the Delta ring so be careful that you don't get pinched putting the halves on the rifle. A really nice replacement for the stock handguards.

This is once again another Magpul very high quality product. Even while using a Brownell’s AR15 handguard removal tool this was a very tight fit. The top went in no problem, the bottom needed a little more effort. Once installed this is the best 2-piece polymer handguard I've come across. Solid and no rattles. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone. Just waiting on an M-LOK QD sling mount to show up now.

Got this for Christmas. I love Magpul products. Awesome quality. To install this it's important to read the instructions because doing so. It does go on a certain way. Top piece first and then the bottom. Good instructions came with it. You may need help installing it if you do not have the tool to push down the delta ring. I don't, but had my son to take care of that will I pulled the old handguard off and putting the new one on. What an improvement over the fill of the gun. Take note if you get the Magpul moe rails they are not all the mlok style. Meaning that they can be put on and taken off with the hanhandguard installed. I picked up some Magpul polymer rail sections when I was at Academy and those kind have to be installed before placing the hand guards on the rifle. Also with the SL moe hand guards they extend under the front sight which I was wanting. But take note that if your rifle has the sling mount there you will need to remove it. Easy to do, just take a chisel and mallet and knock the head off the rivet holding it in.

Definitely get this handguard over the regular MOE drop in. It offers that extra length on the bottom which extends reach and seems to offer more stability. No, it's not as stable as a free float handguard, but that is nearly impossible to achieve with a drop in. However, This comes very close. I honestly don't notice hardly any shift at all. Hopefully that doesn't become a problem after a lot of shooting but we'll see. Big thanks to magpul. I have pretty much all magpul furniture on my gun and I love it all.

Nice and solid handguard, prefer this over a metal (tube) type due to better dispuring of heat and uses MOE stuff. Make sure your handguard has the round ring to slide into and not the triangle type.

This is my first personal AR15 so I was kind of unsure which way to go with a handguard. I knew i wanted a grup for the front, but the metal rail systems i got time with in the military left me wanting to avoid anythibg with uncomfortable sharp edges. Kind of took a risk since i wasnt sure what a plastic handguard surface would be like. Very happy that the chance i took paid off. It's surface has just the right finish to not be slick, it's long enough to cover the front sling mount and come flush to the original front sight post/gas block. The Mlok system is amazing, once you master the adjustment required for mounting. I did end up attaching my Magpul angled grip prior to installing the handguard because it makes it easy to simply look inside and realize how the mounting actually works. Youtube has plenty of videos if you need more help. I'm extremely satisfied with the end look and quality. Feels verrrry solid and glad it leaves room for bayinet lug rail too. Might throw a bipod on under there.

Feels a lot better than the last magpul hand guards. These feel more sleek and allow you hand to reach down the hand guard a little further which I like. Over all weight added onto the gun after installing this is literally unnoticeable.

Replaced my MOE handguard with this one. I like the slim profile of the handguard and you get an extra m-lok mounting point in the bottom, makes it a lot more comfortable to C clamp grip it. The only thing I had to to was punch out my sling swivel in the front and it was perfect.

Installed on a Palmetto State Armory AR-15. Looks good and feels good. At first glance out of the package in hand I was concerned about a gap at the back end between the upper and lower pieces. But that gap gets closed via clamping force from the delta ring during install. It was a little hard to install especially trying to do so with the various "recommendations" provided on YouTube. These included install the top piece first, the bottom piece first, the top and bottom simultaneously. In the end I broke out the magnifying glasses and closely followed the manufacturer's included instructions, and was done first try in about two minutes.

Great upgrade from a standard handguard and the SL provides that extra length for a better finished look and attachment points. Color match was excellent and texture was what you'd expect from Magpul.

My package arrived very fast. I will admit, at first it was very hard to install. They can be a pain in the butt. However, I did find a YouTube video of a guy that perfected his installation technique and after a few tries, it popped in like butter. Like all Magpul products, it is lightweight and tough. I absolutely love how the handguard extends past the front sight post. That really extends your grip. You will have to take your sling mount off, if you have one. Overall solid product at a great price. Only reason that it didn't get 5 stars was the difficult time I had installing it (you will hear others say the same).

I bought the FDE version to match the other furniture on an AR patrol rifle build. It looks great! The extended front protects your hand from the heart generated by the gas block. The slim profile makes it easier for my wife to control the rifle, and the M-LOK slots allow for attachment of rail pieces for a light, VFG, and QD sling attachment point. Overall, you can't beat this high value hand guard!

As always, Magpul works, slim and tight, almost seamless, affordable and also fits around and beyond the front sight post, meaning extended reach of support hand. It is tedious to install, but that gives it the rock solid feel.

Would highly recommend this product. Tight fit making it a little hard to put on however this will not shake or wiggle. Two thumbs up. It also has a heat shield and doesn’t get hot while shooting round after round.
