    Question To MOE or not to MOE

    This is my question. Subject : 6920

    Looking to replace my handguard. I have read the other thread, with basicly the same question.

    Im not looking for a ladder rail and Im leaning tword the MOE.

    My question is ... What am I missing here? What is available out there?

    The Magpul MOE @ $30.00

    or

    DD Omega @ $260.00

    This is quite a price gap, no? What am I missing

    Thankyou

    My question would be, what do you want the hand guards to do? What is your goal? Why do you want to change them out? Answer these questions and now you can look specifically at models that fill those purposes.

    Plastic, non free floating minimal rail space, short less hand space, less money

    or

    DD Omega @ $260.00

    12 in of free rail space top ,left, right or bottom, free float, allows for extended hand placement, more durable more space more freedom more money

    Both serve their intended purpose, get what you need and want. when building a possible life saving tool price should take a back seat to quality if you think you want a rail buy it now because selling shit you bought to buy better shit never workouts for you.
    Remember buy one cry once

    With a DD rail you can run it over with a truck and throw it out of a helicopter and it will protect the gas tube. I have both the DD Ris ii and a MOE carbine hand guard and I like both for what they are. The only reason I picked up a MOE though was to mount a light. Other than that its not much different than a stock hand guard .

    Why?

    Why do you need a rail. Plan to hang a laser or light off of it?

    6920's are very light, handy and reliable. Unless you need to tacicol it out, I would leave it as is.

    Personaly I think the MOE looks like cheap shit like most of magpul's gear.

    If you want a decent rail for good money, look into a KAC RAS. They wont require any modification and are around $150 bucks if you look. Same rail thats on most m4carbines in the .mil.

    When it comes to rifles, lighter is better, all things being equal.

    Blasphemy

    I am very satisfied with MOE furniture, and prefer it to standard GI handguard and stock. IMHO, everyone who tries to justify a freefloat on a carbine is either over-estimating their shooting ability or has too much money to waste. If you are able to change your POI due to forces on the handguards at carbine shooting distances, you need to seriously re-evaluate your form and support of the rifle. I fully expect to feel the heat after this post Good luck with your furniture choice. MOE all the way.

    Thankyou for you reply
    Maybe a light, maybe. I do like the QD socket idea & would use it.

    Id like to change them out because they just feel 'fat'. Not to mention it reminds me of one of my first rifle style BB guns, kinda cheap-ish.

    Usage.. Steel, local range and I own my land and am willing to drop any coyote I see. No hunting

    I have a 15-22 for the opossum, we had an entire family this year.
    I mow with a 22A1 with 5.5 HB for the rock-chucks (little chip-n-dale looking ground rat/mole/thing)
