MOE SL MID LENGTH HANDGUARDS.
Just got some MOE SL Mid Length hand guards for my rifle. Love the Hand guards and the slim feel is awesome. Question. Why do these Mid length hand guards us a ROUND HAND GUARD RETAINING CAP? Just about most Mid Length Uppers use a TRIANGULAR HAND GUARD RETAINING CAP. I wish this was stated before hand as a warning. Got the problem resolved, but figured people should know. Just checked out BCM Website for Mid Length Uppers and they all seem to have TRIANGULAR HAND GUARD RETAINING CAPS.
because the lower corners of the triangle retaining cap prevent the slim, low profile style of the hand guard. Those corners are wider than the part of the hand guard that goes around the front sight base.
They do specify it on the website on the product page. Luckily for me I already had a round one. I also love the Slimline feel.
