Made in U.S.A. Hand Guard counts as one US compliance part for 922(r).

- Slots securely at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions.
- Reinforced and heat-resistant polymer build.

The Magpul MOE AK-47 Handguards are specifically designed in order to simply drop in as replacements for regulr stock parts and accessories without any real form of modification to the firearm itself. The top gas tube of the Magpul MOE AK-47 handguard simply turns and slots directly into place and provides a solid and secure feel. Unfortunately at this time, Magpul currently do not offer a top picatinny rail version in order to utilise a red dot sight, but the MOE AK-47 Handguard does feature an internal heat shield which can also serve as tightly sprung tensioned handguard retainer which can significantly increase the overall rigidity of the handguard itself.For many individuals and firearm enthusiasts, the MOE AK-47 Handguard from Magpul will no doubt be one of the most popular of the AK handguards, this is simply because it requires no form of professional fitting or expensive tools in order for it to seat correctly upon your firearm. It may need just a few taps from a small rubber hammer in order to seat in place at the very most, which isn’t a big problem at all. The Magpul AK-47 Handguard can also be effortlessly modified in order to fit other fitment needs too! All of the Magpul MOE AK-47 Handguards are designed and fashioned fully as M-LOK accessory compatible at the respectable positions of 3', 6', and 9' o'clock.
Much like all of Magpul’s premium-quality products they are exceptionally well designed and thought out. Many users and fans of the Magpul brand and its products may be a little confused as to why Magpul never provided an optic mount as a variable option, nevertheless, Magpul did specifically recommend and produce in compatibility for the popular UltiMAK optic mounts. The Magpul MOE AK-47 Handguard is definitely not one of the typical, budget, and loose fitting handguards that predictably fall off your firearm once you pull the gas block cover off, they are also not accessories that you will likely be pulling off and on during regular firearm cleaning.
