Default AR furniture Question

Well, I'm getting ready to order the furniture I need for my AR project.
The rifle is going to be all Magpul MOE, (a good friend already gave me the middie handguard) but I have a few questions.

I am trying to decide on the grip. and I'm stuck between two choices. The Magpul MOE, and the Magpul MIAD.

Is the MIAD worth the extra money (I'll have the MOE anyway because I'm buying a kit), or would I be better off just going with the standard MOE? (Note: I have big hands, just thought I'd through that in incase that info was needed. )

Also, My AR is going to be a middie, and like I said, already have the handguard. Would this carbine kit work with it? I thought I'd ask since it would save me a little money plus I'd have a extra carbine handguard for future builds.

Thanks in advance.

I forget which exact one I got, but I got the one that will hold an additional bolt and firing pin. I like that idea as opposed to their other offerings.

I have the MAID on mine. I think it is the better of the two. I upgraded from the MOE to it.

Ok, I think I'll go with the MIAD then.

How about the other question. Will that carbine stock kit (minus the handguard) work perfectly well on a middie AR? (yes, I am a newby to ARs. )

there's a link to it in my original post. Never mind though. I think I figured it out. I'm guessing that when they said carbine, it was referring to the hand guard, and the fact that the stock is adjustable.
I also found just the stock and buffer tube assembly, and it's only $60 (it's on backorder, but I don't mind waiting), so I'm going to get it instead.

Thanks for the help everyone.

just make sure you get the milspec tube, if you ever goota buttstroke a fool invading your home its less likely to break than a commercial buffer tube. make sure the castle nut has cutouts for staking not all do, no cutout makes proper staking a little harder.
