Not necessarily, he is talking about an MOE hand guard from magpul which is drop in, not free float. Anyways, i dont think that you can put a midlength MOE on a lo-pro gas block, but who knows, there may be a way.

I think it would be cheaper to order a carbine length MOE than to adjust a non-free float to it.

I did and the guy I ordered it from sent the wrong one and now won't sent the right one

You'd have to have the barrel drilled for pins to mount a FSP at the mid length position then find a gas block low enough to fit under the MOE.

This guy did it

Yes, it's called a dissy or dissapator. It can be done and some places like PSA sell them. BCM has a version w/ the gas port at the carbine postion and a FSP at the mid length position on a 12.5" barrel. The barrels are drilled for pins at both locations.

The version like PSA's MOE dissy is heavy. The MOEs are heavy, the rifle length MOE is really heavy as compared to similar designs.

Is there a reason you're wanting to stick w/ the MOE and go through all of this instead of going w/ a FF rail?
