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

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.

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?
