    I had both my MOE forearms off tonight and one bottom wont fit on the other top , and the tops, one is a little bit taller than the other by about 1/2" and the top slots are longer on one than the other , Did they make a change at some point in time ?

    They do authorized the reproduction of their stuff to airsoft companies. There have been mixups in the past. Plus you always have the Chinese knock-offs.

    If I remember correctly both have the same length gas system. My memory isn't much to go on however.

    I guess I should have stated that both sets came on factory uppers not that means anything , they are both carbine length , I did notice that one set seemed a little thinner , not really any more flimsy, just thinner. That set came off of a older gun also thats why I asked if they had possibly made a change , they arent any wider or longer just a bit taller with different holes in the top . When I tried to put one top on the other bottom it was about 1/4" from actually fitting in the other one . I guess I should have taken pictures

    I believe the made a change a couple years ago changing the dimensions a bit so that it could clear most piston designs.

    I had a newer carbine moe fde on my piston. I did take it upon myself to call around LGS to find fresh inventory to buy it, because Maggy neglected to differentiate the two versions.

    No experience wth the older version.
