    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.

    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?

    You can use a set screw FSP and shave your existing FSP to fit under the MOE HG. I don't know if the shaven FSP will fit under it though. Do you already have the mid length MOE? What color HG were you going w/?

    just checking. I had a OEM style middy in the parts box I would have sent you for the price of postage. It sounds like you have everything except the FPS. If you're looking to get it done fast you may want to get a set screw FSP until you can get the holes pinned for a PSP.

    I really think you should just stick w/ the carbine length HG as well but if you must do it I have a set screw FSP I can sell you for $30 shipped. I paid over twice that.

    The link worked for me. It's a link to a carbine MOE.

    Go to Amazon and type in a search for ar-15 carbine foreend. You'll get plenty, all for well under fifty including shipping and handling, and in stock.
