What are yall's thoughts on the Magpul MOE vs the MOE SL Hand guard? Anyone try BOTH?

Anyone ever moung a QD in a Magpul hand guard, NOT in and M-LOK slot, like just drilling one right in here? I would really rather run the regular non-"SL" style HG both looks and as it is supposedly "fatter" in the hand, and get a QD further back on the HG AWAY from the front of it?

Either is fine, so whichever you prefer. I think the old MOE wasn't M-lok, so beware of that for both the handguard and attachments.

But the sling mounting so far to the rear... I've done once on a full rail and would not recommend. It allowed the sling to interfere with my magazine change.

No, sorry, mounting on the other side - like this -

Prefer the SL, but be warned they can be a little of a pain in the a$$ to mount onto the delta ring and that said it wouldn't stop me from using another if I wanted too.
 

I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

I've used them both. The SL can be kind of a PITA to mount, but not too bad, and it certainly fit nice and tight. Of the two, I tend to use the MOE because I prefer to have a sling swivel. I've seen QD socket holes drilled into the side of MOE handguards, but I've never tried it myself. I would imagine it works OK - it's not like the MLOK slots are reinforced in any way. The MOE would probably give you a little more clearance between the QD stud and barrel.

Maybe psychosomatic but I think the sl felt better both are better than the kac ras if your not running lasers

The SL solves part of the problem with M4/carbine length builds. I like mine. Will see if I can grap a pic of the sling mount I have on mine.

So it looks like I used a MOE QD adapter (comes with cutter to widen the slot) and a QD paraclip adapter.
