    Not really. Id try a google search and see what you find. Their release dates seem hit and miss. This topic is all over the place. I just cant remember what the latest is.

    It is my understanding that Magpull does not issue release dates, it goes out when it is done. This is because then people yell and scream if the release date is not made

    got some inside scoop, word on the street is that Magpul had some pre-production issues with the product, when that's fixed they should start shipping.

    take it for what it's worth.

    they just released MOE iphone covers, my guess is they've spent their time and equipment on those rather than rifle components lately.

    Maybe because there aren't a ton of rifle length shooters banging down their doors for one? But there sure are a lot of IPhone users out there. :dunno:

    I've actually been needing a new case for my iPhone, and those are cheaper than most.... They available in FDE?

    I've had a set on order for going on 2 months now. When I originally placed it Brownell's cust. svc. said the ETA was late Dec. Obviously that's come and gone.

    More info (but not much) HERE.

    I think MOE hand guards are ugly as sin.

    That's what I thought at first. After putting one on my 22lr upper, I ended up with one on my other two uppers also. Give it a chance and you won't look back.

    Spoke to Magpul yesterday at the Shot show. Rifle length should be in stock within about 2 weeks +-. Hope so, I am waiting also! The main thing that I noticed at the SS, is a turning point in the design of railed forends. It appears that the "in" thing is a simpler forend with rails only where you want them. I say it's about time, I really hate the 4 railed forend on one of my rifles. I put a light, a side sling mount, and maybe a vert grip. The rest of the real estate goes into covers, what a waste, not to mention a bit of extra weight. I really like the MOE forend as it is simple, place rails where you want them, and good price.

    Yup, I think the MOEs are the ultimate cheap, non-FF handguard, and the Troy VTAC are the cat's ass for a FF tube.

    Where are they made? That may have a lot to do with the ETA BS...
