The Magpul MOE hand guard is an ergonomic, lightweight unit designed to enable effective control of an AR-15 under stress. The trapezoidal cross-section and gripping ridges enable a secure hold on the weapon in rapid or auto fire and the hand is protected by an aluminium heat shield and a front lip and side extension prevent the hand touching the hot gas block or barrel.  during sustained rapid fire. The integral aluminum heat shield of this MOE M-4 hand guard protects hand from the hot barrel, while side extensions and a pronounced lip at the front edge prevent the hand from slipping forward onto the hot gas block.
