They are going to be changing the size of the slots in the MOE handguards. More importantly, they are offering the specifications for free to any manufacturer who wants them, in order to build up accessories and mounting options.
So, IWC. Will you be making updated mounts, I hope?
As you know, I founded the company on May 5th, 2010, by launching with five parts designed for the MOE right here on ARFCOM. Since then, we've grown to over 80 separate components for a variety of slings and rifles, including new MOE compatible parts.
In 2010, Magpul made the MOE with a flat top, and only in carbine length, with a specific slot spacing. Then they redesigned Carbine when the launched the Mid & rifle length, changing the top, & slot length. We've designed parts to meet these changes
The Partners (Finance, R&D, Manufacturing) & I met this afternoon for a few hours and discussed M-Lok. We've got a solution figured out that's really simple that we'll refine over the next months and be ready when the new MOE's are.
After all, we coined the term "Direct Attach Mount" which MOUNT-N-SLOT, so how could we not make something better than they can?
