Mp15 sport owner, what do i need to install magpul mid length moe handgaurd?

I just picked up my first MP15 sport. I have the magpul stock and grip in OD Green and I can't find a carbine length moe OD green handgaurd anywhere! They are all sold out everywhere. I can find the mid length moe handgaurds everywhere tho, so if I want to put that on what parts would I need?

I believe these are it;?

Mid length gas tube.
New gas block, (or could I use stock mp15 front sight/gas block )?

Thanks in advance guys, ryan

The gas vent on the barrel would be in the wrong place, carbine length barrel would have a vent at carbine length, a gas tube and handguard all at the appropriate length.

To change over to a mid length, you would need a barrel with the vent hole in the mid length position, then the gas tube and handguard to match. That could get a bit expensive.

Your best bet is to wait it out.

Wow I didn't even think of that. That's a rookie mistake on my part. That's why I'm here! Thank you, sir!

MOEŽ SL Hand Guard, Carbine-Length ? AR15/M4

I suck at posting links, but if you have the standard A2 front post, Magpul has them in stock. It isn't the standard shorty you see all over the place either
