Really, guy? Is it that big of a deal for someone who doesn't know to ask? I mean he could have googled it but then he would have came up with a list of acronyms like Biff posted that has nothing to do with Magpul.

Um...actually I read the list and thought...heck why not have them add magpul. So they got an email for the hell of it

Thanks everyone!
"Magpul Original Equipment" is my answer. Are there non-Magpul MOE parts out there (knock-offs)?

Cool. This acronym list that's fire arms specific doesn't even have MOE on there. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=12&f=1&t=16

There're bunch of airsoft knockoff. Magpul has an Airsoft line, too. They call them PTS.

Oh the horror of having to filter through all the "useless threads". :nopity: The question was in the title, my suggestion would be if you don't like it, don't open the thread. Better yet, don't respond in the thread because you are easily annoyed. :rolleyes:

I didn't know Magpul had an airsoft line....then again, why would I. A quick G--gle search brought up some CTR stocks that cost damn near what a Magpul AR stock costs...

For the OP (original poster), while the "MOE" products from Magpul are their "original equipment," they are now surpassed by their other products. For example, the MOE stock may have been their entry level stock, they now have their CTR stock (i forgot what it means, but magpul's site explains the acros), acr, and some other types of stocks. Same for hand guards, grips, trigger guards, and other products.

Don't let these jackasses keep you from asking questions. Of course, being resourceful enough to find the answers you seek without a thread is ideal. But then, there's probably 5 others who were wondering the same thing, so yeah.

Actually - and someone correct me if I'm wrong - the MOE stuff came out after the superior versions did. So the MIAD and CTR were actually developed before their MOE counterparts, and were then re-engineered to be more affordable.

I'm assuming your asking in regards to the acronym commonly used in the world of AR's

In the case of most posters on this thread it means Male Organ Enhancement. Little blue pills of compressed fish food that they sell on TV for $19.95 with recurring monthly shipments unless canceled at any time. You must have seen the commercials, right between the live streaming babe sex line ads and the Native American Loan Sharks R Us scam. Swallow two pills and its off to the teepee (or is it a wikiup) with the IPad and a bottle of Ten High for night of frolic with Mr. Happy and the fat broad from next door.

Oh dear, nobody probably understands a thing I just typed. :D
