Strike Industries AR Extended Forward Assist



Occasionally, a bolt is not fully seated and prevents proper firing. If you want better control and the ability to fix this issue quickly, the Strike Industries forward assist is an excellent addition to your rifle. This device is anodized and comes in red, black, blue, or FDE. It is compatible with the DPMS pattern AR-10 and Mil-Spec AR-15 upper receivers.

Operate With a Larger Surface Area

Although many forward assist devices are smaller, rounder or tapered, this extended forward assist is wider. Also, the color choices make it possible to blend with your rifle if you want it to look uniform or contrast with it if you want to maximize visibility.

Shoot With More Confidence

In addition to ensuring that you can easily put your bolt into place, you have more confidence in maneuverability with this extended forward assist. Its L-shaped ergonomic design enhances control and makes it easier to manipulate.

Enjoy Durability Without Weight Concerns

While adding a useful feature often means adding more weight to your firearm, the Strike Industries forward assist is lightweight with its 6061-T6 aluminum body. However, the pawl is made from steel to ensure durability and engagement reliability. This assures you that you are buying a high-quality part for a new build or an addition.

  • Nice, but delicate.

    Adds a great look to my AR, but boy is it delicate. Scratches easy and really disappointing. But product looks good and works well. Just wish it was more durable.

  • Black Looks Great, Functional: 5/5

    Posted by AZ on 6th Aug 2021

    I personally love the way this particular Strike Industries Forward Assist looks. Its not flashy or gaudy and, in my opinion, it doesn't give my rifle the sense of being "cheap". It's very functional and the extended surface area allows for easier use of the forward assist over a standard mil-spec circular equivalent. Overall, great looking product that has slightly more function over a mil-spec equivalent and doesn't make my rifle build look cheap. 5/5 would recommend.

  • Perfect Forward Assist

    Posted by Derek on 14th Mar 2021

    The Strike Industries Forward Assist is a great product. Well made. Lightweight. Great feel. Nice finish. Perfect fit on my Smith and Wesson M&P 15 Sport II. Just bought another one for my wife's AR. Strike Industries makes some nice items.
