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.
