Strike Industries HEX Forward Assist



When it comes to customizing your AR style rifle or carbine, there seems to be no limit on variety for buttstocks, pistol grips, handguards and even dust covers. However there is usually one small part that is often overlooked - the AR 15 forward assist.

This custom forward assist by Strike Industries really brings something subtle and unique to the table. With its one of a kind honeycomb look and squared edges, this AR forward assist is the answer for a one-of-a-kind look and highly functional piece. The squared edges and honeycomb pattern not only look good and truly unique, but designed to offer increased traction and assist in the ease of using an AR forward assist. If you have to carry or work with your rifle often, you are almost guaranteed to encounter things like dust, dirt, mud, or even rain and snow while out in the field. Add gloves and a high level of stress into the situation, it is not uncommon to have your thumb or palm slide right off the Mil-Spec AR 15 forward assist while you are trying to slap the bolt carrier group back into a functioning state. And when that happens you can kiss that trophy game animal goodbye, or even worse, put yourself or others in a dangerous and deadly situation when your life is on the line on duty.

This Strike Industries AR forward assist is a great product from a solid company that has a strong military background in creating useful additions designed for those who use them the most.

    piece works ok, feels a little catchy... better after some excessive lube. I removed it and re-lubed it and re-installed it and it was better.
