If you want a lighter and better replacement forward assist for your AR-15 or M-16, consider this low drag forward assist by Forward Controls Design. Forward Controls Design is committed to producing ergonomically-designed products for its customers. The company was formerly a partner with Battle Arms Development and has since branched out on its own to provide customers with improved product designs and superior parts for the AR and SCAR systems.
This low drag forward assist features a snag-free design and is specifically designed for ARs with ambidextrous charging handles. The rimless design of this forward assist permits the user of an ambidextrous charging handle to use the right latch without snagging the finger or the fingernail.
Forward assists are commonly featured on AR upper receivers and are used to return the bolt to the firing position should it fail to close on its own. It can also be used during operations requiring a certain amount of stealth, as it permits the bolt to be closed quietly.
The titanium version of this forward assist ensures its durability for years to come. It is also available in a black oxide configuration made from 17-4 stainless steel.
