Certainly, part of the iconic look of an AR-15 is the forward assist. It quietly lays alongside the upper, waiting for the time when you need it. When that time comes, it has to work every time without undue effort on your part. The San Tan Tactical forward assist is designed to do just that. Perform every time, without fail.

When Push Comes To Shove

San Tan Tactical machines their Ultra Grip Forward Assist from solid steel which is then hardened and treated to a Black Nitride shell. This gives you a critical component for your AR that is going to be a part of your life for life. The super hardened surface moves like glass, bringing superior corrosion and wear resistance to the game.

You will note that the business end of the San Tan Tactical forward assist is textured for positive engagement. This makes closing your rifle's action an afterthought, instead of a chore. San Tan Tactical has beveled the edges of your Ultra Grip Forward Assist, therefore, if you're not wearing gloves your hands won't feel the bite when you have to use it.

Without having to look, you will feel its textured end beneath your hand, just a little push and you're in action.
