  2. Red forward assist Rugger 556 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2018

    Awesome super fast shipping makes the pistol looks so updated works like a charm.the trick i used to install was but alot of electrical tape around pins so you dont scratch you upper.then used a punch from the top .make sure to put the punch again from the top to align with forward assist and put the pin from the bottom i had to push in the forward assist in just a little bit to make sure the pin was not hitting the side and it goes right in one of the best and easiest upgrade you can do and the red goes good with my fde furniture i have on my ruger..

  3. A must for every AR rifle or pistol you build 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2018

    I have many of these forward assist and never did one in FDE, and absolutely love it and every rifle or pistol I build has to have pne

  4. Good weight, but form needs work 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    Great price and weight, but I'm not a fan of the little claws.
    I wish they would offer a low profile/no snag version.
    I may just grind the top off.

  5. Nice look 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2017

    These look better than OEM/MILSPEC FA
    Same form, fit, and function.

  6. Outstanding 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2017

    Great fit and finish. Aggressive texturing and looks phenomenal as an accent point

  7. Good product over all 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2017

    It's a great product over all. I like that fax oh can choose between Afew colors. And most of all it's easy to install took me about 5 minutes to pop the forward assist in to place. Have not had a chance to shoot it yet sense I put it on

  8. Blue line 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    Looks good on my build only complaint doesnt really match the blue endplate. I expected that even says on strike industries website that the andozing going to be different. Wing tactical as always quick shipping great company.

  9. Forward Assist 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2017

    I like the newer design and looks sweet on my 556 Upper

  10. Love the Red Line from Strike Industries 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    Ordered several of the Strike Industries "red line" components, including this forward assist, for my new 300 build. Looks great, easy install, light weight, and Wing Tactical provided it quickly with great customer service.

  11. AWESOME! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    It's a rarity to find the trifecta of good price, good quality and good looks. Strike Industries hit the mark with this item.

  12. Good looking and functional 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2017

    This is a nice piece of bling for my rifle. Works great and matches the blue SI enhanced castle nut and end plate on my blue accented build.

  13. Very nice custom touch 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2017

    This is a very nice, well built forward assist. It's​ easy to install and looks really good on my rifle. Was it necessary? Yes, because I like the custom look and it makes my rifle unique.

  14. Nice look 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2017

    Looks much better than regular milspec forward assist. It's a little sharp so it might hurt a little if you were to pound on it without gloves, but overall definitely a thumbs up.

  15. Would buy again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2017

    Good grip, easy to install. I would highly recommend this again if you like how it looks.

  16. Black FA, Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2017

    I got the black Lightweight Forward Assist for my first AR build ever, and when it was on it gave my gun an aggressive look. Be warned, if you do have soft hands like I do, use gloves when using this. The prongs aren't sharp, but they will hurt if your hands are soft. But other than that, PERFECT!

  17. SI Lightweight Forward Assist - Blue 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2017

    SI designed a very unique-looking forward assist. I was looking for something a little different and when I saw this one, I knew this was it. This is my second SI Forward Assist. The first one I bought was red. Couldn't be happier with it. It functions as it should but if you buy these, let's face're getting it mainly for looks. The second one I bought was the blue one and the only negative thing I can say about it is that the blue color isn't as bright as in the pictures I've seen of it on any website. It's a bit darker or a little dull I guess. Just FYI, it does not match my Battle Arms Development Mag Release Button. Other than that, I'm lovin it.

  18. Add some bling 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2016

    I didn't need to replace my forward assist but I'll be honest the red looks good on my gun. Well made product that functions well and easy to install.

  19. Look nice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    Bought this for looks and they do look great , oh yeah and they work like all forward assist, Why pay for expensive forward assists when these look better. Have black and red . Never had to use them for function all my guns run 100percent

  20. Does Not Fit Properly. 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2016

    Bought this like many, to add some style to my build. However, it fits but does not work properly in my Ruger AR556. Comparing it to the factory one. It is slightly different. Upon installing it, it hangs up somewhere inside and it does not function properly. It is not me, as I can reinstall the factory one over & over without issue. As soon as I put this one in, it jams and needs to be jimmied to get it to go forward just about every time. Simply in my gun or my case. It does not work.

  21. Great hole filler 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Oct 2016

    I understand that for the average AR guy, we keep our rifles clean. So we will never need the forward assist to make our rifles go bang. On another rifle I have a bush master tear drop assist. I like it for function, however the last build I did I used this F. Assist. It looks really cool, and you do have good traction if you need to use this. Highly recommend this item for fit and function.

  22. Forward assit 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2016

    I am satisfied with this forward assit, looks good on my HK. Color matches the other red strike industries acessories I have perfect. Only complaint is have is that red color comes off rarely easy. The rest of their anodized products are pretty sturdy. Can't beat their price.

  23. Premium Quality & great looks! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2016

    Strike Industries quality with a little color to dress up my OD green AR pistol.

  24. the deans list 4 Star Review

  25. Forward assist 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2016
