  • Great piece

    Posted by Marc on 18th Feb 2020

    This piece fits perfectly and the finish is great. It’s a pain to install, but worth it. As others have mentioned the edges are a little sharp.

  • Forward assist

    Posted by Vincent on 2nd May 2019

    I mostly added the forward assist for aesthetic purposes only. It’s a well made piece from Strike and it was a quick and easy install.

  • Completely different shade

    Posted by Keith odom on 20th Jan 2019

    I recently just purchased a charging handle and forward assist the forward assist is so full and does not Match he charging handle one bit. I contacted wing Tactical about the issue and they said the colors may vary depending on batch. It's very upsetting that they can't even guarantee the parts match. I had to take the forward assist off because it looked so horrible.

  • Fits like a glove

  • Red forward assist Rugger 556

    Posted by Joey 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..

  • Good weight, but form needs work

    Posted by Unknown 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.
