All in all this is a pretty standard forward assist with the head slimmed down to be flush, giving you a nice snag-less part. It is a well made, high quality part, and functions as it should.
Personally I don't particularly think this part offers any significant improvement over the regular forward assist but it does give your rifle a slightly slicker feel; especially when used in conjunction with an ambidextrous charging handle.
All that said, in my opinion the price tag is a little too high to consider this a practical purchase, however, it's a quality part, it functions well, and as advertised. So if your specifically interested in this type of part for your AR you can't go wrong here.
