Specifically designed and purpose built for mil-spec AR15 and M16 upper receivers with ambidextrous charging handles, the Forward Controls Design Low Drag Forward Assist (LDFA) is a snag-free rimless forward assist with a small footprint. The design philosophy of the LDFA follows the evolution of life on planet: things that are useful and often called on become more prominent, things that are rarely used either become smaller, or disappear in time.
There has been ongoing discussions regarding the relevance of the forward assist. Like it and use it, or not, it is found on standard AR upper receivers. Forward Controls Design doesn't want the forward assist to go away - it is better to have it and not need it, than the other way around. The LDFA does not have a rim on the plunger and is smaller than a standard forward assist. More importantly, on an AR15 or M16 equipped with an ambidextrous charging handle, when the user pulls on the right latch to load or reload the weapon, the rimless design allows for fluid rearward movement of your hand and charging handle, without snagging your finger or fingernail - smooth as glass.
Precision machined from grade 2 titanium, the Forward Controls Design LDFA-TIT weighs only 0.430 oz (standard forward assist weighs 0.715 oz) and is a must-have upgrade for any upper receiver. The LDFA is available in two other finishes: black nitrided 4340 steel and black DLC titanium. We, at Tactical Link, feel the LDFA represents a palpable degree of detail, thought and intent that Forward Controls Design puts into their products.
