Got this for an AR pistol I'm currently building. Fits perfect into the Combat Armory upper receiver I'm using. I ordered the black one and the black has a nice satin finish to it. Another great product from Strike Industries. Highly recommended if you want a different looking forward assist.

Strike Industries is an awesome company. I love their products. I use them on all of my AR builds. I'm currently working on two AR's simultaneously and I plan on purchasing their lower parts kit. I love the crown forward assist. Strike Industries is standard on all my AR builds.

Decently made to stand out from the others & built to add a little extra style to your rifle if you’re going for a little extra of a notice choosing the colored models is a nice touch along with the many other accessories Strike Industries has to offer.. Definitely the way to go when wanting complete style & quality out of ones product! Item purchased (forward assist) is easy to install along with being a little lighter in weight.. Also a few great clips on YouTube for installation if needed..

Great fit , functions as it is supposed to. I like the FDE color and bought it to match the remaining furniture on my build. I would recommend this product to someone else. The price I bought it for was also a good deal.

I have like three or four of these and love them. For the price they add a little bit of customization to an otherwise boring looking part. Also they come with the spring and roll pin as well! Now I am just trying to get to the 200 character mark. What else can I say, this product is awesome lol!

It looks good and is functional there is not too much else to say. Pros: it looks really good. The product was not hard to install, and it works. Cons: it is pretty stiff and can be hard to push in at some points.

This Forward assist assembly comes with the the spring and the roll pin as well as the forward assist button itself, fit and finish were perfect, and it functions as it should with my Sharps BCG in a Spartan Billet Upper receiver. I have also used these in Aero forged receivers with Wilson Combat BCG's with out an issue...

I have these on all my 308s as the forward assist is not nearly as needed for the larger bore. They remain functional at reduced weight. I have never needed the forward assist on any .308. If your a constant assist jammer then I would recomend a steel assist. In the Army your trained to utilize the assist on the 5.56 platform.

Looks great and price is on point. Install is easy and if you want some contrasting color it is worth the little price. If you want some added color pick up some of Strikes matching parts and it will really look sharp. I have the charging handle and strike switch on my pistol currently.

The SI Oversized forward assist looks great and functions well if ever needed. This was my fourth purchase for an SI fkrward assist and have 3 custom AR Pistol builds that sport the full SI setup in 3 colors. Great products! Keep up the good work.

Really like the strike assist, the texture on the face of the assist is spot on. The machining quality is superb, It is very lightweight feels like it is less than have the weight of a standard forward assist, really like the color, (I bought the blue one) another great product from strike industries.

I build a lot of AR15 theme rifles and it's hard to find parts made partially out of aluminum in all the right places, so you can easily strip the anodize for a natural aluminum look. Or, choose one of the asorted anodized colors. It's lightweight and functions well. Great product...

Great ad on to my 16” and 10.5”, will definitely put in any future builds. Easy to install and quick and gives any ar style rifle a great look over the factory standard looking forward assist function. Only issue I had was trying to get one in black in stock and seemed hard to find at one point but other than that great with no complaints.

Was easy to put in the receiver and looks cool. No sticking, very smooth. Only thang was the roll pin was a b**ch to get in. But after pinchin it down a little it slid right in. Now I'm built and ready to shoot.

This forward assist works just fine in my Andersen upper. However, it's not "FDE." The "F" in "FDE" stands for flat. The paint job isn't flat, it's metal flake. It actually sparkles. The color is also slightly off, more of a metal flake scorched Earth finish. It doesn't match the Strike FDE dust cover at all. I'd be irritated if I put this on a show gun, but it's fine for my fighting gun.

I'm a big fan of strike products and as far as looks go this is no exception - the anodizing is very thick and matches the finish of aero precision receivers exactly - not flat but with some sheen. My only real complaint is are the sharp edges, if you ever had to really use it, it could easily tear up your thumb without gloves.

Easy to install, purchased this with the linkcurved foregrip in FDE. Took less than a minute to install in my ar pistol. Very good looking upgrade, SI parts stand out from the rest and it shows in their design.

This forward assist component was the perfect choice for my new AR build. It is very sleek in design and the finish coat matched well with the Mega upper I put it in too. Installation was very easy and it functions as expected. I'll be using this again on my future builds.

Though it states as “low profile” it’s not really any shorter than any other forward assist. The design on the top has a nice “grab” to it. The red color matches perfect with Odin Works redline parts.

Works as advertised. It went in no problem and I've tested it with no issues driving the BCG home. My only Con if I wanted one is the raised edges on the end are a tad bit on the sharp side, it's really no big deal at all just something I noticed. Yes, I would buy it again.

Well it’s just a good quality forward assist for those looking to accessorize your AR’s as you can get them in many colors... I hit the black on because it’s for a PDW weapon & I simply wanted a better grip for days with gloves on, that this does well.... I had to take one star off simply because it is longer then your standard FA’s so the chances of snagging goes up with this & possibility of braking when dropped too goes up.

I like Strike Industries. I think they make some great looking, high quality products. I’m always impressed with their machining, and even more impressed with their quality at a reasonable price point. I ordered this forward assist in FDE, and as usual, the product was well made and looked great. After installing it, I gave it a function test and realized right away that you should avoid hitting it with the base of the palm of your hand. This forward assist is quite sharp and is legitimately painful to hit with your hand. Using this forward assist requires pushing with your thumb or fingers. Not that big a deal, honestly, I’m not sure if I’ve ever even used a forward assist to slam a round home. If a round doesn’t load, I stop, and fix the problem. Regardless, it should be said that this forward assist hurts if you slam it with your palm. If you hit it hard enough I believe it would break the skin. It’s probably too fancy for a duty rifle, but if your dressing up a competition ar and might actually use it to drive a round home during timed competition then you should be aware of this issue. Otherwise, it looks cool, and does function. If I bought again, I would get their flat/octagonal forward assist.

Bought this for my Spikes Tactical 300 Blackout. Was tired of the same look on all my builds and decided to spicy it up a little. Great quality, excellent price, better feel and texture and it stands out from all the rest. A bit longer than the standard FA but I actually prefer this length.

Strike industries forward assists are amazing. Both strength and beautiful design. Only problem I had wasn’t the item for the botched delivery. If the site tells you it’s in stock then why do I get a notification informing me that the part is currently being ordered? Took a very long time to receive the item.

Very light and looks good. Subtle yet aggressive-looking at the same time. The button texture has a better feel than the standard GI forward assist. The installation was just as easy as the standard part however it seems to rotate in the bore slightly. This isn't noticed with the standard round GI forward assist but I noticed it with this 3-prong version. The function of the forward assist is not affected in any way by the slight rotation. When I testing the forward assist, everything works perfectly.

The FDE color looks fantastic, it functions like it should and it looks sweet on a rifle. my only problem with it is when you go to bump it, it digs into your hand and it don't feel good. when you have gloves on its not as bad.

This isn't the first Strike Industries AR component I've purchased, and it certainly won't be the last. Fit and finish, as to be expected from Strike Industries, is perfect. I have not only zero complaints, but absolutely nothing other than high praises for these forward assists. I plan on installing them on all my other ARs. Get ready, Optics Planet...I'm about to do a bulk order of these.

First off the look and feel of this is great. Second is that the cost and construction of it is just awesome, I will not use any others from this point on. Going to buy a few more to put on next build and to switch out on a older one.

I decided to build an AR with red highlights and wanted to do as much as possible with this Strike Industries red. Unfortunately the receiver extension/buffer tube is never in stock and their enhanced endplate has similiar issues, while also being more than $50. I'm glad I purchased this piece...and have the black version on another rifle. Works as good as a normal one while being the color I wanted.

This forward assist is a great addition to my new build. It has a great design and look and it complements the Stike Industries handguard and port cover that I've already installed on my upper.I would recommend that you consider this and other Stike Industries part's for your build project.

Slim, light, lots of compliments from looks to purpose of use. I will be using it on more builds in the near future. Connor go wrong with Strike Industries products. Dry their dust cover and light weight pins as well. Can’t say anything. Bad, better products and way more cool factor for your custome builds.

Let’s me honest...the stock OEM forward assist works just fine, but it’s outdated looking. I originally ordered this item after putting together a stripped upper. After installing it (super easy), I decided to swap out a few others with the same one. It has aggressive texturing on the end, so you’ll slam your hand on it once and not do that again and slow down the next time. Overall, good update to my weapon and seems to be of good structural quality.

All in all it is a very good product. I mounted this forward assist in my M5 instead of an AR15. It took no more than 5 minutes from unpackaging to function testing. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the forward assist only has 3 prongs when 4 prongs would have given a feeling of better positive engagement with it. The 3 works but it feels like a bit off. Just my opinion.

I'm extremely happy with the quality and the price and would recommend there products 100% to anyone looking to upgrade there build. I also half to say that I love optics planet they have some of the best products and have always taken care of my needs as a customer. Thanks again Travis H.

Are you excited about the forward assist? No, it's a dull non issue...eh, it works. Why not fill that space with something better than black, even better than plain, flat, dark, earth? I added this to my new lightweight, upper build with FDE parts. It is the most stylish part on it but doesn't seem out of place. Actually, I wish the whole thing looked that way!
