Decided to go ahead and order online from NW Armory. Will be heading up soon to get in line, lol.
This pretty much sums up my feelings on forward assistForward assist has an important function, you use it to jam a miss-fed round into the bottom lip of the feed ramp and mangle it beyond use. It's also used to help cure that silly concept of saving weight on a rifle. Unless you're a tier one operator, operating operationally in an operational environment, it's completely unnecessary.
Because I'm terribly impatient and don't like to wait for shiny new toys.Why wouldn't you order one and have it sent to an FFL in Salem?
You did good.
Sell those two boxes of ammo and it will pay for the rifle and magazines or a quality optic.
