The LDFA-Ti has been available for some time now but its somewhat shiny, raw titanium finish is not for everyone. Forward Controls Design just introduced a new version, the LDFA-Ti-DLC, that will appeal those those who want the light weight of titanium but in a more subdued finish.
This new LDFA (Low Drag Forward Assist) is just like the previous titanium version. It has the same lip-less design that makes it work so well with ambidextrous charging handles and the same lighweight, billet titanium construction. It differs in that it has been DLC coated for a deep, black finish.
Check out the LDFA-Ti-DLC at Forward Controls Design.
Has anyone ever actually had to use his/her forward assist? The AR rifle originally did not have one and only after the Army insisted was it added to the AR.
