Forward Controls Design – 4th of July Newsletter – Worth a Read

The Forward Controls Design Newsletter is usually just a few sentences about what is happening at FCD. This month is a bit different and its worth a read… and not just for the details about the discount. Any time a new citizen is minted, it’s a very cool thing.

Effective July 1st to July 4th, 15% off site wide, no items excluded, no code is required.


We’re usually quite succinct in our newsletters, this is a rare occasion when we’re a bit long winded.

This July, one of us at FCD will become a newly minted United States citizen. An immigrant’s perspective of the freedom we take for granted can be quite different and sobering, I believe one needs to not only travel abroad, but also live in a foreign land for a few years to truly appreciate the unique rights and freedoms the Constitution grants and guarantees all Americans.

We’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the men and women that have fought to keep this nation free. It is solely because of them that we’ve been able to enjoy our safety and liberty, and all the opportunities America affords us. We do not take our freedom for granted, we do not take our men and women in uniform for granted, they are the heroes of the nation to whom we owe an immense debt I don’t think can be fully repaid.

If you’re still reading this, thank you, and have a safe Independence Day.

Forward Control Designs ABC/R-F

The Forward Control Designs ABC/R-F (Augmented Bolt Catch/Release, Forged) is now shipping to dealers. This bolt catch/release is full of subtle design cues and angles that help the user use the release effectively. Not only are the upper and lower surfaces slightly enlarged over a standard catch, but they are angled slightly to provide better purchase and leverage. The visual differences are subtle but they can easily be felt.

The ABC/R-F is machined from a 17-7 stainless forging. It is available in a bare steel finish or black Melonite processed.
