Forward Controls Design's mission is simple: create user-centric, form fitting and logical suite of purpose driven AR and soon, Glock components with ergonomics as one of the top design goals. A simple change in location, shape, or direction of serrations can make a great deal of difference to the way a user interacts with his firearm. Skills can't be bought, we endeavor to help trained and skilled users more efficient at their craft.
Co-inventor of the now famous BAD-ASS and
BAD-CASS (US patent US 8,806,790 B1) family of AR and M16 safety selectors, and
the AR/M16 Enhanced Pins Set (US 9,400,006B1, US D757,877S), Forward Controls Design is an extension of my core beliefs. We don't do fashion, nor do we follow fads. The company exists to make a difference to end users. We are pro-customer, pro-law enforcement, pro-military, and pro-conservative values.
The site's layout is very much in keeping with our design philosophy, understated, elegant, and functions driven, sans varnish and drama. The Latin phrase "simplex sigillum veri" (simplicity is the sign of truth) resonates with us in profound ways, for we've found it consistently true and unyielding. We've given our design language a name: Elegant Simplicity. It governs not only understated aesthetics, but also dictates form follows function, and prioritizes function over form. Elegant Simplicity can be found on every product we have designed and produced.
Much to our amusement, we've observed when a design's shape is wholly dictated by function, it almost always results in rather beautiful creations. It's a happy coincidence.
Forward Controls Design is a fairly new company started in the fall of 2014, I trust most
will find the way I run it familiar. Eschewing conventional
wisdom, finding ways to improve something that most deem unimprovable, superb
design and execution, exceptional customer service and support, these are among
the easily recognizable characteristics with which folks can identify from my
days past. It's a different kind of company, we may be in the R&D and hardware business, our friends, customers and dealers always come first, and are the most important things to us. Forward Controls and our products are loyal to our friends and customers are they are to us.
you all for your support.
