Specifically designed and purpose built for AR15s and M16s with ambidextrous charging handles, the LDFA is a snag-free, rimless forward assist with a small footprint.

Both the LDFA and ABC/R designs are partially based on natural selection and mutation. As the AR and its manual of arms evolve, so should its controls. The oft-neglected FA evolved into the LDFA by becoming smaller, and rimless to accommodate ambi charging handles. The ABC/R went the other direction, with its larger, angled and easier to access paddles to accommodate ambi mag catches.

There has been ongoing discussions regarding the relevance of the forward assist. Like it and use it, or not, it is found on standard AR upper receivers. We don't want the forward assist to go away, we'd rather have it and not need it, than the other way around. LDFA does not have a rim on the plunger and is smaller than a standard forward assist. More importantly, on an AR15 or M16 equipped with an ambidextrous charging handle, when the user pulls on the right latch to load or reload the weapon, the rimless design allows for fluid rearward movement of his hand and charging handle, without snagging on his fingernail or knuckle.

The smaller footprint of the plunger face does not impact its usability.

CNC Billet construction,  LDFA is machined from 4130 steel bar stock, heat treated with black nitride finish.

Proudly designed and made in the USA.

All 2021 and new LDFAs have a flat on the outward facing radius, this is a design feature.

I don't use forward assists on most of my rifles anymore but if I do I install one of these. The LDFA helps utilize the radian or geissele charging handles I use on my rifles. It also helps in vehicles or in confined spaces where its one less ragged edge to catch on something.

Great Product
Put one on a sbr with a raptor charging handle, and can now use the non dominant side of the charging handle (gloves dont snag either) without losing knuckle skin. Well done FCD

When my friends see it, they want one. I have them on 6 of my builds now and plan on replacing all of my FAs with these. Aesthetically pleasing, lighter weight, and no snag! I'm surprised that I don't see more custom builders using these. A great piece of kit from a great company.
