The Northtech Defense DLC coated black Titanium Foward Assist Next Generation is a precision CNC machined part to fit all Mil-spec upper receivers, both forged and billet. Manufactured from high strength grade titanium that reduces the weight by 40% over standard steel Mil-spec forward assists. The button, shell and shaft are made of Titanium. The bolt pusher is CNC precision machined from 316 stainless steel. This is a must have piece that not only makes the Northtech Defense billet upper standout but other uppers as well. A serious upgrade for the AR15/AR10 platform due to it’s construction, materials and stylized design throughout.
