I will be picking up my new S&W ar-15 sport soon! This will be my first ar, any suggestions or things to be aware of?
The forward assist always made me scratch my head a little. I know that if a round has difficulty chambering that is a life or death situation when being shot at. However, if some foreign object has made its way into the firing chamber, forcing the round forward could have serious consequences. You might get one bang but not another, or even worse, get a KABOOM you never intended. Dust cover I understand though.In my forty years of carrying and using an AR, I have never needed a forward assist either.
