The product seems like good quality, but the ridges on the face of the tear drop are straight vertical instead of at an angle (aligned with the outside edge of the tear drop) like the originals. I looked at the picture before I ordered, but it was tough to be certain. Not a good reproduction if you’re fussy about accurate details for a retro build like I am.
Excellent Quality

I ordered this to replace the round assist on my M4. Not only is it priced great, but the quality is first class. My item arrived safely thanks to being well packed and protected. This was my first order from JSE and it was a great experience.
Tear drop forward assist

Just like my issued M16A1. Much more effective than the round FA. Great price, fast shipping, what else can you ask for? Along with the A1 stock, hand grip, three prong flash hider and triangle hand guards my new carbine is just what I want. Thanks JSE!
These Are The Best

Even in the military, I’ve never “needed” to use a forward assist but this is the style I was issued. We were taught to hit them with the palm of our hand, just below the thumb. Doing that with the new, smaller button style would likely hurt! In addition, if needed, one would likely be short on time and the “teardrop” style just makes sense. I purchased two to upgrade newer button style uppers. My personal opinion, they look better too.
I just prefer it for the cosmetics.
I prefer the tear drop forward assist over the round forward assist. It's a personal preference. To me it looks cleaner and fills in the area. It's more pleasing to the eye. I used the M16A1 in the Marines and it had a tear drop foward assist. When the new M16's came out with the round forward assist I didn't see any benefits. Maybe it was weight. I heard maybe it was because it could snag on brush. Really? I think it was changed for the sake of change. I just prefer it for the cosmetics. No better or worse.
