    Not to mention that the fixturing would be a nightmare. Total time to rough out both lowers in op 1 is under 5 minutes. we could cut that time down but at the cost of dimensions and tooling suffering.

    I hope the brass deflector is solid and not screwed on the upper.

    The bolted on deflector on my MV is solid. There's nothing to worry about

    It will be retained by a screw, The deflector sits in a pocket that is milled into the upper. we have been employing this style for many years now and have thousands of rifles out in the world with these retained in this manner and have not experienced a single issue.

    To integrate the shell deflector into the upper requires large bar stock, which increases waste and price of the finished part.

    We may go with integrated shell deflectors in the upper that have forward assist, but we are still contemplating the forward assist feature as it is for the most part a useless feature. The deciding factor will be what guys want when we get around to starting on the uppers. Majority will dictate.

    I'm definitely hoping for a forward assist version, just looks a little off without one.

    I'm liking the idea of NOT having a forward assist, the Magpul MBUS offset that i have would be nice to push a little further forwards and not have the charging handle so cramped.

    Besides, the little cutout in the bolt group can be used as a forward assist if you need it, if slowly riding the charging handle home is your plan (makes sense in varmint hunting and not wanting to disturb things)
