We had resisted making a Forward Controls version of ejection port cover, mainly because we were preoccupied with other projects, but when we had a moment to list the things we wanted on an FCD version, it wasn’t long before it became a project we became excited about.
EPC (Ejection Port Cover) is based on TDP dimensions, with thoughtful Forward Control touches. Billet machined from 7075 aluminum, and hard coat Type III anodized, it incorporates features we think many will find useful.
EPC has two “tabs” flanking the cutout for the port cover spring. These tabs allow the EPC to rest on the upper at a greater angle when it’s in the down/open position, which provides more space between the port cover and lower receiver. Their job is to better allow the user’s finger to get underneath the port cover when he wishes to swing it up/close.
Left: TDP ejection port cover. Right: EPC. Both in the down/open position. Please note that depending on the upper receiver, the area below the ejection port cover will vary in thickness, which affects the angle of the EPC when the port cover is open/down.
