Just wondering how much value everyone places on having an ejection port cover and forward assist on their uppers?

I use Slick Sides.

People ask if the ejection port cover is needed and I respond that none of my bolt action rifles have them. It was designed to keep mud and sand out so if your crawling thru any of that with your rifle it may come in handy.

I do like the port cover but I don't value either on a hunting arm.

I absolutly will not own an AR without a forward assist or an ejection port cover. When I hunt I don't traverse ground with a round in the chamber. When I get to a spot I want to call or put on a stalk, I QUIETLY ride the bolt home, then tap the forward asist.

When slogg'n through the thick stuff, especially if its muddy and wet, I don't want crud getting into my rifle.

I do the same for when I get in my tree stand I ride the bolt and then seat into full battery with the forward assist. Its a lot quieter than slamming the bolt home you never know were those critters are.

I was raised hearing it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.  Therefore, both my rifles have them.
