Forward Controls Design EPC Ejection Port Cover - No Standoff Tabs
*Limit 2 Per Person*
Note: This Variant of EPC is designed specifically to work with the Sig MCX & BCM MK2 Receivers as they do not have standoff tabs. These can still be used on standard Milspec upper receivers however they will sit at a steeper angle than a traditional FCD EPC when open
Forward Controls had resisted making their version of an ejection port cover, mainly because they were preoccupied with other projects, but when they had a moment to list the things they wanted on an FCD version, it wasn't long before it became a project they 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.
Another feature is a shallow circular depression on the side of the EPC to provide texture tactile feedback to the user's finger when he's closing the EPC. A flat surface provides nothing to the user to differentiate one surface from another, it also provides no traction. A shallow circular depression on the left side of the EPC does both. We incorporate flat surfaces with care as they have their uses . In this case, EPC's exterior surface is treated as a control surface, where a flat surface rarely makes sense.
Construction and coating: billet, type III anodized.
Proudly designed and made in the USA.
Initial closing and opening of EPC may be stiff, this is normal, and will become easier with 2 or 3 closing/opening cycles.
