I checked; the M&P similar priced model also has no forward assist. My opinion is if you have a malfunction that requires the use of a forward assist, then the gun is broke and needs to be fixed. Unless you are going in the desert or being deployed, there really isn't a need for a dust cover. Just spend a couple of minutes shaking out the dirt when you are done playing for the day. I haven't had personal experience with the S&W line of AR's, but their pistols have never given me any problems, and they retain their value.
