Want to put an engraved ejection port cover on but don't know how. The vltor upper is very different from mil spec style. I have contacted vltor about this and they could not tell me because it would void my worenty they would charge we $20 plus parts and shipping to do it with out voiding it. But that is like 3x the price of doing it my self. So if anyone knows how please help.

Can you post a pic? Easier for the rest of us to figure if we can see it.

It looks like to you need to remove the barrel and slide the ejection port rod out.

I actually just did this on my vltor upper. hammer in the pin that's just above and to the right of the vltor logo. then slide the entire forward assist piece downwards. that way you can access the pin that holds in the rod. easy as pie.

This is the correct answer.
(But I thought I remember it coming off upwards - it's been months since I took mine off.)

The port door rod doesn't come out from the barrel side, so removing the barrel won't do anything.
The forward assist module is dovetailed into the upper receiver, it may require a few light taps with a plastic mallet or block of wood to get it off.

Nice design!

Looks like I need to get one.

I actually did mine two days ago. It slides downwards. It can't go upwards as it would hit the rail.

And OP, to be more specific, you'll need to hammer in the pin that's on the right.

I stand corrected.
