It is absolutely necessary because the gun has no way to apply forward pressure to the BCG. Without being closed, the gun is somewhere between difficult and impossible to breakdown..

That said, I have never used it for that, but I would. I have used to silently load. I would guess soldiers might use it for bolt closed confirmation after a quiet chamber check...
