[Samba] force user and read only

I need a share with read-only access for some developers (to read
logfiles). the logfiles are owned by the application user and group
and have 700 permissions. I have set up the share like this:

        path = /applicationx/logs
        read only = Yes
        valid users =  "MYDOMAIN+DEVELOPER1"
        force user = applicationx

It does work very well, but somehow it does not look nice to me... Is
there a way to do it without the force user option and keeping the 700
