Introductory Level - 2 Days

Our 16 hour AR15/M16 Armorer course provides Industry Standard 5 year Armorer's Certification. Students will also have an opportunity to purchase a SLR15 rifle at a special Armorer's rate.
Here is a brief overview of what is covered during this very busy hands on full 2-days of AR15/M16 Armoring:
History of the Weapon

Parts Interchangeability, including Brands
Firing Pin Protrusion
Chamber Inspection and Polishing
Accessories and Customizing
Tool Options and Selection
Iron Sights (A1/A2/A3)
Accessories and Additions
All tools, manuals, and anything else that is necessary is supplied. We will provide rifles with prior arrangements so we know how many to bring. We prefer that students bring their own weapon systems to get familiar with their own configuration and modifications, plus this allows the time for a good thorough cleaning and inspection, plus we can replace and repair any parts necessary. This is a very intensive course that we cover in 2-days, so be prepared to get a lot of hands on knowledge.
Student Materials (Minimum Suggestion): Unloaded AR15/M16 Rifle (9mm / 5.56mm / .223cal) Provided with Prearrangement's.
Cost: Tuition is $350.00, (No Club Discounts) and must be paid in full at the time of enrollment. Tuition becomes non-refundable 30 days prior to the first day of the course, with two exceptions. As noted above, if the course itself is canceled all tuition is refunded, and if a student violates range safety rules and is asked to leave the course and his or her tuition will be refunded.
Class size: Enrollment will be not less than 10 no more than 20 students. Last day to enroll is September 28th.
In the event a course is canceled, any tuition paid by any student will be promptly refunded.
