AR-15/M-16 Armoring Course

January 21-22, 2006 Plymouth Minnesota

Cost $250 (Online Registration Available)

THIS COURSE IS OPEN TO ALL WHO WISH TO ATTEND

This is the same course that we have taught for a decade all over the country. The same course that was reviewed in SWAT Magazine September 2004. A few reviews can be found here: Lebanon IN 2005
Plymouth MN 2005
Another Review

Here is a brief overview of what is covered and I can tell you it is a very busy hands on full 2-days:

History of the Weapon
Cycles of Function
General Disassembly & Assembly
Identification of Common Problems and Parts
Nomenclature
Identification of Group Components
Semi, Burst, and Full Auto Parts and Conversions
Complete Armoring Disassembly / Assembly
Barrel Replacement
Cleaning and Maintenance
Sight and Distance Considerations
Ballistic Issues
Barrel Twist, Length, and Choices
Gas System
Parts Interchangability, including Brands
Headspace
Firing Pin Protrusion
Trigger Jobs
Chamber Inspection and Polishing
Accessories and Customizing
Tool Options and Selection
Iron Sights (A1/A2/A3) Disassembly/Reassembly
Optics
Etc

We supply all the basic tools, manuals, and anything else that is necessary. We will also provide lots of nice to have gunsmith tools that make life easier. We will provide rifles with prior arrangements, basically so we know how many to bring. We prefer that students bring their own rifles so they get fimilar 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.

All that successfully complete this 2-day course will receive Manufacturer's Certification, and will also have an opportunity to purchase a rifle at a special Armorer's rate.

You get a nice 3 ring binder, with a lot places to take notes! You get gun cleaning mat to work on your guns! And, you get some good fellowship! Just hope that Death shows up to show what 50Kof Wolf 223 does to a gun! Just Kidding Paul! There is nothing that can not be cured by some heat and elbow grease!

Missed this one last year because of work. Hopefully I can get off for this one. This will probably pay for itself in the long run.

I took this class last year, It was an excellent class to attend. You'll tear down your rifle to every last little part and put it all back together again.

Unfortunately this is on the same weekend as my grandmothers birthday. I'll have to wait for the next one.

Hours are 8:00am until 5:00pm each day or until we are finished. This course will cover the left side ejection port models for those that have them and wish to work on them. We are just about full for registrations, so with only a few spots left I highly suggest that if you want to attend then get registered.

Just signed up for cold weather carbine to dirty up my AR and the armorers class to learn how to properly strip it and rebuild it. Woot!
