M16/AR15 Armorers Course

Greg "SULLY" Sullivan will be coming to the DFW area to teach this
course. You can view more about him and this course via his website:
THE DEFENSIVE EDGE

This course covers all M16/AR-15 weapons systems made by all manufacturers.

Armorers will be certified in the proper maintenance, care, and repair
of these weapons systems, including semi-auto and select-fire trigger
systems.

This program follows the Manufacturer's guidelines and is taught by
FBI and NRA Certified Instructors.

The Armorer Course covers:
History of the Weapon
Cycles of Function
General Disassembly / Assembly
Identification of Common Problems and Parts
Nomenclature
Identification of Group Components

Cost for the 2 day M16/AR-15 Armorer is $250. Click HERE to register
for this course. (You must register with SULLY via the registration
link provided.)

The course dates are FEBRUARY 25 & 26, 2006.

Class hours will be 0800 - 1700 (8am to 5pm) each day.

Please take care of all funds including deposits with Sully.

This should be a nice course and its not to far of a drive for two days either.

If you have any questions IM or email me. Myself and Arrowhead have been working on setting this up for some time.

Thanks
John

Made the link hot..

Yes I will be there this weekend, early Saturday.

I was going to try and get a table if one is available or go in with someone if they have one.

As it looks the tannerite is going so fast I may not need to get a table.

Let me know if you have any other questions about the armor course

Will this course be over the head of guys who shoot but don't do much work on their weapon?

IMHO I would think it would be right up their alley..

Go to the link at the start of the thread and you can read about it.

It seems that it would bring things that are in question to a clearer understanding.

Please feel free to contact with further questions.

Thanks

AR-15/M-16 Armoring Course

Feb 25-26, 2006 Dallas/Ft.Worth, TX

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 armoring course with our shooting course that was reviewed in SWAT Magazine September 2004 SWAT 2004 Article.
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.

Also make sure everyone signs up for the SWAT Magazine January 2006 Sweepstakes, as it is one beautiful SLR15 rifle that is being given away.

How big is a Full Class ? I'm ready to register - just concerned that if the class gets too it might lose some of its quality.

Hey Sully, what if anything do we need to bring with us tool or weapon wise?

I took the Glock Armorer Course years ago, and they provided weapons and the entire tool kit .

Thanks.

Wow so many replies...

I dont know any names up that way or major chains.

I do remember there are a few along 380 as you are heading west for BWT.

You would probably have to search after the class Saturday night, if not get there early Sat before class.

There are several along US 380, I dont have name and numbers but there are no events in the area so there should be some available rooms, most are west of the BackWoods traps.

IM me if you have any other questions.

See you there.

Days Inn, $57 for a room w/ King or 2 Dbls. Probably the least expensive. The rest probably rent by the hour... if that is what you are looking for...

See you there...

Excellent Class! Many Thanks to Sully and Paul.


Does anyone know what are the tools/drivers called that we used to drive the pins back in....the ones with the tiny tips... and drive them flush to the surface? They are not flat like the ones that drive them out. Where can I find them? What sizes do I need for the AR? We basically only used two sizes during the course..right? 1/16 and 5/32

Head spaces guages..was it Forester or Clymer?

Mil-Spec. Where is the best place to get mil spec parts? (Barrell Nut)

I wish I had spare springs and retainer pins like Sully. I've viewed some kits offered in Brownells but it seems to be too much.
I have a Brownell Catalog and found most of the tools suggested in class.
Sorry I didn't take notes.
I noticed someone in class was writing everything down...

I believe that the sizes were but ?I could be wrong:

1/16 flat punch
3/32 flat punch

3/32 roll pin punch
1/8 roll pin punch

I do recall that one punch was preferably 5/64 but I can't remember what it was for. Maybe the bolt catch release? If so, it also has to be long enough to reach.

Randall

Oh, yea... It was a killer class. Sully is a very good instructor and if this course is any indication of what his other courses are like, I'll definitely try and attend others when they're offered in the south.
