Become familiar with the most popular firearms format in the United States, the AR-15 and AR-10. Here is an opportunity to build and customize a rifle. Instruction will include functioning, disassembly of main and subgroups and reassembly, head spacing, troubleshooting and function testing tips, and various cartridges offerings in the AR format. The AR-10 rifles will be covered and the compatibility between the different manufacturers will be discussed.
Students are requested to bring all the parts for a complete build or in various states of assembly for completion during the class, or their own firearms as a whole rifle and bring any parts they may wish to customize. The build and customization of the course will be dependent on what the student brings to class. Students will have the opportunity to use many of the instructor’s tools. Students must be 18 years of age. All State, Federal and local laws apply.
Bring safety glasses and your own tools; the instructor will have tools for students to use such as punches, armorer wrenches, vise blocks, disassembly/reassembly tools, and torque wrenches. This enables the student to try the various tools and then they can decide what tools will work best for them before purchasing. Tools will not be for sale at the class.
If you have purchased a handguard to install on your MSR, please bring the proprietary barrel nut wrench to match.
Class Dates: October 28 – November 1, 2019, time: 12:30 – 8:45pm This is a five day class. Cost $250
