Course Goal:

The program content focuses on the mechanical functioning, disassembly/reassembly, maintenance, troubleshooting, and field repair of different variants of the M16/M4/AR15 direct gas impingement platform.

This is a hands-on program that teaches and guides each participant through all armorer operations, step by step with the instructor. Active participation coupled with question and answer periods provide a supportive learning environment for maximum retention of the material.

The course is also well suited for the law enforcement armorers to design their agency’s own maintenance and inspection program.  A three (3) year certification is issued upon successful course completion.
