Course detail: AR15 / M4 / M16 Rifle Armorer Course

Law Enforcement Agencies are deploying or are in the process of issuing carbine rifles to Field Supervisors, Field Officers, and Tactical Units. With that comes the need of having qualified Armorers or Rangemasters to service and maintain these weapons on a regular basis. This course covers all M16/AR15 type carbine weapons systems made and their variants. 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. SWAT Magazine recently featured SLR15 Rifles and Greg Sullivan "Sully" (the primary instructor for this course) as a cover story. Sully has also had numerous write ups in Guns & Ammo Magazine, SWAT Magazine, Gun & Weapons for Law Enforcement Magazine, Shooting Times Magazine, Precision Rifle Magazine, and several other publications. -The Armoring Course covers:
  • History of the Weapon
