1 Day Armorer`s Course - 1911 Pistol
This one-day course covers in detail all the information to keep your 1911 handgun in top-flight condition.

Cost: $500.00

Prerequisite Class(s): You will need your own weapon to work on. We do not rent weapons for the Armorer's courses. Additionally, you will need protective gear, and tools (see below).

ALL students must show photo ID at Sign-In, regardless of age!

At the conclusion of this course, you will be proficient at disassembly, reassembly, cleaning, lubrication, identification of worn or damaged parts, and parts replacement. You will be trained in diagnosing and fixing recurring malfunctions. After-market parts and modifications are discussed, with an emphasis on what products work and what products won`t. Additionally, you will know the best parts manufacturers to choose from and which ones to avoid. This course is a must if you want to glean the decades of experience Front Sight`s staff has in keeping your weapons running properly.

1911 ArmorerYou obviously need to bring a 1911! Feel free to bring working guns, non-working guns, problem guns, and any parts you would like to install. DO NOT bring parts that will require machining or major fitting to install.
