Register for this course at

This one-day course covers in detail all the information to keep your AR-15 rifle, in top-flight condition.

Cost: $500/day introductory price

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.

AR15 ArmorerYou obviously need to bring an AR-15. 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.
