Description Extended Information
Our 16 hour AR15/M16/M4/AR308 Armorer course provides Industry Standard 5 year Armorer's Certification.

Law Enforcement Agencies are deploying or are in the process of issuing carbine rifles to Patrol Officers, Supervisors, and Tactical Units. With that comes the need of having qualified Armorers or Range Masters to service and maintain these weapons on a regular basis. This course covers all M16/AR15/M4 & AR308 type 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 has 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.

Here is a brief overview of what is covered during this very busy hands on full 2-days of AR15/M16/M4/AR308 Armoring:

  • History of the Weapon
  • Cycles of Operation
  • Complete Disassembly / Assembly
  • Nomenclature & Components Identification
  • Inspections, Stress & Interval Issues, Parts Replacement Schedules
  • Accessories & Upgrades
  • Cleaning and Maintenance
  • Timing & Suppressor Issues
  • Barrel Replacement
  • Headspace, Firing Pin Protrusion & Gauging
  • Piston & Direct Gas Impingement Systems
  • Ballistic Issues
  • Trouble Shooting & Repair
  • AR308 Variants
  • Parts Interchangeability
  • Semi-Auto, Full-Auto, Burst Trigger Systems, & Conversions

    All tools, manuals, and anything else that is necessary is supplied. Students are required to bring their own weapon systems to get familiar with their own configuration and modifications, plus this allows the time for a good thorough cleaning and inspection, plus we can replace and repair any parts necessary. This is a very intensive course that we cover in 2-days, so be prepared to get a lot of hands on knowledge.

    The course starts at 8am and runs until 5pm with an hour for lunch.

    5 of 5 BEST CLASS IVE EVER TAKEN December 27, 2022
    Reviewer: Nathan R. from MEDINA, OH United States  
    I was an armorer for nearly 10 years in the Army, the M4/M16 platform I know like the back of my hand.  Going into this class I had the mentality that I was only taking it as a formality to be certified on the civilian side to maintain weapons for my police agency.  It was clear that within a few hours I was already learning things about the platform that I didn't already know.  Sully was a fantastic instructor.  Left the class excited about the platform.  I would take a course from Defensive Edge again and again.

    5 of 5 AR armorer course March 13, 2022
    Reviewer: Greg Bergdall from Enid, OK United States  
    I went to Sullys two day AR armorer course in Kansas and thought it was best class I have been to in a long time, long time being a 31 year LEO.  Sully shows you how to do it, has you do it several times, explains why you do it and then also shows animations on the gun and personal photos of what happens when it is done wrong.  He touches on all ways  people learn and makes certain you get it before he moves on.  I paid for this class out of pocket, while most everyone else was there because an agency sent them.  I live four and a half hours away drove there paid for motel, food and gas. To tell you if class is worth it, I am signing up for Sullys shotgun armorer course later in the year and do it all over!!
