America’s love affair with the AR isn’t ending anytime soon. American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI), the foremost authority on instructional video gunsmithing courses has developed courses specifically for the AR platform. The classic Eugene Stoner masterpiece is relived in all its glory by Master Gunsmith Robert “Bob” Dunlap, AGI’s Senior Instructor. In the AR-15 Rifles DVD (Product ID#103DVD for $39.95), Bob explains this successful design from its beginning over 40 years ago to today’s many variations. Bob uses a cutaway rifle to guide the viewer through the design and function of the rifle and includes many demonstrations to giving viewers a thorough understanding of gas systems, buffer assemblies, auto-fire and semi-auto modes and the forward assist. From disassembly and cleaning and lubrication to reassembly, Bob provides viewers with an excellent familiarization course on your AR rifle. Besides the basics, Bob will advise on accessories, tuning tips and troubleshooting. This course shows viewers how to convert a rifle to a M-4 Carbine configuration.

If building an AR system is the goal, the AGI course Building the AR from a Kit (Product ID#323DVD for $39.95) is the definitive course for the AR student with step-by-step instructions using parts from the top AR-15 manufacturers. Again, Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap, will walk students through the entire process from building a lower receiver from scratch to installation and fitting of parts, head spacing the barrel and final assembly and tuning. The AGI Building the AR from a Kit course will help students build their AR while avoiding the common and costly mistakes.

More and more shooters are using their AR for competitive shooting and varmint hunting. The AR-15 Trigger Job (Product ID#335DVD for $39.95) is the course for shooters looking to hone their trigger pull for increased accuracy. The AGI AR-15 Trigger Job course is a great instructional video for AR owners with a good knowledge base of the AR platform that are looking to enhance the rifle’s performance.
