Class/training to build an AR-15

Sorry…I should remember this by now but…

What is the best way to learn to build an AR-15?

I know there are some classes or people willing to take on an apprentice…

Start by watching these videos. It is a really good tutorial on the process without any BS.

It is a great place to start

Clandestine’s School of the American Rifle is the most technical of such classes I am aware of...

There are quite a few people here who have taken many AR classes in the past. We would be glad to answer any questions you have along the way if you get hung up on anything.

This. Very worthwhile.

Definitely SOTAR. You learn a ton and assemble a rifle over a weekend.

Basic knowledge on building an AR can be developed just from watching YouTube videos. Lots of good ones out there. Honestly it is very easy to build an AR from just parts.

To really understood the whats and whys and tune one, then probably SOTAR.
