FREE AR-15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers Class

AR15Package FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers ClassI know many of you may find this difficult to believe but apparently people like free stuff.  Who knew right?  Anyway, in order to please the masses and offer something back to the community, Ben Bunker from , in participation with GlockVector Industries, has booked Larry Vickers for a 3 day carbine training course October 19-21, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV.  There are 15 spots in the class and Ben is giving them all awayEDIT:  I’ve had way too many people ask me how much the class spots are selling for.  YOU CAN NOT BUY INTO THIS CLASS!
VickersTactical FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers ClassLocals may enter the drawing for the free class by stopping by any of the following gun stores:

Each store will be giving away at least one slot in the class and you may enter as many times as you like, although you can only win once.

So what’s better than a free 3 day carbine class with Larry Vickers?  Well, how about a free BCM AR-15 lightweight carbine?  Yep, you read that right.  Thanks to Mr. Bunker, is also giving away a slot in the class and we have a rifle to go along with it!

Of course, a rifle and training are useless without ammo so how about 1000 rounds of PMC 223A as well?  I know, all this free stuff can make for quite the burden so I’m sure we won’t get very many people entering this drawing. icon sad FREE AR 15, FREE Ammo, & FREE Larry Vickers Class

This unfired Bravo Company AR has been upgraded a bit too.  For starters, the 14.5″ chrome lined barrel now has a BattleComp compensator welded on so the winner does not need to worry about registering it as an SBR.  The front sight post has been cut down to make way for the new 11″ Troy Industries TRX BattleRail.  Magpul’s MBUIS were added along with a new MOE Stock and MOE+ grip.  3 PMAGs with Ranger Plates will also go with the package.  The trigger pin was loose so some KNS Non-Rotating hammer and trigger pins were added to the mix.  The bolt, carrier, and hammer have all been Nickle Boron coated by WMD Guns.

As I was checking it out, I noticed that the trigger was the weak link in the rifle .  It had a lot of creep and was not all that smooth. Lucky for you guys, Jim West of Wild West Guns noticed this too and offered to rework the trigger to make it more respectable.  Jim also offered to do some work on the barrel which consists of cleaning up the weld and re-parkerizing the entire barrel and compensator.

Here’s a breakdown of  the prize package including all rifle upgrades:

Bravo Company Mfg. Light Upper, Complete Lower, and Gunfighter Charging Handle
Battle Comp Enterprises Welded Compensator
Troy Industries 11″ TRX BattleRail
Magpul Pmags, Ranger Plates, MBUIS, MOE Stock, & MOE+ Grip
KNS Precision Non-Rotating Hammer & Trigger Pins
PMC 1000 Rounds of 223A 55gr Ammo
Wild West Guns Trigger Job & Barrel Work
Larry Vickers 3 Day Carbine Training Class
WMD Guns Nickel Boron Coated Bolt, Carrier, & Hammer
TangoDown Stubby Vertical Grip
Total MSRP Prize Package Value: $3,363.00

So what’s the catch?  Well, there are a couple of them.  First off, obviously you need to be at least 18 years old and able to legally purchase a firearm in the United States.  The package will be given away at the training class and you must be present at the class to claim the rifle and ammo.  If you are entering this drawing and live out of state, after the class, the rifle will be transferred to your local FFL where you will be responsible for any transfer and background check fees.  See below for special exceptions that are necessary for CA, MA, NY, & CT.  Once again, this class is October 19-21, 2012.  We will be selecting the winner about 3 weeks before the class in order to allow transportation arrangements to be made by the winner, in case they live out of state.  If you are the winner and you are not able to make it to the class, you will forfeit all prizes and a new winner will be selected.


UPDATE: 9-25-2012

Refer a friend and you may way a spot in the class too!

CALIFORNIA:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for installing a bullet button and any other modifications which may be required under CA law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for CA winners.

NEW YORK:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under NY law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for NY winners.

MASSACHUSETTS:  We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under MA law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.  No magazines are included in the package for MA winners.

CONNECTICUT: We will ship the rifle to the FFL of your choosing.  That FFL will be responsible for pinning the stock and any other modifications which may be required under CT law.  The winner will be responsible for any fees incurred by their FFL.

Additional information and rules may be found here.

To enter, just post a comment here and PAY ATTENTION to our standard giveaway rules.  As usual, it is absolutely FREE to enter!

UPDATE: 4-13-12

If the winner is unable to attend the class due to active Military deployment, we will allow you to send another person in your place to participate in the class and collect the prizes.  After that, it’s between you and your representative to properly handle the firearm transfer.


The grand prize winner is Codie.

The additional class spot winner is ewilmore88.

Both winners have claimed their prizes.  Congratulations guys!  We will see you both October 19-21st, 2012.

BostonBullit April 16, 2012 at 6:21 am

Looks like an excellent giveaway, just want to say thanks for including those of us stuck behind the lines in Mass…a lot of people in the industry find it easier to simply abandon us.

kengel2 April 16, 2012 at 7:01 am

Found this via nolatac, great giveaway and thanks for doing this.

Teutonic April 16, 2012 at 7:01 am

Great offer and opportunity to train with LAV!

Nice to see a company putting forward a completely donated class…along with a completely donated kit to have some lucky winner ready to go…just show up with a good attitude!

If your shops were local I would definitely stop by…but here’s a registration for the opportunity to win from afar!

I have never really won anything, and never wanted to win something SO BAD!!! :) good luck to all, but I want this…

doose April 16, 2012 at 7:28 am

Codie April 16, 2012 at 7:47 am

Did I mention I will do just about anything legal to win this!!! Maybe a 702shooter and or BCM tattoo? LOL ;)

By the way, thanks for putting in the effort to include training along with a quality rifle. I’ve never had any formal carbine training outside of local LEO stuff, and would love to bring this back to some folks arounde here. Definitley a sweet package!

Ironman8 April 16, 2012 at 10:27 am

Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest!

For those who’ve never trained with LAV, he really is one of the premier trainers out there. He will demand alot from you, but will teach you how to get to where he has set the bar in a very logical manner through drills and standards. This would be about the best that you could do for a first time class.

Thanks again!

Thank you Ben Bunker and 702shooter for this outstanding promotion. So far I’ve also entered for the class at 2 of the 4 gun shops. this is SERIOUSLY AWESOME!

ladodgerdog April 16, 2012 at 1:18 pm

I have just reread the giveaway and the prizes a little bit slower, they are even better the second reading. wow, what a great giveaway, plus a big and well deserved thank you to the sponsors, for without them there would be no prizes, also thanks for putting this great package together, my only concern would be if I won, how I would get another gun in the house and I haven’t worked out the trip yet, maybe I can talk her into coming along it may cost me range time, but what are the better halfs for anyway. good luck to all who enter

pmartin351 April 18, 2012 at 4:36 am
