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.

Nichevo April 19, 2012 at 8:48 am

Winning this would be an awesome way to start my leave. Want.

marambula1 April 19, 2012 at 8:49 am

Just reread the article and my mouth is watering, a class with Larry Vickers would be amazing, and I hate to admit it but the AR would be my first, what a first it would be!!! Best of luck to everyone.

coastal_shredder April 19, 2012 at 8:51 am

Got this baby all sewed, but just in case, fingers crossed that the rifle is mine!

lsr1238 April 19, 2012 at 8:51 am

What an amazing giveaway. The rifle and the Larry Vickers class would be awesome on their own but both in the same giveaway…wow.

bikemancs April 19, 2012 at 8:53 am

Wow, this is an amazing give away. I ended up reading over this through BattleComp’s Facebook post. All I can say is whoever wins this is going to be Lucky as hell!

Good luck!

guns4good April 19, 2012 at 8:53 am

This looks like an AWESOME giveaway! I’m new here, but loving the site and crossing my fingers. :)

Best of luck to everyone in the contest!

DonovanM April 19, 2012 at 9:07 am

My DDM4 is getting a little lonely in my safe, and I could sure use some training… Please count me in, and thank you for the opportunity :)

bullnav April 19, 2012 at 9:07 am

This looks like an outstanding package. Rifle, mags, ammo, AND Larry Vickers. Definitely worth the cost of a plane ticket from Michigan to head to Vegas. I really appreciate the work that has gone into this AR. Not only the tune-up, but especially adding the compensator so as not to have to deal with SBR requirements (I need to refresh myself on this one; I think here in Michigan that it would count as a pistol under our laws…). Good luck to one and all!

tommy777 April 19, 2012 at 9:11 am

if i could win this it would be awesome! but to get a class taught by one of the greats is priceless! im a vet and i would have to admit i could use this class, tactics as well as the subject matter of grouping rounds and general over all use, i think everyone could learn something. and thanks 702 for all the hardwork youve done putting this giveaway together. hopefully i will see you at the range with larry!! and goodluck to everyone!!!

davesmystery April 19, 2012 at 9:11 am

Wow wow wow, I really hope I win this thing!!!!

shmitty80 April 19, 2012 at 9:12 am

Great giveaway here! I love our right to bear arms! Good luck everyone!!
(PS any reason why the give away is a month before November? ;)

mooses April 19, 2012 at 9:12 am

thanks for the chance, good luck everyone

zsavage81 April 19, 2012 at 9:15 am

Out of all the free give away’s I’ve seen lately, this one absolutely takes the cake! This would be SICK to win! Hope y’all pick me, I’ll put that sucker to good use and the class is just gravy on top!

Triage April 19, 2012 at 9:17 am

Nice AR. I have a Battle Comp on my M14. This would make a great addition to my gun safe.
I’ll take it!

chezmosteel April 19, 2012 at 9:21 am

I have been wanting a nice rifle for some time. As a student, I don’t have money for one right now. This would be an excellent start to a collection!!

65StangBoy April 19, 2012 at 9:22 am

Wow, this is an extremely generous giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

sethbowman April 19, 2012 at 9:23 am

I really appreciate the chance at receiving a rifle like this, but would further appreciate the possibility of training with someone of that gun world stature before I deploy again with the ARMY in the spring of 2013. Hope my luck changes and this works out! -SGT Bowman

ccruise03049 April 19, 2012 at 9:26 am

Here we go!!! Looking forward to the chance to win this great promotion/giveaway/training!

etrubilla April 19, 2012 at 9:31 am

Great listing, now to wait most of the year to find out who the lucky dog is who gets it!

zsavage81 April 19, 2012 at 9:32 am

What does the 3 day class consist of? Is it Vickers Carbine I, II, and III? I’d be as jacked about the learning that would take place at the course as I would be about the boomstick, and I’d be pretty damn jacked about the boomstick. This would also be as good of an excuse as I’m ever going to get to tell HH6 that I/we are going to Vegas and I need some new plates for the old mayflower (cuz as Pat Rogers says “PC’s without plates is peter puffin…..ok ok, we all know what he says about it). I guess I’d also have to play the card that I’d need to pick up a new T1 to slap on her for the course. This Give away has TONS of win!

Kaptainkoolz April 19, 2012 at 9:37 am

id be stoked just for the larry vickers class, the AR and ammo is just icing on the cake…

Very cool opportunity!

lanix April 19, 2012 at 11:08 am

I build AR15 rifles, and am currently designing one like this that would have an integraded supressor, but still building up the funds. However, I have never had a proper training class, this would be amazing.

flipfellah April 19, 2012 at 11:13 am

thanks for the giveaways. love the site btw. very informative specially for the vegas area. ill be visiting the gun stores when i go back to vegas.

ithaca37s April 19, 2012 at 11:16 am

Count me in!

Sblank April 19, 2012 at 11:32 am

Very nice looking weapon. I have shot many but this one would be my first personally owned. I just hope I will not be in a training course in late October. Thank you.

shooterdude April 19, 2012 at 11:36 am

Man, that’s a lot of gear! And happens to be exactly how I for see my AR build looking like. This would be an incredible package to win! And the training class would be something anyone at any skill level could greatly benefit from!

Seamus23 April 19, 2012 at 11:40 am

This is an amazing prize package! I don’t know if I’m more excited about the rifle or taking a class with larry vickers! Good luck everyone and thanks…..and all the other sponsors for such a great opportunity.

neilk April 19, 2012 at 11:42 am

Great looking package! Does anyone happen to know the unloaded weight of the carbine?

The nickel boron coating should be standard for any direct impingement system! After getting my first BCG with the coating (sadly not from WMD Guns), I quickly upgraded my other AR. While I haven’t tried running it dry, it is noticeably smoother and stays that way after several hundred rounds. Cleaning is also a breeze. Good choice including it with the package!

madmax-Smith1342 April 19, 2012 at 11:53 am

Wow a class and an Awsome Rifle too! What a country! I’m from the cornbelt but love the southwest. Three days of shooting and learning and all the other goodies!! I resisted getting an AR type rifle for years my use of one in the Army (86-90) had convinced me that my DAD was right about them (He did 2 tours in nam) mattel POS. New developments in the AR platform have recently got me wanting one and this package with the training would be a great way to start off!! I’ve worked the last eight years as a Security Officer for a couple of companys the last a multinational that bought out Pinkerton here in the states. I recently got laid off due to loss of a major contract and this would just make my year! So please consider my entry. hope to hear from you! Keep your powder dry!

bobthebrewer April 19, 2012 at 11:54 am

fingers crossed!

wave April 19, 2012 at 11:57 am

It would be incredible to win being behind enemy lines in the Peoples Republik of New Yorkistan.

Valiant432 out…

mahoney1988 April 19, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Is there anything you didn’t think to add while making this killer giveaway? With this rifle being brand new and unfired to let the winner unleash havoc on some targets is awesome. The 14.5″ chrome lined barrel with BattleComp welded on was a great start. Welded on making it where I wouldn’t have to register it as a short barrel rifle is much appreciated. The 11″ Troy Industries TRX BattleRail would be cool to have and try. I would usually never go for a rail like this, but the pictures of this are making me want one! Also the 3 PMAGs with Ranger Plates put the topping on the cake for this rifle. Also not stopping there you even put KNS Non-Rotating hammer and trigger pins on this rifle. This would be a dream rifle for anyone to win and no offense but I hope I win this rifle! Good luck everyone and also thanks for the opportunity 702 shooter ! I’ll be checking my email a lot for this !

apenandasword April 19, 2012 at 3:40 pm

My unit didn’t get M4s till after I ets-ed. I’ve had my eye on getting an AR for a long time, though it hard to justify to the wife with a baby on the way. She would however be okay entertaining herself in Vegas for a couple days during the class
