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.

“Winners are on their own for travel arrangements.” Thanks for that verification. Now, if you have any suggestions or contacts with travel people, that might be a good thing to share with us outsiders. Also, are one’s chances of winning increased by the number of posts here? I see a few that seem to be finding multiple reasons to comment. Just curious……..

Casull May 19, 2012 at 2:38 am

This is how rifles ought to be given away. Ammo, a good setup, and most importantly the training with a reputable instructor. This contest motivated me to enter right away because it sets an ideal that no one else has set and I understand that is thanks to the help of a few wonderful folks. 702 shows people that training is just as important as the rifle itself. Count me in for sure. It certainly will not hurt too much to be crossing my fingers. This is a very exciting giveaway. Thank you 702, and thanks to those who made this contest possible. Cheers!!

ewilmore88 May 19, 2012 at 11:12 am

This the absolute complete package when it comes to ARs. Sweet BCM. Training from LAV. And ammo and sling and other goodies. This thing is freaking awesome! Can’t wait til the winner is drawn and I’m really hoping its me!

Codie May 19, 2012 at 11:33 am

This is the ideal website for firearms enthusiast. Mr. Bunker, 702shooter, all of the sponsors, and everybody else has done an unbelievable job putting this giveaway and website together. This site is remarkable for firearms admirers of every type from the everyday target shooter to the trained expert. I’m glad to have come across it and not just for the awesome giveaways (an added bonus though), it‘s cool to find a website that is local and supports the responsible ownership of firearms. I have always wanted another great American made rifle, maybe this will be my chance. My other U.S made rifle is an old Ruger 10/22 I’ve had ever since I was 13, its one great little dependable rifle.

Beretta96 May 19, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Awesome package. I’d love to win. Thanks for all you do with your videos and reviews.

Janet May 19, 2012 at 1:13 pm

This is a sweet deal. I’m in! : )

Mikel May 19, 2012 at 2:55 pm

can’t win if you dont enter, so heres my entry. If I win awesome, if not thanks for putting this contest on.

Bajabuzz May 19, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I’m a firearms instruct for my unit based here in Vegas. This class would be incredibly useful! I’m looking forward to the potential to learn from such a well known and respected instructor! And yes, the weapon is sweet! Looks like it would run like a dream!

Casull May 19, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Mr. Bunker’s contribution has turned this already awesome package into something entirely different. 702shooter, your thoughtful build sets an example to onlookers and hopefuls such as myself. Light weight, BCM, and ready to rock. Count me in! I’m so pumped to be in this drawing. The package places an importance on training which is for sure as important as the firearm itself. This is a win for sure. The example it sets is beyond all the other prize drawings out there. Thanks, 702!!

Dead3nd May 19, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I spoke with one of the 702 representatives today at NFA, thinking the raffle was done at the shop. He was very nice, gave me his card and directed me here! This is an excellent feeling rifle, and straight from NFA is quite cheap but with all the nice upgrades it turns it into rifle only many of us dream to own!

702 May 19, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Just for clarification, the lower receiver and rifle builds you are referring to from NFA have nothing to do with this giveaway. Not the same products and nowhere near the same price point. We will be giving away 4 LW15 lower receivers over the next 4 months. You will enter that giveaway separately once I post the review here on 702shooter.

Thanks for stopping by NFA today and talking with me and welcome to the site. :)

Codie May 20, 2012 at 7:29 am

I tried to get to NFA yesterday to show my support but, I just could not get over to that side of the city. I hope there will be another event here in town soon, see you next time…

HDFLHT2000 May 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

This would be a great gift for my wife. She has never been in the military but has worked with a major defense contractor UAV aircraft and has completed 2 tours in Iraq and 3 tours in Afghanistan. Winning this would be a great accomplishment for all she has done supporting our troops.

evil_ss May 19, 2012 at 8:15 pm

This would be a sweet way to break in to the AR shooting world. I am in the Air Force and have done 1 tour in Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan as well as one in Kuwait. I would greatly appreciate an AR of this caliber to have for myself.

estebean86 May 19, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Nice ar 15 I wold love to own it, so it can go next to my ar 10 308..

kingofspain357 May 19, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Well, since i’m working at G&A Garage, I can’t enter there, so here I am! Commented!

kingofspain357 May 19, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Oh, ans I saw the AR at our open house. It’s bad ass!

Codie May 19, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Oh! Yes it is!!!

Codie May 19, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Participating in a course with a veteran like Mr. Larry Vickers is going to be excellent, throw in an unfired BCM AR-15 with all the trimmings, now that is one outstanding combination!!! I’m so grateful for the chance to partake in this mind-boggling giveaway, thank you for making this possible. That AR15 is one stunning rifle!!!

Quadjbajabug May 19, 2012 at 11:21 pm

I’m deaf and having training with Larry Vickers is awesome. He does the show and tell. When I saw the rifle at New Frontier Armory on May 19 where they have huge truck of Smith and Wesson and the business card saying a chance to win this package, I was shocked and love to try to win. I think this package is great because what’s winning a class without a rifle!

Wish as all Luck for a chance to win this Great Package Deal!

Codie May 19, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Thank you, Mr. Ben Bunker, all the outstanding sponsors, and everybody else that is involved with this fantastic giveaway and website, your dedication is appreciated immensely, keep up the great work. Good luck to all of the other participants.

LVMikee May 20, 2012 at 1:17 am

Can’t think of a better way to break in a new carbine, than trainin’ 3 days with “The Larry”. Thanks Mr. Bunker for the opportunity. Good Luck to All.

Codie May 20, 2012 at 8:07 am

I find this giveaway irresistible; I can’t stop thinking about this contest; first-class carbine training with Mr. LAV, an awe-inspiring rifle to go with the 3 day course, plus more! Astonishing!!! I can’t thank everyone enough for all the time and dedication it has taken to make this epic giveaway possible.

Codie May 20, 2012 at 8:09 am

Is it October yet!?!?

ewilmore88 May 20, 2012 at 8:46 am

Great giveaway from a bunch of great companies. Can’t wait for this thing to be done to see if I actually won the BCM rifle and a spot in that vickers class. That would be an amazing experience. Thanks again for putting this thing on!

kraft May 20, 2012 at 9:37 am

Checked out this Bcm AR at new frontier armory this weekend and it’s a sweet weapon . Love to have the training also . Hint hint !!!

Plstu May 20, 2012 at 10:20 am

That is one SWEET rifle! Thank you to everyone involved for the opportunity to win it.

Codie May 20, 2012 at 8:31 pm

This is an exciting giveaway! A well built AR15 and more!!! 702Shooter and Mr. Ben Bunker know what they are doing when it comes to firearms and giveaways. I would be honored to take that rifle off your hands, WE absolutely will go shoot it though, also you will not have to twist my arm to take the 3 day carbine course, I will be there early and I will bring refreshments for the class… Just sayin!! I hope I win!! ;) Thank you!!!!

oldschoolshooter May 20, 2012 at 9:28 pm

And I hope you don’t win.

I’ll tell ya what. I’ll pay for any red dot sight that 702 or Mr. Bunker wish to add to this rifle and remove myself from the entry pool if you kick this fucker off this site or at the very least disqualify him for abusing the system.

This is a genuine offer. EOTech Aimpoint Trijicon you name it. I’ll pay up to $1,200 for it if you get rid of Codie and anybody else that follows in his foot steps.

702 you have my email if you want to work something out.

LVMikee May 21, 2012 at 12:33 am

OMG…I can’t stop laughin’. That’s an awsome offer!
I mean no disrespect to this contest, but I gotta agree with OLDSCHOOLSHOOTER, this guy and others like him give new meaning to the words “enter as often as you like”.

I’m goin’ to go set my alarm so I can post a comment every couple hours.

702 May 21, 2012 at 12:46 am

There are always going to be people who push the boundaries too far. Ben has told me about a couple people around Vegas who stop in to the shops and fill out every entry form they have then return the following week and do it again. And that’s just for a spot in the class.

Some people here have used proxy servers and created multiple accounts to enter from. I’m not ignorant of their tactics and I would rather see an enthusiastic person like Codie win it than the tools who have registered with email addresses like “”

702 May 21, 2012 at 12:34 am

oldschoolshooter, please play nice. I understand that Codie is a tad overzealous but no need to attack the man.

I appreciate your offer but I am already working on a lead for an optic directly from one of the 3 companies you mentioned. :)

oldschoolshooter May 22, 2012 at 9:24 am

Glad you are working on an optic. If your connection doesn’t work out then my offer still stands. I’ll do my best to leave out the bad language but as long as he is posting his drivel then I will respond with mine.

sepseverus May 20, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Okay let me win please dear god

sepseverus May 20, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Hopefully i win

gordoat May 20, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Such a sweetheart! I know if I won that it would make me out shoot Carlos Hathcock ! Well maybe out shoot ol’ Blind Wille. When he shoots the safest place to be is where he’s aiming. I would dearly love to own a world class rifle like that. It would make me better looking & taller also. Run fast & jump high. Would you believe it would make my year?

Codie May 21, 2012 at 9:01 am

Okay I realize that I must apologize for my reiterate overzealous comments, I have absolutely no intentions on abusing any system or by any means disrespect this website, giveaway or any of the people involved or its participants. I have never won anything in my life and I have always wanted a great AR such as this one. So I guess I just got a little carried away with this incredible giveaway, can you blame me? Win, lose, or disqualify has a lifelong fan and supporter. Respectfully

TANK May 21, 2012 at 9:46 am

I was just looking at prices to do a very similar build…This is a pretty sweet GAW. Thanks to all the sponsors, I’m quite sure I won’t win, but I can hope. :P

nogalesjim May 21, 2012 at 10:25 am

I am a big Larry Vickers fan. I would love to meet him a receive the winnings. Please consider this my entry into the sweepstakes drawing!

DLBNH May 21, 2012 at 12:10 pm

What a corker! If you listen closely to your monitor you can hear it calling my name.
I work at a gun manufacturer, maybe I can write about the differences in the way ours shoots in comparison. Great giveaway.

anubis108 May 21, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Sweet tap dancing Marry get me that gun! Would love to have that and meet Larry Vickers too. Fingers crossed…

simplesb May 21, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Nice site and nice offer. Nice enough to leave the state of California for. Here to some good luck for a great prize. I think I found a nice site to read up on as well.

marriageishell May 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm

nice to see guns being given to someone and not taken away. this package is really awesome got my fingers crossed!!!!

TEXEL May 21, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Wow, thanks for the opportunity to win such a sweet package deal! The upgrades are awesome and the Larry Vickers’ 3 day carbine training course is beyond the extra mile. Here’s hoping…….

2eighteen May 22, 2012 at 5:33 am

This will surely beat the .22 I have!

Codie May 22, 2012 at 7:23 am

Late last night I honestly had a dream that I was in a class, it was in the evening or night (I could not tell which) with a handful of others, and we were in some sort of poorly lit shooting range. The instructor; in which I could not make out his face was what seemed to be a giant, larger than life and an excellent shot. He was making smaller than a dime size groups at 100yd with standard iron sights it was remarkable. I don’t remember really anything else, it is hard for me to recall my dream. At first I was a little hesitant to post this among other reasons, but if I don’t it will eat at me for days! This dream made me realize that I should not give up on this phenomenal giveaway. A sincere thank you goes out to everyone involved with this giveaway!

Codie May 22, 2012 at 7:42 am

I forgot to mention that the instructor was using the AR from this giveaway.

oldschoolshooter May 22, 2012 at 9:18 am

I had a dream that you didn’t win anything but still showed up like a true fanboy. In my dream you caught a ricochet and had to be life flighted out. Then the life flight helicopter crashed and only the crew survived. After that Bravo Company gave free lightweight carbines out to everybody who entered this giveaway. Except for you of course because you were then deceased.

I woke up with a smile on my face and came here to post about it then saw your post. How strange is that? It must be destiny calling.

LVMikee May 25, 2012 at 8:21 pm

…I just peed my pants a little. LOL

cbob1911 May 22, 2012 at 10:04 am

i would love to add this to my measly collection of firearms!

abizmalknight May 22, 2012 at 11:40 am

This is truly an incredible offer. Winning this would get my collection off to a great start.

mike11 May 22, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Whoever wins is quite lucky that is a hell of a one-of-a-kind gun being given away with a three day training session with a hell of a one-of-a-kind guy. Thanks to 702shooter and all the sponsors.

demory11 May 22, 2012 at 1:57 pm

This prize package is one of the best any shooter could hope for. It is the complete package, even 1000 rounds of ammo, that any gun enthusiast, competitor, military, law-enforcement, hunter, target shooter, or just someone who wants a relilable and efficient home defense firearm will be lucky to own. Good luck to all and be safe.

NateIU10 May 22, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Fingers crossed I win!

702 May 22, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Crossing your fingers isn’t going to help one bit if your comment doesn’t qualify. You will have better luck winning if you read the giveaway rules.

eqtigger May 22, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Now thats a nice gun. If I win this my husband will be stoked.

bisonium May 23, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Wow, I come back every now and then to check on this thread and there is A LOT of enthusiasm in here! Pretty good indicator you guys have put together a killer package. About the only thing missing here is…MORE COWBELL!!!

Warzone415 May 23, 2012 at 7:53 pm

702 Shooter and its affiliates have really outdone themselves with this package giveaway! I’m from San Francisco, CA, the heart of no you cant – ville and a package like this is seemingly impossible to fathom! To win that package would be legendary! A tricked out BCM Platform, and a Vicker’s package session from our Nevada cousins would almost make me consider moving to NV! During these hard times, it is always pleasant to dream of things that make one happy! Good luck to everyone and thank you to our awesome hosts for blessing some lucky SOB with one helluva early christmas present!

wopspice May 31, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I’m down in Los Angeles…and although not as bad as SF…I feel your pain. Maybe a good idea to find a friend or storage locker in NV so you don’t have to convert the rifle to CA legal ;) I’ve been wondering about it…

dxporker May 23, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Count me in this is awesome of you guys!

shootmeadam May 23, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I’d love to win this piece and very much enjoy taking firearms classes! God Bless America!

linestorming May 23, 2012 at 8:37 pm

sweet BCM AR-15. count me in, and the classes just the frosting on the cake.. I need this AR desprately lol peace………

macdragster May 23, 2012 at 9:16 pm

This is the BEST package around. My trigger finger will probably fall off from shootin’ it so much-then I’ll just switch to one of the 9 backups…………

Biggizzel May 23, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Very nice package you guys have put together here. Looks like I’ll be requesting the days off from work just in case. It’s a nice 4 hours ride from PHX & I have a bunch of family in the Vegas area. But thanks again for taking the time to put together such a killer giveaway & good luck to all who enter!!! Big G.

highpowerd May 23, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Well I’m a Lil new in the gun world I guess, I grew up with overprotective parents. But now that I’ve had the chance to start up I can’t stop! All I have right now is a savage axis 308 that I love and an ak-47 WASR-10 on layaway. ETA 7/2/2012. But I would LOVE to add this to my now ever-growing collection. And it is a rifle that I can really appropriate! Thank you for giving people the chance to own the things only hope and dream to have one day!

glynn72 May 23, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Unbelievable giveaway. Sweet deal guys. Good luck to everyone.

RETIREINARIZONA May 24, 2012 at 7:21 am

Codie May 24, 2012 at 10:50 pm

I don’t care what anyone says, this AR giveaway is seriously off the chain and I want to win it!!! 702shooter, Mr. Ben Bunker, and all of the incredible sponsors broke the mold by putting the finest handpicked AR and equipment up for grabs. This rifle is set for years of hard operation and on top of it all, 3-days of training with Larry Vickers to go with it. Outstanding!!! The AR and the course are a truly brilliant combination! I have never seen a giveaway like this one and I’m so appreciative and enthusiastic to be able to participate in it. Thank you!

702 May 25, 2012 at 7:13 am

Although you’re welcome to continue posting, please keep in mind the Giveaway Rules and make sure each of your comments count. Perhaps you should care what I have to say and adjust your entries accordingly.

Codie May 25, 2012 at 7:55 am

I do value what you say 702 and read you loud and clear. Thanks for another chance, 3rd times a charm.

It should be 3 strikes and you’re out. I’ve just spent the last couple of hours reading all these entries and you sure have proven yourself to be a greedy bastard. I love the fact that another member chimed in and offered to up the prize package if they got rid of you. Too funny.

LVMPD SWAT BLUE May 25, 2012 at 11:40 am

I couldn’t agree more. It’s people like this guy that ruin things for others. One of the shops I go to regularly has told me about people filling out books of entry forms at a time and then they don’t have forms for others to fill out because of these jackasses. This Codie guy may not be taking away entry forms but for Christ’s sake how many times can one person write the same shit over and over again? It’s pretty pethetic.

oldschoolshooter May 25, 2012 at 1:26 pm

My offer still stands.

oldschoolshooter May 25, 2012 at 1:25 pm

You should have read him loud and clear the first time he mentioned it.

littleandres09 May 24, 2012 at 11:14 pm

very nice package guys!!! good luck to everyone!!

ajareno1 May 24, 2012 at 11:47 pm

i want 1

702 May 25, 2012 at 7:14 am

I want people to read the giveaway rules and post valid entry comments.

a1tac May 25, 2012 at 12:44 am

This is one nice giveaway and a awesome rifle. Thanks for doing this.
As a disabled vet this would really help me out.
I could really use this.

Thanks! Peace!

702 May 25, 2012 at 7:16 am

I’ve seen a lot of entries from disabled vets. I wish you all the best of luck!

RamminIt May 25, 2012 at 6:33 am

Kudos to Ben Bunker and 702shooter for giving back to the gun community. This is a prime example of what this sport is all about. The LAV package is awesome by itself but the the rifle giveaway is the cherry on top. I held this AR at Guns and Ammo Garage a few weeks ago and let me tell you, pictures do not do it justice.

Gonzofire May 25, 2012 at 7:00 am

This is an amazing oppertunity.I would really make the best of this prize if I win.I am a disabled Veterean,former hostage,and well versed in firearms.My buddies and I have recently started going to an outdoor range on Windy Gap Mountain each friday.It feels great t start shooting again.We fire every caliber you can possibly dream of.I have spent the last four years recovering from injurys suffered while on active duty,I currently spend about as much time in the Veterans Hospital as I do at home.This would be a welcome addition to my home.As I recall all the rounds I fired thru my M-16 and my favorite M-60,i’m starting to get antsy about the possibility of winning this contest.So that being said best of luck to everyone.

Homeline May 25, 2012 at 7:48 am

Looks like great gear and well thought out package. The class sounds fantastic.

Nicksarr1 May 25, 2012 at 8:10 am

This is Beautiful! I want to win! Please!

Chris3357M May 25, 2012 at 9:13 am

I can’t wait to win this AR!

ab4ster May 25, 2012 at 9:13 am

What an opportunity this would be to become victorious in this contest!
I have been extremely interested in purchasing a BCR but have been unsuccessful for the past 6 months!
Thank you for the chance and good luck to everyone.

like that people are still offering info and training to the little guy. looking forward to the drawing for the awsome ar-15! Thanks for the great site. Good luck to all. Remember the fallen without them we have no freedom!!!

L.Engel May 25, 2012 at 10:17 am

I’m so happy I decided to walk into my local dealer to check out a gun for my wife (S&W 686) and i saw this (considering she said “the only way you are getting another gun for yourself is if it is free”). I do however have a question about the 3 classes what time of day or night are they suppose to take place (for work/religious reasons). other than that this contest looks amazing and kudos for being able to throw together such an amazing package.

702 May 25, 2012 at 10:20 am

Hello L.E.,

It’s not 3 classes, it’s a 3 day class. The winner must attend all 3 days. At this time, the hours have not been set but I can tell you that they will be full day long classes and not in the evening.

L.Engel May 25, 2012 at 10:38 am

damn… i guess i can’t win this prize. thanks for the opportunity and the quick response i will be looking out for you guys a lot more in the future

702 May 25, 2012 at 10:43 am

You can’t win the prize because you are unable to attend the class due to religious reasons?

L.Engel May 25, 2012 at 10:55 am

ya it is the Jewish Sabbath on Saturday

702 May 25, 2012 at 11:12 am

Ah. Something that we will have to take into account for next years promotion. Thanks for the heads up and I’m sorry that luck didn’t fall on your side this time.

However, I will check with Ben and see how he feels about the situation. He’s made an exception for active duty military personnel so he may flex a bit for this as well.

L.Engel May 25, 2012 at 11:17 am

for the off chance i win that would be amazing thank you.

benbunker May 25, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Unfortunately, the class is three days and the curriculum will build on each day, so you would need to be there for all three days. Your situation wasn’t something I had considered, but we might be able to do something about it for next time. It’s just that weekends are so much more convenient for all involved (don’t have to take time off of work, etc.). Sorry about that!

buddy May 25, 2012 at 10:26 am

Saw this rifle out at NFA the other day… Great rifle…. Who ever wins this package will be one lucky ……

Black Knight May 25, 2012 at 10:40 am

I really need to check this site more often. The giveaways you do are awesome and it’s very generous of those who put in the products time and service to make it all happen.

I saw this AR on display over at Wild West Guns today. It’s a sweet little rifle and is much lighter than any AR I’ve ever owned. I’ll be crossing my fingers and praying to baby Jesus.

buddy May 25, 2012 at 10:40 am

to 702, a couple of questions and I apologize if this has already been asked but to try and sift through 2700 comments will just take a long time….. Will the class your are so graciously giving away, will there be spots available to purchase if we want to attend the class and we didn’t win? Also, i appreciate the time you took to bring this out and show it off at NFA last weekend. It’s always good to get a lopok at these projects in person.
Last question I have, in the post you say we can go to several local gun stores to enter the drawing for the class (just the class, not the rifle package and the class), well, I went to Northwest Arms to do just that and there were no entry forms that I saw. Also there was no eveidence that the drwaing could be entered there at all, so what does one do in that situation? My apologies if this is not the right place to ask these questions, and thanks for all the reviews you do. I have found them to be very informative and helpful when working on new projects.

702 May 25, 2012 at 10:52 am

Hello buddy,

“There are 15 spots in the class and Ben is giving them all away.”

Actually, there are 16 spots in the class but Ben is being all greedy like and keeping one for himself. The nerve! ;)
No classes are available for purchase.

It was nice of NFA to invite me out for their event. I get out to as many of those kinds of things as possible. Right now the rifle is on the front counter at Wild West Guns and it should be there until I take it to the Crossroads of the West gun show on June 9th & 10th. After that I’ll be rotating it through some of the other stores who are participating in the Vickers Class promotion.

As for no entry forms at Northwest Arms, part of that is due to others who stop by weekly and fill out ALL the forms. :( However, there should have been a box on a counter somewhere there. If you don’t see it, just ask Tom, Michelle, or Patrick.

Thanks for the feedback on the site. :)

buddy May 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

Thanks for the reply. Im gonna head over to Wild West guns and have another look at that rifle anyway, it is a nice set up. I will see if there are some entry forms there as I am very intersted in that class. It would be nice to win the whole package but the knowledge to be had from the class is worth more than the whole package in my opinion. I need to talk with the guys at Wild West anyway, got some work to be done on my Rem 700… Thanks again for all your good info out there….

702 May 25, 2012 at 11:24 am

Hopefully they have some more forms. There were only 4 or 5 left yesterday morning.

benbunker May 25, 2012 at 1:54 pm


I was just at Northwest Arms today buying some Glock mags. The entry box is still there, but off to one side when you enter (by the tv viewing area). There was also an almost full booklet of entry forms sitting in front of it, on the table. You may have to hunt around a little there, but they do still have them. Bust Michelle’s chops about it if she’s there. ;) Feel free to check out the other shops as well. If any of them are out of slips, let me know so I can re-supply them! Thanks and good luck!

wopspice May 25, 2012 at 10:47 am

Question…win or not, I’m curious if anyone knows of any good carbine classes out by Los Angeles? It’d be awesome to get a spot in this class but Vegas is a hike if I go to additional classes, etc. Thanks for the advice!

702 May 25, 2012 at 11:00 am

In fact, I do.

Mossie Tactics offers carbine, handgun, and shotgun classes and they are based in Los Angeles. Their schedule shows a “Level 3 Carbine” class in October. Not sure what their requirements are to attend that class but I’m sure they would love to hear from people like you who are interested in the series. Buck Mossie will be Larry’s assistant instructor for the October Vegas class.

wopspice May 31, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Thanks 702. I’ve only put about 150 rds through my current AR so the lvl 3 class would probably be beyond my skill level with the weapon but the class and Mossie sound great. I’m going to keep an eye on the schedule and check out the Pistol 1 class and hopefully the Carbine 2 class after the Carbine class out in Vegas ;)

LVMPD SWAT BLUE May 25, 2012 at 11:36 am

I spent some time talking with 702 and looking over this rifle last week at the New Fontier Armory sale. I completely forgot to come here and enter until my wife pulled the washed up business card out of my pocket. Count me in for sure. I’ve always wanted to train with LAV.

CarissimiRBeast May 25, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Hope I win!

702 May 25, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Dude, if I had any hair left on my head, I would pull it out in frustration over people like you who are not paying attention.


L.Engel May 25, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Bwahahahahaha!!! its so funny/sad how many people do not read the rules. It doesn’t take that long to come up with a half decent question or comment to post.

buddy May 25, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Some people will NEVER get it….. I think it has been said about enough…..READ THE RULES OR YOUR COMMENT DOESN’T COUNT!!!!!! I HEAR YA 702!!!!

702 May 25, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Unfortunately, I think I’m going to have to say it MANY more times. :(

buddy May 25, 2012 at 1:02 pm

I say you just let them post and disregard them, it’s on this main page already about a dozen times…. Good luck with the insanity my friend…

702 May 25, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I completely agree with you. On the other, I can already see people complaining about not knowing so the more I remind them, the better I will feel about not awarding the prizes to those who haven’t paid attention.

The other thing is, after I started posting about it in the comments, the number of good comments increased.

Some days it bothers me more than others. Truth be told, the energy would be better spent on the new projects I’m working on. :)

buddy May 25, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Yes sir it would (the nergy being spent on new projects)…. I’m gonna put a post up everyday that says READ THE RULES just to help you out (not as an entry to the contest though) … surely I am joking as that would probably just add to the problem. Anyway, thanks for what you do, Pass along my Thanks to Mr. Bunker for being so generous, Good luck to all and have a good day. I am off to visit some of the sponsors and spend my allowance on some new toy that I am sure I just can’t live without out….

oldschoolshooter May 25, 2012 at 1:27 pm

oxfd611 May 25, 2012 at 1:16 pm

oldschoolshooter May 25, 2012 at 6:35 pm

LOL Another wasted entry. I feel your pain 702. I could never run a site like this and deal with all the dumb ass people.

cougaram May 25, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Would love to own this rifle!

cougaram May 25, 2012 at 6:23 pm

This rifle has everything I ever considered adding to my present AR, and then some. Thanks to all who invested their time, energy, and money to make this dream rifle giveaway possible. You’re all aces!

Found out about this from Mixflip on YouTube. This is a great deal you are putting on. The fact that you are using a quality rifle like BCM blows me away. Thanks for this, I will have to peruse the site a lot more.

mikemike May 26, 2012 at 9:40 am

turbinedave May 26, 2012 at 12:25 pm

nickmimi May 26, 2012 at 1:02 pm

What a great website. I like the information on local stuff like the new Battlefield construction. Thanks to the sponsors for this great give away. It was nice to speak with 702 recently at the new frontier event.

mac2515 May 26, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Only in America. Now, the question is, how long can we maintain this freedom.

Rydak May 26, 2012 at 2:09 pm

God bless the US of A!

Rydak May 26, 2012 at 2:32 pm
