Centermass, Inc. is hosting me November 29 and 30, 2014, for two, one-day AR15 Armorer classes. This is in Plymouth, MI (Detroit). Standard infoblurb follows, link to CMI's site / schedule / registration / flyer below. This is not police-only.

AR15 Armorer class with Ned Christiansen
This class will demystify every aspect of the Stoner system as embodied in the AR15 / M16 series. Students will gain a thorough understanding of the fire control group, gas system, and bolt group through pictures, animations, high speed video, and cutaways. Each student will disassemble and reassemble his/her own rifle several times. Discussion will cover maintenance, preventative measures, and repair of certain areas more prone to failure as well as areas that fail less regularly. Barrel change and buffer tube/receiver extension removal will also be demonstrated and discussed. Several quality and design aspects that many manufacturers continue to inadequately address, causing serious problems for the end user, will also be covered. Lube, accessories, and ammo selection will be touched upon.

No time will be spent on things like memorizing model numbers and nomenclature, or disassembling rear sights—only the aspects critical to keeping the gun safe, reliable, durable, and in the fight are covered.

Students absolutely must have eye protection and should bring a flat-bladed screw driver and a small bottle of lube. Students will be provided a 3/16 Allen wrench, a hand punch disassembly tool of Ned’s design, and a copy of Patrick Sweeney’s book, Gunsmithing the AR15. Ned's proprietary tools will be available to fine-tune students' rifles during class.
