Overall great class, facility and instruction.
This was a great course. The facility is amazing, every employee you run into is super friendly. The Daniel Defense family loves what they do and it shows. Joe was great and made the class easy to follow. The quality of this course was better than any other armorers class I have taken.

Take this class!!
The best AR-platform armorer's course we've attended. Recommending to to students/clients/AR aficionados. And we'll be back to take it again. Great instruction, lots of hands-on work. 40+ Years shooting/working on M-16/AR-15 platform - LE/Military/Civilian armorer's courses attended in the past. This is the best of the lot!

Recommend for anyone willing to learn.
Super high quality course. Joe Marler is an awesome teacher and knows exactly what he's talking about. Everyone there was nice and introduced themselves while on the tour. Joe goes step by step teaching everything about the different firearms covered in the course and was really easy to understand. I would definitely recommend anyone to take this course and buy anything DD sells.

Outstanding course!
Best Armorer’s course I have ever attended. Hands down. I have been a firearms instructor for 15 years, and the instruction was impeccable. I learned so much. II would recommend anyone interested in the AR platform to attend. Most friendly, helpful staff in the business. Very Impressed.

Highly recommend
Attended the class in June 2018. Instructor Joe Marler was excellent, with a great working knowledge of the weapon systems and malfunctions that could be encountered. Probably the best armorer course I’ve attended in 30+ years of law enforcement.
