    What is the grip enhancement on the mag well?
    It is a small square of material machined at the front of the magwell with skateboard tape inserted so as to facillitate the grip on the front of the magwell with a wet hand.... The skateboard tape can be removed and replaced with different grits or toolbox drawer liner if wished...

    Tactical carbine course:

    "Outline and Course Objectives
    With every SLR15 rifle that we manufacture & sell to the the public, we provide an invitation to attend one of our 2-Day Tactical Carbine Courses free of charge. We have been offering this since 2005 and many people have taken the opportunity to attend.

    We at SLR15 want to provide people with a quality rifle, teach them how to maintain it and shoot it so they enjoy it; most of all we like to get face-to-face with those that own our rifles, as they are part of the SLR15 Family.

    SLR15 Rifles were featured as the March 2006 SWAT Magazine cover story. Our armoring course and our instructor course were reviewed in SWAT Magazine in September 2004. Our Armoring Course was just currently mentioned in the August 2006 issue of SWAT Magazine, and one of our rifles were pictured (pg.74) in the December 2006 issue of SWAT Magazine in an article by Pat Rogers on Carbine Maintenance.

    The Carbine Rifle is becoming more popular in the urban setting due to its great accuracy capabilities, and generally it is easier to shoot for most people due to its lack of recoil. This lack of recoil, combined with greater accuracy, make it a favorite among shooters.

    At the end of this course, attendees will have confidence that they can shoot at something and hit it, and not be intimidated by recoil.

    Students will learn proper foundations, maintenance, employment, ammunition selection, mechanics and manipulation. This course is designed to hone basic fundamentals while teaching individual tactics and techniques. Movement shooting will be added and stressed. Students will deal with a multitude of different targets at varying distances, and learn to shoot from cover and concealment from twelve-plus different shooting positions. Multiple targets will challenge even the experienced operator. Proficiency will be stressed, as well as reloads, and malfunction clearing.

    Student Materials (Minimum Suggestion)

    * Tactical Carbine Rifle & 3-magazines
    * 1200 rounds of Carbine Ammunition (minimum)
    * Handgun with holster & 200 rounds Handgun Ammunition
    * Protective Ear and Eye Wear, Hat, Sun block, Rain Gear, Water, etc.

    Cost

    Cost for the two day Tactical Carbine Rifle course is $300. Attendance at this course is free one time for registered owners of SLR15 Rifles.

    Location

    This class is generally held at the Westbranch Gun Club in Princeton, Minnesota. We also offer this course at various locations around the US."

    Thanks for the further info , The rifle and the course both are exceptional and congrats . I smith enough not to care for some of the enhancements that are standard on the rifle ( with my uses in mind ) , but have to say its a fine package as listed . I dont honestly think you will build a " better " ar platform much if any cheaper than you got it there . Certainly you could not assemble the same rifle accessorys , course , ect.. as cheap as you likely got into that one .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    I got this rifle with everything included for around the same that I paid for the Colt with no extras..... (Although, I'm hoping the Colt will be worth several times what I paid for it by the time my son gets it...)

    Congrats

    Nice line of very well built rifles.
    Well thought out top quality features without being super-saturated with bogus window dressing crappola.

    I remember reading that they got a bunch of working LEO and SWAT together to butt heads w/ some gunsmiths and machinists in order to really build them right - their primary focus being on total reliability for working LEOs.

    Thanks for posting the thread.
