AR-15 Rifle Test Quiz!

AR-15 Rifle Test Quiz

I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Firearms Armorers course. I have covered over 25 different firearms in this course and now I am on the AR-15 Rifle course which is my last firearm in the Armorers course.

I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the future. I am now working part-time with a Gunsmith that has over 40 years’ experience. I have my CHL and my FFL.

There are many questions covering this firearm and I have answered them to the best of my ability but during my study and research I am having some problems with these quiz questions. Either I am not sure of the correct answer or I have conflicting answers. I need to get 85% of the questions correct.

Can you help me determine the correct answers for these quiz questions? Please correct my wrong answers!

Thanks for your help.

The only one I would question is no 40. I believe the trigger guard was designed to be opened with a 5.56 cartridge, in fact I just tried it and it worked without a problem.

After reading this thread earlier this morning, that's one of the first things I checked when I went to the range this afternoon. Works good.

Looks good. The only one I'm not 100% on is the firing pin protrusion. I think your right, but I don't have my armorers book available. I took the Bushmaster course three years ago.

Much of that info on the quiz was taught to some of us in the military many years ago.Now the bit about firing pin protrusion-not so much as that was armorers stuff.

HeHe, yea, that is where I got the part about the trigger guard being designed to be released with a 5.56 round. Add to that the fact that I spent a good part of my Army service in Alaska so as you can imagine, we wore gloves quite a bit, and mittens. Had the mittens tied together on a long tether that draped around your neck so that you could just toss either or both of them off and they would still be hanging around your neck. The gloves were worn inside the mittens.
