Default 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 Firearms 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 year’s 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.

I gave it a quick look and would say 7 should be c.

On a serious note are you going to come on the forum and ask gunsmithing questions when you are working on a customer's firearm? If so, what's the cut for those who answer the questions?

You only answered 17 questions. There are 18 questions. Did you start with question 2? Thanks for your help!

No, these questions are not Gunsmithing questions. They are general Firearm Armorer's questions. If I had Gunsmithing questions I would ask an experienced gunsmith, maybe the one I am working with part-time. The course I am taking is not a Gunsmithing cource. Thanks for you help!

No, I will only ask Armorers questions!

For #6, technically the gas enters the gas block, which may or may not incorporate a sight, then the gas tube and finally the gas key.

For #7, this is somewhat tricky in the wording. Contact with the barrel extension lug causes the bolt to rotate to the locked position. The gas recoil pulse causes a counterrotation and unlocks the bolt. The cam pins allows the bolt to rotate along the slot in the carrier and anchors it to the carrier, it does not directly cause a rotation unless the bolt is contacting the barrel extension in some way.

Lol. I had the exact same thought on #7 (low profile gas block) and just didn't bother knit picking after that.
