*****DISCLAIMER: I do not have anything to do with this company it is not a sales pitch, it is rather to help other instructors (new, upcoming, and vets) obtain the required packages they need to instruct future students. *****
I know when i was looking for a kit I was subjected to old used firearms. The cost of getting them then disabling them, and then having students use old firearms.

I had talked to Remington and Gravel about allowing sales to average instructors that did not have a so called large company.

Well it seems u can so I am posting the pictures i received, and would be happy to email anyone that wishes the PDF it. i don't have a direct link to the PDF because received it in an email. Just PM me and i will forward this to you.

If it helps one person out i'll be happy.

Seems pricey for a bunch of fake guns no? We always just used old dewat firearms for this purpose.

From my conversations with Remington the firearms are REAL, but have been designed to have the look of a training gun (eg orange stock) just the firing pins have be removed.

They can never discharge ammunition. They are even stamped "non-functioning firearm" on each receiver.

I'm officially in the market! Is this my only option right now? It seems that the used deactivated market is a little scarce...

Anybody that could point me in any direction as an alternative would be muchly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Deactivated is a relative term for instruction.

From my progress to be a instructor (before i had to back out of finishing it) the firearms have to be in working condition for the class, and most of the master instructors that I spoke to said that pulling the firing pin is the effective way to do so.

I bought several firearms that were used for instruction off some instructors getting out of the racket and they were ALL deactivated by removing the firing pin.

Do you know of a place I can buy them? Or are you saying I can pull the pin on my own firearms or just pick up some cheap used ones for the classes?

what i was previously told was that if you pull the firing pins to render them non operable they will work for the class.

Some time back when you took your PAL you used to have to do it at a range and actually fire the guns as well to prove basic accuracy and handling.

I would love to have that as part of the course requirement. My first step was to get certified as a CFSC/CFRSC. Now that I'm getting things put together I can think about doing an introductory shooting course down the road :)

the biggest advantage to this kit is in instructor liability, remington is selling these as 100% dewat firearms with the express intent they be used for instructional purposes, this alone is worth the price of buying them.... if there is an accident of some sort and it was the instructor who dewatted a privatly owned gun he would be on the hook for any legal liability.

some thing to think on, for a small amount of money.... plus you get a cool case that holds all the guns in one pile.

Also good points. Up until this point it was pitched to me as a "then you buy your disabled firearms kit for ~$600" etc etc... I just hadn't planned for the $2000 touch for non-restricted only. I'm going to call tomorrow and check availability. I have a feeling that's what I'm going to end up with.

This must be where all Remington's Recalls go.
