The 2014 AMC class schedule:

November 5 - 7

CMP Custom Shop
1803 Coleman Rd, Anniston, Alabama

Basic Nomenclature

The Civilian Marksmanship Program is pleased to announce the first “CMP-AMC” or Advanced Maintenance Class for students with strong mechanical aptitude and a desire to learn how to work on their M1 Garand rifle. The first AMC class of 20 students was held Friday, 1 November 2013 at the CMP’s Custom Shop in Anniston.

The three-day class is intended for individuals interested in knowing how the M1 Garand rifle functions in detail, as well as those desiring to know how to properly perform advanced maintenance procedures to their personal rifle(s). The class involves classroom lecture as well as hands-on shop time.  Tools will be provided for students to use during the class.

Basic Functioning

This class is not intended for gunsmiths or students with advanced knowledge of the M1 rifle. No prior armorer or shooting experience is required to attend the class. Students will each assemble from parts their own CMP Special rifle (manufacturer of receiver may vary depending on the current inventory available) that is included in the AMC fee.  Some of the key components of the class will include:

  • Component purpose and function
  • Use of gauges
  • Commercial barrel installation, chambering and headspace
  • Component selection and inspection
  • Fitting and proper assembly of a complete CMP Special rifle
  • Some discussion of malfunctions and their remedies
  • Accurizing techniques for the M1

WHAT TO BRING:  Students will only need to bring themselves, safety glasses and a shop apron.
