Course Description

The SPA is a three day (over 24 hour) course that will give you the theory knowledge, hands on practice and skills needed to fully gain Steyr's accuracy potential and maintain it overtime for you or your shop's client. With only 7 students per class instructed by Steyr's Training Academy director Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta, results are insured for all participants. He is a long-range world champion that has over 25 years experience as a military and police sniper instructor and armorer, and is one of the World's Extreme Long Range leaders. The SPA course is not your typical "parts replacement class". Instead of just covering the basics, our "precision" course focuses on the art of assembling and maintaining a precision rifle. This includes all special needs, optics, ammunition, and complex adjustments, making this so much more than a standard Armorer Course. In our personal trainer environment with only a handful of students, our expert will give you the knowledge to gain 100% effectiveness from your Steyr precision rifles, as well as complete repairs and keep them performing at competition/sniper standards. The course will cover all the maintenance, replacement, disassembly and re-assembly procedures, trigger adjustment, and even barrel change. In addition, you will also learn skills not found anywhere else that are custom-tailored to each student's needs. These skills include scope rail selection, scope base types (their advantages and problems), proper fastening and securing of critical compeition or sniper rifle optics, trigger adjustments, advanced stock adjustment, mounting competition or sniper scope systems, advanced optics, and night vision. We will also cover the limitations of certain mounting systems and how to test and evaluate a scope system on how it will perform before you ever take a shot. Having this kind of knowledge about your weapon system will allow you or your client to perform at the very best. In addition, we will cover advanced cero procedures for armorers, no shooting field zero, and how to add custom tables adapted to the real scope, ammunition, and performance for each individual rifle. By using these custom tables instead of standardized tables created for another rifle and scope combination, you will see a huge difference in the perception of your work. At the factory and at the range, we will also test fire our own work. After seeing the results you will never go back to the low-tech, rifle maintenance or zeroing; the difference in excellence will speak for itself. By the end of the course you will be able to maintain, repair, adjust, and zero your Steyr precision rifle and optics at up to long range specs, as well as have a set of tables to support it.

Steyr Precision Armorer is a stand-alone course for those wanting to become better armorers and shooters with excellence in the maintenance and zero procedures, as well as having an advanced knowledge in what makes a precision rifle. The SPA course is a perfect complement to the SPR-I (Steyr Precision Rifle I) course and will allow you to keep your weapon system working under any circumstances.
