American Gunsmithing Institute now has a new DVD course on the S&W M&P in all its variations and calibers.

AGI Instructor and Master Gunsmith, Robert "Bob" Dunlap, uses a "cut-away" model to identify parts and internal workings, demonstrate proper cleaning and lubrication and to help you better understand the unique design and function of the handgun. Bob not only shows you the intricacies of civilian versions but also takes you through the M&P model .45 with the optional thumb safety, mandated by the military and some law enforcement agencies.

Bob delves into the history of "plastic" guns, beginning with GLOCK and how Smith & Wesson responded with the Sigma model pistol. He'll provide you with the origins of the "M&P" name and concept and go into the design and function through explanation and demonstration of the various systems. Bob will discuss certain aspects of the handgun and freely gives his opinion based upon his years of expertise as a gunsmith. From the steel rails to the trigger, you'll get the insider's look at operation, potential for problems and how to overcome them.

Bob will also explain and demonstrate the importance of proper disassembly, cleaning and lubrication to keep your S&W M&P in top performance condition. Bob reassembles the pistol while demonstrating certain key areas to watch for potential problems. He wraps up this must-have course with his own personal observations on the popular pistol, what to look for and whether or not Bob "The Great One" would put the S&W M&P in his gun locker.

This course is a valuable aid to any owner of the S&W M&P series handguns. Full of visual demonstrations, tips and techniques, you'll go back to it again and again to get the most out of your S&W M&P. The AGI Smith & Wesson M&P Semi-Auto Pistol course is available at americangunsmith.com for only $39.95 (Product Id#149DVD).
