    I was on steyr arms website earlier and saw where there is a training academy section that says coming soon, March 2018. Has anyone heard of any details on that?

    That would be awesome. I live fairly close to Bessemer but still haven't seen their facility so wasn't sure if they have a range or something there that may eventually include some hands on firearms training. Kinda like the sig academy setup.

    Went to their HQ this year it's a small building but the new one that they are building is supposed to be pretty big I know they have a range facility that they use their in Birmingham to do the shoots at. I was told just to keep an eye out that they were in the process of starting things in the new year

    Training Academy is offering Armorers classes and AUG, Scout, and precision rifle classes. 2 day classes are free with the purchase of a Steyr rifle with a $1250 or higher MSRP. Check out steyrdifference.com

    Review of Steyr Academy- Steyr Pistol Armorers Class. Lunch provided by Steyr.
    Attended the class on May 17, 2019 at the CMP range in Talladega Al.
    Class Started at 8:30 and finished at 4:00. Eduardo Fontcuberta was the instructor, he is very knowledgeable and does a great job presenting the course material. The course goes through field strip, complete disassembly and assembly, troubleshooting and the differences in the Gen 1 through Gen 4 plus the new MF.
    The things I see lacking is the presentation material is not as polished as the Glock Armorer Course. The manual is single sided pages that was printed on a copying machine and put in a three ring binder. There are parts diagrams and a parts listed without prices. To order parts we were told to call Jeff at the Steyr office in Bessemer Al. There is no pistol inspection form for final inspection after reassembly. Steyr does not require you to re-certify every 3 years like Glock does which is a good thing.
    Overall a good experience.
