The AmVIEWnition™ product line was designed to help NRA instructors and Hunter Safety Instructor better display and explain the functionality and components of typical pistol, rifle or shotgun ammunition.
The main compartment of the carry case can carry up to 4 AmVIEWnition™ boxes.
For Reference, when we personally used that kit in our own class (we now use the TC sets), we fit the following in the upper compartment:
Magnetic sight system, cylinder, rifled tube, Airsoft Berretta, pocket gun cleaning kit (including cleaning solution & patches), dry-erase markers, white board brush, eye dominance tool, pez dispenser (to demonstrate semi-automatic principle), whiteboard visuals to illustrate range configuration, open bolt indicators and a stripper clip.
(Note:These additional props & items are NOT included in the product and are simply additional tools we personally use). So, once you tune up your kit with your own additional props it becomes a convenient all-inclusive training kit that is easy to kae anywhere, wheteher classroom or range, without having to worry about forgetting anything.

Use this kit in all of my NRA classes. Easiest way to show parts of ammunition and firing sequence. Hands on involvement for all students.

In an NRA BPSC right after receiving my “4-pack,” as soon as I got to the slide in the ammo lesson regarding riffling/lands/groves, I stopped, grabbed the rifle barrel cutaway, and “both bullets.” After showing the students the “new bullet,” then showing them the bullet with “witness marks," the whole room went: “Ah….” It was a very good training moment for the students, and myself as well. I use the “pistol tray” as part of my BPSC, and will incorporate the shotgun cutaways in other courses too.

My students have really enjoyed it, I appreciate being able to do a show & tell. Nothing helps better than a visual aid!
great teaching aid but too expensive for what you get
Posted by Unknown on Oct 21st 2013
New instructor. Cutaways are helpful but may not justify cost
Posted by dan on Oct 8th 2013
this will make my classes much easier.
Great idea, useful training aid.
Posted by Unknown on Aug 22nd 2013
I ordered the kit with one pistol, rifle, shotgun, and hunter tray. I am very pleased with the product. It is well thought out, and full of useful information. The training value will be immense.
Great training aid
Posted by Russ Hehn on Aug 14th 2013
This is a great training aid for classes, gives students the real thing to handle and understand the concept of how ammunition functions. My kit cam with product that had very rough cut edges, apparently a mafg step was missed, I contacted Amviewnition and they were excellent at resolving the problem, very good customer service, thanks guys
Must have item.
Posted by Wayne Fisher on Jul 21st 2013
I'm a new NRA certified instructor and the AmVIEWnition kit was recommended by my trainer and I've been very pleased with the kit. Used it the first time with a couple of first time handgun shooters and they were amazed with the components and the detail.
AmVIEWnition Four-Pack Firearm Instructor Kit Review
Posted by BRCV R & G Club on Jun 25th 2013
We have included this kit in both our Clubs NRA Basic Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun classes as well as our PA Hunter Education Classes and have gotten great responses from our students. It saves us from bringing in a hodge podge of misc. show and tell props. I found the kit well worth the cost.
Posted by Steve Jeffrey on Mar 27th 2013
Not too bad a set to use in classes. Somewhat disappointed in content & size of unit for the cost. Not sure I'd recommend to others.
Order was incorrect: received two pistol trays in of a rifle & pistol. Shotgun and hunter trays were OK.
Good demo's with room to add your own
Posted by Smoke Pfeiffer on Mar 8th 2013
I purchased the rifle/pistol/shotgun/Hunter's kit. Messed up on my order and received 2 pistol trays. Could not find the return authorization button and had to ask via e-mail. I must be more web illiterate than I thought. Everything was set right and they threw in a .22 rimfire cutaway for my trouble. A couple of the cutaways were kind of rough. Have received positive comments from my fellow Hunter's Education Instructors.

I wish all the companies I deal with had your perspective on customer service. You folks are top-notch and your products have made my job as an NRA instructor so much easier!
Posted by J. West on Feb 18th 2013
I ordered the kit in late January and it took almost a month to receive it. The idea is a good one but it looks like they went to the shed and cut some bullets and cases in half with a band saw. The plano tacklebox is nice and the kits will be helpful in class, but considering what I originally recieved it felt over priced. I complained and they asked me for pictures of the cutaways, which I provided. They apologized and promptly replaced them with nice clean cutaways. Apparently what I received had skipped a fabrication step (and quality control I must add). I am happy with the final product and it does what it is supposed to. The good customer service made up for my aggravation. Just wish they were a bit faster to ship.
Great for Training
Posted by Unknown on Feb 1st 2013
I purchased all four kits (pistol, rifle, shotgun, and hunting). These are excellent training tools when teaching indivuals who have never, or rarely, handled ammunition. The different components and "cutaway" versions really help my students understanding on how things work. The kits are well constructed.
WOW! This is a MUST HAVE if you teach a firearms class!!
Posted by Scott Strait, Practical Firearms, NRA Trainer on Jan 3rd 2013
Quite frankly, this is one of the finest training aids I have. Using the items in these kits, I can literally see it my students faces that they comprehend the inner workings of a cartridge. Comprehension leads to confidence and confidence leads to better performance. The AmVIEWnition folks also have customer service down to a science. WELL DONE AND THANKS FOR A GREAT PRODUCT!!!
STURDY, COMPLETE & HELPFUL!
Posted by Bert Rosado, Rome GA, NRA Certified Instructor, Olympic Shooter on Nov 18th 2012
Students cannot get enough of the cutaways and are very appreciative of this training tool. It allows them to see and examine closely the construction of a cartridge or shell. It is an indispensable component of my classes. A great conversation piece among family and friends. Enjoyment every time you open the case.
AmVIEWnition Four-Pack Firearm Instructor Kit Saves the Day
Posted by Robert Hawthorne on Nov 17th 2012
I work as a CRSO and NRA instructor at a lager gun store and indoor range. I teach classes at least 2-3 times per week and I never do one with out my AmVIEWnition Four-Pack Firearm Instructor Kit. It's a great aid!
The only thing you need to add is a Pez dispenser.
The best training aid I have ever used!
Posted by Randy Jimenez, NRA Master Training Counselor, Indianola, Iowa on Nov 16th 2012
I have been an NRA Master Training Counselor for 35 years. AmVIEWnition is the best training aid I ever used."
Professional appearance and feel
Posted by Glen Rubin, Marshal - NRA Training Counselor, Fort Stuart, FL on Nov 16th 2012
I strive to conduct my classes with a sense of professionalism. I had put together my own package of ammo, primers, and casings. It worked in class but was clearly homemade and cheap looking. The AmVIEWnition changed all that. Thank you for putting together a great product.
this is a must-have for all firearm instructors
Posted by Bill Schwartz, NRA Training Counselor on Nov 16th 2012
I am a very active NRA Training Counselor and own Safety First Firearm Training in Las Vegas, NV.
This is one of the best course I have ever done. Thanks! Very well done!
