04/06/13: We have moved to a new web host and the downloads (plugin) section did not survive. In the meantime I have moved the 2013 NRA Instructors Discounts to its own page:

NRA Instructors Discounts (2013-4)


3/09/2013: Per request of S&W ™ legal counsel – ALL documents created/owned by the company known as “Smith & Wesson” (a registered trademark) will be removed. As requested this includes pictures of items which may be copyrighted the company.

2/21/2013: I am told that Ruger has suspended sales of the instructor program.
6/13/2013: I am told that Ruger will be resuming the program in July.

    Any updates on a S&W Instructor price list?

    • remat457 says:

      Got a response back directing me where to to contact. I haven’t heard anything back yet, but it took them about a week to get back to me the first time.

      • david says:

        i talked to s&w today and they said they are still waiting on approval for pricing but they are being told should be very soon

  2. Michael says:

    i agree its completely under rated for the price it is right now, def has some really good aspects and then a few you either love or hate….. ill try to write up something this week

  3. Michael says:

    last i spoke to S&W they said they would be mailing out price lists in mid feb any word on if this has changed ?

    also you are correct about CZ those prices are above retail i bought a P-07 recently at my locally cz retailer and they still have them for 450$ out the door

    • remat457 says:

      A couple of people (including me) are working on it. Rumor is that it is available. I just got a response back from their new ticketing system, so I am working my way through to it. lol

      I am a fan of the P07. I think it is under-rated. I would like to post a review and/or pics if you are interested in writing something up.

  4. Mike says:

    Are we certain that the CZ price list is the discounts? I checked several and they are ABOVE retail. Last year they were a good percentage off of retail.

    • remat457 says:

      Supposedly price increases coming. One of the sheets says “instructor retail” which I thought was weird. I thought prices were a little high last year. I could a P07 (admittedly from a CZ direct dealer) for the same price without shipping and FFL fee. In WA we pay sales tax either way.

  5. Tate says:

    Do you know if the Mossberg discounts are for NRA instructors or just hunter ed? They are very hard to get through to.

  6. James says:

    Check the CZ list prices carefully vs online retailers before buying.

    Maybe CZ has some price increases for their distributors that are not reflected by retailers online yet. In either event, I BEAT some of their instructor prices today in a online retailer price comparison vs. the instructor prices.

    Last year that was NOT the case on the models I look for with my youth shooters.

  7. Ron says:

    I called S&W the other da, and they will not extend the 2012 discount. I will keep checking. If Beretta or any other big companies have something, let us know.

    • remat457 says:

      Thanks for checking! I was hoping for a couple of revolvers not on the list. I have feeling that this year, unfortunately, the programs are going to be slow coming.

  8. Ron says:

    Thanks a ,illion for this site!
    Happy New Year, and God bless ya!

  9. Ron says:

    Thanks a million for this site!
    I passed it along to the other instructors in my company, and hope others use it wisely.

  10. Snowcatt says:

    Thanks a bunch for putting this information online; I can’t figure out why NRA doesn’t do this.

    Any idea on when 2013 Instructor pricing will be available? I presume we can no longer order under the 2012 pricing?

    Thanks again for your efforts,

    • James says:

      I just received Ruger’s 2013 price sheet for NRA instructors. Some guns have changed from the 2012. Prices went up, that’s for sure. I just called Ruger and they emailed it to me.

    • Cobrasc3 says:

      Last year the S&W list didn’t come out until late May. Orders placed against the 2012 list from S&W had to be post marked by 12/15 and was good until 12/31. So basically it was only good for seven months. I used the discount for a 1911 from them. Due to the current political environment, I wish I would have taken advantage of the discount on an M&P 15. Although, I think the prices will level off and come back down soon enough. I hope you don’t mind, I am putting another website as a resource for Instructors. I am not affiliated with this website at all. Thanks, REMAT457 for these links. Very appreciated.


      • remat457 says:

        Back in 2011 before S&W had a new price list out they sent me the 2010 and let me order off it. Of course, that was a few years ago. Anybody asked if you can order items not on the list (like Ruger)?

    • remat457 says:

      Hello, thanks for the comments. Usually the 2012 program is good until replaced with a 2013. Seems like Feb is when they start coming out, but some of the big companies like S&W down have one until late (like March or April). No idea about this year though, things might be a little different with everything that is happening politically.

  11. Chris Jenkins says:

    There doesn’t appear to be any download links anywhere on this page. Am I missing something?

  12. Jim says:

    Where are the Glock & Trijicon pages?

    • remat457 says:

      Glock doesn’t have one (except GSSF and ARMORER) and Trijicon you have to email credentials with item #s for pricing. I have a couple sample prices on there somewhere (not in front of a pc at the moment). Hope that helps!

  13. mb1332 says:

    anyone heard anything from or about springfield armoury or sig???

  14. Marc says:

    I am unable to open the price list for CZ. It appears to have some sort of lock.

    • remat457 says:

      Hi, From downloads? I was able to diwnload it to my phone and view. I assume you tried opening it with an unzip tool? or would it not let you download it?

  15. BrewGuyTim says:

    Awesome! Though I see they work at about the same speed the NRA does in regards to sending out credentials. ;)

  16. BrewGuyTim says:

    Hey, thank you for compiling this list. Being a brand spanking new NRA instructor, finding resources like this are invaluable.

    One thing. The link on the Ruger list isn’t working. I get an error when it tries to open the .pdf.
