I am a satisfied Windham Weaponry owner and just want to pass on my thanks for the time and effort in putting the Windham Newsletter together. I look forward to receiving it and enjoy it. It is very informative and it has been rewarding to see how the company has grown and the success the company has had since it opened. I particularly enjoyed and got a good laugh out of this month’s letter with the “Pack” feature.

Many thanks for an outstanding newsletter.

Subject: My new 16″ Heavy Barrel Kit

I got it today, and it was outstanding. Just installed on new upper and I could not be happier with the quality, fit and finish. I’m more than pleased and I’m glad you suggested about a heavy barrel being a more balanced feel.  I’m very happy. Below is a pic.

What’s New in LE?

July brought with it warmer temperatures and new budgets for police departments around the country. I’m happy to say that many of the departments have chosen to go with Windham Weaponry when it comes to making their new AR rifle purchases. So, if your department is going to be looking for new ARs this year, please give me a call. I can custom build most rifle configurations, send you a T/E and still have the BEST price.

As many of you are aware, I introduced our new AR Pistol. 11.5″ barrel with a 1×7 twist and a 10″ Midwest Industry SS Key Mod free float hand guard. We shipped the first AR Pistols on July 30th. It was a HUGE success in sales for the month and the pistol will be on special until August 16th, so please reach out to me if you would like pricing and info on how to place an order.

The Deal for August!

For the entire month of August, I will be taking $50 off of any rifle purchased under my Individual Officer program.  To qualify for the program and the added discount, you must be active or retired Law Enforcement or Military. I will also provide FREE shipping to your FFL anywhere in the continental United States.

To view my rifles please visit the website at www.windhamweaponry.com/le/weapons.asp#axzz38yWfyqpl  and if you don’t see what you want, please let us know and we’ll see if we can custom build it for you.
