We’re getting right into Fall here in Maine! The daylight hours are quite a bit shorter and the air is crisper every day. This all of course turns thoughts to hunting, and we hope you’ll take advantage of our Fall promotion: Take 10% Off All Retail Items – and if your order is more than $50, we’ll ship it free (via FedEx ground). And, there are special items – different every week – that we’ll take 20% off.
Any of our hard hitting .308 models are perfect for large game – we’ll feature several in this newsletter, or go to www.windhamweaponry.com to see them all.

TOPIC: Installing the Diamondhead D-45 45 degree Off-set Sight Set
First make sure the rifle is unloaded!
If you need a good option for back up iron sights but have no room for conventional sights because of your scope set up, the Diamondhead D-45 sights may be just what you need.
With these sights you can flip them out and aim down the side of the rail of your rifle rather than on top in the conventional way.
You just screw them on to the front and the back in the appropriate locations, and then push the little switch on the sight base to deploy. They flip out and up all in one quick motion. This way if you are trying to hit a target closer in than you are able to pick up easily with the scope, you can easily flip the iron sights out for this application. Also if your scope becomes damaged in the field you now have a very important back up sighting rig.
This set will work on both a long railed handguard on the same plane as the upper, or on our SRC models with the same plane gas block up front.
I just wanted to say hi, and let you guys know how much I love my rifle. I purchased my SRC back in 2012, being my first gun I personally purchased. I put a couple thousand rounds through it, loving every slap of recoil. In April of 2014 I joined the Army, and was unable to shoot my baby at all. Since joining, I have put rounds through all sorts of M16s and M4s, and you know what? I hate(d) them. I absolutely despise shooting my issued M4. But, I finally got my father to send my SRC up here to Alaska and received it Oct 2. I promptly put 500 rounds through it (steel cased too). Loved every second of it. I cannot tell you enough how much I love my rifle, and how much joy it brings me. My reason for messaging you is my reason I initially bought your rifle, you guys care. I really don’t even care for a response from you (though it would be nice), I just want whoever it is that reads this to know that you guys and gals are awesome.
Have a wonderful day,
This tool allows the operator to clean the weapon and restore the bolt and carrier group to “tactical tolerance” in a matter of minutes. This investment-cast 300-series stainless steel scraping tool removes carbon build-up from the bolt, bolt carrier, and firing pin flange, and is small enough to stow conveniently in your shooting bag or gun case. It is designed for AR-10’s with a .308 caliber bolt and carrier group.
Features include bolt cleaner/scraper, firing pin cleaner, ¼” hex head, carrier cleaner/scraper with a patch hole. The bolt cleaning chamber is CNC machined to precisely fit a mil-spec bolt. Approximately 3.5″ long/1.5 ounces. 100% made in the U.S.A.

What’s New in LE
We are VERY excited to announce the opening of the new retail store located here in Windham Maine, at the new Windham Indoor Shooting Range and Retail Store located right here in the Windham Weaponry factory complex. So if you’re plans are taking you to Maine, please be sure to stop by and check out the new store. The indoor range is scheduled to open in November.
Just a reminder that from now until October 19th I would like to offer those that qualify special pricing on the SRC-308 as well as the .308 in TimberTec Camo finish. These are two amazing rifles that will get the job done in the woods or in the fields. Each rifle is supplied with a 20 Round Pmag (unless state restrictions apply), QD sling swivel, shipping in a hard plastic case.
Please make a note on your calendar for my next armorer’s course that is being held at the factory in Windham Maine. The next class here at the factory is going to be November 10th/11th and I do have a few spots left so if you would like to attend please go to the link provide for additional information http://www.windhamweaponry.com/le/training.asp
I will be traveling to a few shows in the month of November. I will be attending the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Officers Association Conference the week of November 15th. From there I will be traveling to Chicago for the Illinois Tactical Officers Association Conference from November 22nd to the 24th. If you are going to be in the area of either of those shows, please be sure to come by and introduce yourself.
Stay safe out there,
