Welcome to The Windham Weaponry Newsletter – Vol. 4 / Issue 5
Mark Eliason, VP Sales & Marketing
In this issue of our Newsletter, I wanted to show off our new Windham Weaponry .300 Blackout Pistol.
With a 9″ chrome lined barrel and a weight of only 4.85 pounds, this piece is not only a blast to shoot, but easy to point and hold on target. The Hogue overmolded rubber pistol grip is a solid anchor for your shooting hand and the knurled, vented aluminum free-float forend keeps it accurate and cool. This pistol is designed for the shooter to add their favorite red dot or laser sight. See more details below, or ask your favorite local FFL dealer to bring one in-shop.
As always, shoot safely and feel free to contact us with any AR related questions.
We’re here to help!

TOPIC: Using the Handguard Removal Tool
In your rifle operating and safety manual, removal of the handguards for standard rifles and carbines is covered on page 23. For some this can still be somewhat challenging. To make it much easier you may find the Handguard Removal Tool very helpful. It’s very easy to use, and you can pop your handguards off by yourself in seconds. Here’s how you use it.
First make sure your rifle is empty.
Now push the removal tool on as shown so the hook end is engaged in the magazine well
Push down on the two handles evenly to compress the delta ring as far back as it will go and separate the handguards. Sometimes you may still have to tap the seam between them on the edge of a table to get them to separate. Once they have separated you can very easily pull them off
We also have our .300 Blackout available as a complete upper. Part number : UR16SFSDHB-300 $980.00

Very Nice Tip by Eric
I was glad to see Eric’s tip last month in the newsletter. (See WW website / Media Section / April 2015 Newsletter – “Gas Ring Replacement”). I checked my rings, which are original with at least 2500 rounds through the gun, and mine were wasted. Luckily I had a set of new ones in a spare parts kit and changed them out with no problem.
This reinforced polymer construction magazine offers superior grip with
a Patent Pending hexagon surface pattern. Because multiple calibers can be used in an AR type magazine, the WW blue anti-tilt follower and blue baseplate insert can at a glance tell you these magazines are specific to the .223/5.56 and 300 Blackout, etc. caliber of your rifle for safety.
The bright anti-tilt follower also offers safer clearing of your rifle’s chamber and is designed to keep residue particles from entering back into the rifle. Featuring a tool free design, no tools or bullet tips are needed to disassemble and clean the inside of this magazine. A heat treated 17-7 PH stainless steel spring allows for long term magazine storage while fully loaded and stainless steel resists corrosion unlike music wire or silicon steel springs.
The HexMag 30 is also lighter than other leading AR15 magazines – tested and approved by the National Tactical Officers Association.
HexMag Grip Tape allows you to customize your Hexmags, or any other flat surface, as well as provide additional grip. One sheet (46 hex shapes) is enough to cover both sides of one Hexmag magazine if you fill every hex shape of the magazine. Also, one sheet is enough to cover both sides of 2 Hexmag magazines if you fill 50% of the hex shapes of the magazine.
The Grip Tape is already die cut into the exact shape to fill the hex-shaped cavities of the Hexmag magazine. You simply peel and stick onto the magazine. You can also apply the leftover hex grid pattern to other surfaces – nothing will go to waste! Choose from Black or Grey. Photo shows installation of Grey on a sample HexMag (magazine not included).

What’s New in LE
The month of May has brought some very nice weather and the snow in Southern Maine is finally gone.
May has brought a new rifle configuration to Windham Weaponry as well. We are very pleased to introduce the new 300 Blackout Pistol. This pistol will have a 9″ barrel and will also include many upgrades.
It is now available at special pricing for both active and retired military so please reach out to me, Todd Coons, or to my assistant, Cindy Thompson, for the details and pricing on the pistol. I can be reached at Tcoons@windhamweaponry.com and Cindy can be reached at Cthompson@windhamweaponry.com

Are you active in law enforcement or the military? Are you retired from law enforcement or the military? If so I have a deal for you. Please contact my assistant or myself to receive special pricing on the R14M4PHLHT or the R14M4PHLHT-7.
This is a 14.5″ barrel with a pinned and welded Phantom 5C2 flash hider, fixed A2 front sight with a .040 sight post and a 6 position telescoping stock.

Meet the WINDHAM WEAPONRY TEAM
Lori Tibbetts – Shipping Dept.
Lori joined Windham Weaponry in April 2015 in the Shipping Department, which she says is “the best move I ever made.” She had previously worked in some other factories, mainly in the shipping and receiving department, and also did other things when she was not busy, being a Jack of All Trades.
Lori grew up in Windham, Maine and worked at a gas station there for 8 years. She then moved to Denmark, Maine when she was 20 and met her husband. Together they both enjoy hunting, fishing, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling and shooting, including helping him with ammunition reloads. Their dog, Jake, even gets in on the action hunting and 4 wheeling. She very much enjoys working with her husband in the vegetable garden as well.
Lori and her husband are also very proud of their son, who served in the Army as an MP.
