Our new Windham Weaponry Dissipator Upper Receiver Assembly is getting some good press.
Eric “Ebbs” Ebbinghaus, Owner/Founder of HausofGuns.com published this great article, in which he says “Of course I am potentially biased because I believe in what the folks at Windham, Maine are doing. BUT being as objective as possible (and conceding the fact that I think dissipators are pretty cool) this new upper from Windham Weaponry is solid and tough.”
The article, with photos and video, is live on HausofGuns.com at this link:


The complete Dissipator Upper Receiver with Bolt Carrier is pictured below.  These uppers are available in both M4 and Heavy barrel configurations.  Please click the link for complete details.


As always, shoot safely and feel free to contact us with any AR related questions.

TOPIC: How to install a CMC Drop In One Stage Trigger 


First make sure the rifle is unloaded, and push out the takedown and pivot pins to remove the lower from the upper receiver. Put the selector on fire and drop the hammer.
With a 1/8″ punch, drive out the hammer and trigger pins and remove the hammer, trigger and disconnector.

Now with a 3/16″ T handled Allen wrench remove the pistol grip. Be aware of the safety detent spring in the grip and the detent in the lower when you remove the grip. Remove the detent and set it aside so it doesn’t get lost and leave the spring in the pistol grip.

Remove the safety and drop the CMC trigger into the lower.

Insert the hammer and trigger pins and push them in flush

With provided Torx wrenches install screws in the hammer and trigger pins and tighten down snugly

Replace safety, detent, spring and pistol grip

Function test to verify proper function. Check safety to make sure the hammer doesn’t fall with the safety engaged.

Subject: New Purchase

I recently purchased the Windham Weaponry MPC model AR 15 from Cabela’s and wanted to thank you for giving part of the proceeds to the wounded warriors outdoor recreation program and for etching the American flag on the side of the gun. I did quite a bit of research before I bought this particular gun and based on the reviews it appears to be a very high quality firearm. However, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to support an organization that supports our troops and obviously loves America.

I look forward to shooting my new gun for the first time this week with my daughter. Thank you again for caring about those who sacrificed so much for our freedoms.

What’s New in LE
I’m on the road again returning from the Connecticut SWAT Challenge that took place August 18 and 19th.  For more information on this event, please see http://www.ctswatchchallenge.com
I realize that we have a little summer left, but I also know that many of you are now starting to think about the hunting season that is fast approaching.
I know this because I have been selling more and more 7.62×39 upper kits, as well as our new base model 300 blackout (see below). Some are buying the complete rifle, pictured below, and some are just buying the uppers. Please contact Cindy or I for pricing Tcoons@windhamweaponry.com or Cthompson@windhamweaponry.com Please keep in mind that the upper for the 300 Blackout as well as the upper for the 7.62×39 will fit on your mil spec .223 lower.

Although my armorer’s class here at the factory in August is full, please keep in mind that I do have a class here in November. The next class here at the factory is going to be November 10th/11th, so if you would like to attend please go to this link for additional information:
