Captain, what is that, a Buck Rogers ray gun?  Have we entered some sort of time shift portal?
No, Cadets, that is our feature rifle for this month, the Windham Weaponry SRC-THD with its unique Thordsen Stock.  A variation of our Sight Ready Carbine, it features a highly accurate chrome lined chrome moly steel barrel with a crowned muzzle, a 10-round magazine and Thordsen stock, along with all of the other components of our SRC models. Of course, this rifle is backed by our industry best Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
If you happen to be going to the NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky (their 145th by the way!), please stop by to see us at at Booth #2847.  You can see many of Windham’s models, as well as our Multi-Caliber System RMCS-4, which offers 4 calibers in the same rifle through interchangeable barrels, bolt carrier assemblies (as necessary) and magazine wells.  We will be at the show from May 20th to 22nd and would love to say hello.
Our rifles and accessories can be seen at www.windhamweaponry.com or call us for a free catalog (1-855-808-1888).
As always, hunt and shoot safely, and feel free to contact us with any AR related questions.

TOPIC: A warning about suppressor use on Carbon Fiber rifles


With suppressor use becoming more and more legal and popular, it should be noted that the Carbon Fiber rifle was never designed for use with suppressors due to the increased back pressure.
For anyone that has purchased a Carbon Fiber rifle and wishes to use a suppressor, the receivers have to be upgraded to aluminum. To inquire about this upgrade and the cost just give Customer Service a call at 1-855-808-1888.

If you ever have questions about your rifle, you are always welcome to call Windham Weaponry Customer Service (Toll Free: 1-855-808-1888). Shoot Safely!

QUESTION:  I would like to install some accessories on my AR rifle. Can I have them installed by a Windham Weaponry gunsmith?


ANSWER:  Should you wish to have accessories installed that we carry, you can send your upper or rifle to us and we will install them for you. Please give us a call (Toll Free: 1-855-808-1888) to set up a return authorization before sending your rifle or upper to us. We do not charge labor/gunsmithing on parts you purchase from us.
If you already have parts/accessories that you wish to use, we will install them for you at our Gunsmithing labor rate. Please give us a call to discuss what parts you have and we can give you a cost estimate, and set up a return authorization to ship your parts to us for the installation.

Subject: Just wanted to write a review
I first heard about Windham Weaponry about a year ago, while I was in the market for an AR chambered in .308. I considered many different companies, but on recommendation from my local FFL dealer, I decided to give Windham a shot. The rifle has performed flawlessly for the past year, having close to 1000 rounds through it. Since then, I have bought numerous items from the Windham store, including a Midwest Industries rail and low profile gas block for my .308. I have also bought a heavy buffer from them for my non-Windham AR15. Every single time I have dealt with Windham, they have been very quick about processing and shipping the orders, and every part I receive it TOP quality. I am forever a fan of Windham Weaponry, and hope to do much more business with them in the future. Keep up the great quality!
Thank you!

Subject: Re: A1/A2 rear sight assembly
I just wanted to say that I really appreciate how helpful and friendly you guys are. You make me feel like I matter as a customer. It is refreshing, most of my customer service experiences with other companies can be described as mixed at best. I will definitely go to you for my AR needs again in the future. You are a credit to the industry, and I wish more people would follow your example.
Thanks again.

April brought with it some great stuff for Law Enforcement here at Windham Weaponry.

I would like to give a big THANK YOU to the guys at the Police Training Academy at Kansas City, Kansas for hosting WW for a Demo day. We had 42 officers from several area departments attend which made it a huge success. We were able to put lead down range using several different WW rifles (Full-Auto and Semi-Auto) with NO issues at all. A special thanks to Senior Master Patrolman Brian Trzok for being such a great host.

May is going to be an exciting month as we will be attending the NRA show in Louisville, KY from the 19th to the 22nd. We will be in Booth #2847 so please come by and see what’s new from Windham Weaponry.

I would also like to announce that the Law Enforcement Sales division of Windham Weaponry will be offering some GREAT additional discounts on rifles for the month of May 2016. So if you are thinking about buying one of the nicest ARs on the market, please reach out to Cindy or me for pricing.   Cthompson@windhamweaponry.com  or  Tcoons@windhamweaponry.com
