Hello to all our Windham friends, customers & fans out there. We met some of you at the recent NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, and that was very enjoyable. We introduced several new models – among them the .450 Thumper chambered for the massive .450 Bushmaster round. That impressive new rifle is this month’s feature rifle – full details below.
We also got a very good reception for our “Bug-Out Bag” which is a backpack portable version of our Multi-Caliber System. All packed into a heavy duty backpack is our MCS rifle in calibers of .223/5/56; 9mm and .22 LR along with other survival necessities.
And with Memorial Day coming up, don’t forget our great new SRC model featuring “We the People” full camouflage based on imagery from the preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America.

TOPIC: Choosing Iron Sights for the SRC
When choosing iron sights for the SRC rifles it is important to make sure you get the correct height front sight. Most manufacturers of rail mounted iron sights make two different heights for the front sight. With the SRC (and VEX rifles) you have to make sure you get a front sight that is for “same plane” sighting. In other words it has to be the same height as the rear sight that is mounted to the picatinny rail on the upper. Some confusion comes in here when you see a company that offers a “Gas block height detachable front sight”. Right now we are one of the only manufacturers that make an AR15 in which the picatinny rail on the gas block is on the same plane as the upper receiver. Most company’s gas blocks have rails that are lower than the rail on the upper. Front sights for these rifles have to be made taller to make up this difference in height. So what happens if you mount one of these taller front sights on an SRC is your rifle will end up shooting way too low and you cannot move the front sight post down far enough to get the gun on target.
Below is approximately what the measurement is supposed to be for the front and rear sights. Note that is has to be the same or at least close to this measurement for both sights.

WHAT’S NEW IN LAW ENFORCEMENT
COME ON SUMMER! I’m not sure how the weather has been where you are but here in Maine we have been getting a lot of rain. I know I’m ready for some warmer weather.
I would like to personally thank those of you that came by our booth at NRA to say hello and check out our NEW products. We are very excited about the .450 Thumper and the Bug out Bag (B.O.B.) so if you weren’t able to make it to the show you can see these NEW items on our website https://www.windhamweaponry.com/ . Also we were able to get some AMAZING feedback on our 6.5 Creeedmoor prototype rifle, so that will be in production very soon.
Our friend – Bob Hagopian – runs a shooting range up in Madison, Maine. He finds that Windham Weaponry rifles are very popular rentals. He sent us a photo of 3 of his rental rifles. He can be reached at: Economy Guns/Indoor Range / 81 Main Street / Madison, ME 04950 / 207-696-5548
MORE ARMORERS CLASSES ADDED AROUND THE COUNTRY
We also have some opportunities for those of you out there to attend one of our Armorer’s Courses around the country. Here is a link with those current opportunities, but please check back as we are working on adding a few more locations to the list very soon.
Our friends at Legally Armed America put this rifle through an arduous battery of tests to see if they could possibly “break it”.
Their You Tube summation states: “We at Legally Armed America have taken all of our clips on our “Gun Bullies” segments that feature the Windham Weaponry MPC AR-15, and put them together into one 35 minute mini-show. Enjoy if you missed any of them! And please check out Windham’s webpage at www.WindhamWeaponry.com for more info on the MPC and other fine weapons.
