MARKETING NEWS

 

 

Mark Eliason, VP Sales & Marketing
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.

I thought I’d share this photo with you. This 6×5 South Dakota Whitetail was a one shot hunt.
 

 
My Nickel/Pepper .308 Hunter is everything you say it is. Light weight, accurate and very comfortable to shoot.
The wood style and plating finish get a lot of “Wow’s”. I am proud to own a rifle from a company such as yours.
I’ve told your ‘Story’ over and over.
Thank you,

Flandreau, SD

P.S.  I wish I’d have weighed him. I called him away from some does and he was looking for a fight
*****************************
Here’s a special reminder that if you haven’t seen the impressive – and amusing – series of torture tests performed on a Windham Weaponry MPC Rifle, go to this link on our website:
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.
