In the heat of the Summer (OK, well, as hot as it gets in Maine!), we’d like to introduce you to a hot new Windham Weaponry 9MM Carbine.
This unique new offering incorporates some of our Multi-Caliber System features with a package of top notch accessories, all in the easy to shoot and affordable 9MM caliber.
We’ve done things a bit differently in this month’s newsletter as we encouraged our Head Gunsmith, Erik Winter, to do the write-up on this rather than one of his usual tutorial articles, and we combined that with our Feature Gun for the Month. These 9mm Carbines are so new that you may have to press your local FFL Dealer a bit to get one in for your closer inspection as they are just hitting the distribution chain now. But don’t hesitate doing that, and enjoy your Summer!
For this month’s gunsmithing article, rather than a how-to column I’d like to present our new 9mm Carbine because I’m pretty excited about it. I think this is a great addition to our line of rifles, and it allows you to get your feet wet in the MCS (Multi Caliber System) world by starting off only buying a single caliber rifle. This gets you a great 9mm carbine with the added versatility of being able to upgrade to other magazine wells and calibers down the road if you wish. You can buy a standard AR magazine well and carbine buffer and it will allow you to use uppers in 5.56, .300 Blackout, .450 and 7.62 x 39 (AR style). You could also later buy an AK47 magazine well and MCS upper in 7.62×39 and be able to use standard AK47 magazines. So the options you have in the future are numerous all using the same lower receiver that comes standard with our 9mm carbine.

This Month’s Question is:
People often ask “What is the Windham Weaponry Special Build Program ?”
Our Special Build Program allows you to order a custom built rifle through your local FFL Dealer. Your uniquely configured rifle will be built at the factory to suit your individual taste and shooting style. Most Windham Weaponry rifle models can be ordered with a wide variety of our Windham Weaponry accessories custom installed by our professional Gunsmiths.
First, choose the rifle and list of accessories we offer (see website or catalog) that you would like installed on your rifle. Then visit your local FFL gun dealer and ask them to call us for pricing. The dealer will order the rifle, we will build it and ship directly to your dealer.
If you have any questions about this process, or about parts compatibility, please give us call.
Note: You can also have us build an Upper Receiver Assembly with accessory parts of your choice. We can do that through a direct factory order, so just tell us what you want!
Here are links to our website section called “Trick My Rifle” where we show you some of the variations on the AR platform. Let your imagination run wild!
