MARKETING NEWS

 

 

Mark Eliason, VP Sales & Marketing
In the history of long range competition shooting, there may not be any more famous name than Creedmoor.
Competition shooting was very popular in the last half of the 19th Century, and the newly formed National Rifle Association (1871) worked with the New York State legislature to acquire and develop 70 acres of land bought from a Mr. Creed near what is now Queens, New York on Long Island. The Creedmoor Rifle Range was opened in June of 1873 for the purpose of holding matches and promoting long-distance rifle shooting.
In 2007, Hornady developed the 6.5mm Creedmoor centerfire rifle cartridge which while a close cousin to the .300 Winchester Magnum in trajectory, offers the benefits of lower recoil and shorter case length – enabling it to work in the AR-10 platform.
So, following on the success of our Windham Weaponry .308 models, we proudly introduce the Windham Weaponry 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle. Featured below, and with full details at www.windhamweaponry.com   this 20″ barreled tack driver offers an appealing combination of features and accessories for the dedicated long distance shooter. Take one out to the range, and you’re sure to make Mr. Creed proud!
To see all our rifles and accessories, go to www.windhamweaponry.com   
or call us for a free catalog (1-855-808-1888) – We would love to hear from you.
As always, hunt and shoot safely, and feel free to contact us with any AR related questions.

First make sure the rifle is unloaded, and then separate the upper receiver from the lower receiver.

Using the chamber plug or another small tool, push the magazine catch button in as far as you can into the receiver. Unscrew the mag catch from the button and remove.

 

 

Insert the ambi magazine catch all the way into its slot in the receiver and push the magazine catch spring in with the button and get the button started on the threads of the mag catch. Turn it in until you can turn it no further.

 

 

Push the button in as far as you can into the receiver and turn the ambi magazine catch in about 4 or 5 turns then let it seat into the receiver. The magazine catch stud should be flush with or just under the face of the magazine catch button.

 

Now you can unlock the magazine with the trigger finger of either hand.

This Month’s Question is:

I am interested in your 7.62x39mm rifle – Model R16M4FTT-762.

Will standard AK magazines fit this rifle?

 

Answer:
No, AK type magazines do not work in our 7.62×39 rifle. The magazine needs to be an AR style magazine to be able to be retained properly in the lower receiver. The magazines we are currently shipping with our 7.62×39 rifles (shown ) are heavy steel construction and designed for that cartridge.
Magazines designed to be used in an AR15 platform in the 7.62x39mm caliber should work. 
 
Here is the AR Platform 30 Round 7.62 Magazine that we sell:
