A team of the finest firearms people in the U.S.A. has been re-assembled to bring to market the highest quality AR type rifle possible. These good Maine folks - all former employees of Bushmaster Firearms - offer many years of experience in the industry, and all look forward to working with you, to serving your needs, and to building you a great rifle. And, Windham Weaponry, Inc. will back up that promise of quality with a Transferable Lifetime Warranty on their rifles.
The Windham Weaponry SRC “sight ready carbine” was created for those AR shooters who intend to add their own aftermarket sights, scopes or optics, and want a rifle that offers the option of not purchasing factory sights. The SRC offers all the Windham Weaponry quality with the flexibility of front and rear same plane Picatinny Rails.
Finally had a free day and took this out to the local range. Shot great! I have added a few things to this rifle and love how it shoots! Just FYI it comes with a commercial tube, so yes i had to buy a new buffer for my Mil Spec Daniel Defense stock! I have a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 and have ran several thousands rounds on it and love that rifle but after shooting this Windham, yeah I chose the Windham!
I have owned a lot of AR-15s over the past 32 years, and Windham Weaponry is second to none pertaining to craftsmanship, quality and value. Better than the old Bushmasters they previously produced and in my opinion, even better that Colt. After owning the WW MPC for a few years, I decided to get a second, a WW SRC and scope it for woodchucks and coyotes. Best price around! I'm very happy, fast shipping, my first online purchase, 14 days counting Holidays, weekends and the medias anti gun hysteria induced increased sales volume. Great company, AAAA service!
Shipped Fast, great gun, can't beat the free shipping, and no credit card fees! It's nice when the sale price is actually what you are charged. I have ordered a new Ruger MPR because of the way that Sportsmans handled my last order.
I purchased this rifle after doing a considerable amount of research. I didn't feel like building a rifle and Windham Weaponry ARs received very good reviews from those who actually owned and/or shot them. Accuracy and reliability have been excellent with several brands and types of ammunition. I have a couple hundred rounds through mine and zero malfunctions. The fit and finish of the rifle are also top notch. The upper and lower fit tightly together with no play whatsoever. I topped the rifle with a Vortex Strikefire II and Leapers UTG low profile flip up iron sights, and have been very pleased with the accuracy. This is a great rifle, especially for the money spent!
This is a great rifle, whether it is your first AR or you're looking to add to your collection. The fit, finish and functionality cannot be beat for the price! I've had guys with ARs costing hundreds more, comment on how well this rifle shoots and the quality of the fit and function. Mine is topped with a vortex Strikefire II and Leapers UTG low profile flip up sights. Very accurate and, again, you will not beat the quality of this rifle for the money. If you're considering a Windham, buy one. I was impressed!
I bought this AR15 from Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore. Fast shipping, fast delivery & beautifully packaged. Very impressed with the AR from Windham Weaponry. I shot 360 rounds the first time I took it to the gun range with no problems at all. Great performance!
Full disclosures, this was my first AR purchase, and I am by no means an expert. I did months of research before buying from store reviews to YouTube reviews, to self proclaimed gun expert reviews. There are not a lot of recent reviews on this rifle. I was worried given the price on Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore compared to everyone around, and the original MSRP, but I am completely happy with my purchase now. $500 for a gun that sells everywhere else for $100-$350 more...yeah, I feel like I got a pretty amazing deal. I could have spent $100 less on another brand that seemed decent, but after researching Windam Weaponry I had to go with them for this price.
I've run 120 rounds of brass through it so far and with the exception of one failure to feed, have not had a single issue. The failure to feed was right after I had loaded a single round into the chamber manually to let my son take a shot from an AR for the first time. My thoughts are the mag did not seat completely. After a dry fire and recharging, everything was back to perfect function. I bought 5 different types of brass to see if the SRC preferred any particular caliber or weight. Based on what I experienced, I would say 5.56 62 grain Winchester worked the best. At about 50 yards I was putting 10 shots in a 1 inch group. Not the best, but given the red dot was a 5 MOA I'm pretty satisfied. Some of the 223 was a little all over the place, but as I got more comfortable I know I got more accurate. The 5.56 62 grain was the last box of ammo I fired. The finish seems good, but I have very little reference. I did notice light visible between the upper and lower receiver, but looking at a family member's AR, it's less than his DPMS.
There was a lot of oil straight out of the box, and I have a feeling this rifle had been in storage a while. It doesn't bother me given the quality and function so far. The trigger is a bit stiff. I'm not sure if that will loosen up over time, or if some of those cheap spring kits will help, but it's something I will pay attention to and address if needed. I also have an AK, and my personal preference is for the AR. It's lighter, easier to re-acquire targets quickly, more comfortable given the modular design and stock, plus the ammo seems to be more widely available. It also doesn't destroy my shoulder after prolonged use.
If you are having any doubts I would put those aside and buy this gun. I keep checking back to see if the price goes up, cause it seems to good of a deal to be true.
Best platform I have found to mount my MH1. Has all the fixtures and versatility a veteran would want. Not overpriced for the superb quality of Windham. Sportsman's service is unequaled.
Sportsman's had a great price and I bought 3. It's a Windham. Quality expected, quality received.
This is an update on an earlier review on where I said the gun malfunctioned after 4 shots. Shipped the gun back to Windham for repairs and they found the primer from a round had blown out and lodged itself on the firing pin. Even though it wasn't the gun's fault, Windham shipped and repaired it at no charge. Have put around 500 rounds through it since then without a glitch.
Bought my second one to mount a MH1 with a Fab Defense T-Pod. Of all the AR platforms I have shot, this is the one to buy when looking for the traditional style rifle.
This is a great quality gun at a great price. I have put a variety of ammo through this gun and it performed flawless.
The quality and craftsmanship says it all. I have shot many ARS and this one stands out the most. I would not change it for anything else. Very good Rifle. Customer service is awesome in taking care of their customers. My Mag release was broken. I called the company and they rushed me a new part in 3 business days.
I purchased this gun because my brother just bought one and the quality looked good and the gun shot pretty good. Took mine to the range and I shot 4 rounds when the gun quit working. The bolt carrier would not seat into the barrel, not sure what the problem is. Tried breaking down but with the bolt hanging up could not get the gun apart. Have to send to factory for repair. Very disappointed.
I consider this rifle a VERY GOOD all around ar-15. excellent in every way. Just well build and quality. Would not trade for any other 2000 dollar AR.
This is the first gun I have ordered online, wasn't sure how it would work out but I was really happy with the whole transaction. I ordered this gun over the holidays and the first day they were open it was shipped. Received the gun in two days and it was boxed nicely with no problems. I would recommend Sportsmans not only for their shipping but their pricing as well. Was very happy with complete transaction.
This review is more a review of Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore than the rifle. This rifle was the sixth firearm I has purchased from them. All transactions have been fast deliveries with no problems with wrong or defective gun etc. This time was exceptionally fast even for them. I placed the order at 10:00pm on Wednesday December 16th and even with the Christmas rush causing Fed-Ex to be a couple of hours later than usual with the delivery to my FFL dealer, I still had the gun at their shop at 2:50 Friday December 18th.The rifle seems to be perfect and functions great.
The time it took from placing my order, to receiving order confirmation, to shipping - was lightning fast. The folks I spoke with were knowledgeable and courteous.
Great experience and I would definitely recommend!
I see what Windham is doing right and after firing hundreds of tula and wolf ammo with no problems.. I highly recommend you make this your rifle before they raise the price... all the specs work and the 1in9 twist combined with the fully lifetime transferable warranty makes this a better value then most other 1000$-1500$ black rifles out there.. this SRC is tight...
First time ordering a firearm online, but it was by far much quicker than I expected! My WW SRC arrived packaged very nicely. Double boxed, and very clean. I was very impressed with the quality that is put into this gun. I have only added a few things for my liking, but If you want a very good Ar-15 then look no further...this is the one.
Compared to other brands of AR-15 , you will not find the same features that come standard on this one.Have shot this gun with no issues at all..and am getting 1/2moa @ 50yds, and am sure that can be improved now that I had since added a bipod. Do your research and see for yourself...These guys/gals are building quality right here in the USA!!
This was my first AR-15 purchase. After doing extensive research on many models, I found this to offer many of the features that other more expensive carbines have. I picked this up 3 days after ordering and was impressed of the quality put into the packaging. There were no blemishes at all on my firearm. I then added a few accessories to accommodate my liking as well as a scope. I went to the range and let me just say WOW!! I was very impressed with the performance of this gun and its performance overall! I had never ordered a gun online, but I can tell you that I was beyond satisfied with my shopping experience and will be a returning customer. If you are considering an AR-15 look no further, Windham Weaponry makes a very high quality product.
All my AR research led me to this rifle, and this online store has the best deal on it. Very fast shipping and the people here are nice to deal with. Thanks Syrena!!
I read a lot of reviews, watched a lot of vids, and took in others opinions. This was my first AR and I wanted to not spend too much but not go too cheap either. So went with Windham for the great rifle for the price with also liking the background story of Windham Weaponry, and glad I did. I held many ARs from the various makers and the Windham feels good with being solid. Ive put a little over 200 rounds of Lake City 5.56 and American Eagle .223 with no issues. Would buy again from them and I love this site for the great pricing with quick shipping.
This was my first AR, Ive done a lot of reading, watched lots of vids, and taken advice on the various ARs out there with seeing in person many of the ARs at gun shows/stores. In the end I went with quality with a great price point hence the Windham Weaponry SRC selling here on Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore for the price with no additional costs for shipping/tax compared to paying hundreds more at a gun store. At first I was worried about ordering online, but this site had good reviews on the forums so figured should be safe. I found a great shop near me for the FFL transfer and everything went great. Quick shipping, and quick transfer. Got home broke it down to clean. Got some Troy Micro Battlesights then headed to the local range. I shot a little more than 100 rounds and the rifle performed perfectly. Love the Windham story, love the rifle, and love this site!
Id been looking for a deal since before all the crazy-ness and here it is. Great customer service and fast shipping. Took it out to the range and put 100 rds of steel cased ammo through it with no problem. Great rifle at a great price!
