Windham Weaponry Carbon AR
« on: November 09, 2014, 07:43:52 PM »
This is my new Windham Weaponry AR-15. This is the Carbon fiber SRC (sight ready carbine).

The upper and lower and made of 60% polymer and 40% carbon fiber. The red dot is a cheapy Primary Arms piece, but works awesome.

For those who aren't familiar with Windham, they are the original owner and workers of Bushmaster, before Bushmaster was bought out back in 2006.

1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

Windham contracted with some big name carbon fiber expert in Arizona to do the uppers and lowers. They are much improved over the old Bushmaster Carbon-15 that didn't seem to work too well.

Very nice!     Had a chance to give it a work-out yet?

That's "top shelf" Power! Just out of curiosity why the short length of smaller barrel O.D. in front of the hand guard?

Not sure...that's a standard M4 profile barrel. Their heavy barrel models are the same diameter all the way.

Just traded my Windham Carbon SCR off for a Thompson last week :)
I said I was an addict. I didn't say I had a problem.

Honestly, I never even tried it, it was a spur of the moment purchase for a banging price I couldn't say no to. But as time passed, the temptation to fire or really even look at it went away, so it went away.

Hey Danny, I found the description of the M4 barrel in the Windham catalog. It says the recessed area is for attaching the M4 grenade launcher :)

Not knocking your gun, but I had a poly upper and ripped the threads off of it. Scared the crap out of me. Purchased an aluminum upper, rebuilt the rifle and sold it off and made 50.00. Granted that was some time back, but I am "gun shy" on poly uppers now. How yours woks well for you.

It's ok..I'm hearing a lot of that from people because previous poly guns had a lot of issues. Windham took all those issues other guns were having into account when designing this gun, and solved all the older issues. I searched online and could not find one person who's had an issue with this rifle...everyone raves about it.
