Cheaperthandirt has a sale on a Windham Weaponry SRC .223/5.56 NATO on sale with a 16 inch barrel and 1 30 round magazine for $709 vs. their usual price of $897.
Any opinions on this rifle? Good deal? No?
There is also a Bushmaster Enhanced ACR .223 for $2100 vs. their usual price of $2479.
Why am I looking at this? Because their email appeared in my inbox.
Outdoorsman Guide has a sale on 7.62x39 rounds. 600 for $154. Going to order them soon and have them shipped to my dad. I prefer them over the 5.56.
I recently ran into a brand new Colt M4 at Walmart. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I don’t get out much, and haven’t run into very many Colts. Never one brand new.
I liked it to much, it just had to be added to my small collection.
The form(s) I filled out there were no different in content or number than forms that I fill out from any other FFL in my state. Do you take issue with the paperwork that must be done for new firearms purchases or something? I don't like it either, but there's no other way of buying from a FFL.
Actually, I do.
For all of you guys that like to build, Palmetto State has M4 uppers for $249.00, and lower build kits including buffer tube and stock for $79. At least they did yesterday when we bought 3. These are decent utility guns, and great for the back of the safe in case you need to arm a friend.
Just add a lower.
You’re right - for forged receivers. There’s only something like four sources of forged receivers.
For receivers made from bar stock, well anyone can set up a CNC and EDM machine set to make receivers from 7075 bar stock. That’s not difficult.
There’s another bunch who make receivers from castings.
And then there’s the new polymer lowers.
They all work.
There were a lot of former employees of Bushmaster there in Maine, as well as the physical plant. I don’t know how much machinery Bushmaster moved to NY state when they moved the plant.
Richard Dyke’s non-compete agreement ran for 5 years, starting in 2006 - ie, I don’t think he had to buy anything there. Dyke was leasing some plant space or something to Freedom Arms Group - that might have been something he had to terminate or buy out.
As soon as Windham was formed, he gathered together some investors, then reached out to former employees there in Maine, they “got the band back together” of employees who wanted to make rifles again and ta-da.
It’s good to see a company who cares about quality in the market. There’s a ton of crappy low-rent schlock I’m seeing flooding into the market.
Just add a lower.
And a bolt carrier group.
