The story? Well the Windham Weaponry story is here. It hasn’t changed. But it just so happens that they’re continuing to grow their product line and aligning themselves with the right companies to get outstanding work done and do it with a smile. In short I like who they are and what they do. So there is already an up side with me. Unfair advantage? Maybe.
Windham Weaponry’s all new SRC (or Sight Ready Carbine) now comes in a .308 Winchester/7.62 NATO offering that weighs JUST 7.5 pounds! I feel like that is exceptional even for a direct impingement rifle. It really does have a great weight and balance to it. Prototype endurance testing has seen the two torture rifles undergo 5600 rounds and 7200 rounds apiece respectively with no failures or no extra attention, lube or a good deep cleaning. They’re workhorses.
The SRC 308/AR-10 style rifles from Windham Weaponry are accurate too. At least that’s what early testing shows. Below is a picture of a 3 shot group fired using 168 grain Aussie Match Ammo. The mid weight profile barrel has a 1-7 twist pattern to aid in shooting the heavier 30 cal bullets (of which I am a fan).
This AR-10 style receiver gives the appearance of billet with an integrated trigger guard and bolstered appearance ironically similar in fashion to the Windham Carbon reinforced looking carbon infused polymer receiver pair. The SRC 308 is made with similar influence from POF-USA at Windham’s plant in Arizona. The rifle also has QD (quick detach) sling points built in at the bayonet lug under the picatinny gas block and ambidextrous QD points toward the rear of the receiver. Great forward thinking.
Still shaking my head here thinking about that 7.5 pound weight.
With an MSRP right at $1400, the Windham SRC 308 will also be one of the most budget conscious 7.62 AR pattern rifles on the market today.
