Windham AR
« on: August 26, 2019, 03:44:34 PM »
Really like this gun its fun and accurate and being in7.62x39 cheaper to shoot.
However in less than 500 rds this has happened 2x. First time they sent a new mag catch and I installed it. Shot about 5 mags thru it (I only load 20 in um). Clean n back in safe. Took it out Saturday and about 1/2 into mag 2 it drops to the dirt. Look at receiver and yup broke again. Call um this am they sent return label asked for it and all 3 (factory windham) mags back to evaluate. I hate shipping guns back

Isn't Windham Weapons the company that started from Bushmaster Arms when they sold Bushmaster to Remington?

I have an older Bushmaster AR that was from the original company before Remington bought them out some years ago. That thing is dang near indestructable! I have lost count of the rounds I have put through it, and it usually rides in the gun rack on the gold cart for taking out coyotes.

My LEO son has a 15-20 year old Bushmaster AR 15 5.56 that he has carried in the trunk of his patrol vehicle since the day he bought it. No optics just a plain Jane. Serves him well.

IIRC, I bought my Bushmaster back in 2009 or 2010. It had belonged to a deputy in Navarro county, and was about a year old when I bought it, very lightly used, because their department ended up buying AR's for their deputies. So he traded it in on a new pistol, and I bought it for a decent price. Came with the case, sling, four magazines, and an extra set of handguards, and grip.

Yes I do believe WW was born out of the aforementioned.
Yes it is a great weapon outside of this hiccup.
Got it all boxed up and ready for ups man.
Hate having to return items for warranty.

I hear ya Shield. As long as they have decent warranty and are honoring it, that is the bright side of this.
