My new Windham Arms AR15 Sport Utility Rifle
Is a sweet sweet rifle!

WTH did I wait so long to get one? Had one FTE/FTL, but I think the mag wasn't in tight! I had a BLAST shooting it. Can't report on accuracy, I was at very short distance (25 yds), but getting tight groups with a standing position. Can't wait to shoot it at the longer distance! So far, very please with the firearm. Upgraded iron sight is going to need a touch of locktite, it was loosening up as I continued to shoot.

Give her a good cleaning and schedule a day for some longer range paper punching ;)

Good choice! I knew i wasnt the only one

What are you using for sight iron or optic?

Upgraded iron sights. It was a special Cabela's model, which was the lighter barrel, with an upper rail, and upgraded diamond rear sight.

Do you have an Optic for further out?

Sorry, I promised pics before :( I'll try and get some tomorrow!

May try and get back out to the range next weekend, they go up to 100 yds. Not quite sure how that's going to work out, my old eyes were struggling to focus on the sights and target.

Used a Windham 16" carbine upper on my latest build. Bought a stripped "Jerseyfied" version and fitted it out with a BCM bolt and carrier group. Several hundred round so far and no issues, not that I thought a barrel and upper receiver would cause issues. Only noteworthy item is the recoil shock, I have it mounted to a lower with a full length stock and buffer tube...Jersey doesn't allow adjustable stocks and I do not like those faux carbine stocks. I need to figure a way to get a heavier buffer or just bite the bullet and change out the stock.

Why do you need a heavier buffer?

Am I correct in assuming that you are running a rifle tube and buffer?

If recoil is an issue, a brake would be the cheapest(potentially the most expensive), easiest and fastest fix.

I have a Windham and I love mine. Accurate as hell and fun to shoot. I haven't had any fte/ftf myself after about a thousand rounds. Glad you are enjoying yours.
