    One of my best friends is buying his first AR15 in anticipation of Barry's re-election promise of a new, more strict AWB...he's been eyeing one for a while now and had settled on a RRA, which I thought was a really good choice, but recently he decided to swtich to Windham Weaponry.

    More pointedly this one

    I'd never heard of them, so I went looking for reviews, and, as the internet is always to be, everything conflicts. I can find 500 GOOD reviews, and I can find 500 BAD reviews...so I figured i'd refer to the experts: You guys and gals.

    Any opinions / experiences on Windham?

    I agree he should have got the RRA. All he got was a Bushmaster under a new name! And did not get the great 2 stage NM Trigger that comes standard on most RRA Rifles along with RRA/Hague Grips and Side Sling Swivel that is standard with most models. Oh well obviously a sales job by a dealer!:(

    I haven't shoot one yet, but they are nicely built, a good weapon. Built by the guy who started BUSHMASTER.
    A good choice .

    I bought one, but because of some other personal issues haven't shot it yet.

    It's the ORIGINAL bushmaster management team, not the Cerberus built junk

    It appears to be a very well built sport utility rifle. Proof will be in the shooting, but cleaning it, I was impressed.

    Personally, with so many unknowns, why roll the dice with a new company? Especially when the old BM wasn't the brightest harbor light.
