Check out Vance's in Columbus - they have a great selection you can fondle in person...some pretty good prices too. And they have layaway.

I don't think so, last I saw there were Daniel Defense, S&W, POF USA, Bushmaster...that's all I can remember.

I'm headed over there to get a couple bricks of .22 I might take the time to ask if they would order one for me, and might as well check out some other AR's while I'm at it.

Vance's was fun, saw some Daniel Defense and S&W's like you said, also checked out a cool Heckler and Koch .556. That thing got me going, they had many more black guns there then any other shop I've seen. I asked if they heard of Windham and they said yes but they didn't have plans to stock them just yet. If I order one I'll probably have it sent to Vance's so they can check it out when it comes in and decide if they should carry them or not.

The only downside to the visit was I saw a man walk out with a brand new Springfield M1A , while I left with 1000rds. of .22 and a bottle of Hoppes. I guess it's better then nothing.

Love Windhams. High quality entry level rifle.



The one on top is mine, the lower my Dad's. Took em out for a little pre-thanksgiving shoot this morning. Put hundreds through both of them since we've had them, ABSOLUTELY no failures.

I just wish they'd do a 1:7 twist

Saw one at the range today, they do have a nice fit and finish. Like you said, if they did a 1/7 twist it'd be tempting

Personally, for the inexpensive AR-15, the 1/9 twist is the appropriate choice. Most will be shooting inexpensive 55gr rounds.

"Mil-spec" does not always mean 'better for the consumer'. For example, my JP Rifle is not 'mil spec'. It suits my purposes far better than a 'mil-spec' LWRC.

55gr is just fine out of 1/7. The myth that it willover-stabilize 55gr rounds has been debunked.

Here's a target shot with 55gr from a MK12, 1/7 twist, .5moa

I assume they will release some 1/7 models soon. So far the 1/9's have performed fine up to 62gr that I know. If you feel 75gr with 1/7 is almighty, then so be it. Personally I find both effective.

Hope they will.

And yea ill stick to 75-77gr for defense (Hornady TAP) and accuracy (SWA77, MK262, etc) as I've found they work pretty good

Happy Thanksgiving
