Windham Weaponry SRC 7.62x39

We received word at SHOT Show 2014 that Windham Weaponry would be releasing a version of their original SRC rifle with a barrel chambered in 7.62x39, the popular round for the AK-47. The Windham Weaponry SRC 7.62x39 is now available and is a great entry level option for those looking to shoot the AK round out of an AR-15 platform rifle. MSRP is $1056, so you can probably expect a sub-$1K price point once they hit the shelves. With a Direct Gas Impingement System this is definitely not an AK rifle, however given  its AR-15 specs, you can easily interchange after-market accessories just like any other AR-15. As with their other SRC rifles, the 7.62x39 variant is lightweight at just 6.15 pounds. We have provided key specs below.
