Windham Weaponry Introducing 300 Blackout Rifle at SHOT Show 2015

I guess the biggest surprise was that Windham Weaponry didn't already have a rifle chambered in 300 Blackout. However, now they will introduce a rifle chambered in the increasingly popular subsonic caliber option with a great 13.5" handguard from Diamondhead along with their T Brake. This isn't their typical sub-$1k rifle, but there are some premium touches including a Chrome Lined 16" Medium Profile 1:7 Twist Barrel and weighs in at 7.55 pounds with an overall length of 38 inches. You can find full specs below. They will be first showing the new rifle at SHOT Show 2015.
