From the onset, Windham Weaponry has had one goal: to build the finest AR type rifles in the country. Their models feature the finest 4150 chrome-moly vanadium steel barrels, which are chrome-lined for long wear and ease of maintenance. Windham's VEX Pepper has a 20" fluted stainless steel barrel with a matte finish and a laminated wooden stock. The forged 7075 T6 aircraft aluminum lower receiver has a durable black hard coat black anodized finish. The VEX is ready for optics thanks to its A4 flattop receiver with raised picatinny mounting blocks. Additional features include: a Compass Lake Specification chamber with a matched Carpenter 158 steel bolt, an aluminum trigger guard, and a manual safety lever with indicator markings on both sides of the receiver. Every VEX Pepper is shipped with a hard plastic gun case, a black web sling, and one 5-round magazine.
