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-SS has a 20" stainless fluted barrel with a matte finish. The forged 7075 T6 aircraft aluminum lower receiver has a durable black hard coat anodize finish with with TimberTec True Timber Snowfall camo coating. The knurled, vented aluminum free-float forend, the solid A2 stock, and the standard A2 plastic grip are camo-coated as well. The VEX is ready for optics with an A4 flattop receiver and a picatinny mounting platform. 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-SS is shipped with a hard plastic gun case, a black web sling, and one 5-round magazine.
