Weapons? What do you own?

Recommended Posts

Gerowen    1,243

Picked up my Windham Weaponry HBC model AR-15 today. Here's some pictures I took of it, straight out of the factory. Been spending about the past hour trying to wipe all the packing oil off that it came with cause it seems to be really clinging to the metal (packing grease?). Anyway, here's some pictures. It came with one 30 round magazine, a shoulder sling, a chamber block (for easily identifying the weapon as clear when walking around a range) and a hard plastic carrying case.

Photo 1 - In the case

Photo 2 - Slipped in the empty magazine and was messing with the collapse-able stock when the wife wanted to snap a picture

Photo 3 - My Collection is finally complete, for now.

Edit: I know the gun cabinet is all different colors, I built it myself in about an hour out of a bunch of scrap wood I had laying around, and an old fleece cap to place inside the notches to the wood wouldn't scratch the weapons.

Nice gun :)

Try stripping it down to get plastics clear of the chemicals and then use brake or carb cleaner on the blued metal, hidden area first as a test, followed by Remington's Rem Oil. Painted metal is another matter - try Murphy's Oil Soap or Goo-Gone, again first in a hidden area to be sure it's safe.

Called them to make sure my warranty registration went through and while on the phone I asked her what they had wiped it down with and she said that they just test fire 10 rounds and then wipe it down with Rem Oil before they pack it up, so when I disassembled it, wiped it down and oiled the insides myself that was fine. I'd always heard of people having "packing grease" on their ARs and having to use brake cleaner and stuff to get it off before firing, but she said they don't use it and that it's perfectly fine to fire it fresh out of the box if you wanted to.

Cool. I've had a couple of weapons arrive with enough grease on them to lube a 1956 Chevy :p

Here's my Bushmaster M4A3 Patrolman almost done (same one in my sig). Just need to add the Yankee hill machine Phantom 5C2 flash suppressor to it yet,should arrive in a few days. Probably add a BCM gun fighter charging handle to it soon. BTW love that sling, bought it from a place that makes custom paracord slings, its very comfortable.

That sling does look nice.

Recent target with the .50 Hawken, and pics of my baby below. 75 yards using the Creedmoor sights, set trigger adjusted to a strong breeze, 150gr of Pyrodex and a 500 grain projectile removed from a Winchester/BRI 12 gauge ballistic sabot - which happens to be .50 cal and one of my favorite swamp & brush loads; pigs, bear, deer etc. After 40 years it still amazes me how accurate that rifle is, even with super-heavy loads.

XD's are nice, but why sell the FAL? That'd have a permanent home here :)

Don't have any weapons. But remember firing the L1A1 while in the ATC, good fun. Also fired the Lee Enfield .303 and the L81 Target rifle(also 7.62 cal).

Anybody know of any good accessories for an AR-15 that will attach to the bayonet lug? I don't really have a need for a bayonet, although it would be cool to have one, and I hate to see a functional part of my AR not being used. It's kind of like owning a car with a tow mount, but no ball hitch to put in it.

ProMag and others make a Picatinny accessory rail that attaches there. IIRC they run about $25. Light, laser, combo light, whatever...

Had to sell it to buy my WRX. That and .308 is expensive to shoot, most places around here sell it for about $1.25 a round :(.
