Engineers at Windham Weaponry put their heads together and built the parameters for a lightweight .308 rifle (9.05 lbs) which is also balanced and comfortable to handle, without a lot of overly expensive features to keep cost under control.
The result of this is the groundbreaking R20 AR-308, which came together very nicely. The 20″ fluted barrel supplies long range accuracy, yet still keeps the weight down. The Magpul Fixed Length Buttstock brings multiple sling attachment options, along with a comfortable rubber recoil pad under which is a handy storage compartment for spare parts, ammo, compass, granola bars, etc. (well, maybe not all that at once!). The companion Magpul Rifle Length Forend offers multiple attachment options for M-Lok accessory rails and great internal heat shielding. A Hogue Overmolded Rubber Pistol Grip rounds out the ergonomic accessories and is the perfect, non-slip hunting pistol grip.
As with many of their other models, Windham opted to leave the choice of sight, scope or optics up to the individual hunter, as those choices vary so much between individuals. With Mil Std 1913 “Picatinny” rails on both receiver and gas block, they made adding those sight choices as easy as tightening the screws.
So, if you’re looking to hunt big game with a .308 caliber Modern Sporting Rifle, Windham just did all the preliminary work for you. Happy hunting!
