A first look at the Windham Weaponry CDI that we just added to our collection of AR-15 rifles. This is actually our second Windham Weaponry rifle. The first, a Windham SRC, is now 2 years old and has performed flawlessly. So, expectations are certainly high for the CDI.
The above image shows the CDI in its stock configuration, which includes a Magpul MOE Stock, MOE Grip, and Angled Fore Grip. The rifle also comes with a Diamondhead VRS X-556 Free Floating Handguard, Diamond Integrated Front & Rear Sights, and a Vortex Flash Hider.
Side note: I don’t recall ever using Diamondhead sights, but my first impression tells me that I am going to be a big fan. I am finding that my eyesight isn’t what it once was. While I downplay this issue with my wife, I can’t hide from the truth at the shooting range. I really struggle with iron sights! However, the sight picture provided by the Diamondhead sights really seem to compensate for my less than perfect vision. I’m excited to see if this holds true at the range!
Stay tuned for more on the Windham Weaponry CDI…
