Hi All,

First deal post here, I hope it helps out some other AR15 first time buyers.

Great deal @Sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore [sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com] on an entry level Windham Weaponry Carbon Fiber M4A4 AR15 .223/5.56 NATO with a Vortex Strikefire II Red/Green dot scope (1x optics) for $699.99 with free shipping. Not sure if it's by state but I also did not pay tax as a Maine resident. Both the AR15 and the optics have great reviews. Sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore [sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com] also has the firearm alone for $550 with free shipping which is also a great price. Lowest SD price to date is $499. I had to post after seeing thumbs up on S&W M&P Sport II for ~$550.

I pulled the trigger on this deal after much debating about building my first AR15 myself to be different but this was too hard to pass up. Plus the rifle comes with a lifetime transferable warranty which is nice for peace of mind, hard plastic case, and rifle sling.

In the box:
-Windham Weaponry Carbon Fiber SRC AR15 223/556 Model: R16M4FTT-CF1SF [sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com] - $550 solo
-30-round Magazine
-Rifle Sling
-Hard Plastic Gun Case
-Vortex StrikeFire II Red Dot [amazon.com]
-Cantilever ring mount
-T-15 Torx Wrench
-CR2 battery
-Flip Cap optic covers

Hope I covered everything, grab them while you can! Must use your FFL or ship to FFL facility. Fees for FFL transfer additional.

Sorry you bought this op, but it is just not a good price. The rifle alone for $550 is not bad, but the scope is just a 1x with bells and whistles. Right now the ruger deal at cabellas would be better than the basic rifle though, even if there is shipping and ffl fees. Having the ruger name on it allows for a better resell to noobs that only know brands.

$550 for the bare rifle is not a bad price but a carbon fiber molded receiver? I prefer the tried and true aluminum ones. But to each his/her own.

The Ruger at cabela's will have co-witness on an optical sight due to the front sight post.

This Wise Arms [wisearms.com] for $549.99 is also an alternative.

I wouldn't touch anything with a carbon fiber receiver. This is not a deal either, there are plenty of every level ARs for 500 - 600 that are at least aluminum and the vortex strikefire II is what? 100 - 150?

I'm confused how many of you actually had a carbon fiber receiver to be so confident about its inability to be as good or better than aluminum? Straight from the horses mouth at windham the carbon fiber receiver is better in every single aspect minus the extreme cold and being clumsy and dropping the rifle as most of us know CF is brittle it very extreme temps..
Otherwise it's lighter, stronger, and doesn't get nearly as cold as aluminum. Since I don't plan on shooting it below freezing temps pretty much ever it's a no brainer for me

I was also surprised how many advocated against the carbon fiber. I will admit when I received it, it is not as pretty but for my purposes it's going to suit me just fine. I am assuming most of the hesitation and opposition is tied to the "tried and true" mentality.

It's not like whatever you're shooting at is going to care what the rifle looks like anyway. I can't personally speak for a CF receiver, but I think Windham is made up of the people who used to work at Bushmaster? I wouldn't have a problem using a CF receiver.
