The Windham Project GM9 Review

 

 

We got the Gemtech GM9 in this week to play around with and ended up putting it on the Windham Project. Somehow this project seems to be never ending. I know there are some big things coming out of Windham this year and I am really contemplating getting a .224 Valkyrie barrel made just for this project. Hmmm, maybe I should just bite the bullet and get this gun SBR’d and take it on new adventures.

Freedom Ordnance FM-9 Belt Fed Upper Receiver

ACC0089-1

Having a belt fed rifle sounds awesome doesn’t it? While everyone else is having to constantly change out magazines every 30 rounds or so, you are able to just keep slinging lead down range to your hearts content. Who wouldn’t enjoy that feeling?

Who Wants to Stop?

Until recently, you would have to cough up the dough to purchase a machine gun to enjoy such pleasures. And you know the cost of firing it would add up quickly; even .223 can cost quite a bit when you are shooting a couple thousand round. Because, let’s be honest, you’re not going to want to stop after a couple of boxes.

Firearm Cost vs Ammo Cost

Recently there has been a trend of semi-auto only “machine guns” being released. We recently reviewed one here by Ohio Ordnance. And while they are cheaper and easier to purchase than their full auto counterparts, the high cost for the firearm and the cost of ammo will quickly take its toll on your wallet.

Solutions

Freedom Ordnance has released what they believe to be the solution to this problem, with their FM-9 belt fed upper receivers. You can just take any AR15 or M16 lower that you currently own, and attach their complete upper. You now have a belt fed 9mm in your hands and the world’s largest grin on your face.

Elite Model

At a much cheaper cost of entry and the relatively cheap cost of ammunition, this seems to solve all problems of purchasing and owning a belt fed firearm that previously came with owning something this unique. Additionally, if you choose to purchase the Elite model, or elect to upgrade to it at a later date, you have the ability to quickly change the barrel.

While this may not seem like it would be an important feature, it will save you a lot of time waiting on your barrel to cool off. It will also help to extend your barrel’s life if used properly.

Shoot Slow? Hell NO!

Now let’s just be honest here, you are not going to be shooting this slowly! You will get this in your hands and want to throw ammo downrange as quickly as you can. That’s whole purpose of owning a belt fed; shooting fast and not having to reload every 30 rounds.

New Trigger

If you own a M16 lower or a drop in auto sear, this will be easy. Just thrown it into full auto and enjoy. If you are not fortunate enough to own one of those, don’t worry. This is still fun to shoot in semi auto, but I would recommend looking to purchase a binary trigger or a slide fire stock to simulate the full auto experience.

Quick Linker

The other thing that you will want to look into purchasing would be a quick linker. It is not necessary for the complete firearm to function, but will save you a lot of time and is well worth the investment.

What’s the Cost?

I know what you may be thinking, “this sounds great and all, but what is the catch? There has to be something wrong with it.” Well the price is still a little higher than I would expect at about $1300, but this is still much lower than the other belt fed options. And while Freedom Ordnance website does state that only certain ammunition seems to work well, the 9mm is still a relatively cheap round to fire.

Drawbacks?

The biggest drawback that I have seen for this system, is that when it comes time to purchase a new barrel (unfortunately, shooting fast you will probably go through barrels very quickly) you will have to buy Freedom Ordnance barrels and cannot select one from another manufacturer. This is to be expected, as nobody else has anything like this available. It also ensures that what you are putting on your gun will function as designed.

Head Turning at the Range

For anyone looking for an exciting new toy for the range that is guaranteed to turn heads, I think does the trick. If you can’t afford something like the Ohio Ordnance 1919 or the FNH M249S, I think this is a great alternative. You still get the enjoyment of running a belt fed firearm, but at a much lower cost of ownership. Just throw some form of optic on it, and enjoy.

Matthew and The AAC Ti-Rant 45

AAC Ti-Rant 45

Hey guys, Matthew with Gears of Guns.

Today I want to talk about the AAC Ti-Rant suppressor. I decided to go with this one because of the price point.

Ti-Rant .45

Tax Stamp

At $500 plus the $200 tax stamp, I couldn’t resist. Obviously, I needed the proper form four and a 6 month wait, but then, she was mine.

Multiple Calibers

Overall build quality is very nice. The suppressor looks well made and is made of strong materials. A nice feature I like, is the interchangeable pistons to mount this up to multiple caliber handguns or rifles chambered in a handgun round.

The AAC Ti-Rant also has a fixed barrel spacer for fixed barrels.  You can change the point of impact (POI) by pulling on the suppressor and rotating it.

AAC Piston

Cleanable

This suppressor can be broken down fully to clean the baffles and tube. A really nice feature is that this adds next to no weight to the front of the gun, making it feel pretty well balanced.

Quiet or Quieter

With claims out there that the suppressor runs at 133db dry or 125db wet with 5cc of gel, I think shows how this suppressor works very well.

Why Ti-Rant?

Now some might ask why did you chose the Ti-Rant over say the Osprey from SilencerCo? Simply put, price point. At the time, I couldn’t spend the extra $250 for the Osprey.

Ti-Rant System

Also, the Osprey is nice that it doesn’t block the sights. But the AAC has the ability to change the POI. So you have two features and it boils down to what feature appeals more to you.

A Joy

Overall, a great suppressor and it makes shooting a joy instead of a chore.

Video Tuesday!!! Vltor: The True Stock Options

Today we look at 6 Vltor stocks in Black, FDE/Tan and Foliage Green. Vltor sent the IMOD and the EMOD stocks for us to test on the #WindhamProject.

I love the fact that the EMOD stock has the battery compartment for my CR123s. 

The IMOD stock is smaller so it has less of a foot print in your safe or hard case but still has the beastliness of the EMOD to handle anything you throw at them.  

The #WindhamProject is a Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 AR which is chamber in 5.56, .300BLK, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and .22lr. We have grabbed some of the most awesome parts of the gun industry to help us better customize this rifle and show you how to can turn this rifle from something awesome to something EPIC and drool worthy at the range.
