Video: Ritter and Stark

Ritter and Stark SX-1

I like this rifle. I have been in contact with Ritter and Stark and I have told them I want to see this rifle in the American market because of how awesome it is!

I am on a caliber conversion kick right now with the #WindhamProject, so the Ritter & Stark: SX-1 MTR Modular Tactical Rifle has really tickled my fancy.

This promo video below is making me drool.

This is just a thought of mine and not something I have talked about with them but it would be cool to see a platform like this that runs the .308, .300 Win Mag and the .338 Lapua but has the ability to be upgraded to .50BMG or .408 Cheytac. (The Ritter and Stark SX-1 does not do this)

On the July 4th I had posted my Independence Day/Patriotic themed Cool Guns of the Internet which featured a snazzy looking .22lr similar to this one. I wish I had the specs or the info on mine but nonetheless these rifles are cool.

Quick #WindhamProject Update

While looking for 5.56/.223 Bolt Carrier Groups (BCG) for the #WindhamProject I looked into replacing Windham Weaponry’s all black BCG with a Nickel Boron coated BCG from a few different manufacturers.  I found WMD Guns and after a few months of finalizing a new coating they sent us one.

A New Coating

The new coating, as I understand it, is a double plating of Nickel Boron (NiB). The bottom plating is the standard silvery Nib with a top plating of a NiB-X Black.  The NiB-X Black is 40% more wear-resistant than chrome (wear rating from the description sent with the product from WMD Guns).

Thoughts? 

I don’t want to give any thoughts outside of the look since I haven’t had it in my hands until last week. I will say that it is a cool looking BCG.

Style of Choice

The bolt carrier group is a full auto bolt. This is my style of choice, only because the weight slows the BCG down on semi auto.  This insures better extraction with my cheap steel cased ammo.bolt_carriers_1bolt_carriers_bottom

The Real Reason

My biggest reason for the BCG change is the fact that the Windham 7.62×39 and 5.56 BCGs are both black.  This makes it harder to distinguish in low light or with someone who has never used the rifle before.
