Windham Weaponry will be unveiling its new RMCS offerings next week at SHOT Show 2016. I’ve added them to my list of booths to visit, but the short story is one AR-pattern lower receiver with swappable magwells, and a quick-change barrel system in the upper receiver. Kits are offered with all of the parts needed to rapidly swap between two (.223 and .300 BLK), three (.223, .300 BLK, and 7.62×39), or four (.223, .300 BLK, 7.62×39, and 9×19) calibers. I assume caliber conversions will be available separately for people who start with a two-caliber kit and want to expand later, but that isn’t mentioned the following press release and product video . . .
