Windham Weaponry Varmint Exterminator Rifles

    VEX rifle

    At the 2014 SHOT Show, Windham Weaponry introduced the VEX (Varmint Exterminator) Wood Stock line of rifles.  These rifles are designed for long distance accuracy and come with laminated wood furniture.

    The Pepper is the first in the series.  It uses the same 20″ stainless steel barrel and matched bolts that are found in the existing VEX series of rifles.  The Pepper swaps out the modern looking furniture for a light and dark gray set of wood furniture for a more traditional hunting look.

    The guns are gas impingement guns and run the same as pretty much the same as any AR-15.  The guns ship with a five round magazine, but will accept any standard mags.

    • weight:  8.35 pounds (without magazine)
