Windsor Arms Co. is a Class 3 manufacturer that takes good guns, and makes them better. In this case, they took a semi-automatic Palmetto State Armory PA-10 and turned it into a select-fire machine gun capable of firing approximately 800 rounds per minute.
“You don’t want a higher rate of fire out of a box fed magazine because it will out-run the magazine,” said LaMarche.
They gun ran flawlessly at the shoot. If you watch it in slow motion in the video, it’s extremely solid as it throws 150-grain bullets at 2,820 feet per second. A very efficient muzzle break allows the rifle to be extremely controllable.
Windsor Arms added some Magpul furniture and shortened the barrel. It got a lot of attention at the machine gun shoot in July.
“It’s one of our crowd pleasers,” said LaMarche. “This thing is really loud and has a lot of concussion. Everyone stops what they’re doing when we start shooting.”
Windsor Arms Co. is located in nearby Windsor and manufactures, fixes and modifies guns.
