The Recon Tactical is our vision of what a practical, all-around medium profile AR barrel for rigorous tactical training, hardcore hunting or all-purpose field applications should be. The Recon can do it all-very well. Fluted barrel model reduce weight even further and increases stiffness to the barrel for no loss in practical accuracy.
5.56 NATO was developed in the United States and initially chambered in the M16 rifle. It is the standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. It is derived from, but not identical to, the .223 Remington cartridge. We use a NATO, mil-spec chamber in our barrels that is reliable and safe to fire both 5.56 and .223 Remington rounds. This common and easy-to shoot cartridge is ideal for defense, training and small-medium game hunting.

||Tried several others - none better than this one
|After getting burned by other dealers, I bought this barrel on the recommendation of a friend. I have been getting consistently tighter groups at 100 yards with 55 grain ball ammo than I could have hoped for. I couldnt be happier with this barrel.|

|Bought this Barrel for a rifle build and couldnt be happier with it. The 1-9 twist is perfect for 55 grain bullets and lower so its works well with small varmint rounds.|

||Not just 1911s
|Ive always thought that Wilson Combat was just a 1911 shop, but I was wrong, I took a chance on this barrel for 2 reasons, 1 - if it is anywhere near the quality of a Wilson Combat 1911, it will be worth it. 2 - Price, I couldnt see spending $500 on a Noveske barrel and the difference would probably be minimal from my perspective. After receiving the barrel, I was VERY impressed, the craftsmanship was amazing! The contour and fluting was excellent. The barrel was also dimpled which made lining up the gas block VERY EASY. After installing this barrel in my AR. I went to the range and was blown away by the accuracy, easy sub-moa groups at 100 yards. All in all you cannot go wrong here, if you are in the market for a high end AR barrel, look no further.|
