Nearly two decades of building the finest custom tactical AR-15 rifles have given us the insight to develop a comprehensive line of stainless steel, match grade barrels that offer superior accuracy, reliability and longevity for your next custom AR rifle project.
All Wilson Combat Match Grade AR-15 barrels are precisely crafted of the finest American-made 416R rifle rated steel on computer controlled equipment to our exacting list of technical specifications. These proven barrels feature a hand-polished bore and feedramps and then complete a rigorous final inspection process that ensures your new barrel will meet your most demanding expectations. All barrels feature crisp CNC markings, precision muzzle crown and a chamber and gas port optimized for reliability.
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.

||Excellent as always
|This barrel was my eight build with Wilson Combat Barrels. Awesome as usual. Fit, finish, and accuracy are exceptional. Just ordered my ninth barrel for an SBR build. Offer a .308 barrel, and Ill have to build an AR10/SR25 rifle.|
||Best Barrel available, sold on Wilson Combat quality!
|I bought this barrel for a build for a rifle I have planned out using the best I could afford to use. I was blown away with the quality and fitment right out of the package. This barrel surpassed my expectations and now I am having a hard time considering anything but a Wilson Barrel for anything I plan to build now! This was my first Wilson barrel, but will not be my last for sure!|
|- Bryan B, NE|
|Very very pleased. I have built a number of ARs but this is my first Wilson barrel. After my first range trip and shooting a 3/8 group using cheap bulk ammo I can say from now on all my builds will be with Wilson. Fit and finish top notch. Ive spent more for other barrels but this one has out preformed them all.|

||Piece of art
|Just installed on my latest build. I shot a variety of Ammo through it 55 grain 62 grain and 77 grain otm. All shot very well through it. I only shot the 77 grain past 200 yards and I couldnt ask for better groups. When I was sighting in the scope It Was nice and tight some rounds going into the same hole. Three shots two holes with about a 1/2 moa which gave me wood. Also had them armor tuff it in black. Simply beautiful!!|
