Detailed Description


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. 

.223 Wylde

.223 Wylde is a hybrid .223/5.56 chamber designed by Bill Wylde to yield the accuracy advantages of the match .223 Remington commercial chambering but without pressure or reliability failures when using high velocity 5.56 NATO spec ammunition. The .223 Wylde achieves better accuracy by having a chamber throat that is tighter than 5.56 but will still function reliably with military 5.56 ammunition as the case dimensions are the same.

Wilson Combat Urban Super Sniper Profile Barrels

The Urban Super Sniper has the same impressive accuracy in a more portable package better suited for the practical or tactical shooter.  The Urban Super Sniper has 18” long, 1-in-8 twist, medium heavy-weight, stainless steel premium match-grade barrel – optimized for accuracy with a .223 Wylde chamber. The barrel twist is suited for longer, heavier bullets frequently used for longer range shooting. The medium/heavy barrel profile we developed for this barrel shaves more than 20 ounces of weight off the standard Super Sniper barrel.  The end result is a tactical rifle that is a pleasure to operate with the same impressive accuracy and reliability that its predecessor is noted for.

Wilson Combat AR Barrel Service Policy

Because of the nature of the AR parts business and varying pressures of commerically available ammunition, Wilson Combat cannot guarantee function in customer built AR rifles.  We recommend all components be installed by a competent rifle-smith.

If you assemble a firearm with Wilson Combat components and it fails to function, you first need to check the fit of the barrel to the gas block and the overall condition of your rifle's gas system/bolt carrier group to ensure your system isn't leaking gas.  As buffers and springs play a role in overall reliability, the use of an aftermarket style buffer system is not recommended.  When using an adjustable gas block, reliability is best achieved at the fully open setting without any gas port restriction. 

Wilson Combat will not troubleshoot customer built firearms/uppers.

If you feel a Wilson Combat component is defective, please return the component only to us using our Return Form.  Shipping to Wilson Combat is the responsibility of the consumer.

Put this barrel on my Daniel Defense M4 V11 Pro. The accuracy is a improvement over the cold forged Daniel Defense barrel which was already very good. Excellent fit and finish.
High Quality, Accurate Barrel with Customer Service to Match
Just finally got around to reviewing this due to fully testing this barrel out in my rifle. Due to New York's restrictive gun laws, specifically the Safe Act, finding a featureless barrel (one without muzzle threading) is a very difficult and arduous process. After researching for some time (and almost giving up), I found Wilson Combat and bought this .223 Wylde barrel with black armor tuff coating - I couldn't be more happier with this purchase! Initially, when I first received the barrel, I checked its headspace and found it failed the .223 REM GO Gauge and just slightly passed the 5.56 NATO GO Gauge (rubbed up against the inner barrel lugs - Tolerance Stacking issues). So, I opened a service request and one of the reps (Jason T.) offered to hand ream the chamber for my bolt at no extra charge (aside from the shipping cost of $30; they would handle the shipping back). Sent the barrel in, waited about a week, and got it back. Lo and behold it passed both the .223 REM and 5.56 NATO headspace tests! Once I got everything installed and zeroed it out at the range (30 yards), it hits dead on target with about half-inch groupings. I'll need to find some time to go out to 100 yards to test this further, but I'm pretty satisfied with how my build turned out. If I could rate this barrel higher than a 5, I would; both for the quality of the barrel and its customer service that follows it. Would I buy another 18in barrel and/or the 20in barrel if I did another build? Without hesitation.
Just buy it
Honestly, just buy it. Stop thinking and go with it, you'll be happy.
Urban Sniper Barrel
This barrel is AMAZING! Lots of thought and study went into the selection of a barrel for my M4 build. Very happy with my selection of this barrel. It shoots anything you feed it and does so with extreme accuracy. 5 and 10 shot groups are ragged bullet holes. Had a lot of 50-55 grain bullets on the reloading bench shelf. Not to worry, the 1-8 twist handles them well. Love the slightly longer and heavier barrel than the standard AR. It's still a very compact and easy to handle firearm. The rifle length gas port makes for very smooth cycling. Compared to friend's AR platform guns, this one is more accurate and smoother shooting. Paired this barrel with a Wilson Combat Nickel Boron coated BCG and they perform flawlessly together. Am I happy with this barrel? Oh ya! Would put this on another gun? In a heartbeat!
Good barrel
Started off about one inch 5 shot when new.after about 100 shots started shooting 3/4 inch ,5 shot.i think with more break in and better load development it will become a one holer.copper has been and finish is excellent.beautifully crafted barrel.
