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.
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.

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.
(Note From ATF Website)
Q: May a FFL or an individual legally possess the parts to manufacture an SBR or SBS as long as no firearms are actually assembled?
A FFL (Type-7 or Type-10) who pays the Special Occupational Tax (SOT) may possess parts required to assemble NFA firearms. A non-licensee or FFL who has not paid the SOT is required to register any NFA firearm via an ATF Form 1 http://www.atf.gov/files/forms/download/atf-f-5320-1.pdf (5320.1) prior to acquisition of the parts required to assemble such firearm.

|Purchased a barrel with black armor tuff and was pleased with the quality. It was on back order for a couple of weeks during Xmas, so I purchased as soon as it restocked. Only wish is for a fluted option, but otherwise, this is another quality WC part.|

|I have purchased many Wilson Combat barrels for AR builds over the past few years, The fit, finish, and performance has been excellent no matter the caliber or configuration. I bought this barrel for a pistol build, and it has quickly become my favorite. Accuracy and ballistics are impressive. With MK262 77MK factory and reloads it averages sub MOA and 2400 fps. I can consistently hit 5 MOA steel targets to 500 yards with a 3X ACOG.|
