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.

6.5 Grendel

The 6.5 Grendel is a low recoil long range cartridge designed specifically for the AR-15 platform noted for impressive ballistics using .264 caliber bullets to make accurate shots out to 1,000 yards.  The 6.5 Grendel uses a unique bolt and caliber specific magazine to convert any standard AR. With a wide variety of available factory ammunition, the 6.5 Grendel is a top choice for hunting medium game or extended range target shooting. Wilson Combat barrels use the industry standard "Type-2" Grendel bolt with .136" bolt face counterbore.

Wilson Combat Recon Tactical Profile Barrels

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.

Wilson Combat AR Barrel Service Policy

Because of the nature of the AR parts business and varying pressures of commerically avaiable 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.

20” 6.5 grendel recon tactical
I’m not sure which is better, this barrel or WC’s customer service. Both are top notch. Gas port is perfectly sized, smooth shooter (running a JP polished spring and T2 powdered tungsten buffer). Bolt is a maxim installed into a WC NP3 carrier. Tested 60 factory hornady loads, American gunner 123 gr bthp and hornady black 123 eld match. Worst group was 1 MOA, best group was .44 MOA with factory ammunition! For the relatively light weight of this barrel, I am very impressed with the accuracy. Barrel break in was simple, bore is so smooth, perfectly polished. Ready to stretch its legs to 600-1000 yards. You cannot go wrong with this barrel! I am seriously tempted to try out the 22” 6.5 grendel super sniper once it’s back in stock. Keep up the great job WC, you have a customer for life here.
Exceeded expectations
Used this barrel with a rifle lower. MOE stock, Geissle SD-2 and super 42 spring. Perfect function with and without suppressor. Leupold 2.5x10 scope in inexpensive mount. Love the feel and balance of rifle. Barrel looks great. With exception of factory Horn 123gr SST (3" 5 shot groups)rifle shoots everything under 1 MOA so far. That bullet shoots great in every handload I tried. Barrel isn't temperamental at all. Shoot it clean, dirty, hot or cold. Wilson customer service is excellent. Will build the same set up in 300 HAM'R . The 6.5 deserves a major scope upgrade for target work.
bought this barrel, super fast on shipping the barrel was super nice and clean cut built rifle took to the range and she drives tacks would recommend this barrel to others bought a 300 blackout thats great and getting ready to buy a 6.5 creedmoor
