Because of the nature of the AR parts business and varying pressures of commercially available ammunition, Wilson Combat cannot guarantee function with a Wilson Combat AR barrel in your firearm build using core parts other than Wilson Combat branded parts (barrel, gas block/tube, bolt carrier group).
If you assemble a firearm with a Wilson Combat AR barrel 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 only guaranteed at the fully open setting without any gas port constriction. If you would like our gunsmiths to troubleshoot your AR build using a Wilson Combat barrel, Wilson Combat Custom Shop rates for troubleshooting will apply. (see below)
