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, 1/2 x 28 tpi threads and a chamber and gas port optimized for reliability.
.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 Super Sniper Profile Barrels
There are times when extreme accuracy and rapid follow-up shots are the most important criteria when selecting a rifle. Those were the primary objectives of the engineers at Wilson Combat® when they designed the Super Sniper-- and the result far exceeded our expectations. It has a long, heavy-weight, stainless steel premium match-grade barrel-- optimized for accuracy with the longer, heavier bullets frequently used for longer range shooting. The Super Sniper is engineered, designed, and built to deliver unmatched accuract and it does in an almost unbelievable fashion.

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.

|1/4 MOA - 0.25 Groups at 100 yards||3/18/2021|
|Wilson Combat shows roughly .25" groupings in their advertisements and I thought well maybe under special conditions some of their barrels would do this, being skeptical. I was able to replicate that result once or twice on my first day of shooting my new barrel and gun during one windy Colorado day when the wind settled, I did manage, once or twice, a three shot 0.25 MOA bullet overlapping group with the WC SS 20" 223 Wylde Barrel using Federal M193 55gr bullets (Chrono FPS 2982), Geissele SD-E trigger (2 stage), Primary Arms (PA) 3-18x50 and a Caldwell lead sled. The PA scope with 0.1 MIL adjustments and 18 power helped a lot. Granted with the wind and the cheap ammo there were a lot of 'flyers'. I am still impressed.|

|super accurate super sniper barrel||7/17/2020|
|i ordered the 20" super sniper barrel, fluted and threaded for a suppressor. i had it coated in black armor-tuff. this barrel was installed on my DPMS lower by my local gunsmith, it also has a 2 stage trigger. just came back from the range where i sighted it in at 200 yards using factory .223 ammo / federal 53 grain varmint loaded with Hornady v-max bullet. i paid 9.99 for this ammo on sale the results are freaking insane, absolutely stunning, i shot a 1/2 inch group at 200 yards using a bipod on the front and a sand bag for the rear. this barrel is freaking magical. every law enforcement agency should own several of these Wilson sniper rifles. this barrel is this awesome on a dpms lower, can you imagine how much more accurate the entire wilson super sniper rifle is...OMG, I want one :)|
