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.

Got this barrel for a precision build wiit all wilson parts barrel looks amazing with black finish snug fit into wilson matched reciever set will update after finish on accuracy
Top notch barrel for my coyote rig
This barrel was used for an 18" SPR / coyote type rifle. Parts were mostly Wilson. The only non Wilson parts were a KAC URX4 handguard, Noveske gen 1 lower, magpul PRS stock. The gun shoots in the .65 range very consistently. Im sure its capable of better im just not capable, and neither are 98% of shooters. I own a couple high end barrels and custom built rifles and the Wilson barrel doesn't leave me wanting or needing a better quality barrel for my Ar-15 needs.
Super accurate
I bought two of these a while back and can say that they are the finest barrels I have and when I say accurate I mean on the scale of let's say greatness! Especially with black hills 77 grain. It holds your rifle steady and balanced. Plus it looks super nice and has wonderful markings and flutes. The non fluted is also great. Bench and prone shooting this thing shines!
Put this barrel on a new build and it is the most accurate rifle I have ever shot. With handloads I was getting clover leafs at 100 yards with a gritty trigger. WC will definitely be my go to barrel on any future builds.
