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.

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, fluted, stainless steel premium match-grade barrel – optimized for accuracy with a .223 Wylde chamber and precision target crown. 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.


1:8 Twist: Match or hunting bullets in the 50gr - 77gr range (best all around choice)

Urban Sniper Barrel 2/11/2020
This barrel is AMAZING! Lots of thought and study went into the selection of a barrel for my M4 build. Very happy with my selection of this barrel. It shoots anything you feed it and does so with extreme accuracy. 5 and 10 shot groups are ragged bullet holes. Had a lot of 50-55 grain bullets on the reloading bench shelf. Not to worry, the 1-8 twist handles them well. Love the slightly longer and heavier barrel than the standard AR. It's still a very compact and easy to handle firearm. The rifle length gas port makes for very smooth cycling. Compared to friend's AR platform guns, this one is more accurate and smoother shooting. Paired this barrel with a Wilson Combat Nickel Boron coated BCG and they perform flawlessly together. Am I happy with this barrel? Oh ya! Would put this on another gun? In a heartbeat!

Started off about one inch 5 shot when new.after about 100 shots started shooting 3/4 inch ,5 shot.i think with more break in and better load development it will become a one holer.copper has been and finish is excellent.beautifully crafted barrel.
