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.
5.56 NATO was developed in the United States and initially chambered in the M16 rifle. It is the standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. It is derived from, but not identical to, the .223 Remington cartridge. We use a NATO, mil-spec chamber in our barrels that is reliable and safe to fire both 5.56 and .223 Remington rounds. This common and easy-to shoot cartridge is ideal for defense, training and small-medium game hunting.

Wilson Combat AR Barrel Service Policy
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)
If you return a barrel for accuracy issues and we determine the barrel shoots within our specifications, Wilson Combat Custom Shop rates for troubleshooting will apply. If you return a barrel for possible headspace issues and upon inspection, the barrel is found to be within Wilson Combat specifications, Wilson Combat Custom Shop rates for troubleshooting will apply. (see below)
NOTE: Always have a competent gunsmith/armorer assemble your upper and headspace your barrel before first use.
Wilson Combat Custom Shop Troubleshooting Rates:
$75.00 per hour labor charge
$50.00 headspace verification
$1.00 per round test fire
