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.  

5.56 NATO

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.

Very Accurate 1/17/2020
On day 1 with one of my pet handloads (60 grain V-Max over 24.8 gr H335 with a CCI mag small rifle primer) this barrel printed a 5 shot 100 yard group EASILY covered with a nickel. That wasn't even bench rested. I fired that off a bipod in the prone position with a cheap Vortex Strikeagle on top for glass. I'll be buying another one of these. At 400 yards I fired roughly 40 rds that day at an 11 inch steel plate and never missed it.
