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.

The Wilson Combat Hunter profile AR barrels are the ideal profile to turn your large caliber rifle into the ultimate hunting firearm.  Our hand-inspected and gauged match-grade stainless blanks have been profiled and fluted for ideal weight, balance, and harmonics.  The Hunter barrel is the optimum weight for carrying a rifle all day in the field without sacrificing precision.

6.5 Grendel

The 6.5 Grendel is a low recoil long range cartridge designed specifically for the AR-15 platform noted for impressive ballistics using .264 caliber bullets to make accurate shots out to 1,000 yards.  The 6.5 Grendel uses a unique bolt and caliber specific magazine to convert any standard AR. With a wide variety of available factory ammunition, the 6.5 Grendel is a top choice for hunting medium game or extended range target shooting. Wilson Combat barrels are chambered according to SAAMI specifications and use the industry standard "Type-2" Grendel bolt with .136" bolt face counterbore.

20” 6.5 grendel recon tactical 2/9/2020
I’m not sure which is better, this barrel or WC’s customer service. Both are top notch. Gas port is perfectly sized, smooth shooter (running a JP polished spring and T2 powdered tungsten buffer). Bolt is a maxim installed into a WC NP3 carrier. Tested 60 factory hornady loads, American gunner 123 gr bthp and hornady black 123 eld match. Worst group was 1 MOA, best group was .44 MOA with factory ammunition! For the relatively light weight of this barrel, I am very impressed with the accuracy. Barrel break in was simple, bore is so smooth, perfectly polished. Ready to stretch its legs to 600-1000 yards. You cannot go wrong with this barrel! I am seriously tempted to try out the 22” 6.5 grendel super sniper once it’s back in stock. Keep up the great job WC, you have a customer for life here.

Exceeded expectations 11/20/2019
Used this barrel with a rifle lower. MOE stock, Geissle SD-2 and super 42 spring. Perfect function with and without suppressor. Leupold 2.5x10 scope in inexpensive mount. Love the feel and balance of rifle. Barrel looks great. With exception of factory Horn 123gr SST (3" 5 shot groups)rifle shoots everything under 1 MOA so far. That bullet shoots great in every handload I tried. Barrel isn't temperamental at all. Shoot it clean, dirty, hot or cold. Wilson customer service is excellent. Will build the same set up in 300 HAM'R . The 6.5 deserves a major scope upgrade for target work.
