Wilson Combat Barrel

Post by flyinreallyhigh » Wed Oct 12, 2011 6:21 pm

Didn't see anyone else review their stuff so I thought I would

I ordered the 16" carbine Stainless barrel, came fast and was packed very well.

It shoots very well, easily 1 moa accuracy out of it so far, I haven't gotten to test it out over 100 yds yet but this is a deer rifle so, it will rarely see over that.

Glad to hear your barrel shoots well. I built an upper around one of their 11.3" barrels, but I haven't had a chance to shoot it (waiting for Form 1 for my SBR to come back). I'm going to start a thread and post some pictures of the upper.

I just ordered Wilson's Combat Match Grade Barrel fluted stainless barrel. I opted for the 18" version and I need some opinions on aluminum hand-guards, I'm thinking 12" long, gas block, and gas tube...

I went with Fortis Mfg rails because of their weight (and they were aesthetically pleasing). They come in at just over 9 ounce for a 12'' rail which is amazing. I went with a 14'' and it just seemed like it couldn't be as light as it really was, but seems very sturdy. Happy with it so far. http://tradingplacepawn.com/fortis-rev- ... ystem.html

That's an understatement!!! I've never received a package that was packed as well as my bbl. Obviously they care and when you're paying $250+ it's nice to see that the company wants to ensure you get what you're paying for. +1 to Wilson

I also have a Wilson Combat 18". Didn't have the fluted one in stock so I went with the unfluted one. Little heavier but not much. I put a YHM rifle length Diamond Series Quad rail on mine. Just liked the way it looked. Probably makes the rifle a little front heavy but It will be used off a bench and for deer hunting.

I agree Wilson barrels shoot very well. I shot a 217 AQT with a Wilson Combat 300BLK Tactical Lightweight... a 16", 1-8 twist, 29 oz. barrel. You can find the review and report from 2011 here:

I have the 16" fluted SS with 1-8 and love it. Looks good, shoots sub moa. First three shots with one load I made up went .90". Only shot about 100 rounds so far. Other loads were between 1.25 to 1.10" or so. I'll load a bit hotter and I believe accuracy will increase.

These barrel are packed in a clear tube with rubber caps on both ends of the barrel and the tube. I have another new in the tube just like this but without flutes in case anyone wants one.

I've got one of their 11.3 uppers. Coated BCG ,nice comfortable rail,gas buster charging handle.
Have put 500+ rounds through it so far without a malfunction. Absolutely no complaints.
