Wilson Combat has introduced a new finish for their firearms called Combat-Tuff. It is essentially a two stage Armor-Tuff finish, which allows reaching that distressed, well-used look.
The application process involves multiple coats of their Armor-Tuff spray-on coating followed by a special hand finishing process. The finishes are available for their custom rifles, shotguns and 1911 pistols. Each finish is actually a combination of two colors. Wilson Combat offers seven such color combinations, which are called accordingly.
They offer three in-stock AR-15 style rifles with Silver/Green, Burnt Bronze/Black or White/Black versions of Combat-Tuff finish. However, only the Silver/Green finished version of their Urban Sniper Rifle (in .223 Wylde) is available right now on their website. The MSRP of the mentioned rifle is $2584,95 (Item Number: RIFLE836).
For pricing and availability of Combat-Tuff finish for other Wilson Combat rifles, shotguns or 1911s you need to contact them. You can find higher resolution images of the AR-15 upper/lower sets with Combat-Tuff finish by clicking right here.
I think this kind of distressed finish has no practical use and doesn’t give any mechanical advantage, however, it is an absolutely gorgeous finish. The aesthetic look of such worn finish is amazing. Although the worn finish is nothing new to AR-15 market, it wasn’t available before with Wilson Combat Armor-Tuff finish.
