Wilson Combat Rifles in .338 Federal

    Wilson Combat

    Wilson Combat announced new AR style rifles that are chambered for the .338 Federal cartridge. The new rifles are similar to many of the AR rifles that Wilson Combat makes from the quality to the pricing.

    These guns start with the company’s own in house machined receivers and add a 14.7″ button rifled, match grade barrel. The barrel has a muzzle device pinned to the end to comply with NFA regs. A buyer may specify the muzzle device used, but the standard one is Accu-Tac flash hider. Standard and fluted barrels are both available. Unloaded, the guns weigh eight pounds with a non-fluted barrel.

    Not surprisingly, Wilson Combat uses its own T.R.I.M. handguard and rail system. A Rogers Super Stoc is mounted on the back end, and a Bravo Company pistol grip fills the shooter’s hand. A four pound Wilson Combat Tactical Trigger Unit (TTU) is also standard.

    The bolt carrier group is NP3 plated. Wilson Combat uses the Armor-Tuff finish on these rifles.

    The base price of the standard rifle is $2,995. Upgrading to a fluted barrel moves the price to $3,045. Other options will further drive up the cost.

    These rifles are just the latest in a string of new guns introduced by the company in recent weeks. Others include the Sentinel Professional 1911 style handgun, the CQB shotgun and a new 9mm carbine.
