Most people know Wilson Combat for their high-end handguns, particularly 1911s. Bill Wilson and his team in Berryville, Arkansas have been putting out highly regarded custom firearms for decades, and today they offer an impressive menu of guns with equally impressive price tags. Even with the hefty cash outlay involved, many shooters assert that these guns are some of the best around and well worth the cost. Wilson Combat does get outside the 1911 world from time to time, and recently released a collaboration with SIG Sauer in the form of a high-end custom variant of the P320. Another non-1911 foray extends to the long gun game, with some AR-15 and PCC offerings. Firearms distributor Davidson’s, known for their exclusive versions of many manufacturer’s guns, offers some Wilson exclusives as well. Now they’ve announced an exclusive model of Wilson Combat’s 5.56 AR, dubbed the PPE, with the following press release.
