    Aspiring Wilson fanboy here. Picked this up here but havent had a chance to fire it yet. Fit and finish is top notch. [​IMG]

    The thing about the AR platform is the ability to customize what you what and how you want it. I build my own and always start with great base parts consisting of upper, lower and barrel. After that the sky is the limit as far as buttstocks, handguards, triggers and sights. I never go cheap and put in only quality parts from various manufacturers that are battle proven. From the looks of it Wilson Combat does all that work for you, but at a cost. The only AR-15s I own that I didn't build are my 2 Colt 6920s and they are fine as they are.

    I've got a Wilson AR .556 with a 16 inch barrel that I bought pre-owned from a gun shop at about half price. It has run without a flaw and is the best handling AR I own. Got 4 now. Everyone wants to shoot it at the range to get a feel and they seem to like it. Also own other Wilson products, 45's. I think you should shoot one to see how it feels compared to other builds. JMHO

    Yes magpul. I just bought for this rifle and have not shot with it yet. I like that it swivels and tilts so you can cant the gun slightly.

    Imo Wilson makes some the best ARs on the market. I think on average they a make better AR then they do 1911s.... Big statement I know but the quality and accuracy is there without question.

    Pausing to take a break and kill a Powerade in between phases of putting a temporary reloading bench together....ran across a calendar that I planned to hang on my bench.....laughing at the fact it’s taken me so long to get around to it, the year is almost out, lol.





    Had to stop and admire this month’s cover girl.


    Sexy........

    I would agree that they make a better AR than a 1911.

    Stopping by to say I have used one of their 5.56 barrels previously and it was consistently MOA or less with quality ammo.
