I'm needing a little help with an upper I picked up at a funshow. The guy said it's a Wilson. However, per the pics on their site, the muzzle brake doesn't match. Any help is greatly appreciated. It shoots fine, 1.5"-2" w/Q3131a, and no jamming (since I added a heavy buffer). With the price I paid, I'm not hurt. I'm just kind of curious.

Details:
14.5" barrel w/perm muzzle brake
FSB is marked F (RI) 1 [RI is in a circle]
the barrel is a M4 profile and lite under the handguards
there are no markings on the barrel, but the first 3"-4" are polished blue instead of matte

Pics added. Thanks in advance for the help.

He probably tried to have you believe it was a Wilson Combat...it's not. Wilson Arms produces the barrels for RRA. That looks like it was a RRA HBAR M4 barrel, that someone had turned down under the handguards and looks like it has a KKF long A2 flash suppressor on it.

It's not a Wilson Combat, but don't worry, unless you paid a bunch, you didn't get hosed and this should be a fine upper.

Outstanding guys. Thanks for the help. I picked it up for $225 without b/bc/ch, and it shoots fine so I'm happy. This was part of my first AR. I was trying to put one together on the cheap for a patrol rifle. Once I figured out that it needed a "h" buffer to cycle properly, I've been very happy with it. Thanks again for the help.
