I hear there are two companies making barrels with the name of Wilson. One is obviously Wilson Combat, but what about the other? Does anyone have info on the second manufacturer? I hear they are poor quality.

A quick check of Troys AR chart shows that Wilson supplies barrels to 5 of the 9 AR makers. I have a DPMS with a Wilson barrel and it is very accurate.

All the the AR's that I have and have had that had Wilson barrels (the second company) shot great and were very accurate. I would say yes, that they do make good barrels.

My RRA Varminter has a Wilson, and I can get .25 moa with 5 shots with handloads. Very accurate, and pretty durable. Over 2k rounds now, and still getting this type of accuracy.

Are you referring to a company called Wilson Arms?

My new RRA 16" Carbine has a Wilson barrel and shoots about 1 MOA with good ammo. ~AbM

Yes, it's [url=wilsonarms.com]Wilson Arms[/url] but is more commonly referred to as simply "Wilson". they make fine barrels. some are target grade but most are simply good or high quality. my preban has a Wilson barrel and it shoots great.

I have to agree with az-ar. Though I just got my RRA Varmint 16 recently, I was astounded by the accuracy with even cheap Winchester USA ammo. (I am working up my first handloads now.) In fact, I am now planning to sell my bolt .22-250 as I won't be using it any more. I don't have experience with other makes, but RRA worked for me. Good luck.
