Wilson Combat Super Sniper Rifle Barrel 6.5 Creedmoor TR-65CSSRG24FT8

Wilson Combat Super Sniper Rifle Barrel 6.5 Creedmoor (.308 AR) TR-65CSSRG24FT8

The long-range shooting world is dominated by rifles chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, and competitors, hunters, and long-range shooters alike are looking for every advantage at extended distances. The Wilson Combat 6.5 Creedmoor Super Sniper Barrel is one product designed to provide increased capabilities.

Each match-grade AR barrel in the company’s lineup is machined from 416R stainless steel, and the Wilson Combat 6.5 Creedmoor Super Sniper Barrel is no exception. However, this particular barrel features several elements that are optimized for long-range performance. The design is optimized for longer, heavier-weight projectiles used to push the limits of the 6.5 Creedmoor round.

1:8-inch twist rate, M4-style feed ramps, 5/8×24 threaded muzzle, Weight: 63 ounces

Available from Brownells and Primary Arms

Additionally, each Wilson Combat 6.5 Creedmoor Super Sniper Barrel is built with a rifle-length gas system. It is purpose-built to deliver a level of match-grade accuracy not seen before in AR 308-size rifles.

Manufacturers Info: Wilson Combat Super Sniper Rifle Barrel 6.5 Creedmoor (.308 AR) TR-65CSSRG24FT8

Nearly two decades of building the finest custom tactical AR rifles have given us the insight to develop a comprehensive line of stainless steel, match-grade barrels that offer superior accuracy, reliability, and longevity for your next custom AR rifle project.

All Wilson Combat Match Grade AR barrels are precisely crafted of the finest American-made 416R rifle-rated steel on computer-controlled equipment to our exacting list of technical specifications. These proven barrels feature a hand-polished bore and feedramps and then complete a rigorous final inspection process that ensures your new barrel will meet your most demanding expectations. All barrels feature crisp CNC markings, precision muzzle crown, and a chamber and gas port optimized for reliability.

6.5 Creedmoor

The 6.5 Creedmoor is a top choice for precision rifle competitors and hunters looking for the optimum AR-based extended-range cartridge. It makes ultra-long-range shooting an easy proposition and offers similar long-range trajectories to a .300 Winchester Magnum with less felt recoil than a comparable .308 rifle. The high ballistic coefficient bullets loaded in the 6.5 caliber make this downrange performance possible because they have less wind drift and more retained energy than a comparable .30 caliber bullet at 1000 yards. When seeking the best extended-range shooting or hunting performance in an AR platform rifle, the 6.5 Creedmoor is the logical choice. With a wide variety of quality factory ammunition available and .308 AR magazine and receiver compatibility, the 6.5 Creedmoor is in a performance class by itself.

Wilson Combat Super Sniper Profile Barrels

There are times when extreme accuracy and rapid follow-up shots are the most important criteria when selecting a rifle. Those were the primary objectives of the engineers at Wilson Combat® when they designed the Super Sniper– and the result far exceeded our expectations. It has a long, heavy-weight, stainless steel premium match-grade barrel– optimized for accuracy with the longer, heavier bullets frequently used for longer-range shooting. The Super Sniper is engineered, designed, and built to deliver unmatched accuracy, and it does in an almost unbelievable fashion.

Wilson Combat AR Barrel Service Policy

Because of the nature of the AR parts business and varying pressures of commercially available ammunition, Wilson Combat cannot guarantee function in customer-built AR rifles. We recommend a competent rifle-smith install all components.

If you assemble a firearm with Wilson Combat components and it fails to function, you first need to check the fit of the barrel to the gas block and the overall condition of your rifle’s gas system/bolt carrier group to ensure your system isn’t leaking gas. As buffers and springs play a role in overall reliability, the use of an aftermarket-style buffer system is not recommended. When using an adjustable gas block, reliability is best achieved at the fully open setting without any gas port restriction.

Wilson Combat will not troubleshoot customer-built firearms/uppers.

American Defense Manufacturing AD Recon-S Scope Mount

AD Recon-S Scope Mount

For a few years, the American Defense Manufacturing AD-RECON series of scope mounts have been my “Best Value” recommendation for QD AR mounts. For me, the AD Recon lineup represents the line where cost and performance converge. The AD Recon is one of the best values in one-piece mounts.

The American Defense Manufacturing AD-RECON-S Scope Mount is made for putting high-power glass onto a flattop style AR-10, Bolt Action Rifle, and Lever Action Rifles. This mount is best suited for the AR-10 platform or Bolt Action Rifles that are in a chassis system with a full-length handguard covering the barrel. This mount will work with up to and including 56mm Objective Lenses.

The AD-RECON-S is a straight-up scope mount with no eye relief built-in. It is precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and finished in hard coat T3 Mil-Spec anodize. It features the Patented QD Auto Lock Lever system to accommodate both in-spec and out-of-spec rail systems. Available in 30mm and 34mm rings and either Black or Flat Dark Earth and either no MOA, 20MOA, or 30MOA built-in.

AD Recon-S Scope Mount

From American Defense Manufacturing

Quick-release lever-lock system clamps solidly to flattop rail and will not work loose even under heavy recoil—the more force acting on the lever, the tighter it locks. Depress the release tab to swing the lever open, and the mount easily lifts off the rifle. Adjustable with a flat head screwdriver or even a coin for an ultra-secure, no-slip fit on almost any Picatinny or Weaver-style rail, including over-or under-sized commercial rails. The lever may be configured to lock to the front or the rear to suit the operator’s preference.

A large locking bar on the side of the mount engages the maximum amount of rail area, while the cross-bolt and two integral locking lugs ensure rock-solid engagement of rail slots to prevent movement under recoil. Five heavy-duty steel hex head screws (three on top, two on bottom) clamp the vertically split ring halves together. Cutouts in the ring sides and in the base reduce weight without sacrificing strength. Quick-Release Scope Mount one-piece base with the dual-lever system provides the same solid mounting and fast removal and reattachment.

308 AR Integrated Folding Lower Receiver 17 Design

17 DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING AR-308 INTEGRATED FOLDING LOWER RECEIVER

17 Design Integrated Folding Lower Receiver

Introducing the Brownells exclusive 17 Design & Manufacturing  IFLR-10 (Integrated Folding Lower Receiver). The 17 Design & Manufacturing  IFLR-10 Stripped Lower Receiver is the perfect base for your AR 308 build.  The IFLR-10 has a folding stock mechanism machined directly into the AR lower receiver.

 All wearable parts are manufactured from S7 tool steel, which leads to extreme wear resistance, and corrosion-resistant coatings ensure your IFLR stays mint for years to come.

Available from Brownells

Additional Features:

  • Upper tensioning screw- allows user to fine-tune the fit of the upper and lower through the use of a nylon tipped tensioning set screw in the grip tang of the receiver.
  • Flared magwell angle- Wider angles in the magwell allow a more flared feel without increasing the width/footprint of the lower receiver.
  • Features a threaded bolt catch pin.
  • Comes with Specialty H1 Buffer, nylon tipped set screw, and assembled IFLR in stripped lower configuration ready for your custom build.

17 Design 308 AR Integrated Folding Lower Receiver

From the Manufacturer:

The patented Integrated Folding Lower Receiver was an idea floated several years back by a friend of 17 Design & Mfg, who would become the CEO of Shield Arms. We recently brought this idea back to life in a joint project as a submission and down-selected submission for the US Army’s Sub Compact Weapon System solicitation. While integrating a folding mechanism into the standard operating system of the AR-pattern rifle is far from simple, our extensive knowledge of manufacturing and engineering allowed for a high production, repeatable, first-of-its-kind product that will shape the AR market for years to come.

Triggertech AR-10 Diamond Trigger (308 AR)

TriggerTech’s AR .308 Diamond Trigger is an enhanced design that allows you to take advantage of revolutionary new technology and gives you the flexibility to choose exactly what kind of trigger shoe works best for your shooting style. This trigger is available in Curved, Straight, and Pro Curved models, all designed to enhance your shooting skills and give you a more accurate, precise rifle platform.

Available from Palmetto State Armory, Brownells, Optics Planet

Triggertech AR-10 Diamond Trigger (308 AR)

In addition to the incredibly short 0.015-inch reset point, the TriggerTech .308 Diamond Trigger is also user-adjustable, so you can dial in your trigger-pull weight in two-ounce increments from 2.5 to 5 pounds, giving you the exact feel you want. The trigger housing is constructed from hard-anodized 7075 aluminum, and all the internal components are crafted from 440C stainless steel. The trigger is designed for AR .308 rifles, but it will fit any receiver built with mil-spec 0.154-inch pinholes.

The most important benefit offered by the TriggerTech AR .308 Diamond Trigger is its construction. Thanks to the incredibly innovative Frictionless Release Technology incorporated into the design, there are no contact surfaces that need polishing or lubrication, and there’s no wear that will gradually change your trigger-pull weight and feel over time. No matter whether you pull your trigger 1,000 or 10,000 times, it’ll remain consistent from shot to shot.

Intended Use

Long-range, competition, precision shooting, harsh environments, law enforcement, military, target shooting.

Full Description

Our AR10 Triggers are built for top competitive shooters to offer the most accurate and dependable trigger on the market. Featuring Frictionless Release Technology™, this drop-in AR trigger has a short, two-stage action, designed to feel like a 1911 trigger, that provides a true zero-creep break, extremely short overtravel, a sub 0.015” tactical reset and offers outstanding reliability, even in the harshest environments. Utilizing CLKR Technology™, the pull weight is quickly and confidently adjusted in 2oz increments from a set screw with the trigger installed. Due to there being truly zero creep, most shooters report the pull weights feeling ~0.5lbs lighter than a friction-based trigger of the same measured pull weight.

Changing the pull weight does not affect hammer force so you get dependable primer strikes at every weight. Frictionless Release Technology™, along with hardened 440C stainless steel internal components ensures corrosion resistance and extended service life. As Frictionless Release Technology™ does not rely on coating, polishing, or lubricating the key engagement surfaces, trigger pulls will be more consistent from shot to shot and after thousands of shots than you ever thought possible.

All pull weights and measurements are approximate.

The installation guide is directed to experienced professional gunsmiths who understand the workings of their AR rifle and know how to fully detail strip the lower receiver. If you do not have these skills, we strongly suggest you retain the services of a competent professional gunsmith to install your trigger, and perform all important safety checks.

American Trigger Corp AR Gold AR 308 Adjustable Trigger

American Trigger Corp AR Gold 308 AR Adjustable Trigger

The American Trigger Corp AR Gold 308 AR Adjustable Trigger is a Self-contained trigger assembly that installs in minutes and delivers a light, smooth, match-grade trigger pull free of grittiness, with an ultra-crisp letoff and short reset. Simply remove the factory trigger and safety selector, drop in the module, reinstall the selector and pins, and you’re ready to shoot. Completely new engagement geometry produces a light 3-lb. pull and crisp release without compromising reliability or safety. The two-stage design is adjustable for sear engagement, with a first-stage takeup of approximately 6 ounces, followed by actual sear movement taking up the rest of the weight—the reverse of the military two-stage AR trigger pull profile. Instead, the shooter can build force steadily, maintaining precise control and keeping his attention on the target.

Pact ATC AR Gold 308 AR Adjustable Trigger

Drop-In Fire Control System Gives A Light, Safe, Match-Grade Pull

After release, reset travel is only .030″, less than half the .070″ typical of standard match triggers, to aid in fast, accurate follow-up shots. The sear captures the hammer at the back instead of near the pivot point to help produce the light pull and maintain safety. A second, independent, intercepting sear is positioned to block the hammer if it slips off the primary sear, as when the weapon is dropped or suffers a hard impact. If the intercepting sear captures the hammer, pulling the trigger will still fire the rifle with a heavier pull weight. In addition, the Gold system uses the rifle’s factory safety to positively capture the hammer, like an M1 Garand, and roll it back below the primary sear for an extra margin of safety. A lightweight aluminum housing contains the entire system and maintains the correct tolerances between the working parts. The receiver pins serve only to anchor the module in the receiver, with no effect on the trigger function.

  • 3.5 lbs. (Adjustable Weight)
  • Drop Safe
  • Drop-In Module (easy installation)

Each Cry Havoc Takedown Kit contains complete instructions and all parts to convert your rifle or without drilling or any permanent modifications. Although they recommend installation be done by a Gunsmith, if you can install a barrel on an upper receiver, you can install this kit.

The QRB main body is Hard Anodized Aluminum and the Stainless-Steel hooks, levers, star nut, and gas extension are finished in Black Nitride for maximum durability.

Available from Brownells

Once the QRB Kit is installed, it is amazingly quick to assemble your rifle or pistol without the worry of damaging your gas tube. The operator would simply lock the bolt back, insert the barrel extension into the receiver, rotate the barrel until the alignment pin enters the alignment hole, and then seat the barrel in place. Next, hook the two clips on the receiver plate and engage the levers to the closed position, never taking your hand off the pistol grip. Nothing to depress! Just drop the bolt and you are ready to fire… All in less than 6 seconds!

To remove the barrel assembly for storage, first, remove the magazine, lock the bolt back, check for an empty chamber, pull levers away from the handguard, remove hooks from the receiver plate and pull the barrel away from the receiver. Just that simple. No barrel rattling around in the handguard or gloves needed! Make sure to check out the videos in the Media Tab to see these steps happen in real-time. You will be amazed.
