Sometimes the simpler the better and that appears to be the case with the new Wilson Combat Q-Comp. Usually when you hear the name “Wilson Combat” you instantly think of their $2,500 rifles or $3,500+ handguns but in their Q-Comp throws all that aside and not only is a simple product but a very effective and affordable one too. 

The Wilson Combat Q-Comp has been designed by our compensator experts to greatly enhance recoil control in rapid fire without the harsh blast and flash that other AR-15 muzzle devices exhibit.

The Q-Comp is a hybrid AR-15 brake/compensator that has been tuned to minimize side-blast and concussion compared to other muzzle devices on the market. This exclusive Wilson Combat design displays almost zero muzzle flash yet retains excellent vertical and rearward recoil reduction with all calibers.

The slotted expansion chamber design of the Q-Comp has no prongs or tines to break off or snag and is Melonite QPQ coated alloy steel for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. The Q-Comp is easily installed on your AR rifle using the included crush washer.

“We have met our goal of development with the Q-Comp design with exceptional recoil control without the excess noise, flash and concussion common to most rifle muzzle brake designs. The Q-Comp will really enhance your tactical rifle shooting experience.”-Bill Wilson, President of Wilson Combat.

Wilson Combat recently updated their very popular T.R.I.M. rails with the KeyMod accessory attachment system.

Yesterday, Wilson Combat revealed that they are entering the 9mm AR market. Pistol Caliber ARs have truly been on fire in the AR industry over the past year. The ones that are most popular (and for good reason) are those that take magazines that are compatible with other handguns. Having a primary and secondary weapon that use the same mags and ammo means I now can carry on style mag on a plate carrier or chest rig, in my car, etc. and know I have both weapons covered. Not to mention pistol caliber ARs are much more accurate at distance than their handgun counterparts. 

You might be thinking that Wilson Combat is a little late to the show but to me it looks like they took their time to come up with a product worthy of the Wilson Combat name and some great options. They will be offering 3 models of 9mm ARs. An AR Pistol and SBR with your choice of 8″ 0r 11.3″ barrel or a 14.7″ or 16″ barrel, all with the new 9mm QCOMP muzzle device. You will also get to choose if you want your Wilson Combat AR9 to take Glock, M&P or Baretta 92 mags. Read more about the new offerings in the press release below.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR

The Wilson Combat AR9 9mm pistol caliber carbine was designed from the ground up as the new standard in pistol caliber carbine reliability. The use of common 9mm service pistol magazines makes it an ideal choice for patrol, home defense and cost-effective tactical training.

Wilson Combat engineers have designed three unique AR9 lower receivers with last round bolt hold open that are compatible with the most popular 9mm service pistol magazines from GlockⓇ, BerettaⓇ and S&WⓇ.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

The Wilson Combat AR9 closed-bolt blowback operating system is soft shooting and reliable with a wide variety of 9mm loads and exhibits flawless feeding with all common pistol bullet shapes, including hollowpoint and +P tactical ammunition. The AR9 bolt hold open ensures reliable lockback on empty with your pistol’s factory magazines. The AR9 proprietary bolt carrier group with heavy duty claw extractor and plunger ejector is tuned for exceptional reliability.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

These new billet machined aluminum receiver models also accept standard AR accessories like furniture, triggers, charging handles, buttstocks and optics, and incorporate an integral trigger guard and flared magwell for fast reloading. The AR9 series of carbines has multiple unique patent-pending features that make it unique to the 9mm carbine market.

The AR9 is also an optimized suppressor host with minimal gas blowback and enhanced accuracy over other designs. Wilson Combat carbon steel match-grade button-rifled 1-10” twist 9mm barrels ensure that the AR9 meets our stringent quality and accuracy requirements.

The Wilson Combat AR9 can be ordered with your choice of GlockⓇ 17, S&WⓇ M&P or BerettaⓇ 92 magazine compatibility and configured as a pistol, carbine or short barreled rifle (all NFA rules apply). The AR9 is offered with your choice of fluted or non-fluted barrels in multiple lengths and various Wilson Combat designed muzzle devices.

Wilson Combat 9mm AR 1

Not simply a converted AR-15, the Wilson Combat AR9 has been specifically designed for superior reliability and maximum accuracy, while retaining the familiar handling and controls of the AR platform. The AR9 is available with your choice of pistol magazine compatibility, barrel length, custom Armor Tuff colors and other accessory options to suit your specific needs.

“We have extensively tested the AR9 and it has exceeded my expectations for reliability and accuracy. When the AR9 is mated with a quality red dot sight and weapon light it is an exceptional training and home defense firearm for shooters of all skill levels.” -Bill Wilson, President of Wilson Combat

A Word From Bill…
“The goal of the Wilson Combat team was to design and build a premium quality lightweight .308 platform carbine that is accurate and reliable with minimum weight and bulk, I think we have successfully achieved our goal.

Personally I have never been a fan of the .308 platform AR due to weight and a lot of square edges on the ones I’ve handled, I believe the Wilson Combat design team has resolved these issues and produced an extremely user friendly carbine.

Even though AR carbines in 5.56, 6.8 SPC and .458 SOCOM do most of what I need in a ranch rifle, the added range with knock down power of the .308 will certainly come in handy from time to time.”

Wilson Combat just introduced a brand new .308 version of their awesome T.R.I.M. rail.  T.R.I.M. stands for “Tactical Rail Interface, Modular”.   For a regular AR15 there are many “modular” rails out there that allow you to move rail sections around to fit your needs but there are very few for the .308 variants.  The T.R.I.M. has always stood out because of Wilson Combat’s attention to detail and quality.  Now they have another reason and that is because they also offer a version that fits .308 DPMS Patter AR rifles.  The new .308 T.R.I.M. rail is available for purchase right now in both 12″ and 14″ lengths.  You can check them out at WilsonCombat.com or by clicking the individual links below.

Wilson Combat is world renown for making some amazing high-end 1911s and AR15s so it is no surprise that they have added a new billet option for their lineup.   Billet receivers are very sought after as they typically allow the manufacturer greater freedom when it comes to the appearance of the piece and have a much more premium feel.  Their usually isn’t a lot of added benefit to going with billet aside from the Integrated Winter Trigger Guard and a Flared Magwell but Wilson Combat isn’t just your regular old, run of the mill AR manufacturer.  They not only have a sweet looking billet receiver set now but also have made some additional improvements over traditional billet receivers.  These will be offered as an upgrade option when ordering a complete AR or Upper Assembly from WC.  Unfortunately there is no word yet if they will offer these as a standalone purchase.  Maybe if we ask nice enough!  : )  Check out the pics and details below.

Wilson Combat logo 2Wilson Combat is known all over for their amazing world class 1911’s but they have also been making a name for themselves with their AR-15’s and AR-15 accessories.  I personally have used many Wilson Combat components for my AR-15’s and will vouch for their quality.  For the most part Wilson Combat either built a complete AR-15 or sold the components to build it yourself but no uppers.  That was until now.  They have added 22 different AR-15 Complete Upper Receivers to their lineup available in 5.56 NATO, .223 Wylde, 6.8 SPC II, 300AAC Blackout, 7.62×40 WT and .458 SOCOM.  These complete uppers are typical works of art that Wilson Combat has proven to produce every time and include the BCG and CH.  If you’re looking to build a budget rifle then these may not be our speed.  However, if you’re looking for a quality AR-15 Complete Upper that will give you years of serious work without fail, you can’t go wrong with any of the Wilson Combat products listed below.  Click on the images below to see all available uppers in the caliber.  You can also check out all other Wilson Combat products at WilsonCombat.com.   Continue reading “NEW!!

Wilson Combat logo 2Whether you’re hunting Hogzilla, Godzilla or Bigfoot, there’s a good chance your standard caliber AR-15 just isn’t going to cut it.  You need something with a big enough “Thump” to take down even the biggest and most worthy opponent.  That’s exactly why Bill Wilson of Wilson Combat started his Wilson Combat .458 SOCOM Project.  The pairing of the .458 SOCOM round with the AR-15 platform creates a devastating combination that will give you that one shot one kill power you need when hunting big game….or Yeti’s.  You can choose to either upgrade your existing AR-15 by purchasing the .458 SOCOM conversion kits which consist of the barrel, BCG, Flash Hider, Adjustable Gas Block and Gas Tube or you can just purchase the complete Wilson Combat .458 SOCOM upper receiver.  You can check out some pics below.  Follow the link at the bottom of the article to go to the Wilson Combat site.   Continue reading “NEW!!

wilson_combat_logoWilson Combat just announced that they have 4 brand new 18″ Match Grade Barrels in-stock and ready to ship.  Wilson Combat makes some of the highest quality barrels on the market.  I know this personally because I use one of their Match Grade 16″ RECON SS Fluted barrels as the heart and soul of my new 300 Blackout upper.  These 4 new barrels consist of two Midlength that are chambered in 5.56 and two Carbine chambered in 300 Blackout.  All 4 are stainless steel 1/8 twist barrels.  I’ve copied a picture of all 4 below with their specs and pricing.  Check em out!    Continue reading “NEW!! 4 Brand New 18″ Wilson Combat Barrels” »

I’ve been slowly making a few purchases to add to our 300 Blackout complete upper build.  I showed you last week that I am using a Wilson Combat RECON Match 16″ Fluted SS barrel and their Accu-Tac flash hider.  These next few items are much smaller parts but are just as integral in making this a really cool build.  It seems like everyone is talking about 300 Blackout right now so I’m going to be showing you every part I use.  That way you can either copy my build or customize the list of items so yours will look the way you want it to.  As always, feel free to email or call me if you have any questions.  Check out these cool items below.   Continue reading “AR15News.com 300 AAC Blackout Build – Small But Important Parts!” »

This is not my typical post but when my buddy Colin from 556 Tactical / Assault Life™ sent me this video on Facebook I thought it was too cool to not share on AR15News.com!  Colin recently partnered up with Wilson Combat to produce a custom Combat Recon 6.8SPC AR-15 which uses a Wilson Combat 6.8SPC barrel and TRIM Rail System to make this an awesome shooting rifle.  He decided to take the Combat Recon and his Saiga Shotgun with him on his latest thrill seeking adventure….Helicopter Hog Hunting!!  This is not nearly as easy as it looks.  Check out the cool video below!   Continue reading “Helicopter Hog Hunting Video from 556 Tactical / Assault Life” »

Ever since the 300 Blackout round was introduced to the world I (along with most of the AR-15 nuts) have been obsessed with it.  To be able to shoot a larger round while still using the same Magazines, Bolt Carrier Group, Lower and Upper seemed amazing.  All you need to change out is the barrel and flash hider.  The original idea was to just buy a barrel and then switch back-and-forth depending on if I wanted to shoot 5.56 NATO or 300 Blackout.  Obviously that would be pretty time consuming so what I decided to do was build a 300 Blackout complete upper.  This way I can swap out my 5.56 upper for a 300 Blackout upper in just a matter of seconds.  The first step was to get a barrel and I think you’ll like the one I got.   Continue reading “AR15News.com 300 AAC Blackout Build – The Heart and Soul is the Barrel” »
