The Recon Tactical and Super Sniper join Wilson Combat’s lineup of premium AR-15 rifles offering the company’s match-grade, medium-weight stainless steel barrel. At the heart of the new rifle is a 1:6.5-inch twist rate designed to handle the .224 Valkyrie round.
With a base price of $2,225, the Super Sniper offers a 20-inch barrel length on an overall 40.5-inch frame. Weighing just over 8-pounds, the Super Sniper delivers a rifle-length gas system with Lo-Profile Gas Block. Featuring premium add-ons such as a T.R.I.M. 13-8-inch rail, Wilson Combat/BCM Starburst Gunfighter Grip and Rogers Super-Stoc Buttstock, the design is topped off by an Armor-Tuff finish.
