Wilson Combat debuted a new Super Sniper Rifle chambered in precision shooting’s darling round, the 6.5 Creedmoor.
The Super Sniper boasts a Wilson Combat Recon Tactical 22-inch match grade barrel on an overall 42-inch length frame. Featuring a rifle length gas system with SLR Rifleworks Gas Block, the long gun utilizes a billet upper and lower receiver.
The gun is prepped with several features aimed to elevate its performance, including the Wilson Combat T.R.I.M rail, Rogers/Wilson Super-Stoc and Wilson Combat single-stage Tactical Trigger Unit. Topped off with a Armor-Tuff finish, Wilson Combat fans have the option to order the rifle in a custom Amor-Tuff finish with Wilson Combat subdued flag logo stencil emblazoned on the gun. Additional optional custom upgrades include a threaded muzzle with Rapid Thread Muzzle Break.
Wilson Combat says arming the rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor was no accident, pointing to the rounds high ballistic coefficient and downrange performance in precision rifle shooting and hunting.
“When seeking the best extended-range shooting or hunting performance in an AR platform rifle the 6.5 Creedmoor is the logical choice,” the company said in a statement. “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.”
Base pricing on the Super Sniper in 6.5 Creedmoor starts at $3,290.
