When it comes to lightweight, large bore AR perfection, the Wilson Combat reports that the new HUNTER series sets the benchmark for hard-hitting, accurate precision semi-auto shooting performance.
Designed to be the lightest large bore AR’s on the market, the HUNTER series from Wilson Combat consists of three all-new models of varying weights and features chambered in high-performance precision and hunting calibers such as 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Remington, 7mm-08 Rem., .308 Win., .338 Fed. or .358 Win. The majority of the major components of the HUNTER series are designed and machined in Wilson’s Berryville, Arkansas facility, and you can be assured that these new rifles have been thoroughly tested to be the best that a lightweight AR rifle can be. They are guaranteed to shoot sub one-inch, three-shot groups at 100 yards.
Like all Wilson Combat custom AR-pattern rifles, the new HUNTER models feature in-house, button-rifled, stainless match grade barrels in varying lengths at the heart of each gun. New low-mass bolt carriers along with a tuneable Wilson/SLR click-adjustable gas blocks ensure smooth cycling and operation across a wide variety of ammunition pressures. The time-tested, rugged Tactical Trigger Unit gives you the confidence in taking a clean shot on the trophy of your dreams.
