Davidson’s, a large firearms wholesaler, has partnered with Wilson Combat again to produced another Davidson’s Exclusive firearm for the market, the Wilson Combat PPE carbine. The Wilson Combat PPE is an AR-15 style carbine based off the Wilson Combat WC-15 platform. Both the upper and lower receiver of the PPE are made from forged aluminum.

The barrel that comes on the PPE is 16” LE Profile chambered for 5.56 NATO. The barrel is chrome lined, made of carbon steel and has a 1-8” twist. A Q-comp muzzle device comes threaded onto the barrel.

Surrounding the barrel is a free-floating Wilson Combat 10.4” M-LOK compatible handguard with a Picatinny rail segment spanning across the top. The PPE uses a mid-length gas system and a low-profile gas block hidden under the handguard.

The Wilson Combat PPE also comes with a Wilson Combat TTU (Tactical Trigger Unit) M2 two-stage trigger with a pull weight of 4 lbs. A Rogers Super-Stoc telescoping buttstock and a BCM Starburst Gunfighter Grip are also included with the PPE package.

Control layout is the same as other standard AR-15 style carbines. The Davidson’s Wilson Combat PPE carbine retails for $1,950. For more information on the Wilson Combat PPE carbine visit wilsoncombat.com.
