Wilson Combat Introduces the AR Hunter Series

posted on September 27, 2017
Designed to be the lightest large-bore ARs 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 like 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Rem., 7 mm-08 Rem., .308 Win., .338 Federal and .358 Win.. With the majority of the major components of the Hunter series designed and machined in its Berryville, Ark., facility, the rifles are guaranteed to shoot sub 1", 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. The new low-mass bolt carriers along with a tuneable Wilson/SLR click-adjustable gas block ensure smooth cycling and operation across a wide variety of ammunition pressures. It also features the time-tested, rugged Tactical Trigger Unit.

The Ultimate Hunter
7 lbs. 5 oz.

MSRP: $3,345
Available Calibers: .308 Win., .338 Fed.,
.358 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor

Bill Wilson consider this his ideal hunting AR. The medium-lightweight profile barrel will provide accuracy and lightweight portability. The Smoke Composites fixed, 100 percent carbon-fiber stock, lightweight, match-grade button rifled barrel and Wilson Combat M-LOK rail shave the most weight possible from the AR platform. 

The Tactical Hunter 
7 lbs. 11 oz.

MSRP: $3,145 (Non-Fluted) $3,195 (Fluted)
Available Calibers: 7 mm-08 Rem., .308 Win.,
.338 Fed., 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Rem.

Ideal large bore AR for hunting game or general tactical and defensive use. The threaded, match-grade button rifled barrel is ideal for suppressed shooting and an adjustable buttstock adapts the gun's size to various size shooters or for storage use. The new Wilson Combat M-LOK rail is lightweight but rugged and designed for heavy use.

The Ultralight Hunter 
7 lbs.

MSRP: $3,295
Available Calibers: .308 Win., .338 Fed., .358 Win.

This model features a lightweight billet receiver, lightweight bolt carrier, Wilson Combat M-LOK rail, ultralight profile barrel and carbon fiber stock. The Ultralight Hunter has an overall length of 35 1/8" and only weighs 7 lbs. without the magazine making it the lightest large format AR on the market. The Wilson Combat Ultralight Hunter is easy to carry all day in the field.
