Are these the same barrels?
 
Hey guys, I've finally made the decision to go with Wilson Combat for my barrel-maker. I want to get a 20" .223 Wylde 1-8 barrel. I found two, one on Wilson's site, and another on Fulton-Armory's site.

My question is - is the one being sold by Fulton the same as the one on WC's site? The only exception being, Fulton's is threaded. Bellow are the links.

Wilson Combat - http://shopwilsoncombat.com/Wilson-Combat-Match-Grade-Barrel-223-Wylde-Super-Sniper-20-1-8-Twist-Stainless/productinfo/TR-223SS20NF-18/

Fulton-Armory - http://www.fulton-armory.com/barrelfa20nmhbarss1x9threaded.aspx

If they are the same, I figure I'd go with Fulton's since it's less expensive AND is threaded. My guess is that Fulton buys in bulk, therefore can sell at lower cost. Can someone confirm this for me???

Please and thank you!!

Wilson and Wilson Combat are different companies.

Great... So now there's THREE!?! Wilson, Wilson Combat, an Wilson Arms? I'm declaring the name WILSON illegal. -___- fml.

I assumed ;) they ment Wilson Arms. Most will shout Wilson Combat to the ends of the Earth if it is Wilson Combat. Your best bet would be to call them.

PeeceKeeper 04-26-2012 05:31 AM

Alrighty, I just sent them an email. Let's see how long it takes =)

Very true. I have a Wilson Arms barrel in my ArmaLite upper. It's ok, just average, nothing horrible, nothing to brag about either. Wilson Combat is a tier above.

PeeceKeeper 04-26-2012 05:14 PM

Wow, they replied very quickly! Here's the email exchanged:

Thanks for the interest

A. Yes & No...Wylde is a specific brand name of reamer...so it is not a Wylde but is essentially the same (Kleenex vs Tissues)

B. FA is Fulton Armory, Wilson is Wilson Arms

C. Shipping is based off order total.... $101-$200 ships for $15.....$201-$350 ships for $20

D. Your order will ship within 2-3 business days of you placing the order and transit time to FL is 3 days

Subject: Interested in one of your products

Greetings,

I am interested in one of your AR15 barrels - specifically the one entitled "Barrel, 20", AR, HBAR, Stainless, Threaded, Match Quality, FA by Wilson"

I do have a few questions about it.

A. When you refer to it as "hybrid" .223/5.56mm, do you mean it's a ".223 Wylde" chambered barrel?

B. In the title it states "FA by Wilson" - what does "FA" stand for and are you referring to "Wilson Arms" or "Wilson Combat?"

C. What are your shipping charges if shipped to Miami, FL?

D. What is the shipping time?

I hope to hear from you soon and thank you for answering my questions. =)

Yeah. Bench/Tri-pod. Mostly aiming for long range. Which is hard to do in Miami. -__- I hate living here. Lol

I see a lot of the long range guys going for 24" barrels, how long is long? 1k?
