After rigorous testing and evaluation Wilson Combat is pleased to announce the availability of our new large format BILLet-AR rifles in .308 Winchester caliber. The .308 caliber rifle is an ideal choice for the hunter or long range shooter looking for an AR-style rifle with impressive down range ballistics.

These all-new rifles utilize our in-house BILLet-AR receiver technology to build the next generation of lightweight but accurate and reliable semi-automatic rifles suitable for a variety of tactical and outdoor roles. This rifle is further enhanced with our renowned custom features like precision machined Match Grade barrels, T.R.I.M hand guard rail and crisp Tactical Trigger Units.

These .308 rifles raise the bar for .308 AR accuracy and reliability.

The rigid but lightweight BILLet-AR receiver allows us to build the lightest .308 frame AR on the market with the 7.7 pound Tactical Lightweight Model that has a lightweight 14.7" barrel and pinned muzzle device as standard.

Medium, Recon profile 16", 18" or 20" fluted or standard barrel models are also available for shooters seeking maximum precision and all around long range performance in a slightly heavier but portable package.

Our receivers have been designed to accept commonly available metal or polymer "SR-25" pattern magazines. Numerous finish options, muzzle device, various rail lengths and other custom features are also available.

These rifles have the Wilson Combat performance you can trust along with our best-in-industry 100% Customer Satisfaction pledge.A Word From Bill..."The goal of the Wilson Combat team was to design and build a premium quality lightweight .308 platform carbine that is accurate and reliable with minimum weight and bulk, I think we have successfully achieved our goal.

Personally I have never been a fan of the .308 platform AR due to weight and a lot of square edges on the ones I've handled, I believe the Wilson Combat design team has resolved these issues and produced an extremely user friendly carbine.

Even though AR carbines in 5.56, 6.8 SPC and .458 SOCOM do most of what I need in a ranch rifle, the added range with knock down power of the .308 will certainly come in handy from time to time."
