Wilson Combat teamed up with Bravo Company Manufacturing to produce a signature Starburst version of the Mod 0 pistol grip. Additionally, they worked with Rogers to get the incredibly stable Super-Stoc. When you grip this rifle and lock it into your shoulder, it becomes an extension of yourself. It’s that solid.

There’s plenty of MLOK on the 15-inch handguard for mounting lights, lasers, foregrips, or adding the supplied QD mount for your sling.
Surprisingly, Wilson Combat chose to stick with a mil-spec charging handle. No big latch, ambi unit here. Additionally, no ambi safety selector is included. Both of these may be where Wilson Combat chose to save on cost compared to some of their other models.
Shooting & Accuracy
I ran the rifle through a number of drills and was pleasantly rewarded with decent times and accuracy. Right out of the gate, I ran a Bill Drill. That’s six rounds from low ready as fast as possible. Some may say it’s incredibly fitting to run that drill with this rifle. Although it’s unconfirmed, Bill Wilson, Wilson Combat’s creator, is rumored to be the drill’s originator.
I added in some 2-2-4-2-2 transition practice to see how well the full 16-inch rifle handled the transitions across multiple targets in comparison to my personal 11.5-inch Bravo Company rifle. I was delighted by the gun’s ability to track well without feeling like it was overly front heavy.
I wrapped up my movement testing with some reload drills. Sometimes, in the heat of trying to get the mag out, you find that a manufacturer’s tolerances may be tighter or looser than other guns and cause the mag to not drop freely. No issues were presented across three different magazine types, which is what I expected from a Wilson Combat rifle.
After getting a solid feel for the gun, I threw it onto my tripod to check the 50-yard and 100-yard accuracy. I had the rifle set up with a Trijicon MRO on a Reptilia Corp 1.93-inch mount. Again, as expected, I had no problems making hits. As the distance increased, the groups opened up to about 4 MOA, which I expect would have been tighter if I used an optic with some magnification.
