Wilson Combat debuts a new set of rifles, the Ranger AR series, which combines the company’s lightweight billet receiver set to the Ranger match grade barrel.

The combination lends itself to a fast-handling AR setup that Wilson Combat says is perfectly suited for tactical, defense or hunting. The Ranger comes equipped with a M-LOK rail in addition to a Tactical Trigger Unit and Wilson-SLR click adjustable gas block. The series comes in two models — the Ranger and Ultralight Ranger.
