The Wilson arms barrel company in Brantford, Connecticut. Wilson has been making barrels for over 50+ years and makes the barrels for Cooper Rifles. Actually Wilson Arms has owned Cooper Rifles for almost 10 years now... We get the exact same quality barrel Cooper does...
The Wilson Arms barrels are Select Match Grade, button rifled barrels; lapped and air gauged to .0002". The blanks in are 27" to finish at 26" or less... These barrels are the same quality as a Shilen Select match; Douglas XX; and even the X-caliber barrels just at a $50-$100 discount in price. We buy in blocks of 100 to 200 barrels every month so our price with Wilson is simply passed on to the shooter.

The second contour is our #5.5 contour. This contour is primarily for our Big Bore barrels. Classic heavy sporter contour with an OD of .750 at 26".
