Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle – First Look

The Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle is the latest collaboration between Wilson Combat and renowned author and tactical shooting expert Paul Howe.

Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle – First Look

The Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor is designed as an all-purpose medium to long-range tactical rifle with an effective terminal range surpassing 1000 yards.

The hand-applied Camouflage Armor-Tuff finish has been developed to blend in well in many urban and rural environments, reduces the IR signature and keeps the rifle cooler in high temperatures. The Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor base is Wilson Combat’s billet WC-10 large-format AR receiver set that will hold up to a lifetime of hard use. This precision rifle wears a match-grade, precision chambered stainless steel 16” barrel with deep lightening flutes and comes standard with an Accu-Tac flash hider. This barrel profile maintains an optimized size and weight profile with-out sacrificing accuracy or reliability.

A two-stage Wilson Combat TTU with heavier springs for a 4.5-pound trigger release-- an ideal weight for gloved use in an operational environment-- is standard. Paul selected a Daniel Defense fixed front sight tower along with his CSAT rear aperture flip-up for fast, reliable combat sighting. The Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor can be ordered as a solo rifle, or as a complete package kitted with Paul's preferred Leupold optic, Wilson Combat lightweight scope mount, and Vickers sling.

Lightweight and compact with match-grade accuracy, the Paul Howe 6.5 Creedmoor has all the features needed for outstanding overall performance.
