Our pencil barrels are the lightest in the industry. Don't take just our word for it, major companies like Robar, 2A Armament, and others choose Faxon pencils for their ideal balance of weight and performance.
Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured 100% in-house from cradle-to-grave, these barrels are fully stress relieved, air-gauge tested, and 11 degree target crowned to ensure superior accuracy.
Quality is imbued into our barrels from the start. We start with the best materials, either certified 4150 Mil-Spec steel or 416-R Stainless. From there, each barrel goes through a battery of tests at each operation until finished in Nitride and final inspected. All barrels are individually checked for headspace by precision custom hardened gauges.
Faxon manufactures all our barrels in Cincinnati, Ohio under our ISO:9001 and AS:9100 quality certifications.
I've built multiple rifles for clients using the Faxon products, specifically the barrels. Having nearly 35 years experience as a gunsmith and high end custom weapons building, it's a real pleasure to use such high quality products, that are very reasonably priced! I believe in the Faxon products, enough to use them for military, law enforcement, and more recently my wife and daughter's custom rifles! Jeffrey Mitchell / SRTLLC on 28th Feb 2017
Loved the barrel so much I bought another within 1 week. Barrels are very light and take weight of the far end of the rifle which helps to better balance the rifle making it feel even lighter then it is. Accuracy is right up there with my $450 stainless 416r poly rifling barrels. I have the barrel paired with a lightweight bcg and SLR sentry 6 adjustable gas block and will be running this setup with ALL future rifle builds. Matthew on 20th Feb 2017
I am a full time LE firearms instructor with a State police academy, and have one of these barrels installed on my primary training rifle. It is the lightest quality barrel I have been able to find, period! I have this rifle slung hours on end, and appreciate the reduced weight. With that said, there is no sacrifice of accuracy for the weight savings. These barrels are very accurate as well. I have purchased 3 of these barrels and all of them have performed flawlessly. The fit, finish, and quality are unequaled. I couldn't be happier with the customer service that I have received from Faxon! They are a great people, making quality components. Joe on 14th Feb 2017
