Size Chart

Our valued FLAME fluted barrel improved with QPQ and with stainless accuracy. Variable-depth fluting gives the barrel fantastic performance and an unmistakable look. 

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.

  • Top Notch!!!

    Posted by Blake on Feb 21st 2017

    I am a professional gunsmith and licensed manufacturer. Faxon barrels are some of the best barrels I have ever used. I use them almost exclusively on my builds. The flame is a particular favorite od mine. The fluting gives it a little bit extra. I have been able to get half moa groups @100yrds with this particular barrel. Its worth every penny! Buy it and dont look back.

    Been shooting with this barrel for a couple of months now and I love it more every time I shoot it. I have hit a 300 yard target with iron sights with it. And it looks great!
