    1. great barrel

      This barrel is a good quality barrel. I originally purchased this in July, but later had to return mine due to it not having correct feed ramps. Faxon payed for return shipping and got me a brand new barrel fast. I did not put this in the review to deter anyone from buying this barrel. I just noted it since it was what happend. Every manufacturer has an occasional issue that does not get caught. Once I installed and zeroed the barrel I was happy with its performance. I havent got a chance to shoot past 50 yards, but I expect this barrel is easily a sub moa barrel with the right ammo. I would not hesitate to purchase again on 7th Dec 2016

    2. Sub MOA

      This is a spectacular barrel irrespective of price. After a 100 round break-in period in accordance with Faxon procedures, the rifle easily gave me sub-MOA results with decent handloads (68gr Hornady BTHP over 24gr of Varget, My next build will definitely include a Faxon barrel!

    3. Great quality barrel

      This was my second barrel from Faxon Firearms and I am pleased with it. It is accurate and well made. I would definatly look into these barrels if buildin an ar-15 because they are quality made and very affordable on 19th Aug 2016

    4. great deal!

      I haven't got to shoot many rounds through this barrel yet but while trying to sight in my scope I was getting many clover leaf holes at 100 yards with cheap perfecta ammo! I was very impressed with the quality of this barrel and if I was to build another upper wouldn't hesitate to buy from Faxon again! So happy I went with this barrel and anyone else would be too! on 15th Aug 2016

    5. Very Nice!

      I also put this barrel on a customers build, and using PMC Bronze 55gr ammo and came in under MOA. Very good deal on this barrel! on 17th Jun 2016
