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.

  • Attractive and Accurate

    Posted by Matt on Sep 6th 2016

    What more can I say,another Faxon barrel that shoots well, but this one looks good doing it!

  • High quality, fit and finish, and superb accuracy

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 10th 2016

    The barrel came in very well packaged container. The finish was impeccable and the barrel came well protected. Installed to the upper without a hitch.

    The flame fluting was a little sharp on the corners, but it'll (for better or worse) live under a handguard.

    Accuracy was amazing! Got ~MOA groups with regular M193 ball ammo. Will get glass and shoot some match ammo through it sometime.

    sweet 2nd 0ne will buy again

  • Great barrel for the price

    Posted by Unknown on May 11th 2016

    Barrel is good quality, and accurate. Only had a chance to shoot it at 25 yards off of one bag but still shot 0.5-0.7 inches with a red dot. If I put a scope, it'll be a great DMR, probably sub-MOA. I am running this with an Armalite 3-gun compensator and mil spec BCG with carbine length buffer spring, standard buffer, and fixed Magpul stock. This is a great option for a DMR build or even 3-gun if you think you can lug around some more weight.

  • Good Barrel

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 21st 2016

    I recieved my barrel and it looked good out of the packaging. It was a tight fit into my BCM upper but that was fine. Very sharp looking barrel. So far i have shot 2 moa with cheaper factory ammo at 100 yds and 1.5 moa with 55 grain Horandy ammo. Although it was factory ammo, I was hoping for a little better. I'm going to start reloading and see if I can do better. Overall a nice barrel.

  • sub-moa

    Posted by www.americanresistancegear.com on Mar 17th 2016

    Put this barrel on paper at 100yds and with Hornady 55gr V-max it consistently shoots sub-MOA. Very pleased with the price to quality ratio.

  • Fast shipment and a beautiful barrel !

    Clean crisp machine work, absolutely perfect in every detail. Looks better in person than the web pics. I will be buying more Faxon products in the future.

    Great finish beautiful workmanship nice barrel

  • Awesome

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 26th 2015

    Built a new 18" gun trying to save weight, the 18" gunner was out of stock so I decided to give this barrel a try. It is lighter than my last build by 10 oz which is a lot when you are counting every ounce. Do not hesitate to try any of their barrels, great service, quality materials, fast shipping glad I ran across Faxon while surfing.
