Stainless accuracy with heavy barrel heat resistance and durability. QPQ Black Nitride for longevity, performance, and corrosion resistance. 

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 believe this is the best barrel for the money... Period!

    Posted by Ed from Boise on Jul 1st 2016

    Haven't completed my build but I am totally impressed with the fit and finish of this barrel. I have no doubt it will be a tack driver and, if not, I know Faxon will stand behind it. They have an awesome product and business model; no need to consider anyone else.

    Very happy with the my barrel. The fit and finish is excellent, especially for the price tag. Customer service is second to none with my experience with them. They actually replied to a email on a Sunday! I have had trouble with other company's not responding at all and that can be very frustrating especially when you have spent a lot with them. I would most decently buy from them again and plain to do so soon on my 308 build and have been recommending them to others as well. Just hope they stay this way!

  • so far so good

    Haven't put many rounds down range yet but everything was perfect when I received it and I can hit steel at 300yards with ease so I'd have to say its pretty damn good

  • Top of line barrel
