- Usually ships within 2 business days.
Faxon's MATCH SERIES of barrels takes our renowned performance and value up a notch.
Manufactured 100% in-house from gun-barrel-quality bar-stock, the Match Series starts with 416-R in 5R rifling. 5R is a hybrid rifling, with lands opposite grooves and reduced sharp angles that reduces jacket deformation increasing velocity and easy cleaning. We chamber our Match Series in .223 Wylde, a hybrid chamber that the 5R rifling takes full advantage of. Better accuracy through less bullet jump, but fully and individually MPI tested for your safety. After rigorous testing, the barrels are Nitride treated inside and out, locking in the bore, improving barrel life, and keeping the elements at bay.
The extension is coated in NP3, a nickel-teflon coating that maintains incredible dry lubricity, corrosion resistance, and with the coating, tightens up fit between the extension and receiver - again improving upon accuracy. Combined, the Match Series of barrels are ready for when duty calls or the buzzer beeps with unrivaled performance value.

All barrels are individually checked for headspace by precision custom hardened gauges.

Beautiful fit & finish @ 1/2 the price of other high end barrels. Can't go wrong with this barrel !!
Upon opening the packaging, I could immediately notice the attention to detail that went into the manufacturing of this barrel. There are no imperfections in the rifling, crowning, chamber or finish whatsoever. Even during break-in the barrel cycled every variety of .223 and 5.56 I put through it. This is definitely capable of sub MOA grouping even with lower end ammunition. I was able to put 4 rounds of Black Hills 77gr SMK 5.56 in a 0.4" group at 100 yards from a bench rest. The fluting is extremely efficient at dissipating heat; the difference was hugely noticeable over the factory barrel. Pair all of this with the fact that Faxon has some of the best customer service in the industry and you can't go wrong.
