The Gunner profile is a blend of two of the best performing profiles of all time, Gov't and Pencil. Faxon's Gunner profile combines the durability of the Gov't profile with the weight savings and maneuverability of the Pencil profile. The Gunner profile brings the balance of the rifle back towards the shooter's body, limiting fatigue, and allowing for shooting, training, or hunting all day long.
Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured in-house in Cincinnati, Ohio, Faxon 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 beginning of the manufacturing process.. 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 with precision PTG gauges.

This Barrel is performed as good or better than I expected. I have quite a few barrels from Faxon firearms and I have come to trust in their accuracy, the craftsmanship, reliability, as well as their customer service.
Feed ramps and extension are very clean and nicely done. Fit to my various upper receivers have been very consistent and borderline tight (this is a great thing).
Great profile offers weight savings without jeopardizing function and longevity. With the right ammunition combination I am experiencing sub MOA groups.
Highly recommend this barrel and many others offered by Faxon Firearms.
I have used the 16: Faxon Gunner barrel in a few applications and find superb accuracy, combined with great fit, finish, contour look and attractive over all weight package for the complete rifle.
Great barrel and reasonably priced... I recommend this barrel for your next 16" AR platform build!
Really like this barrel it and the bold assembly I bought with it worked great. I would recommend then to anyone.
After having one of my customers ask me to build them a lightweight AR I started to research what would be the best barrel I could find that would fit his requirements. After some time we settled on Faxon’s 16” Gunner barrel. This is one of the best barrels out there.
The Gunner barrel is top shelf, very accurate, the contour and weight is perfect and you can’t beat the price.
We have use this barrel in over 20 builds and will never look back.
Really love this contour on a barrel. The finish was very high quality. Shot great !!
The 16" Gunner is impossible to beat for the price IMO. Fit and finish is superb. First 5 shots using some 55gr sp ultra max was about 2moa, 2nd 5 shots fiocchi 50gr vmax was at 1moa. The coyotes don't stand a chance now. Thanks Faxon!
