Guns & Tactics, a renowned team of reviewers and shooters, recently put a GUNNER barrel through their testing. Using a 14.5" barrel with pinned and welded muzzle device, the barrel is shown to be an excellent option.
Guns & Tactic's Conclusion:
In my assessment, I think that Faxon Firearms proved a couple of things. First, the folks at Faxon say what they mean and mean what they say when it comes to customer service and making sure their customers are pleased. I was impressed that they were willing to be open to inspect their own product for deficiencies rather than simply blame the shooter (as was obviously the case).
Second, these barrels are great and fall in line with exactly what I look for in a product; quality gear from quality people with a balance of durability, performance, and cost effectiveness.
High points for the GUNNER barrel:
- Performance: solid performer, obvious MOA accuracy at 100 yards, negligible POI shift cold or hot, and limited deviation with a suppressor attached.
- Features: 1.2 pounds, light, attractive in appearance, and keeps weight off the front of the rifle due to design.
- PRICE: The 14.5" GUNNER barrel retails at $165.00, which is a steal.
All in all, I have nothing bad to say about the Faxon Firearms GUNNER barrel, and there may be more of these for me in the very, very near future. Buy these with confidence, just know your application.
