Faxon 14.5" Gunner Profile AR15 Barrel, 5.56 Nato, Nitrided

(12 reviews)
Current Stock:

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.

    I only gave it 4 stars because I didn't throw on a high power scope and test it for groups but I was getting 1 inch groups at 75 yards with a red dot which is as good as any ar I have ever shot . Well done!

    Put this on a Anderson upper/lower, CMC trigger, Magpul/Troy furniture. Great bang for the buck. Highly recommend

    Best barrel for the money!

    First things first: This thing is SO lightweight! It's a pound lighter than some barrels. The gunner profile is very sleek as well. This barrel is very accurate as well! Throw in one of the micro gas blocks and it can't be beat!
