Faxon 18" Big Gunner Profile AR10 Barrel, 308 Win, Nitrided
- Usually ships within 2 business days.
Faxon's .308 continue our fantastic barrel-making with a bit more punch. We've updated our previous Medium-Taper profile taking into account customer feedback, optimizing the barrel to meet the Gunner brand's high standards.
The .308 Big Gunner profile barrels are the big-brother to our famous 5.56 Gunner barrels. The Big Gunners feature a medium-taper behind the gas block. The gas block journal is set to .750" for compatibility with most common gas blocks and 1.9" in length for long blocks or aftermarket piston kits. From the gas block journal forward we use a thinner taper, designed to reduce weight yet maintain rigidity for high rates of fire and as a suppressor host.
The Gunner barrels are ideal for any competition or duty use. When the seconds count, count on the Gunner profile.

Got this to replace the stock barrel in my Aero M5E1, and for being almost a full two pounds lighter it is still more accurate (at least with my hoard of mixed surplus M80 ball). No issues with undergassing or feeding, headspaced fine using both a Toolcraft and Aero Bolt.
I was shocked at how accurate this barrel is. During my break in shooting, I put 40 rounds through the barrel offhand and could not miss the same spot. I ended up with an AR10 that weights 10 pounds (with scope) and easily out shoots everything else I own. I bought a second barrel to build a duplicate gun for my brother because it shoots so well. The fit and finish are amazing, the chamber passed when I checked my bolt with a Go, No-go guage set, the shipping was fast. You will not work with a better company when building your AR.
I was looking to replace the barrel from another manufacturer that was heavy profiled with mid gas bust was still printing 2 or more inches at 100yds with match ammo on my Ar10 build. Wasn't happy with accuracy or weight so I switched brands and went with this faxon 18in lighter profile barrel and loved it! Ive only taken it out once so far, did some fuction checks, zeroed and printed a couple 5rnd groups but my groups were only 1/2in at 100yds! It also ran 100% and with the rifle length gas the recoil was almost not noticable and made for soft shooting. This barrel increased the accuracy of my rifle and cut almost a pound off the overall weight. I can't be happier this was the perfect barrel for my ar10 build. Highly recommend for precision or hunting rifle build!
