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

    Very light weight, accurate and none of the whip and drift found in traditional pencil barrels

    20" gunner barrel

    Assembled this barrel on a Aero Precision upper and was very pleased with accuracy . Sighted in at 25 yards and moved to 100 . Almost 3 rounds in 1 hole. I have been shooting 5.56 for 55 years and this barrel impressed an old gunner !

    20” gunner barrel

    Posted by Sean Whitfield on Mar 15th 2022

    This is a very high quality barrel my only qualm with it is that there is no option for it to be slotted for an a frame sight post. My rifle I’m building is an m16a1 clone on the outside with Gucci parts on the inside and a Gucci barrel. The barrel was the one I chose as it had the pencil profile after the sight block so it would give the proper look. It matted up perfectly with my colt upper and when I got my colt sight block and on the barrel I realized that it was slotted which was a pain staking process to solve considering most gun smiths in my area were unwilling to spend the time drilling it. That being said once I found a smith willing to do the work I had no problem with it and the rifle shoots terrifically. That being said in short in my mind one of the only ways this barrel can be improved is by adding an option for slots should you want that with your build.

    20" Gunner, 5.56

    I've bought a pair of these and have been very impressed. My first barrel has roughly 9k rounds through it and its still as accurate as the 1st. They clean up easily enough. They've performed flawlessly for me and I see little sign of wear. I would like to see them bring the nickel-Teflon to the extension, or at least as an option, and do a side by side on feeding and cleaning with the Wylde barrels I have. These are a great barrels at a great price and they will not fail you.

    great barrel

    Faxon is a great company and one of the few that make melonine barrels, only wish they made a 1 in 9 twist for it though. Most people shoot the 55g federal rounds. if they would branch out to midwayusa they would own alot of the barrel market.

    Have not shot it yet. Finnish looks great and I expect it to make my ole SP1 more accurate.

    Very happy with the barrel. Was interested in the gas block before I saw the deal with the barrel. Great quality barrel for the price!

    Quality product

    This is the second barrel I've purchased from Faxon... and again, I've been quite impressed with the quality of their products. You can't beat the price for all that you get. They also make it very easier to order and purchase. I love how you have the ability to order your gas tube and low profile gas block all at the same time. It just makes it easier. Keep up the good work Faxon! :)
