I put this on my AERO EPC and with 147gr bullets it shoots a 1.5 inch group at 30 yards!
Purchased to replace another barrel that was not reliable in feeding Federal HST based off of friends and reviews. HST would hang up at 6 position of chamber entrance as well as FMJ flat tip ammo. Will have to try and polish that area and see if that will fix it. Using Spikes Glock lower with a Spikes Upper with Faxon 9mm bolt. Other issue that turned up was failure to extract issues, this never happened with the other manufacture barrel in it. Any suggestions to get reliability with HST ammo would be appreciated.
Great barrel very accurate, great looks
I must say that this barrel surpassed my expectations. The finish is beautiful and it has performed flawlessly at the range. Packaging was great and it arrived in a timely manner. I am very happy I went with this barrel for my build.
The quality of the barrel is excellent and shipping was quick. I am very satisfied with the range results @ 50 yds. It shoots much more accurate than I do. Would highly recommend for the price.
Put together a 9mm pistol and the barrel is 1" at 25 yards accurate and fed everything from FMJ's to gaping hollow points, 115,124, 147 and plus P. Extremely happy with it.
Barrel is beautifully milled and finished, it fit a little loose in my Aero Precision upper. Plan to use Permatex hi temp sleeve retainer compound to insure tightest fit. best value for the money. Mike
I have to say that the finish quality is superb. The barrel is well made, and the cost is excellent. Great job Faxon!
The fit and finish is great. Can't beat the price. And performs great. I just wish it was a heavier profile, being so short, it wouldn't add much weight, but add accuracy and reduce heat build up. Don't hesitate to buy!
