Faxon M&P Full Size Flame Fluted Barrel, Non-Threaded, Chameleon PVD
Faxon's Match Series Pistol Barrels for Smith and Wesson/M&P are machined 100% in-house from stress-relieved 416-R stainless steel. These barrels are then given a black Nitride or PVD coating to increase lubricity, barrel life, and resistance to surface wear. All barrels are conventionally rifled to allow a wider range of ammunition to be used, including cast lead. The barrels drop into factory-spec slides with no gunsmithing required. Better-than-factory tolerances ensure a consistent, tighter lockup than OEM.

Starting with S&W M&P1.0 Pro, I noticed inconsistencies in grouping. Original barrel apparently achieved notoriety for it's loose, excessive play, and erratic group patterns. Figured if I get drop in barrel, gonna have similar issues unless fitted, so I replaced my upper slide with the hellcat, thinking I'd have better odds with tolerances. I love the feel, design cosmetics, functionality, I mean it really was a great combo upgrade to accentuate all the internal upgrades. I just wish the finish was a little more durable, I mean I even regularly oil and clean my weapons so the only other possiblity: No drop in barrel will be perfectly comparable with OEM slide/upper resulting in wearing of the finish. Absolutely vanity though, maybe not if I torture tested it but good buy, even had miscommunications with them, to which they sent me the m&p model instantly and allowed me to just put the Glock style in new packages free of charge with next day. Great products and customer relations.
