Fitment note:  Faxon Firearms M&P Shield barrels are not drop-in compatible with M&P Shield pistols that have a Loaded Chamber Indicator lever installed (such as the California compliant variation).  If you have a pistol with the LCI lever installed (or are unsure if your pistol is drop-in compatible) please contact our Customer Service Team for more information: customerservice@faxonfirearms.com 

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.

Why Faxon Pistol Barrels?

  • 4150 or 416-R Stainless - Only the best steels for durability, longevity, and accuracy. 
  • 9mm SAAMI Chambers - Superior accuracy with complete SAAMI compatibility & boring reliability. 
  • Tighter Tolerances - Drop-in, yet better fitment and lock-up. 
  • Conventional Rifling - Fully compatible with cast bullets
  • 11 Degree Target Crown

    If you own a shield and are not happy with it, Faxon has your back and you better believe it's worth it. If you don't believe me head over to my YouTube channel and watch my review video on the shield 9 drop in barrel. https://youtu.be/hgaJ5SUPBTo

    I prefer this over original barrel its really nice and love the thread protector. Tight tolerances. Great index for racking slide bc the sheild slide has little to no front serrations. Got 2 more after receiving my first. 1 for my other sheild and 1 for the fullsize MP. Great product! Thank you Faxxon family

    Faxon shield barrel

    Posted by Mason Schwartz on Apr 30th 2021

    So I got this barrel for my shield plus so I can run a compinsater and I really love it. There are some things about it tho that are not a problem but somewhat concerning. Like when I was threading my comp on to the barrel the threads where so tight as well as there is a little gap between the barrel and the compinsater but other then that it shoot wonderful and functions great in my shield plus.
