Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured in-house from cradle-to-grave, these 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 start. 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 by precision custom hardened gauges. 

Faxon's MATCH SERIES of barrels takes our renowned performance and value up a notch.

Manufactured 100% in-house from gun-barrel-quality bar-stock, the Match Series starts with 416-R in 5R rifling. 5R is a hybrid rifling, with lands opposite grooves and reduced sharp angles that reduces jacket deformation increasing velocity and easy cleaning. We chamber our Match Series in .223 Wylde, a hybrid chamber that the 5R rifling takes full advantage of. Better accuracy through less bullet jump, but fully and individually MPI tested for your safety. After rigorous testing, the barrels are Nitride treated inside and out, locking in the bore, improving barrel life, and keeping the elements at bay. 

The extension is coated in Nickel Teflon which maintains incredible dry lubricity, corrosion resistance, and with the coating, tightens up fit between the extension and receiver - again improving upon accuracy. Combined, the Match Series of barrels are ready for when duty calls or the buzzer beeps with unrivaled performance value.

    14.5" .223 Wylde barrel

    Posted by Christopher Krebs on Apr 16th 2024

    This is my 4th barrel I've ordered and installed on one of my rifles. As I've stated before, I never knew my accuracy could be even better. I've had the barrel for a little over three weeks now, and I've just gotten passed the 'break-in' period. Even from the first round fired, it was on point, and again, and again...and, oh no, not another one in the same point of impact. Faxon, you all do amazing work. From the finish of the nitriding, to the feed ramps, I am extremely satisfied with all your hard work in providing great products.

    223 Wylde match series, 5R

    Posted by Kon on Jul 30th 2020

    I have not installed it on my build as of yet. Upon initial inspection, packaging was protective of the contents. The nickel Teflon m4 ramps were clean and smooth. The quality of 5R rifling, finish and match series barrel have me highly anticipating the accuracy of this barrel. Lightweight pencil profile will also allow me to haul the rifle around for hours. Almost purchased the flame fluted model for looks but at the price point for the 5R/pencil profile/match series, the hand guard covered flutes was just not what I was looking for. Highly pleased with my first impressions.
