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

    6mm ARC 16” Gunner Bbl.

    Posted by William Bell on Mar 18th 2021

    I was interested enough in the 6mm ARC to start putting an upper together. The increase in firearms sales in early 2021 has made putting an ARC together an exercise in patients. I got on the notifications list and as soon as Faxon had a Bbl I ordered it. Shipping was fast and I had an upper with a 5x25 Burris scope attached. I was on the waitlist for reloading dies from two companies. I had the carbine but no ammunition or the means to make it. A friend of mine was also interested in the 6mm ARC and was able to find two boxes of Hornady Black. I was able to that ammunition from him and we sighed it in at 100 yards. During the sight in I shot a three shot group at 0.6”. Two days later I was able to shoot at 300 and 500 yards. All rounds connected to the steel plates. With my very limited experience I can tell you that this is going to be one of my favorite carbines. The Faxon Bbl is performing. I just need to find more ammunition!
