Faxon Match Series 18", Gunner, 6.5 Grendel, Mid-Length, 416-R Stainless, QPQ Nitride, 5R, Nickel Teflon Extension AR-15 BarrelFaxon
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.

I waited forever for this 18" barrel to be in stock, glad I waited. Perfect length for me, running suppressed and shoots great. Sighted in unsuppressed, I was blown away. Glad it uses the midlenght gas system. Paired with an H2 buffer, and AIM surplus BCG, no issues.
I only use Faxon barrels for my premium builds. These barrels are of exceptional quality.
It was a long wait, awesome barrel. It works and looks good too.
I have built two of these and several friends have followed suit because these kick some serious booty and they are not picky about ammo.
4 stars simply because it hasn't been installed yet. I fully expect it to perform up to Faxon's reputation...or I wouldn't have purchased it in the first place
Awesome barrel. It's going hunting with me from now on !!
Incredibly fast shipping/delivery. Excellent workmanship and finish. Wish I could offer more, but still finishing off the build. So far, they have my repeat business. Already recommended to friends.
Fast shipping, great product, great pricing. What’s not to love?
Excellent quality, perfect fit on the upper
