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 a Nickel Teflon coating that 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.

    Fluted barrel

    Posted by Christopher Krebs on Nov 22nd 2023

    This barrel was my first purchase ever from Faxon, to go along with my first ever build on my FIRST ever AR10. The fit and finish are superb. I knew it was going to be heavier than any of my M4s, and I was interested in how all of this was going to fit together. When I took it to the range to break in, dial in the adjustable gas block and zero my scope, I couldn't believe my astonishment at the groupings at just 100m. All sub MOA. ALL... I'd had tight groupings before with my M4 and while in the Army, but this...holy. crap. I had my wife get behind it and familiarize herself with it. Even SHE had the same sub groupings AND her zero is the same as mine! Since then, I've purchased a second barrel for her own .308/battle rifle build. We haven't had the chance to take it out yet to get it dialed in - but I am REALLY looking forward to experiencing the same performance Faxon's barrels have to offer!! The Faxon company has won me for life for all my builds!

    Love this barrel

    Posted by Chris on May 10th 2023

    After doing a lot of research, I found this company. This was the first of two barrels that I have purchased from Faxon. After all these years, I finally built my very first AR10. I wanted to build a rifle that was very accurate, and in this platform for quick follow up shots. I am shooting right at one MOA (random ammo) with this barrel and I am extremely happy! I'm currently working up my own load data for this rifle to ring out every bit of accuracy that I can. The fit and finish were fantastic. And while I love a great heavy barrel for precision work, I ordered a match series 16 inch .223 Wylde barrel in the gunner profile for a friend building her first carbine. The accuracy of that barrel is outstanding as well. While I have tried many other barrels for different firearms I have built over the years, I will now stick with Faxon for any future builds.

    What an outstanding barrel fit and finish is fantastic and price is just right with proper hand loads this barrel sheets three-quarter inch groups all day long out of my custom built Gas gun.
