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 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.

    20” heavy fluted, 223 Wilde, 5R

    Just got her put together today. Outstanding accuracy, Runs awesome. She is lightly lubed with LSA. No steel yet. But no farts, hiccups, or poopie the pants. All aero precision receivers. So far, only used good ammo and all is 1.25 or way less. Best is from IMI 77 at 0.375. Only 200 rounds so far but I’m tickled to death. Happy.

    Very high quality, no blemishes of any kind. Fit in the Rock River Arms Upper with no play, just a perfect fit. Shot 5 groups of 5 (25 total) all in 1" bull eye at 50 yds on 2nd magazine, after sighting in the scope. Im a happy camper with this barrel
