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.

    This is the barrel I use in my competition AR. It is paired with a Superlative Titanium Gas Block. I use a 4x Acog for an optic, and have sub MOA at 100 yards. Very consistent and loves the 69 Grain SMK bullet. Have shot well over 1,000 rounds through it so far, no issues what-so-ever. Faxon is my go-to barrel manufacturer.

    16" Flame Fluted - Great Look, OK Machining

    Posted by Brandon on Mar 11th 2019

    First off, this is a beautiful barrel. The weight is good considering its match grade and the finish and fluting look awesome. My only complaint so far is that the gas port isn't top dead center and as such my gas block is slightly rotated. I've heard one other buyer complain about this issue as well, and although it probably wont affect the function of the barrel, it's also not something I would have expected at this price point. I havent had a chance to shoot it yet but will update if the barrel doesn't perform well.
