 Fitment note:  Faxon Firearms M&P Shield barrels are not drop-in compatible with M&P Shield pistols that have a Loaded Chamber Indicator lever installed (such as the California compliant variation).  If you have a pistol with the LCI lever installed (or are unsure if your pistol is drop-in compatible) please contact our Customer Service Team for more information: customerservice@faxonfirearms.com 

Faxon's Match Series Pistol Barrels for Smith and Wesson/M&P are machined 100% in-house from stress-relieved 416-R stainless steel. These barrels are then given a black Nitride or PVD coating to increase lubricity, barrel life, and resistance to surface wear. All barrels are conventionally rifled to allow a wider range of ammunition to be used, including cast lead. The barrels drop into factory-spec slides with no gunsmithing required. Better-than-factory tolerances ensure a consistent, tighter lockup than OEM.

    Excellent product. Highly recommended.

    I purchased two match barrels and found how excellent they were. My groups are way tighter than they had been with the factory one. I'm glad for such an awesome upgrade for my M&P Shield Plus 9mm.

    As I expected from a reputable company…match barrel for my Shield Plus not only looks nice but I believe it’s an upgrade from the stock barrel. Groups are a little tighter. Keep up the good work !!!

    I bought this barrel to replace my original barrel, give it a custom look, and because it’s a match grade barrel. Wow what a difference! I was very happy with the accuracy and performance of this barrel and have recommend to my friends if they are looking for a replacement to give Faxon a try.
