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.


Why Faxon Pistol Barrels?

  • 416-R Stainless - Only the best steels for durability, longevity, and accuracy. 
  • 9mm SAAMI Chambers - Superior accuracy with complete SAAMI compatibility & boring reliability. 
  • Tighter Tolerances - Drop-in, yet better fitment and lock-up. 
  • Conventional Rifling - Fully compatible with cast bullets
  • 11 Degree Target Crown

    Fit M&P Shield Plus

    Posted by Shah F. on May 7th 2022

    I got the TiN coated barrel for my MP Shield Plus to replace its ported barrel. I shot 250 rounds to break it in. Performed flawless. The only reason I am giving it 4 star is because the barrel scratched heavily and I wish I had purchased dark color. Other than that it is awesome.

    Purchased this for my M&P Shield CA Compliant pistol and just realized we have an issue. Am going to have to figure this out now... It's a pretty barrel, good quality.

    Take my money

    I bought a Faxon barrel for my Glock 17. My accuracy went way up. So I figured it would help with my Shield 9mm. Yep! I oiled it a bit and just dropped it in. Racked it a bunch of times. It fit and locked up so perfect. It’s shooting much better then the stock barrel and it looks amazing. Stop thinking and start shooting.

    M&P Shield Barrel

    Posted by Chris on May 14th 2021

    REALLY solid metal work, looks phenomenal, accuracy was on point, and very quick shipping. My only feedback I have is this barrel will not fit on CA compliant shields due to the "loaded chamber indicator". Unless I missed it somewhere I don't believe faxon stated that anywhere before purchasing.

    S&W shield barrel replacement

    Posted by Eric on Apr 15th 2021

    I purchased this barrel because of the great reputation Faxon has. I had never purchased anything from Faxon in the past, but I can assure you this barrel will not be the last product I buy. The fit was perfect. The accuracy was phenomenal. I replaced my ported Performance Center barrel, because having a defensive handgun with a ported barrel has proven very loud in the past.
