One of the pillars of Faxon Firearms is our belief in the Fellowship of Firearms. 

We believe that firearms bring people together and create generational memories. Since the 19th century, the .22 LR has been a perennial favorite for beginning and seasoned shooters alike. That's why we're excited to bring you everything you love about our AR and pistol barrels to the beloved "22."

As with all Faxon Barrels, the "Faxon Rimfire" line is made in-house at our Cincinnati facility from raw bar stock, and undergo the same rigorous testing and quality control measures that have made our AR and pistol barrels a market favorite.

These barrels are made from 416-R stainless steel, given 6 Groove Rifling at a 1:16 twist, and a Recessed Target Crown. Barrels are Magnetic Particle Inspected, and are finished in either Salt Bath Nitride or PVD.

To give these Faxon Rimfire barrels our unique touch, we have adapted 3 of our most popular barrel profiles from the AR platform to rimfire: Pencil, Straight Fluted, and our patented Flame Fluted profile.

Faxon Rimfire barrels offer weight-savings to typical factory barrels for 10/22.

    Faxon 10-22 fluted barrel

    Posted by C Steven Strand on Jun 12th 2021

    I have been looking a long time for a quality made precision barrel that would be an accurate, shooter and finally found one for my like new 35 year old 10-22. Following the you tube supplied, The installation was quick and easy. Once installed my son and I headed for the range. This 10-22 now drives tacks, in fact 50 shots were covered by a dime. I am so happy with this I will be looking for for Faxon barrels for some of my other guns. Thank you Faxon for such great quality and appearance of my "NEW" 10-22
