Faxon Firearms engineers and manufactures complete upper receivers that will fit any mil spec AR-15 lower platform. We are intensely focused on providing a new and innovative upper that will set the standard for the rest of the industry.



In 2011, Bob Faxon, a firearms enthusiast and lifelong shooter, had an idea to design an AR-15 upper with all the features that he wanted on his current ARs but didn’t have. In 2012 Faxon Firearms was born.

Bob set aside a part of Faxon Machining to begin the firearms business. Faxon Machining was started in 1978 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and over the years has served a wide range of industries such as defense, aerospace, medical, automotive, and oil and energy.

Faxon machining is ISO accredited and can put over a 100 years of machining experience with its experienced staff, operators, and engineers.
