Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured 100% in-house from cradle-to-grave, these barrels are fully stress relieved, air-gauge tested, and 11 degree target crowned to ensure superior accuracy.
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 100% 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.

amazing barrel for the price. fast shipping, good packaging the barrel was perfect right out of the bag, very good tolerances, super tight fit in my aero precision upper. excelent maching on the flutes, this barrel looks good on your rifle. gas block was super tight fit, could probably run without the set screws! all in all with the ability to get a headspaced bolt hand fit with the barrel for the price they charge this is a great buy. i was able to get 1/2 moa with 77 gr loads and saw closer to 1 moa with 55 gr but very pleased definately worth it i will be picking one up in 6.8 spc for my next build
This barrel is exceptionally made with clean flutes and finish. Faxon heavy barrels are my go to on all my ar builds
This barrel is very nicely done. The finish is excellent, the flutes have the edges broken so there are no sharp corners. It balances well. The gas block diameter is dead on. The only small quibble is the aft OD of the barrel extension is chamfered,. OD chamfers going into a tight bore tend to pull up a burr. A radiused edge would be better, as it will not raise a burr.
Beautiful fit & finish @ 1/2 the price of other high end barrels. Can't go wrong with this barrel !!
Upon opening the packaging, I could immediately notice the attention to detail that went into the manufacturing of this barrel. There are no imperfections in the rifling, crowning, chamber or finish whatsoever. Even during break-in the barrel cycled every variety of .223 and 5.56 I put through it. This is definitely capable of sub MOA grouping even with lower end ammunition. I was able to put 4 rounds of Black Hills 77gr SMK 5.56 in a 0.4" group at 100 yards from a bench rest. The fluting is extremely efficient at dissipating heat; the difference was hugely noticeable over the factory barrel. Pair all of this with the fact that Faxon has some of the best customer service in the industry and you can't go wrong.
