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. 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 a Nickel Teflon coating that 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.

Fantastic performance. Preliminary testing exceeded my expectations for this caliber and barrel length combo. Sub-MOA at 300yds, easy hits out to 900yds. No doubt it's a tack driver, and excited to get a scope and range card dialed in and see just how good it can be at 1000yds or beyond.
Recieved this barrel and it looked like it had been shot 100 times or more, it had debris all down the barrel and when a patch was pulled through it looked like I had cleaned 50year old rust off a piece of farm equipment. Finally got in touch with customer service and was told it was left over nitride process yadadada and that if they sent me another it may or may not be better. Took their word for it and shot it, surprisingly shot decent def moa but........started having problems charging 1st round and having sporadic ftf issues. Ruined a whole box of ammo through the process and found that the barrel has absolutley zero chamfering/angle to the entrance of the chamber so longer bullets( hornady black 140gr hollow point or 147gr eldx) jamb into the flat wall of barrel causing it to either jamb completley or deform bullet tips. Some rounds had the bullets jammed so hard it pushed them down into the case farther. Customer service is all but non existent....took over a month to get a response about the flat wall issue and that response was that they are constantly working on improvements but they dont think this is a problem. All the other barrels I have, high end and low end have a generous angle cut and have zero of these issues.
