Faxon Firearms Announces New Match Series Barrels

(CINCINNATI, OH) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of Faxon’s latest series of barrels – the Match Series. The new Match Series of barrels takes Faxon’s renowned performance and value up a notch.

All Match Series barrels start as 416-R gun-barrel-quality stainless steel. Manufactured 100% in-house, the Match Series features 5R rifling for increased velocity, decreased bullet deformation, and ease of cleaning. All barrels are fully stress relieved and finally salt bath nitride coated inside and out for corrosion resistance and longevity.  All Match Series barrels further feature NP3 coated extensions. The nickel-Teflon coating smooths feed ramps and its self-lubricating properties increase reliability.

The Match Series will be available across all calibers that Faxon manufactures including 300 BLK, .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 Grendel, and newly released .223 Wylde. All calibers feature 1/8” twist except for .308 in 1/10”. Available contours will include Faxon’s famed pencil profile, Gunner, heavy fluted, and Flame fluted barrels. Lengths will vary by caliber.

“We are thrilled to formally include .223 Wylde on our production barrels.” stated Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Management. “The .223 Wylde chamber takes advantage of the Match Series’ 5R rifling, 416-R Stainless Steel, and NP3 extension to enhance accuracy while staying compatible with both .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO charged loads.”

Faxon’s various stainless-steel barrels will all be upgraded to the Match Series of barrels over the next few months. Retail pricing for the barrels starts at $179 up to $409, depending on length, caliber, and profile. Launch profiles include 16” Gunner, 18” & 20” Heavy Fluted, and 20” Flame Fluted, all in .223 Wylde.

First Ever – AK Gunstruction User’s Choice Build – May 2017

Gunstruction’s last big release brought with it the ability to build virtual AKs. Now, about a month later, Gunstruction has compiled the parts selected most often by Gunstruction users into a single User’s Choice Build. This is not intended to be a cohesive build (though it may work out that way) but rather a compilation of the most popular parts in various categories based on Gunstruction’s data. It is an interesting window in consumer trends.

We don’t have any trends to compare this build against since this is the very first AK User’s Choice Build but there are still some interesting observations we can make. Magpul continues to dominate the grip and stock categories among Gunstruction users, even when they are building AKs. It’s also interesting that a 7.62×39 AK was chosen as the most popular starting platform.


Sneak Peek: CDM Gear MTRS Light Mount for Mossberg 590 Shockwave

CDM Gear gave us a sneak peek of their upcoming MTRS Light Mount for the popular Mossberg 590 Shockwave. The MTRS provides two sling mounting options (for slings up to 1.25″ wide) and a rail section for affixing a pistol light the like the Streamlight TLR-1 shown in the image below. The rail can be placed on either side of the shotgun to accommodate right and left handed shooters.

The MTRS is designed to mount between the barrel and magazine tube so it can not rotate under tension. The mount is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and will have a hard anodized finish.

These mounts should be available in July with an MSRP just below $40. CDM Gear doesn’t offer pre-orders but they will notify you when the mounts are available if you email shockwavemount@cdmgear.com (notification only, no product questions will be answered at this email address).


PHLster TuckStrut and Classic Holster

PHLster released details today for two products that they have been teasing for weeks – the TuckStrut and full size Classic Holster.

The TuckStrut is a new piece of hardware developed by PHLter and Henry Holsters. The strut has an integral wing feature that serves to turn the butt of the handgun in toward the wearer for better concealment. It is tuckable and completely ambidextrous for use on right or left hand holsters. You can expect to see the new TuckStrut on PHLster holsters as well as in use as an OEM product for other holster makers.

PHLster also released news on their first full size holster in some time. The Classic was originally available through their custom shop but it is now available as a production offering with a number of improvements. The holsters features the aforementioned TuckStrut and a tear drop shaped in-molded ramp on the rear of the holster that work together to ensure that the grip of the gun stays firmly against the wearer for concealment. The Classic is molded for a Glock 17 but with an open muzzle so it also fits G26, G19, G19 with external comps, and G34 sized guns.

The TuckStrut and Classic are in stock and available at PHLsterHolsers.com.
