Faxon to Launch 8.6 BLK Barrels

(CINCINNATI, OH) – Faxon Firearms, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based manufacturer of quality rifle and pistol components, and complete firearms, has announced the launch date for their new 8.6 Blackout Barrels.

Since the unveiling of their 1:3 twist 8.6 BLK barrels at SHOT Show 2022, a burning question for those interested in the new round developed by Q has been, “When will barrels be available?” Late last week, Faxon Firearms posted their 5.27.22 launch date on their 8.6 BLK landing page (https://faxonfirearms.com/86blk/).

Faxon Firearms will be releasing the following barrels on Friday:

For AR-10:

  • Faxon 8″ Big Gunner, 8.6 BLK, Pistol Length, 4150, Nitride
  • Faxon 12″ Big Gunner, 8.6 BLK, Pistol Length, 4150, Nitride
  • Faxon 16″ Big Gunner, 8.6 BLK, Carbine Length, 4150, Nitride

  • Faxon 12″ Modified Light Palma Profile, 8.6 BLK, 416-R, Nitride
  • Faxon 16″ Modified Light Palma Profile, 8.6 BLK, 416-R, Nitride

In addition to the 8.6 BLK barrels, Faxon will be launching 3 new AR-10 M-Lok Handguards, and AR-10 height gas blocks. More products for 8.6 BLK will continue to become available throughout the summer.

Faxon has also teased their complete firearms for 8.6 BLK, slated to be released during quarter 3 of this year.

Attendees of the NRA show in Houston this week will be able to see Faxon’s line of 8.6 BLK products first-hand at booth #3741.

Station IX Knives and More

Station IX deserves a few minutes of your time. According to their website:

We specialize in the development of unconventional tools and weapons for combatives and survival in austere environments and occupied zones.

According to me, they may very interesting defensive tools that are both historically inspired and informed by modern-day best practices at reasonable prices. For instance, their take on the OSS, the NUMBER FOUR, is both instantly recognizable as an iconic last-ditch weapon but also has modern cutlery steel, a well-sorted out kydex sheath, and an aestetic that blurs the line between new and old.

Shown: NUMBER 5 (top) and NUMBER 6 (bottom)

They also produce more modern knives like the NUMBER FIVE which is instantly recognizable as a Fred Perrin design. Even this knife seems give off the aura of being both vintage and something entirely new at the same time.

I guess what I am saying is Station IX is doing something new. They seem to be creating production knives that are both interesting in terms of design and function at a price that is competitive in their space.

Freidberg Fabrication is a custom woodturning/carpentry shop that makes all kinds of cool things like custom clubs, picks, batons, and more. One of their latest creations is a turned Spetsnaz Shovel. The turning looks great and enhances grip.

This was too cool not to share. These shovels are the ultimate in function over form… but no one says they can’t go just a little harder on the form part of the equation.
