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:

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.

Fortunately, Faxon Firearms is now offering a selection of their AR-15 barrels available with pinned gas blocks already installed.


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.
