Faxon Firearms Now Offers AR-15 Barrels with Pinned Gas Blocks

Pinning your own gas block isn’t necessarily hard… if you have the right equipment. If you don’t or you just want to save some time, it can be nice to purchase a barrel with a pre-pinned gas block but options are few and far between. 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.

Faxon Firearms STREAMLINE CARBON Series Hand Guards

Faxon Firearms just released details for their new STREAMLINE CARBON Series Hand Guards.

We’re proud to announce our new STREAMLINE CARBON Series of Handguards for the AR-15.

Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of the STREAMLINE CARBON series of handguards for the AR-15. The STREAMLINE CARBON series of carbon fiber handguards melds extreme lightweight and functionality into a single rugged, easy-to-install M-LOK handguard. Mounted to a weapon, the shooter will see a dramatic increase in maneuverability and swing ability of their rifle compared to legacy metal options.

The STEAMLINE CARBON fuses Faxon’s patent-pending mounting architecture and quality machining with Lancer Systems carbon-fiber know-how. The rails mount to the AR-15 using the common mil-spec AR-15 barrel nut, ensuring anyone with standard tools can mount the rail quickly and easily. When mounted correctly, the rail is locked in to position across all three axis, ensuring rigged and rugged performance under the most demanding circumstances. The 15″ rail clocks in at less than 8 ounces in its standard configuration including all mounting hardware. An optional titanium barrel nut reduces weight further by ~.8 ounces.

The rails feature full-length Magpul M-LOK across all 8 faces of the octagonal handguard. Using an optional low-profile M-LOK rail, shooters have the option of mounting on-plane BUIS. Overall size balances a slim profile (OD is 2.05″) while being able to fit suppressors up to 1.6″ diameter.

“As shooters, we designed the STREAMLINE CARBON series of handguards like our GUNNER barrels. We wanted all the functionality possible while reducing weight to the maximum extent possible,” commented Bob Faxon, President of Faxon Firearms. “Usability and modularity were absolutely critical to our design process. We want shooters to pick up the STREAMLINE CARBON option not just for its weight, but for superior utility for mounting accessories while handling arduous courses of fire.”

The STREAMLINE CARBON handguard will launch at Rainier Arms in a 15″ configuration. 13.3″ and 10.2″ lengths are in-production and will be available Q1/Q2 2017. The 13.3″ is the ideal companion for pinned and welded 14.5″ barrels, giving just enough space for the hand to extend all the way to the end without being concussed by muzzle devices. Retail for the carbon-fiber rails is set at $349, $339, and $329, respectively.

STREAMLINE CARBON Features:

Extreme lightweight without sacrificing strength, rigidity, or practicality.
M-LOK attachment across 8 facets.
Dramatically increases maneuverability of the weapon over legacy metal rails.
Low heat transfer for handling xtreme duty cycles.
Fits common suppressors under-rail
Attaches with standard armorer’s wrenches and tools.
Co-witness iron sights and optics/lasers*
*Requires optional low-profile M-LOK rail adapters.
