Faxon Firearms Announces New Match Series Barrels

Monday, June 19th, 2017

(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 Announces Expansion of MuzzLok with Two New Muzzle Devices

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

(CINCINNATI, OH) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of two new MuzzLok® muzzle devices, the GUNNER 3-Port Muzzle Brake and FLAME Tri Prong Flash Hider. Available for order today, the new muzzle devices expand upon Faxon’s originally invented MuzzLok® system which has included the LOUDMOUTH single-port brakes. MuzzLok® muzzle devices do not require crush washers to mount and time a device.

The GUNNER and FLAME are duty-ready in any condition. Both muzzle devices are manufactured from gun-barrel quality steel and QPQ salt bath nitride finished to match our barrels, maximize durability, and increase corrosion resistance.

The GUNNER 3-Port Muzzle Brake was designed by Faxon’s competition shooting staff to blend usability, versatility, and recoil reduction. For all barrel lengths, the GUNNER reduces recoil by more than 50%. Changing objectives, the FLAME flash hider virtually eliminates secondary ignitions at the muzzle, making muzzle flash nearly nonexistent.

“We are thrilled to be expanding the MuzzLok® line of products with the GUNNER and FLAME devices. Both meet shooters’ objectives for versatility and recoil or flash reduction,” said Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Development. “The GUNNER and FLAME for 5.56 are just the first of many more devices to come using MuzzLok® technology.”

The two muzzle devices are designed for employment on 5.56 NATO / .223 Remington weapon systems. Both feature concentric 1/2×28 TPI threads for matching up to any commonly threaded barrel. Retail for both is set at $59.99, including the MuzzLok® nut. The GUNNER and FLAME are available directly from Faxon and shipping soon to Faxon’s dealer network.
