The Gunner profile is a blend of two of the best performing profiles of all time, Gov't and Pencil. Faxon's Gunner profile combines the durability of the Gov't profile with the weight savings and maneuverability of the Pencil profile. The Gunner profile brings the balance of the rifle back towards the shooter's body, limiting fatigue, and allowing for shooting, training, or hunting all day long.
Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured in-house in Cincinnati, Ohio, Faxon barrels are fully stress relieved, air-gauge tested, and 11 degree target crowned to ensure superior accuracy. Quality is imbued into our barrels from the beginning of the manufacturing process. Faxon starts with the best materials, either certified 4150 Mil-Spec steel or 416-R Stainless. From there, each barrel goes through a battery of tests at each operation until finished in Nitride and final inspected. All barrels are individually checked for headspace with precision PTG gauges.

Gas Block Dimple Service: If you're planning on using a set screw style of gas block with this barrel, we highly recommend choosing the dimple service. The dimple ensures that a set screw gas block is perfectly aligned with the gas port and cannot rotate or slide out of position under extreme use.
Feed Ramp Polishing Service: Same as the Feed Ramp Polishing service we provide separately, this can help smooth out feeding and possibly prevent some feeding issues. This service is best done with the upper receiver in hand to match the feed ramps in the barrel to the upper, but can be done with just the barrel.

I bought this to build out a tough but lighter rifle. Nothing crazy, I'm not buying Ti pins to replace steel and all- but this barrel went above and beyond. The thing swings better than my 12.5"! Plus, buying anything from Philip is a great experience, every time- or he'll make it right!
Great barrel in excellent condition. Bexar Arms has great communication and customer service. Quick shipping.
