Faxon Firearms states “Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured 100% in-house from cradle-to-grave, these 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 start. We start 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 by precision custom hardened gauges.”
