The Gunner profile combines the best features of both the government profile and pencil profile to create a barrel that's versatile and light up-front, while still being robust and resistant to heat. The Gunner's profile from the extension to the gas block mimics the well-known government taper. From there, the Gunner moves to a .625" gas block journal and Faxon®'s famed pencil profile out front. Less weight at the front of the barrel means added versatility. More weight at the rear of the barrel means added heat resistance and less whip. So you get the best of both.
A legacy of quality
Each Faxon Barrel is manufactured 100% in-house from mil-spec 4150 certified gun barrel steel. From there, each Barrel is then fully stress-relieved, air gauge-tested, and 11º target-crowned for superior accuracy. Finally, each one goes through meticulous testing before being finished in nitride. That means you can count on the highest level of performance.
