Faxon Firearms 16" 9mm Light Tapered AR-15 Barrel
Manufacturing of Faxon barrels begins and ends in their Cincinnati, Ohio facility under ISO 9001/9100 quality certifications. Each barrel they produce is fully stress relieved, air-gauge tested, and 11-degree target crowned to ensure superior accuracy.
Crafted from the best materials, either certified 4150 MIL-SPEC steel or 416R stainless, each barrel undergoes rigorous quality controls before QPQ finishing and final inspection. Once finished, each barrel is examined for proper headspace using precision custom hardened gauges.
NOTE: Faxon Firearms barrels are designated by their legal length. The chamber of pistol caliber carbine barrels are built into the barrel extension area, making them about ~1" shorter than centerfire rifle barrels.

Ratings & Reviews
Hit or miss quality and accuracy, even for 9mm

I've purchased 3 of these barrels over the last 8 months. 2 had mediocre accuracy, 6" groups at 50 yards, but this one was terrible. 12" groups at 50 yds. I tried many types of ammo, same result. If your looking for accuracy, this isn't it. Go with a JP or MBX.
Accurate as expected !! No Regrets !!

Bought this barrel for my 9mm build. No regrets with my purchase. Accurate as expected with no issues 500 rounds so far with handloads. Shooting 124 FMJ bullets with W231 powder. Wish I had bought 2 while they were on sale. However, bought another at regular price to build my second. Barrel shoots very accurate at 25 and 50 yards. Very tight group.
This barrel performed with several brands of ammunition (1K rounds +) with no failures. The fit was perfect on an Odinworks upper, the finish/machining is also perfect.
