This Faxon Firearms 5.56 AR-15 barrel features an integrally machined slim flash hider, so you don’t have to send your barrel and muzzle device off to a gunsmith, spend extra money, and wait a crazy amount of time to get your barrel pinned and welded to meet the overall 16” length. This gives you the lighter weight and better maneuverability of a shorter barrel without having to go through the NFA. The muzzle brake also features a slim outer diameter, so you can easily install and remove gas blocks. It features a mid-length gas system and pencil profile to reduce weight as much as possible.
