Faxon Firearms Match Series 20" 6.5 Grendel Type II Rifle Length Heavy Fluted 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.
Safety Note: Choosing 6.5 Grendel comes with an added complication. There are “Type I” and “Type II” bolt/barrel specifications out there, and you CAN NOT mix and match parts for each of them without risk of damage and/or injury. Type II is by far the most popular configuration, but pay attention to what you are buying! A Type I bolt won’t chamber rounds in a Type II barrel at all. Even worse, a Type II bolt mated to a Type I barrel will create excessive headspace and result in a rifle that is dangerous to fire.

I purchased this 20" Grendel for an upper build for my AR15, and I am amazed at the quality and performance of this barrel. Way beyond my expectations. Took it to the range with my 6x24 scope and once sighted, I was getting sub moa accuracy at 100 yds. This barrel is a tack driver. You won't be disappointed. And it looks great too!!
