Greetings from Faxon Firearms!

Ask Us Anything!

That’s awesome that you are here! Welcome.

Do you offer a Mil/Leo/Fire discount?


#4

#5

#6

Found it. Done and done. Thank you Sir.


#7

Glad to have such a reputable company here in the group. We have sold your barrels in the past, great products!


#8

Is it necessary to check head space on a new build? Also, can I use a .223 go-no on a 5.56 to check the head space?


#9

Yes, one should ALWAYS check headspace, even if picking up parts from the same manufacturer. Tolerance stack can lead to big booms.

Yes, you can use a .223 Remington guage set, but the no-go will not be as long as 5.56 NATO. What may check as no-go with the gauges may actually be good to shoot if the gauges close and its tight.


#10

Pretty awesome faxon is here answering


#11

Just saw your net 14.5 inch barrels with pinned breaks.
I’m planning to get one for my next, lightweight build!


#12

Any chance of Faxon coming out with a 223 Wylde Chambered barrel?


#13

We’re honored to be included in the build!


#14

We’re staying mum on the topic for now. We make .223 Wylde for a variety of OEMs, but prefer the 5.56 NATO chambering for compatibilty and safety purposes.


#15

Any ETA when you will be getting your carrier completion kits in or do I need to drive up to your shop and ninja one? :smiling_imp:


#16

Any chance of seeing some 6.5 barrels from you guys?


#17

They currently have a survey on their website asking what future products you would like to see from them. It’s right on their front page at http://faxonfirearms.com/. Here is the link in case you are lazy like I am… :smiley: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C8NPSMD


#18

Thanks. I haven’t been to their website in a few weeks.


#19

Yes. We have released some to production. May be a bit as we get through other barrels, but they will be completed.


#20

Just got a Faxon pencil barrel mid gas, your light BCG and your light low profile gas block, they all look GREAT! the question I have is, I shoot M193 and M855 and equivalent reloads most of the time, do I need to use an adjustable gas block or will my bolt velocity be ok with these items as listed (Car buffer and spring).
Thank You
