Faxon 223 Wylde 14.5″ Gunner 5R Match Series Barrel

Faxon 223 Wylde 14.5″ Gunner 5R Match Series barrel takes their renowned performance and value up a notch.

Manufactured 100% in-house from gun-barrel-quality bar-stock, the Faxon 223 Wylde 14.5″ Gunner 5R Match Series Barrel starts with 416-R in the 5R rifling. The 5R rifling minimizes jacket deformation, increases velocity and ease of cleaning.  Read more about 5R rifling here. We chamber our Match Series in .223 Wylde, a hybrid chamber the 5R rifling takes full advantage of. Better accuracy through less bullet jump, but fully and individually MPI tested for your safety. After rigorous testing, the barrels are Nitride treated inside and out, locking in the bore and improving barrel life.

The Nickel Teflon coated extension maintains incredible dry lubricity, and corrosion resistance.  Combined, the Match Series of barrels are ready for when duty calls or the buzzer beeps with unrivaled performance value.

Just what is the Gunner profile?

The Gunner profile is a blend of two of the best performing profiles of all time, Government, and Pencil.

Proving every once and awhile, the Government can do something right, the Gunner profile from extension to gas block mimics that well-known taper.  Innovation then takes over and the Gunner moves to a .625″ gas block journal and our famed pencil profile out front.

Removing weight from the front of the barrel ensures maximum versatility and keeps material to the rear to maximize heat resistance and mitigate whip.
