Faxon 5.56 NATO 11.5″ Gunner Barrel
Faxon 5.56 NATO 11.5″ Gunner, fully stress relieved, air-gauged, and 11 degree target crowned to ensure superior accuracy.
Manufactured 100% in-house from gun-barrel-quality bar-stock, the Faxon 5.56 NATO 11.5″ Gunner Barrel starts with 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium Mil-Spec steel. From there, the barrel goes through a battery of tests at each operation until finished in Nitride and final inspected. This beautiful 5.56 NATO 11.5″ Gunner barrel is individually checked for headspace by precision custom hardened gauges.
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.
Behind the gas block will be a Government profile tapering to a shoulder and 1.1″ journal .625 gas block. In front of the gas block, the barrel will continue straight to a 1/2×28 muzzle with full shoulder.
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.

*As this barrel is likely to be used in full-auto applications, we are opting to stick with a 5.56 chambering to ensure absolute safety for our customers.
** Due to the short dwell of the barrel, the gas port will be larger than most barrels. Customers are encouraged to use an adjustable gas block for optimum functionality.
