General Barrel Info: The Barrel on an AR-15 pistol operates through a 'gas impingement' system, where gas is tapped from off from the barrel and cycle back through a connected gas system, to help the bolt carrier in unlocking and extracting a spent cartridge. Pistol length AR-15 barrels come in two gas lengths, Pistol, Carbine, & Mid-Length. AR-15 Pistol barrels can be chambered in a variety of different calibers, spanning from rifle to pistol cartridges. Thanks to the modularity of the AR-15 platform, your next pistol will be incredibly easy.
About This Barrel: Faxon Firearms barrels are some of the best bang for the buck barrels available. Their quality is way above their price point. Faxon Firearms barrels are manufactured in-house in Ohio from the best materials, either certified 4150 Mil-Spec steel or 416-R Stainless. Barrels are fully stress relieved, air-gauge tested, and 11-degree target crowned for superb accuracy. This 9Ã® 300 Black Out barrel has a QPQ nitride finish and sports a gunner profile. The Gunner profile is a hybrid between the government profile and the pencil profile. What you get with the gunner profile is a barrel that is strong and accurate like a government profile barrel, but is lighter and more maneuverable like a pencil barrel.
