If you're looking for a more robust mounting method for your
gas block... look no further. Pinning your gas block, in addition to the
use of set screws, gives the user the extra piece of mind that your gas
block won't shift or loosen while firing.
We took some of our most popular barrel models and took the biggest
headache out of pinning your gas block by pre-notching the gas block
journal and drilling corresponding holes in the included low profile gas
Each Pinned Gas Block Barrel comes with the pin, as well as a gas
block. Gas blocks are hand-tightened to the barrel for shipping.
The Gunner profile is a blend of two of the best performing profiles
of all time, Gov't and Pencil. Faxon's Gunner profile combines the
durability of the Gov't profile with the weight savings and
maneuverability of the Pencil profile. The Gunner profile brings the
balance of the rifle back towards the shooter's body, limiting fatigue,
and allowing for shooting, training, or hunting all day long.
Faxon Firearms barrels are the pinnacle of value. Manufactured
in-house in Cincinnati, Ohio, Faxon barrels are fully stress relieved,
air-gauge tested, and 11 degree target crowned to ensure superior
accuracy. Quality is imbued into our barrels from the beginning of the
manufacturing process.. We start with the best materials, either
certified 4150 Mil-Spec steel or 416-R Stainless. From there, each
barrel goes through a battery of tests at each operation until finished
in Nitride and final inspected. All barrels are individually checked for
headspace with precision PTG gauges.
