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° target crowned to ensure superior accuracy.
Quality is imbued into Faxon barrels from the start. Each starts with certified 4150 Mil-Spec steel, then goes through a battery of tests at each operation until finished in Nitride and given a final inspection.
All barrels are individually checked for headspace by precision PTG gauges.
