Faxon Firearms, the guys famous for the ARAK-21, have a great line of rifle barrels. They are having a Memorial Day Sale this weekend offering 10% off site wide, with 15% off all .308 barrels. Now is the time to buy!

Memorial Day Sale -1

I have been working on a budget .308 AR rifle project with Tridentis Tactical.  The center piece is the Faxon AR10 308 18 inch Medium contour Barrel.  It provides quality at a great value.  Barrels are one of the places you can’t cut corners in a build.


My first impression was that the finish was perfect, a work of art.  The fit to the Tridentis billet upper receiver was very good, tight enough to be accurate, no so snug we had to fight it in.

At a weight of 2.28 pounds, it has more heft than a pencil barrel without the front heavy pain of a match barrel.  Perfect for a gun you are going to carry around.  Ounces make pounds, pounds bring pain.
