Faxon Firearms AR-10 16" Big Gunner 8.6BLK, Carbine Gas, 1:3T Nitride Barrel
General Barrel Info: The barrel on an LR-308 originally operates under a 'gas impingement' system' by tapping gas off of the barrel and cycling it back through the gas system to assist the bolt carrier in unlocking and extracting the spent cartridge. LR-308 Barrels come in four different specifications for gas systems, Pistol, Carbine, Mid-Length, and Rifle. LR-308 Barrels vary between profiles as well as from Government, to Heavy, and Slim. Thanks to the modularity of LR-308, you can choose different calibers starting with the barrel, each with its specific twist rates. Choosing your barrel for your next LR-308 build has never been easier.

About This Barrel: This barrel from Faxon Firearms is chambered in 8.6 Blackout which channels rotational energy to increase energy on-target. These barrels have been air-gauge and MPI tested to ensure accuracy and reliability. It is machined from 4150 CMV with a salt bath nitride finish to make it durable. It has a big gunner profile and operates on a carbine gas system.
About the Profile: Gunner - 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.
Barrel Classification: Rifle
Length: This Barrel is designated as a rifle barrel with an overall 16" length.
Caliber: 8.6 Blackout was developed by Kevin Brittingham and his team at Q. It is often referred to as 300 Blackouts big brother and it's easy to see why. What 300BLK provided to the AR-15 platform, 8.6BLK does for AR-10s. The parent case being 6.5 Creedmoor, 8.6BLK is trimmed down and necked up for a .338 projectile. Heavier mass means more energy transfer on target. Barrels are being run with a fast 1:3 twist, creating devastating terminal performance.
Material: 4150 CrMoV - Chrome-Moly Vanadium, or simply "CMV", is the official mil-spec gun steel developed by Colt Firearms for the military-issued M16 and M4. It contains the same elements as 4150 steel. It also contains Vanadium. Vanadium significantly increases the strength, hardness, and high-temperature stability of the steel.
Finish: Nitride - Nitriding is a process during manufacturing that diffuses nitrogen into the steel to make a case-hardened surface for improved resistance and strength. A Nitrided barrel typically has a gloss black texture.
