Faxon Firearms Glock Barrels

One of the greatest things about Glocks is how thoroughly they can be customized. Whether you want to replace the trigger, add a grip sleeve, or Cerakote the slide, there’s something out there to get it done. But if you’re interested in a different barrel, does it really make sense to go with an unknown or unproven manufacturer? Why not go with a proven pro? Something you might not know is that Faxon Firearms manufactures high-quality Glock barrels. Faxon is a trusted manufacturer known for their attention to detail and dedication to strict quality control.

From Faxon Firearms regarding their line of Glock barrels:

Faxon’s Match Series Pistol Barrels for G17 / Glock 17 are machined 100% in-house from stress-relieved 416-R stainless steel. These barrels are then given a black Nitride or PVD coating to increase lubricity, barrel life, and resistance to surface wear. All barrels are conventionally rifled to allow a wider range of ammunition to be used, including cast lead. The barrels drop into factory-spec slides with no gunsmithing required. Better-than-factory tolerances ensure a consistent, tighter lockup than OEM.
