NEW!! Faxon Firearms 18″ .308 AR-10 Stainless Steel Heavy Barrel

Posted on September 26th, 2014 by ar15news

Faxon Firearms has been teasing all of us with the possibility of a .308 version of their ARAK-21 upper. Just yesterday they came one step closer to what we’ve all been waiting for by revealing their new 18″ .308 AR-10 Stainless Steel Heavy Profile Barrel. While this barrel isn’t the same as what would be used in a .308 ARAK-21, it shows they are working on .308 components right now. As I predicted at the beginning of the year, this has been a huge year for the AR-10. So many companies have released .308 receiver sets, barrels, rails, etc. and it only makes sense to cap it off with Faxon Firearms. As with all Faxon Firearms barrels, the 18″ .308 Stainless Steel barrel is a very nicely made barrel that won’t break the bank. (20″ fluted and 18″ medium profile 4150 barrel pre-orders coming soon) You can see the details below as well as a couple pictures of the new barrel.
