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.
Faxon Firearms barrels are manufactured 100% in-house under ISO:9001 and AS:9100 (pending) quality certifications. The barrels are button-rifled and inspected over 15 times before it ever leaves the plant. Each barrel is air-guage tested to ensure superior accuracy.
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.
Initial testing has groups at 1.5 MOA with Federal Match ammo. Expect more on this later.
