U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Faxon Machining began back in 1978, generating components that have traveled to almost every single corner of our planet, and even off to Mars. In 2012, Faxon Firearms grew out as the brainchild of Co-owner Bob Faxon, who wanted to make an AR upper with the specs he wanted. The rest is history, and now Faxon Firearms is a substantial and properly-recognized producer of AR components, amongst quite a few other items. One particular of these other items is today’s study, a critique on Faxon’s threaded Glock 19 barrel.
Faxon GLOCK 19 Threaded Barrel
Calling it a threaded barrel is actually underselling it even though. Faxon did not hold back any options on this a single:
- Handgun Variety: G19
- Barrel Caliber: 9mm
- Barrel Profile: Flame Fluted, Drop In (Compatible with Gen 1-five)
- Barrel Material: 416-R Stainless Steel
- Barrel Twist: 1:10
- Muzzle Thread: 1/2×28 TPI
- Crown: 11-degree Target Crown
- Rifling Technique: Button Rifled, Completely Anxiety Relieved
- Rifling Variety: Standard (cast bullet compatible)
- Inside Finish: Salt Bath Nitride
- Outdoors Finish: Salt Bath Nitride & TiN PVD
Yes, it is gold (colored). That is the very first issue absolutely everyone notices and for fantastic explanation. This barrel stands out visually. That coating has utilitarian added benefits even though, like improved hardness, lubricity and put on resistance. It also cleans uncomplicated, which is good given that it gets blackened swiftly when shooting suppressed.
Prior to applying a threaded barrel, close inspection of the threading is crucial. Unsurprisingly, the threads had been clean, concentric and cost-free of burrs or rough edges. Even the thread protector is lovely.
Why made use of a threaded barrel? Accessories of course! I use a Tyrant Styles T-Comp on this Glock for variety entertaining, and routinely screw on an AAC TiRant suppressor. I have a bigger Glock 17 that lives permanently with a suppressor on, but this G19 frequently doubles as a carry gun. Swapping the threaded barrel out requires below twenty seconds. Obtaining typical height sights even though shooting suppressed does take some obtaining made use of to, and does no favors for shooting tight groups. If you are “combat” shooting, or leaning a lot more on muscle memory than visual, this presents no concern for shooting combat precise. Seriously a threaded barrel is just the important that unlocks a lot more versatile possibilities for your handgun.
The threads could get the focus, but how’s the other finish? The feed ramp is vitally vital to obtaining a wide selection of rounds to chamber appropriately. A ramp that is also steep can lead to misfeeds. A ramp that is rough or not slick adequate can likewise lead to the nose of the bullet to come to a screeching and premature halt. This is exactly where Faxon’s practical experience in precision machining and the TiN PVD coating combine to retain items operating slick. 4 forms of ammo, like a single significant-mouthed hollow point. Couple hundred rounds later (lots suppressed, and dirty), no failures to feed or extract.
As for accuracy, I do not shoot handguns from a benchrest. Whilst that is a decent way to test the possible of the gun (divided by the benchrest capability of the shooter), I choose a a lot more user-oriented strategy. Just place, shoot the gun at ~eight-10 yards (moderate pace) and ask your self, did these rounds go exactly where I count on? Is the group a cluster or does it appear like a shotgun pattern? I ran four forms of ammo via Faxon’s barrel (and AAC TiRant suppressor) and regardless of not obtaining suppressor height sights all four brands lumped collectively just fine.
Here’s some video with Faxon’s barrel and Tyrant Styles T-Comp:
Bottom line, Faxon is back at it once more. Their flame-fluted, Tin coated, threaded Glock 19 barrel delivers the benefits. There are (just a couple of) that are less expensive, but you will be challenging-pressed to discover greater. This barrel runs $209, verify it out!
