Great barrel November 14, 2016
Reviewer: Walter M from Desert Hot Springs, CA United States  
Ordered it from Red Barn and it was almost $10 less than from the manufacturer. Fast delivery and the barrel was well packaged. The barrel had and excellent finish and had absolutely no marks on it. It fit the Aero upper with no problems using a UTG Super Slim handguard. The entire build without an optic or magazime came in at just 6.2 pounds. Ran a 100 rounds through it this morning with no FTE or FTFS. Will definitely use Faxon products for my next build.

true light weight barrel April 11, 2016
Reviewer: C M from alexander, AR  
Most excellent barrel. Paired it with a 9 in. Alexander Arms fore end, it's like holding air in your left hand. TEST 30 quick Rds for heat then 10 rds for effect @ 200 yds held about 3 in groups. If your goal is to burn ammo as fast as you can reload this barrel might not be for you. If you want to move from target to target this is it, look no more!

Very light. Haven't accuracy tested it April 1, 2016
Reviewer: Isaac S. from North Carolina  
Still waiting for other parts to build an upper. This barrel is THIN! It is the lightest barrel i could find at 16" i have read mostly good things about its accuracy. It has a mid length gas system with NO gas block dimples. You will need either a clamp on gas block or a dimpling jig. It requires a .625 shoulder gas block and adjustable ones arent easy to find.
