First Look: Faxon Firearms 350 Legend Rifle Barrels

posted on October 12, 2019

Developed by Winchester and launched in 2019, the 350 Legend is rapidly gaining favor as a hunting and sporting cartridge. Powerful and flexible, it’s a perfect fit for the rifles of today, as it will work especially well with the incredibly popular AR-15 platform. Now, Faxon Firearms, a company known for making quality rifle and pistol components, is excited to announce the company's new 350 Legend Line of AR-15 Barrels.

Building on Faxon’s popular Gunner line of barrels, the new 350 Legend barrels are designed to work with the straight walls of the 350 Legend cartridge. Faxon’s Gunner profile barrel is a blend of the Government and Pencil profile barrels. This profile, unique to Faxon, combines the durability of the Government profile with the weight savings and maneuverability of the Pencil profile. This profile brings the balance of the rifle back towards the shooter's body, limiting fatigue and allows you to enjoy shooting, training or hunting all day long without getting tired.

The new 350 Legend barrels are offered in three lengths. A 12.5-inch barrel is great great for AR-style pistols or or short-barreled rifles, and a 16-inch and 20-inch overall length is sized perfectly for rifles and carbines. Every Faxon -350 Legend AR barrel is magnetic particle-inspected and has an 11-degree target crown.

The Gas Pedal Drill

Training yourself to shoot better is the result of developing a higher skill level upon which you may rely. The higher your skill level, the greater your odds of performing well when they are called upon. Greater skill is born from greater control; the greater the control, the better the performance.
