Faxon Glock 48 Barrels: Key Benefits
The Faxon Match Series Glock 48 barrel delivers improved accuracy over stock Glock 48 barrels, owing to its 1:10 traditional rifling, consistently smooth bore, and 11-degree target crown.
An 11-degree target crown allows for quicker and more even gas dissipation, ensuring minimal interference with the bullet’s trajectory. Consequently, match-grade barrels can tighten groups by ¼ inch to 2 inches at 25 yards.
The Faxon barrel’s optimized chamber design guarantees reliable feeding and extraction, significantly reducing the risk of malfunction, particularly in high-pressure situations.
Superior Recoil Management
Faxon Match Series barrels inherently decrease recoil, facilitating faster and more precise follow-up shots. This advantage is especially beneficial for competitive shooters or those seeking to enhance their shooting speed and accuracy.
Faxon Match Series Glock 48 barrels come in a variety of finishes, lengths, and threading options, allowing for customization to suit individual requirements and preferences. Moreover, the threaded barrel option enables the attachment of suppressors or compensators, further expanding its adaptability.
Faxon also provides the EXOS compensator, explicitly designed to work seamlessly with their threaded barrels.
