We recently learned that Faxon Firearms not only makes rifle barrels but pistol barrels as well. In fact thier Glock 17 Barrels offer a great opportunity for Glock 17 owners to upgrade their barrel without breaking the bank.
Here is the press release from Faxon Firearms:
Faxon Firearms has topped the industry for some time with its AR15 barrels, handguard, BCGs, and even complete firearms. That same Faxon quality is present in Faxon’s pistol barrels as well – specifically (though by no means limited to) their Glock 17 barrels.
Here is a quick rundown:
Faxon Pistol Barrels for Glock 17 / G17 are machined 100% in-house from stress relieved 4150 CMV steel (Duty Series) or 416-R stainless steel (Match Series).
We give the barrels black Nitride or PVD coating to increase lubricity, resistance to surface wear, and barrel life. We conventionally rifle all our pistol barrels to allow for a broader range of compatible ammunition, including cast lead.
There is no need for gunsmithing. These barrels drop quickly into factory-spec slides. We ensure a consistent tighter lockup than OEM with better-than-factory tolerances.
