Faxon Firearms Releases New
.308 Winchester Pencil Profile Barrels

(CINCINNATI, OH) – (ArmsVault.com) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of Faxon’s famed Pencil profile barrels for the .308 Winchester. The new .308 Winchester pencil barrels are the lightest available for the caliber, yet maintain maximum versatility for all applications.

Developed upon Faxon’s solid foundation of 5.56 pencil barrels, the .308 Winchester Pencil barrels focus on lightweight performance for the AR10 platform. The 16” and 18” rifle barrels are each less than 2 lbs. The 20” model is only 2.07 lbs.

The barrels feature a 1/10 twist, rifled 100% in-house by Faxon under our numerous quality certifications. For maximum versatility, the barrels are chambered in .308 Winchester and feature concentric 5/8×24 threads with a relieved shoulder capped off with an 11-degree target crown.  All .308 Winchester barrels are manufactured from certified military-grade gun-barrel quality 4150 steel and are individually magnetic particle inspected for safety.  

“.308 ARs have historically been heavy weapons,” stated Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Management. “Faxon wants to continue challenging that paradigm through its pencil profile. With these barrels, sub 5lbs battle rifles are within reach.”

The new .308 Winchester pencil barrels are available today from Faxon and its dealer network. MSRP is $259, $269, and $279 for 16”, 18”, and 20”, respectively.
