The Gunner profile is a blend of two of the best performing profiles of all time, Gov't and Pencil.
Proving that every once and awhile, the Government can do something right, the Gunner's profile from the extension to the gas block mimics that well-known taper. From there, innovation takes over and the Gunner moves to a .625" gas block journal and our famed pencil profile out front.
Removing the weight from the front of the barrel ensures maximum versatility and keeps material to the rear to maximize heat resistance and mitigate whip.
Faxon has taken them a step further, adding in their patent-pending permanently attached SLIM muzzle devices. Shooters can choose from a three port muzzle device or three-prong flash hider, both allowing the full assembly and disassembly of gas blocks and barrel nuts. Shooters are forever free to change their weapon's configuration without having to go to a gunsmith.
