Faxon Firearms Products To Come

A little something just for SHOT Show

I had the opportunity tody to speak with Bob Faxon owner of Faxon Firearms. Much of our conversation surrounded the last year and the products of the coming year. To begin Faxon is now selling AR15 uppers which will retail at $699.00. They sport free floated barrels in a heavy profile. Bob emphasized the prospective purchaser can have it made with just about any configuration they desire. This is one thing that sets Faxon apart. How many companies do you know that allow you to choose how you want a cataloged upper setup for you. Not many unless it’s a total custom shop.

In the photo above please note the upper rails just above the new AR upper. These new handguards come in aluminum or carbon fiber. Both are very lightweight but the carbon fiber certainly looks good.These are prototypes so there will likely be small changes. The attachment points are M-Lok.


Now you probably are wondering about the feature photo as well as the one just above. Well those were made just for SHOT to show some of the work Faxon can do. We were actually joking about them being called the cartel model–unofficial of course. Up close the nickel finish and wood look really good. Not what you would carry in the woods of course. These are not rifles that will be made but Bob told me if someone wants one they sure will make one for you!

In the last year Faxon has released a large number of new products. They are now up to 40 assorted barrel styles with most available in the caliber of your choice. As I started to take photos of the barrel rack all the lights went out. My luck but of course they can be seen on the Faxon website.

Bob told me they will most likely be releasing one new product per month over the next year. That is a good number of new guns and parts! One thing is certain if you have a problem with a Faxon firearm Bob Faxon is very dedicated to making sure the customer is satisfied.

      I have to admit I kinda like the idea of wood furniture on an AR. Probably because of the old Bakelite AR 10 furniture.

    The article starts off talking with Bob Faxon, but every other reference is to Bill Faxon. Was there a relative named Bill there, or just Bob?

    • Just Bob. My spell check plugin does that sometimes. I was writing earlier using Bill so it just decided to change as I typed. Never noticed it.
