FAXON FIREARMS NEWS RELEASE – Streamline Carbon Handguards – Sub 8 Oz 15″ M-LOK

The following is a Press Release from Faxon Firearms:

Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of the STREAMLINE CARBON series of handguards for the AR-15. The STREAMLINE CARBON series of carbon fiber handguards melds extreme lightweight and functionality into a single rugged, easy-to-install M-LOK handguard. Mounted to a weapon, the shooter will see a dramatic increase in maneuverability and swing ability of their rifle compared to legacy metal options.

 The STEAMLINE CARBON fuses Faxon’s patent-pending mounting architecture and quality machining with Lancer Systems carbon-fiber know-how.  The rails mount to the AR-15 using the common mil-spec AR-15 barrel nut, ensuring anyone with standard tools can mount the rail quickly and easily. When mounted correctly, the rail is locked in to position across all three axis, ensuring rigged and rugged performance under the most demanding circumstances. The 15″ rail clocks in at less than 8 ounces in its standard configuration including all mounting hardware. An optional titanium barrel nut reduces weight further by ~.8 ounces.

The rails feature full-length Magpul M-LOK across all 8 faces of the octagonal handguard. Using an optional low-profile M-LOK rail, shooters have the option of mounting on-plane BUIS. Overall size balances a slim profile (OD is 2.05″) while being able to fit suppressors up to 1.6″ diameter.

 “As shooters, we designed the STREAMLINE CARBON series of handguards like our GUNNER barrels. We wanted all the functionality possible while reducing weight to the maximum extent possible,” commented Bob Faxon, President of Faxon Firearms. “Usability and modularity were absolutely critical to our design process. We want shooters to pick up the STREAMLINE CARBON option not just for its weight, but for superior utility for mounting accessories while handling arduous courses of fire.”

 The STREAMLINE CARBON handguard will launch at Rainier Arms in a 15″ configuration. 13.3″ and 10.2″ lengths are in-production and will be available Q1/Q2 2017. The 13.3″ is the ideal companion for pinned and welded 14.5″ barrels, giving just enough space for the hand to extend all the way to the end without being concussed by muzzle devices. Retail for the carbon-fiber rails is set at $349, $339, and $329, respectively.

 

STREAMLINE CARBON Features:

  • Extreme lightweight without sacrificing strength, rigidity, or practicality.
  • M-LOK attachment across 8 facets.
  • Dramatically increases maneuverability of the weapon over legacy metal rails.
  • Low heat transfer for handling xtreme duty cycles.
  • Fits common suppressors under-rail
  • Attaches with standard armorer’s wrenches and tools.

faxon-logo

The following is a Press Release from Faxon Firearms:

Faxon Firearms is pleased to announce the release of two new SLIM muzzle devices, a 3-port muzzle brake and a tri-prong flash hider. The new SLIM devices are machined to a .620″ outer diameter, making them the perfect companion for pencil, GUNNER, and similar barrel profiles. SLIM muzzle devices are manufactured from gun-barrel quality steel and QPQ Nitride coated for durability and longevity.
When installed, the SLIM series muzzle devices match the threaded shoulder, maintaining the thin profile of the host barrel. Further, they allow the user to mount and remove the gas block without having to remove the muzzle device, allowing shooters to reconfigure their rifles without having to visit a gunsmith.
“We listened to our customers. With Faxon offering the lightest pencil profile barrels in the industry, our customers asked for companion muzzle devices,” said Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Management, “Instead of offering standard devices, we sought to improve upon and offer the lightest steel devices possible. The SLIM devices are the perfect complement to the Pencil and GUNNER profiles and the added modularity allows customers to modify their 16″ legal firearms without a gunsmith.”
Retail for the muzzle devices is set at $59.99, including the mounting/timing kit. Retail for the SLIM equipped barrels is between $249 for GUNNER profiles and $259 for pencil profiles. The first SLIM equipped barrels with brakes have shipped to dealers including Right to Bear, Brownells, AIM Surplus, and others.

Ashbury Precision Ordnance Builds Custom Tactical Rifles for New
Television Series – SHOOTER Premier

APO Custom Shop Builds SEFR Rifles in .338 Lapua Magnum
for New Action Television Series Premier

Ruckersville, VA. – Ashbury Precision Ordnance Mfg‘s Custom Shop (APOCS) was selected by Independent Studio Services, the world’s largest weapons provider to the movie and television production industry, to create a distinctive sniper rifle especially for the new SHOOTER television series premiering on the USA Cable Network November 15, 2016.  The new TV series is based on the hit 2007 movie by the same title starring Mark Wahlberg, who is also the new series’s Executive Producer.  “The SHOOTER production team did not want a non-functioning Hollywood prop,” said Matthew Peterson, Ashbury’s Product Development Coordinator.  “It was important that the sniper rifle used in the TV series had modern, realistic character and be a fully functional ‘real-steel’ precision rifle system.  The new signature SHOOTER TV series rifle needed to be based on a ‘commercially available’ factory rifle, built on the innovative SABER®-FORSST® modular rifle chassis system.”  APO had just the answer…a SABER Enhanced Factory Rifle – SEFR!

ashbury-precision-ordnance-002

The new SHOOTER TV series SEFR rifle built by the APO Custom Shop started out as a Savage 110 with a factory 26″ 1:9 twist barrel chambered for the powerful .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge.  The Savage bolt action receiver has been specially trued by the APOCS veteran US Marine Corps MOS 2112/2111 Gunsmithing/Armorer lead ordnance team. The barrel is topped off with a sleek, recoil reducing muzzle brake suppressor adapter.  The Savage AccuTrigger is superb and the rifle is easily capable of turning in sub ¾ MOA groups or better, using RUAG Swiss-P 250gr Target OTM ammunition.  This real-steel, range-ready APO precision rifle weighs in fully kitted at 18.5lbs!

ashbury-precision-ordnance-003

The patented SABER® SVL-A2 MOD-1 is proudly manufactured in the USA by American military veterans and craftsmen from aerospace grade alloys, carbon reinforced composites and high-strength, light-weight carbon fiber.  This SABER® modular rifle chassis system features a heat-mitigating prepreg carbon fiber forend with a 30MOA one piece monolithic rail that provides increased structural rigidity essential for consistent down range precision shot placement and solid co-linear mounting of a rifle scope, clip-on night vision or thermal weapon sight.

ashbury-precision-ordnance-004
“Through close design collaboration with Independent Studio Services, the current APO SEFR 110 is an enhanced version of the initial SEFR Savage 110 rifle platform Ashbury introduced in late 2012,” said Peterson.  “The SABER MOD-1 modular rifle chassis rapidly adjustable ergonomic features and Quattro forend offers the TV series writers and actors a lot to work with in terms of positioning the actor in alternate firing positions and attachment of electro-optic accessories.  Ashbury was really pleased to again work with the TV production industry having previously provided APO precision rifles and sniper support gear for television action series like THE UNIT, 24, and Chuck.”The Quattro forend has co-bore aligned Picatinny accessory rail attachment points at 3 and 9 o’clock for laser pointers, illuminators and laser rangefinders.  The 6 o’clock forend rail accommodates variable bipod and tripod attachment points.  The SVL-A2 MOD-1 has an ergonomically adaptable Push Button Adjustable Hybrid (PBA-H) shoulder stock, drop adjustable Limbsaver® premium recoil pad, height adjustable field monopod, re-positionable hand & grip angle adjustment and a detachable 10rd 3.76” high capacity magazine that accepts CIP length ammunition.
