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.”

https://mlsvc01-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/2c587da8301/0f1aa2c5-99e5-4810-a96e-ce33867e6b62.jpg

 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.

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.

“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.

Facebook Censorship

Is Facebook back at it again with their censorship?  I would truly like to see the exact guideline that was violated for this post to be removed.  I guess it is okay for groups that spout hatred towards a group of people and promote the downward spiral of our nation, like the “Anti Police Terror Project“, but a photo of a gun, which is a right protected by the United States Constitution, is somehow violating a “Facebook Community Standard”.

I guess when you have over 300,000 Followers on a FB page, that does not sit well with those who want to see you fail.  I will not stop posting because someone “reported” one of my photos.
