May I please get some more feedback on these. Google of here didn't produce anything as far as accuracy goes.

Wondering if a Rainier Arms Select is worth the extra $80 over this


EDIT for posting Accuracy Results

I was shooting federal 62 gr. factory loads. I got the red dot zeroed @ 25m. Was cranking groups out <1'' off hand. I then moved back to 75m (longest I can go in my yard right now) and was getting 2'' or so groups. Next time I get some good weather I will set up my shooting table so I can use the lead sled and see what it can really do but I am beyond happy with my buy!



3 shot group @ 25m ( was still zeroing RDS so shots are to the right)



5 shot group @ 25m



10 shot group at 75m ( ruler is covering 2 holes)




ETA: optic is a primary arms RDS which also exceeded my expectations! Fun day of shooting.

16'' SOCOM 4150 barrel:

At 100 yards:

1.5'' with 223 55r Freedom Munitions
1.25'' with 5.56 M855 (most surprising group of the day---in fact, the best group I've ever shot in my life with any 855 variant).
.75-.8 with 75gr 223 TAP

Consider this a preliminary range report since this is just the 25M BZO.  This is a photo of my "home-made" 25M BZO targets.  These are all 5-shot groups.  I shot top left first, then top right and finished in the center.  I was losing daylight so I stopped there.  From what I got out of the last group it looks like this little rifle will be a tack-driver!

Hope to give you guys a longer and more in-depth report range report soon.

Howdy! This is Nathan from Faxon and saw the thread up here on our barrels. We make a simple promise: "If you're not happy, we aren't and will make it right." I am available personally (call and ask for me) for any assistance.

We make the barrels (from bare steel) for our ARAK-21 and they typically shoot MOA with match ammo. The AR-15 barrels are from the same machines. If you have quality parts (that being the big question), I expect similar results.

Nathan,

Thanks for joining and lending your insight to the conversation.

I am very interested in using one of Faxon's 12.5 barrels that AIM currently has in stock.  You are saying "quality parts" and I can expect 1MOAish results?  If so that sounds great, but I was wondering if you'd care to expand on "quality parts".  I assume your talking mainly BCG so what would you suggest and consider of a quality level to lend to getting as close as possible to the 1MOA expectation?  

I've used AIMs $80 BCG in my last 3 builds and have been pleased with the performance and quality (although only 1 of the three has greater than 1K rounds on it so no long term results yet)

Sadly, your results were correct for some barrels in that batch. We have caught the defect and are replacing any of those barrels at no cost to customers. AIM has been a superb partner and we are always here for them and you.

We apologize profusely for the shooting results and know you can reach me directly in case of issues.

Great questions. I use the term "quality" as a general term to ensure you have something that has been machined correctly. As a barrel manufacturer, we have seen huge variety across the industry.

On an AR, the barrel to receiver interface is critical for repeated accuracy. If the front of the receiver is not faced correctly (its at an angle compared to the threads), the nut will apply uneven pressure and thus groups will open up dues to inconsistency. While this was relatively rare, due to the glut of parts made in "The Panic" there are new parts that are not quite up to spec.

Same with head-spacing. We have seen customers who have not actually checked it and just drop parts from the mail into guns and expect them to go bang. We manufacture and 100% test all our barrels to nominal SAAMI spec, but bolt manufacturers sometimes do not. Or, the bolt is made properly and the coating applied to it makes them too thick and it head-spaces tight. AIMs bolt carriers are great (we use them for testing ourselves since AIM is just up the road from us).

Generally speaking, if you buy parts from reputable companies, you have nothing to worry about. (Always check head-spacing, though!)

Yes, I would expect that performance from the barrel with match ammunition. We have a 1/8" twist so be cognizant of your weight and powder charge and you should be good to go. We have found the barrels love 69 grains and eat through the higher weight stuff without issue.

Correct, we have made significant improvements to our processes. While I can't got into the extreme details (as that would be a competitive secret), I can say that we have refined heat-treat, stress-relieving, and are holding amazing tolerances in the bore and rifling.

We test 100% of barrels with air gauges and pins for the muzzle diameter.

I'd like to put a few back for future projects, so I might not get them assembled and fired within 30 days in order to lodge a complaint for replacement right away.

What do you need to determine if I have one of those barrels? I got mine second hand from Clharr but haven't had a chance to see if the barrel is a turd or if the original owner was flinchy.

Hi RogueNathan.
What is the expected round count lifespan for the QPQ Nitride coating in the barrel?
Can you describe your testing to arrive at those numbers?

Thanks

A great question. For most people, barrel life is defined as past their point of it being not accurate to their standards. Given this, our standard is about 3-4 MOA for well-worn barrels.

What I can say is we have not formally tested barrels to end of life in a scientific setting, only through our T&E guns that have 10's of thousands of rounds through a barrel. Almost all were copper FMJ lead core rounds.

Based on this, I would say barrel life for 4150 barrels is around 15,000 rounds before the groups open up past our comfort point (defined above). The use of bi-metal bullets will reduce barrel life significantly (but remember, it is cheaper to shoot, even with paying for barrel changes). http://www.luckygunner.com/labs/brass-vs-steel-cased-ammo/

All in all, our barrels are very much in line with industry standards. We button rifle them, heat treat, stress relieve & QPQ them in accordance with industry best practices. If LuckyGunner or anyone wants to do another epic test for QPQ vs Chrome lining, vs raw, we would happily oblige and have full confidence we will be in line with any other QPQ barre.

Thanks for that update. I have the dimple jig and some solid carbide bits that would probably make quick work of it as well.

RogueNathan why does your 10.5" 7.62x39 barrel have a 1:8 twist as opposed to 1:10?
Link Posted: 11/26/2014 2:15:13 PM EDT
Excellent question!

Two primary reasons.
1: We have found there is no adverse effect on accuracy with 7.62x39 rounds. Having the higher twist also allows hand-loaders to go really heavy grain counts with no issues (like subsonics).
2: We have had shooters increasingly looking to 7.62x39 to suppress. at 1:10, with a low powder load in some ammo, the round may have a baffle strike. Like 1:7 for 300 BLK, 1:8 for 7.62x39 is perfect for those applications.

Yep.

Just be careful once you are through the QPQ. The QPQ is significantly harder to drill through and we had a customer not pay attention and drill through the barrel!

Our standard barrels are not dimpled. Simply put, there are so many different types of clamp on gas blocks with different dimple patterns, it would be crazy to try and make a barrel for them all!

So, we opted to leave it a standard profile (which also keeps the prices lower by about $5/barrel for the machine time to dimple). We see it as a win-win.

OEMs, large online retailers, and others have ordered custom barrels for their uses before. We are very happy to do the operation for anyone who requests it for a quantity.

That had to be a hard lesson to learn!! I did three others, did a very light dimple, and checked my work very carefully during the process. Understand about all the different configurations and look forward to getting my Faxon barrel on Monday.

I will report back once I get it installed in the upper and test fired.

According to AIM (And your web site last I checked) you put 1/2"x28tpi threads on 7.62x39 barrels, is that correct? Normally they have different threads to prevent a 223 devise that wont take a 30 projectile from accidently being installed.

I e mailed you about the twist rate and threads a while back, it was because we had a thread going here about your barrels.............. FYI, whoever gets the e mails at you shop did not reply.

What would you like to see? We make Socom/Gov't Profile (Pictures will be up next week) that were shooting MOA easily.

There is incredible options for 18" with the amount of material. Are you asking fior a heavier profile behind the gas block?

Yikes! I thought I did respond to it. Are you perhaps W H Smith? We even tried to send a coupon code for finding the website error!

The threading is an error (of the cut n paste variety). All .300 caliber barrels have 5/8x24 for that very reason.

Our website has since been fixed. AIM' will be shortly.

Yikes! I thought I did respond to it. Are you perhaps W H Smith? We even tried to send a coupon code for finding the website error!

The threading is an error (of the cut n paste variety). All .300 caliber barrels have 5/8x24 for that very reason.

Our website has since been fixed. AIM' will be shortly.

BTW- We are running a Black Friday special for 11% off anything on the website."HAPPYARAKTURKEYDAY"


Nope. Not w h smith.

The mk12 SPr profile barrels, they have a contour that lets you use the allen engineering collar to center the suppressor:

Took a look at that barrel and it does not seem to have any special cuts, only an outside profile? Previous MK12 designs we have seen have milling cuts on the barrel for indexing.

Its only to slip the centering collar on like this:

The drawing is for the barrel tip, but that's an easy profile to do. The tolerances arent too bad either.

We will consider it or are very happy to do a group buy with you guys for a minimum of 25 pieces.

The 7.5" 416R barrel I got has amazing fit and finish. I just got it together this week I will be shooting it on Friday and will report back with accuracy.

Just found your website a couple of days ago.  Very interested in your pencil weight 16" 5.56, but would much prefer a 14.5" or 14.7".  I will hold off for awhile, to see if they are a possibility.  It's good to see people bringing new products to the market.  Best wishes in your endeavor.

Think about picking one up from Recoil Gunworks.

This is what I want.  18" gov profile with a rifle length gas and a 1/8 twist.    I would buy it today if it were available.
