Owners of the Glock G43 and G43X pistols beware, there are new drop-in Faxon Match Series barrels available in various configurations and coating types. The barrels are machined by Faxon Firearms out of 416-R stainless steel and then given black Nitride or PVD surface coating. The Glock 43 is perhaps not the first handgun you think about suppressing, but it’s now possible with the optional ½-28 TPI threading.
Gold finish or one of the black? Which one do you prefer?
Here’s the message from Faxon in full:
Faxon Announces Match Series of Barrels for Glock G43/43X
(CINCINNATI, OH) – Faxon Firearms, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based manufacturer of quality rifle and pistol components, and complete firearms, is excited to announce the release of their new Match Series Barrels for Glock® G43/43X.
“This year we are making a big push to expand both our pistol barrel and pistol part and accessories lines. We released M&P® Shield barrels last month, G43 is just releasing, and keep your eye out soon for another single-stack offering. After that, expect some exciting new accessories and different pistol platform barrel offerings. We’ve brought a lot of new machines and equipment online over the past couple of months, which will allow us to really push into these segments.” – Jay Wilson, Faxon Director of Product Management
Faxon’s Match Series pistol barrels for Glock® G43/43X are machined 100% in-house from stress-relieved 416-R stainless steel. These barrels are then given a black Nitride or PVD coating to increase lubricity, barrel life, and resistance to surface wear. All barrels are conventionally rifled to allow a wider range of ammunition to be used, including cast lead. The barrels drop into factory-spec slides with no gunsmithing required. Better-than-factory tolerances ensure a consistent, tighter lockup than OEM.
