Incredibly light and very accurate April 29, 2017
Reviewer: Rob K from Henderson, NV United States  
I had picked up the 4150v Faxon Pencil BBL for my son's first AR build (where he did all the build, and dad just 'advised', heh). I was extremely impressed with that barrel (see my other review for the 4150 version.

When my wife shot the boy's AR she decided right there that she wanted me to change her upper from a Socom profile BBL to a Faxon pencil BBL. (Twist my arm...heh).

I decided to try this version for her rebuilt, using the 416R version since RTB had a good sale going on it at the time. When together without issue and the wife loved the change from the heavier front end of the Socom. At the range is shows a bit of heat shift (the 4150 on the boy's impressed me with how little or no heatshift it had), but cold shot accuracy is fantastic.

It is quite incredible how lightweight these Faxon pencil profiles are. I have a few Ballistic Advantage pencil profile barrels and they are a bit heavier (23oz vs 19 for the Faxon).

Excellent barrel and extremely light weight November 18, 2016
Reviewer: Jay from St Petersburg, FL United States  
This barrel is great if you're building a super light weight gun. It's very accurate for what it is. You should know that if you're going to be dumping magazines through it fast enough to get the barrel hot, your groups are going to widen up a bit. Nothing too extreme but, it is noticeable if you're shooting from a bench. It's the nature of the beast when it comes to such a light weight pencil barrel. If you're shooting plates at 100 yards or less then it's really a non-issue. If this is a concern for you then get the Faxon GUNNER barrel which has a government profile out to the gas block and a pencil profile from the gas block out.
