Faxon Firearms, best known for their wide range of AR-pattern components, especially barrels, is showing off a new flagship series of limited-edition P-51 Mustang-themed rifles. Faxon will only produce 25 of these rifles.
The rifles are built around Faxon’s popular match-grade Gunner-profile barrel. This barrel features a nitride finish, 5R rifling and a nickel-teflon barrel extension. It’s matched to an M16 bolt carrier group with a “Superfinish” nitride treatment. At the muzzle is a Faxon MuzzLok washer-less flash hider.
Faxon builds each Mustang on a set of their Enhanced forged alloy receivers that use a tensioning screw to eliminate wobble. The receivers are completed with Radian Raptor LT charging handles, Radian Talon selector levers and Hiperfire EDTDM Single Stage Triggers.
Every rifle has a 16-inch barrel with a mid-length gas system and full-length 15-in modular M-Lok free-floating handguard. Unloaded with a Lancer magazine the rifle weighs just 6.1 pounds.
Rounding things out are Magpul MOE-SL slimline buttstocks and carbine-length buffer assemblies, Magpul MOE grips and of course, the excellent P-51 finish.
The custom coatings were applied by One Off Coating, a specialist that works with Cerakote finishes and laser engraving to create top-notch functional works of art.
Each of the 25 people who join the Faxon Mustang club will receive a collector’s T-shirt, Faxon stickers, a framed print of the original Mustang art used for the rifles’ finish and a certificate signed by Bob and Barry Faxon of Faxon Firearms.
Priced at $1,550 these will sell out fast. Faxon isn’t putting a price premium on these rifles between the quality components and custom work, not to mention, added extras.
If you’re a P-51 fan that wants a flexible, lightweight and good-looking rifle this Mustang should be on your short list. They won’t be around too long.
