Guns Exclusive: Faxon’s Switch-Barrel AR-15 Upper Iain Harrison January 9, 2013 2 Comments, Join the Conversation RECOIL has the only press sample of this revolutionary switch-barrel AR-15 upper, and we're currently putting it through its paces in the Arizona desert for a full feature in the next issue.
