Exclusive: Faxon’s Switch-Barrel AR-15 Upper

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. As usual, we'll report on the good, the bad, and the ugly — but so far, this thing is well machined, well thought out, and nicely finished. As part of our commitment to our readers, we wanted to give you a little flavor of what's to come, so here's a rough pic from its first outing.

Specs:
Operating System: Long-stroke piston, multi-lug bolt
Calibers: 5.56 NATO, 300BLK
Barrel Length: 16-inch
Barrel Profile: Midweight, no M4 cuts
Charging Handle: Forward-mounted, non-reciprocating
