Something I have grown to love doing in competition settings is to bring my personal carry gun to a match to really put it through its paces. Even though the Shield series of pistols really isn’t designed for that type of thing, these new Faxon Match series barrels just might help you shore up your accuracy or let you add a compensator to the end of the barrel for faster follow up shots.

The new Faxon Match series barrels are currently available in both threaded and non-threaded configurations and come in either Nitrided, TiN coating, or Chameleon PVD coating. If anything, the TiN or PVD coating at least gives the end-user a very easy cleaning job compared to a stock barrel. Pricing varies depending on the coating type selected and whether or not you choose to have the barrel threaded. Pricing and additional information are available on the Faxon website.
