Faxon Firearms SENTINEL 8.6 Blackout AR-10s Now Available -The Firearm Blog

At SHOT Show 2022, Faxon Firearm in collaboration with Q LLC introduced bolt action and semi-auto firearms chambered in 8.6 Blackout. The 8.6BLK is a .338 caliber cartridge developed by Q and Faxon designed the guns chambered in this cartridge, more importantly, they were able to make barrels with an extremely fast twist rate of 1:3″ required to stabilize the heavy 300-grain bullets of subsonic 8.6BLK loads. Faxon Firearms has recently announced that their Sentinel series of AR-10 pattern semi-auto rifles chambered in 8.6 Blackout is now available for preorder.

Faxon Firearms @ TFB:

The 8.6 Blackout cartridge has case head dimensions and overall length identical to .308 Winchester which in conjunction with its overall shape allows loading unmodified AR-10 magazines to their full capacity.
