2 Brand-New 9mm Pistols From Faxon (That Have Badass Names)

Published

Would it be weird if I bought a gun just because I love the name?

Faxon Firearms has taken the next logical step for a manufacturer of quality rifle and pistol parts: They’ve created and are now selling firearms of their own. Their debut? Two brand-new 9mm semi-automatic handguns with names so badass I’m tempted to buy one just for that. The good news is that the pistols, dubbed the FX-19 line, appear to have everything they need to do those names justice. They’re available for sale right now, and they’re called the Patriot and the Hellfire.

Both pistols, in addition to their names, come with DLC coated slides, machined in-house from 17-4 stainless steel and Faxon’s proven Match Series pistol barrels. The slides feature optic cuts for mounting Trijicon RMR and Holosun 507C red dots.

The Faxon polymer frame utilizes a 1911-style grip angle, custom grip textures, a double undercut trigger guard, and extended beavertail for improved recoil control and faster target acquisition. The frame also features a full picatinny rail for weapon-mounted lights. They also both include an extended magazine release, an Overwatch Precision flat-faced trigger, and one G19 magazine.

The FX-19 pistols will be available in the US with two distinct models; the Patriot – MSRP: $1299.99 and the Hellfire – MSRP: 1499.99. (Good news for our neighbors to the North: The FX-19 has also been approved for sale in Canada.) They both ship in a TSA-approved hard-sided case, and both FX-19 pistols accept GLOCK aftermarket parts, accessories, and magazines. So what’s the difference between the two?

The Hellfire. Interestingly, that’s my nickname for my left bicep.
