New for 2016, Faxon Firearms has released its Houlding Precision billet Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) receivers in 10 custom Cerakote colors.

The Cerakote color on Houlding Precision upper receivers are set apart by a superior color application process. Cerakote is applied only after anodizing to maximize the durability and longevity of the receiver.

Unlike other offerings, where Cerakote is applied directly over virgin material, Houlding receivers have 60 Rockwell anodized aluminum under the coating to ensure a lifetime of high performance.

Houlding receivers are 100 percent CNC machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum. Featuring hard angles, 3-D surfaces, extreme precision and tight tolerances, the receivers are visually striking.

The picatinny rail features mechanically engraved T-marks for accessory placement and the barrel interface is guaranteed to be square. Houlding receivers feature forward assists and remove the dust cover. Uppers feature M4 feed ramps.

Faxon Firearms purchased Houlding Precision in early 2015 and moved the company and the Houlding family to join Faxon.

Houlding MSR receivers will be available in individual stripped components or as a complete matched receiver set. Available colors include:

  • Armor Black
  • Barrett Bronze
  • Burnt Bronze
  • Flat Dark Earth
  • Graphite Black
  • Olive Drab
  • Patriot Brown
  • Sniper Grey
  • Titanium
  • Tungsten

MSRP for upper and lower receivers are $209 each or $399 for a matched set in anodized black. As a reintroduction promo, Faxon and Houlding are offering free Cerakote upgrades for the first 25 matched receiver set customers. After the initial 25 orders, Cerakote will be offered as an optional upgrade for $39.99 for upper or lower receivers or $74.99 for the matched set upgrade.
