Photos: Faxon Firearms ARAK-21

At SHOT 2015 we took a look at one of the Faxon ARAK-21’s on display.
Faxon-2
The ARAK name combines AR and AK as it uses an AR lower with an AK style long-stroke piston upper.
Faxon-3
The ARAK series has a folding side charging handle in the forward position of the handguard like the old roller-delayed H&K’s. Unlike the H&K’s it can be pulled out and moved to either side of the weapon.
Faxon-4
I’ve had the opportunity to fire the Faxon (not the one pictured) but not enough to give an educated opinion on reliability or handling. Felt impulse seemed less than a standard 16″ AR15 but the gun was also heavier and equipped with a hefty brake. I look forward to spending more time with the weapon some time in the future.
