Faxon Firearms ARAK-21

A Quick Look at the Faxon Firearms ARAK-21 Upper Receiver

While both the AR-15 and AK-47 have features that most gun enthusiasts find positive, they also have issues that most gun enthusiasts find negative. The ARAK-21™ was designed to combine the best of both. By utilizing the most commonly agreed upon strengths of both rifle systems and combining them into one monolithic upper that will fit on any MIL-SPEC lower AR-15 receiver, Faxon Firearms believes that they’ve have introduced a unique and creative solution to the age old controversy of which is better, AR or AK? And that solution is the ARAK-21™.

Consider these features: The precision machined 6061 T-6 billet aluminum monolithic upper receiver, integral full length upper piccatiny rail, long stroke piston system with variable settings, forward ambidextrous folding non-reciprocating spring return charging handle, 8 lug involute model 39 ambidextrous bolt, hardened rail system for the bolt carrier, interchangeable barrels and calibers (5.56 / .223 and .300 BLK) in less than 3 minutes, self contained firing pin system, bolt-on insulated side and lower piccatiny rail system, gas port cleanout access, and the ability to fit directly without modification onto any MIL-SPEC AR-15 lower receiver, and have the ability to fold the stock. That should answer any question about your best choice.
