These photos were taken by Youtuber NSZ85 (take a look his channel, he has some really good content on it). The ARAK-21 combines features from the AK and the AR-15. Its upper receiver is compatible with AR-15 lowers and it features a quick change barrel system, AK-style long stroke adjustable gas piston, ambidextrous charging handle and it is compatible with folding stocks (no buffer tube). I have embedded NSZ85’s review of the Faxon ARAK-21 in .300 BLK below …



  • These are so damn cool. I had a chance to shoot an ARAK gun a while back and I absolutely loved it!

    • Seconded. Now if only the Faxon Canada project could be magically fast-forwarded.

      • Friggen export rules. THe guns have been done and waiting on paperwork.

    I really like these uppers and the gen 2 seems to have all the bugs worked out, maybe if santa thinks im being extra good this year, I can get one

    These are sweet! I’m holding out for an SU15 later this year, though!

    I want one of these so badly.

    Absolutely love it, just can’t justify the price to myself 🙁

    I’ve been meaning to try one of these out. My biggest gripe with the AR platform has always been the charging handle and this remedies that issue 🙂

    Does anyone know if they’ll do a 14.5/14.7″ pinned and welded barrel+muzzle device?
