Faxon Firearms announced via their YouTube and Facebook pages on Friday that all funds will be donated to two partnered charities. The charities are the Matthew 25 Ministries fund or the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Disaster Relief Fund. Faxon will also be raffling a unique ARAK-21 XRS rifle to those who donate.
Matthew 25 Ministries has been assisting with international Hurricane Relief since 1998. The charity specializes in distribution networks and includes its own “fleet of specialty vehicles”. Aside from disaster relief, the charity also works with Humanitarian Aid, Special Programs, In-House Manufacturing, and Weather Monitoring.
Disabled American Veterans has helped 292,200 veterans since 1920. DAV’s disaster relief program offers relief grants, supply kits, hygiene kits to veterans and their families affected by natural disasters.
Faxon Firearms began as Faxon Machining in 1978, and began building firearms in 2012. They are best known for their ARAK-21 upper receiver and ARAK-21 XRS complete rifle system incorporating design features from both the AR and AK platforms (thankfully without the reciprocating charging handle). For more on the ARAK-21 XRS, see the TFB Review here. The current price on Faxon’s facebook page for a stock ARAK-21 XRS is $1,899.00.
