Faxon Firearms

At the beginning of Faxon Firearms was the ARAK-21.

After seeing the AK-47 and the M16 battle for the top spot of “best gun of all time,” Faxon Firearms President, Bob Faxon, knew that if his dream was going to come to market, he couldn’t offer something that was ‘second best’ to the shooting sports industry.

Sitting down at the kitchen table of his Cincinnati home with his 2 sons, Bob took three pieces of paper and made the first drawings of what would become the ARAK-21. The goal: combine the best features of both the AR-15 and the AK-47 into the greatest firearm he could imagine.
