The Firearms Blog recently attempted a torture test of the Faxon Firearms ARAK carbine, a hybrid of AR-15 and AKM-pattern carbines.

It didn’t work out so well.

Much to their credit, Faxon didn’t attempt to make excuses or place blame, but offered up a plausible explanation for the mechanical reason for failure, and promised to work through the issue to improve upon the design.

More companies like this, please.
