Guns Faxon Firearms STREAMLINE Handguards Recoil Staff January 14, 2016 Faxon Firearms burst on the scene several years back out of nowhere. The ARAK rifle has gotten some major love and we look forward to where these guys go. They are releasing a new series of handguards that cut all the fluff. Check out what they have to say about them below. The trend of removing the unused rails on a rifle and replacing them with KeyMod or M-LOK is a welcome change. It reduces weight and makes the rifle much nicer to hold. Faxon Firearms, manufacturers of the ARAK platform rifle system, is pleased to announce the release and shipment to dealers of its STREAMLINE series of handguards. True to their namesake, the new Streamline handguards are a sleek and low-profile solution for those looking for a slimmer handguard with flexible mounting. Further, the Streamline features an uninterrupted MIL-STD 1913 “Picatinny” rail across the top and 7 facets of M-LOK cuts at the 90 and 45-degree facets. Rail slots are directly engraved with “T” marks during machining to identify accessory placement anodized or if customers opt for custom coatings. 45-degree facets.

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services. Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc View imagery from our coverage of last year's SHOT Show right here. 2016 SHOT Show January 18 — Media on the Range (numerous shooting facilities in and around Las Vegas) January 19–22, 2016 Sands Expo and Convention Center Las Vegas, Nevada Hours: Tuesday, January 19 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 20 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Thursday, January 21 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Friday, January 22 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Explore RECOILweb:Alien Gear Releases Line of Kimber Micro HolstersPistol Dry Fire DrillsDIY: A Glock 19 Clone Custom Build with the Nomad 9 FrameSalutations to all Airmen on Air Force Day NEXT STEP: Download Your Free Target Pack from RECOILFor years, RECOIL magazine has treated its readers to a full-size (sometimes full color!) shooting target tucked into each big issue.
