What kind of ammunition does the Arak 21 XRS shoot?

The ARAK-21 XRS seeks to combine the benefits of both weapon systems into one gun. The original ARAK was an upper receiver, bolt system, and barrel that allowed a shooter to fire the AK-47’s iconic 7.62×39 millimeter ammunition with any standard AR-15 lower receiver. Faxon has released a lower to go with its nifty upper.

What is the dual ejector on the Arak 21?

The ARAK-21 comes with a dual ejector, allowing you to eject your spent shell casings to the left or right. This feature is a godsend for lefty shooters who often have to contend with casings being ejected to the right. The ARAK’s safety is also ambidextrous.

Is it possible to be hyperthyroid with suppressed TSH?
