Th AR-15 is easier to convert to Fully Automatic. All you need is the firing pin from an AR-9 . . .

Re: AR-15 vs AK-47
depends.

if you are in the rain and mud or windy desert with sand blowing all over the place I'd go with the AK.

but if you are in an urban environment and have the time to care for your weapon go with the AR-15

Bulgarian SLR-95 (AK-47) with Milled Receiver.

It plinks just as accurately as my Bushmaster AR-15 at 200 yards with iron sights.

Plus, it has NEVER jammed on me. And that's with the older crappy Wolf ammo.

Right, I have both and just not that big of a fan of the.223 seems like a glorified .22

Re: AR-15 vs AK-47
I suggest getting an AK 47 and waiting for a SCAR or ACR.


The military is looking to replace the M4 with one of these newer gas piston rifles.

I've heard that if you do that, the barrels were made for semi-auto fire only and they would fail in full auto? Is this true?

Also, does an AK fire .223 Remington?

Re: AR-15 vs AK-47
depends on what you want it for. the 15 is lighter and the smaller ammo lets you carry more. good at short or long range. the 47 is heavier but more dependable. and cheaper. they are a big black market gun. the bigger bullet gives you more stopping power but lack of powder shortens its range.

if you don't have the restricted ammo for these you're only playing with .22 magnum ballistics...

Re: AR-15 vs AK-47
if you could find on get an AK 74. fires a smaller bullet than the 47 and is much more accurate than both the others. they were all built in russia, as far as i know, and have the chromed barrels and receivers. but they are collectors gun so you will have to pay big bucks.

I second this. Was considering the "tacticool" AR57 upper but the ballistics of the CIVILIAN rounds were terrible for the extra $$$. No way could I justify that. Now, if I had the GOOD ammo - then yea.


Get an AR, and if the gas system bugs you get a gas piston kit for it.

AK's feel cheap and look cheap IMO.

Yup. Crappy. But the new polymer coated ones are fine. I even have them in .308 and work well in my FAL types.

Meh, I think the newer polymer coated stuff sucks. I have half a case of it that's rusted.

I'll take lacquer coated any day.
