The USSR and Warsaw Pact countries were by definition the “ Second World “.

Yeah, for years I ran competitions that involved shooting for speed and accuracy under duress (physical fatigue and a timer). And it always evolved thusly;

A lot of Kalishnikovs at the inception, then as other platforms (mainly AR-15s) proved superior, especially in the accuracy department, all of the commie shit disappeared.

By the end of that run, an AK was not to be found, unless a team was lampooning Mother Roooshia's finest in Addidas track suits.

AKs are designed for the battlefield not the shooting range

I may own an SKS and AK or two. The stamped-metal AK platform is battle-tested and 3rd world proven (the best kind of proven). Drop it in the mud, piss the chamber clean. Full of sand? Shake it off and pull the trigger.

Hands-down, when given a choice, operators choose the AR platform when shooting for accuracy at 100 yards (or more) through barricades or in-the-clear. The AR platform also serves better in tight places at shorter ranges than the AK does.

I had a couple of each before I returned them to the local police no questions asked gun buyback. I got a 10$ gift card to Arby's for each one. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

I think the ARs were better for so many things but the AKs had others the AR didn't match. Such as overall "cool" factor. And I always said this to my brother who thinks AR is superior in all ways. Let's go drop our rifles down a flight of concrete stairs, then go into battle with them. Which one would you want in that case?

Ak's are very nice firearms for their intended purpose, I believe they are the best in the world for untrained shooters. They pass the mud test, abuse test, drop test, lack of maintenance test. With that being said their operators die at amazingly high rates on the modern battlefield. Range is thy friend and AK's are great to about 150 meters, I hit targets, man sized silhouette targets with iron sites at 300 meters with my M16 several times a year. I can carry more ammo for my rifle than the communist, I can hit them at twice the range than the communist can hit me. The lack range limits the tactics that the firearm can be employed. With that being said if your poking holes in trailers then either platform is effective.

That's true at least for the 7.62x39. I know it still hits hard, I also believe it's lethal at further distances than 5.56 but it's not as nearly as accurate because you're aiming 15ft above your target at that point and lobbing them in. But the ruskies figured that out too and switched to 5.45. plus one of my favorites is a 5.56 AK. Plenty ammunition vs 5.45 and the 5.56 Is just a superior cartridge to 5.45. combloc purists fight me.

I love the stock on the left. Seeing these twins makes me want to take my KP9 to the range! Got me a bisexual trigger on there. Nowhere near as powerful as yours, but its a fast little fartbox.

I recently picked up a KR-103, Gonna find some time to head to the range and see how it does. Been a while since I had an AK, my last was a Bulgy 74.

You shoot at the same time? What's the strongman? I don't get it. Looks like a couple AK's.

MakeFloridaRed 3 points ago +3 / -0

I’m guessing that 762 is more powerful than 223/556. Try an AK and you’ll love it.

2
ShillKiller 2 points ago +2 / -0

I have both types, I wouldn't call an AK a strong man's gun.

That drum mag is very heavy when fully loaded. Pack that for a couple of miles and you will understand.

The tolerances are looser and do not necessarily require maintenance as often. I never clean my ak's. Never. I just don't have the time. In fact, my activity on here has dwindled because my time is shrinking so very much.

If I want to shoot, I take the AK out back and it always fires, no jams. Ammunition is also cheaper for the most part -- the only issue is it is steel cased.

Define better. Define where I can buy a kit that is 50 years old and rebuild it along with its history.And where I can buy cheaper steel case ammo by the case.
