    Wow, an AK can do what a coat hanger can do, I'm impressed. Oh, wait, a coat hanger can also unplug a drain. Sorry AK, not as good as a coat hanger.

    I'd rather that my stock not be too hot to shoulder the rifle.

    An AR owner would use a stick for cooking and the rifle would be ready to fire at any time.

    My Norincos do 3.5 MOA with Chinese copper washed. That will drop a man at 300 yards

    There was a dude that used to cook bacon by wrapping it around the barrel of his MG42.

    Does this mean Ron Popeil or George Forman will start making AKs?

    and do you find yourself shooting at men more often then you do paper ? I think a .223/.556 that shoots sub moa is just as capable to "drop a man at 300 yards" and would have an advatange requiring less time between shots to hit the same size target at a given distance. So 3.5 moa at 300 yards ='s 10.5in groups which means you would be lucky to hit a pie plate at 300 yards? I think I'll keep my sub moa AR. Have fun trying to hit pie plates at 300 :thumbup:

    Not many encounters actually happen at over 200 meters.
    Besides, 7.62X39 turns cover into concealment, unlike the admittedly more accurate 5.56.

    It's apparent that you prefer ars. And that's just fine. However I've seen some ak's that have outshot ars. Not all ak's are unaccurate.

    At what distance and with what load?
    I've seen a few shot by people who were more trained on the platform than I and they seemed to do quite well. My next trip out I'll take that challenge with some hand loaded ammo.

    I can do a lot with my AR, but that doesn't mean I should.
    I'm sure in some commie USSR you may need to cook spam on a AK butt stock, but here in America we have pans for that.
    And we use our U.S. made rifles for shooting our enemies.

    I have a Valmet and a Galil that'll do better than that...........Little more sophisticated, but Kalashnikov's none the less. Guess what, drop 'em in the sand, they still shoot, try that with an AR..I also enjoy shooting my ARs....;)

    He he he, I have a two year old Sig 556 that shoots sub MOA and hasn't had a failure in thousands of rounds. Swiss AK design, super accurate. Dirty or clean doesn't matter, it won't jam. It tops both the AK and AR so you guys will need to decide who is second and who is third cause Sig 556 is claiming top gun.
