An AR needs loving to work properly. AK works in extreme cold temperatures and in any type of environment.

You haven't been using the right AR mate. An AR that is constructed right is just as reliable as any AK. I'd put mine up against any AK.

If I lived in an area where I can shoot long distance, a Tigr would also be a good choice. Excellent .308 sniper rifle. Oh, the company I keep showing "Waffenschumacher", is the weapons dealer that is sending me my Arsenal AK. Please look around the website. They also sell the Schmeisser ARs.

Everybody always talks abt how awesome ARs are but everyone of my buddy's ARs are so picky with ammo. I would never buy an AR unless it was for plinking. Not for a shtf. Stamped receivers vs milled = no contest I dont care how unamerican that sounds. Ars are not near as reliable as a good simple AK platform

Interesting you had problems with your AR in the cold, we don't seem to have that issue here in the great north America USA

Where the hell are you getting an AR with a Stamped receiver,there isn't any.

While an AK might be more reliable,it falls considerably short of any AR for accuracy.
I'd take a SKS over an AK any day of the week.

Well,Since I own a large amount of firearms,and have been shooting for over 40 years,I've had quite a bit of experience shooting many firearms.
I've had several AK's,SKS's and AR's over the years,and there are no longer any AK's or SKS's in my arsenal,but the SKS's were far more accurate than any AK I've ever had,and I handload for every caliber I shoot.

If a weapon can't shoot 1/2 - 3/4 MOA,it doesn't stay in my collection very long,and neither platform does.
If shooting a rifle that shoots minute of man is fine for you,then I guess you have a great weapon.

What are you talking about? Stamped vs milled? AR receivers are machined. Not stamped. Btw, AR's are made of WAY better parts.

I would not know if my personal AR would suffer in extreme cold temperatures, it never gets that cold over here. Mine is a competition rifle though. It better perform though, I paid a bundle for it. It has not failed me yet. It is much easier to clear out crap from an AK then an AR. In a SHTF battle, cleaning out debris with an AR will get you killed. You have to take the gun apart. Ask any soldier. For Stoner's invention to work, you always have to keep it clean. He admitted it himself. With an AK....forget about it.

At what point is dirty too dirty? I guess it changes with the quality of AR you have. Mine just works and I'd be happy to prove it anybody. I just cleaned it for the first time in 800rds.
