if you want a decent quality ak made from good materials with good fit and finish they cost just as much as ar15's

and ar15's are just as reliable as ak47. there are ak47 that are jammomatics and ar15 that run forever eating everything. and just the opposite. its all in how much care is taken when they are created.
True, every word. ARs are extremely reliable and will run anything even when filthy.

Everyone that has picked up a firearm in the defense of one's country has experienced similar loss. The best way to get over it is by throwing on your body armor, sling your weapon and slaughter the MFs. That's what we did. We had a nice memorial service for at the FOB then walked to our hooch grabbed our gear and left the wire. Some people will never understand this and will run their mouths over the internet knowing they would get smashed otherwise. These same d-bags will forever live that lifestyle talking like they know something.

Your service is greatly appreciated, in my house we discuss what it means to be American, and often the US troops, I know you guys hear it from time to time, but thank you, my family thanks you, to often we put to the back of our minds what our boys are going through, days turn to weeks, weeks into years and often we feel so secure that we kinda feel like the fight must be over by now. I will not let this happen around my house, the fight goes on, fighting a very real fight. I applaude you and your brothers.

Thought you might like that one.

Just know true Americans hearts and minds go alongside you brother.

I find it very hard to believe that anyone who has faced an AK-47 in the last 65 years would describe it as anything but a formidable battle rifle.
Fewer still would describe the AK derived,accurized RPK stoked with match grade 7.62/54r's as a piece of junk,at least not inside 600-700 yards.

I've attended five military funerals in the last few years and have little issue with how they fell. I have much larger issues with the why,where,who and what they fell for.Anyone that has an opinion will have to reserve it till after the next poppy harvest or until the Pakistan secret service commits it's next act of treachery.(can it be much worse than hiding Osama Bin Laden in plain sight?)

The total is five fathers and husbands to include three sons of close friends.One I didn't know personally but I traveled over 200 miles to stand a barricade line along with several hundred others and a 1/8 mile long biker escort to prevent religious fanatics from disturbing the service.
This is the only time I've ever understood why someone would want to throw a Christian to the lions.

I've read this thread pretty carefully and the only thing that bothers me is the pure thuggery of some fascist attempt to use the mere mention of Arlington cemetery as ruse to stifle the free flow of reasonable dialogue or debate.This tactic isn't even worthy of a high school pissing contest.

I've carved and cast at least one headstone in my lifetime but I wouldn't abide anyone being hit over the head with it merely for a comment out of turn.(particularly one that I'm sure wasn't meant to be mean or hateful in the least) There are enough head hunting trolls after our breed that we can ill afford to fall to friendly fire from our own....

I would say it is the company or country that determines the crapiness of the weapon. Some small American made ar's just are missing some quality pieces. The Ak compared to Ak the best in my opinion is Russian then Yugo
