Default Are all aks equal in acurracy? How far can you get decent groups?

Can you get decent groups 5" at 200 yards with an ak47? Are all aks just about equal in accuracy?

depends on the ammo the sighting device used and mostly on the shooter.

the thing that hurts the ak the most is the terribly poor ballistic qualities of the bullets. there just arent any target grade .311 bullets in the 123grain range. then there is the aweful trigger.

however most ak should hold 5" at 200 yards with iron sights and a skilled shooter. ive seen plenty of ak47 holding 1.5 inch at 100yards

Like JonM says it is the ammo, optics, & shooter makes a gun shoot good.
I can hit 10" gongs at 375yds all day long with Golden Tiger ammo & this WASR10.

It will hold about a 3" group at 100yds.
