My first AK was a Yugo M70ab2, then I got a WASR 3, then 2 Romy G's, then an Arsenal 106fr and an SGL 20. After that a SAR 3. I'm now waiting for an Arsenal 106ur to arrive at my FFL. I don't think that I'll ever shake it.

First off the M1A is not even on the same planet as an AK, not even CLOSE to comparable! That's like having a debate among friends deciding where to order pizza and beer and throwing into the conversation the notion of having Chicken Alfredo and White wine. . .


No offense, but I seriously doubt you own many AKs. In the slight chance that you do own more that one AK (less than 2 AKs in the safe disqualifies you from further dialog note the title of the thread)

It is very obvious when a member have not shot them enough to get to know them. The AK has a purpose and A DAMN GOOD ONE!!! I can pump about 75% of a 75 round drum in a 24" x 36" chunk of cardboard as fast as I can pull the trigger.

I have controlled my AK passion with the introduction of the AR. In order for this to be effective, the ARs must be built (assembled) by me and also, at least, slightly out of the ordinary.

TO THE OP: If you believe you are approaching the point where your collection could use some versatility away from the Kalashnikov direction, there are many outlets that you will have almost as much fun with!

I got one of those M70's. Damn fun rifle to shoot.For the money it's hard to beat them. Some of the AK snobs wont like it but it's not their rifle so they can just go back to their custom built uber AK with secret ingredient X that makes a it run faster and jump higher. The AK was not designed to be the most accurate. But they can sure pump the ammo and it gets pretty dang close to where it needs to be anyway.

Sure the round is not the best out there but it has it's place. For what you can get a bunch of that commie ammo for it's just hard to beat the fun vs. cost. Now you need a D or M model SKS that uses the same mags and you are in the good time fun place.

Amen partener! So is it your opinion that the AK-47 is close enough in build, ammo, accuracy, firepower and/or intended battle purpose/use to cxompare it (The AK-47) to the M1a??? A fine gun I might add.

comparing an ak to an m1a is like comparing a ford escort to a rolls royce.
