What AR15 have you been shooting?
In an apples to apples comparison, i'll put up the AR15 against the AK47 every time.
Saying the AK47 is the best gun ever because it's cheap and mass produced is like saying Soccer is better than Football. In other words, Rice is the most abundant food on the planet for human consumption...it gets the job done, but i'll take a steak over rice every time.
The AK47 does the job it was intended to do. And it does it well. That doesn't make it "better" over all.
Also, to answer the OP question - nothing good ever came out of China since about the 9th century when they claim to be the first to have invented Gun Powder.
