Pretty sure the OP doesn't care WHAT you have to say. So why bother posting anything?

If your opinion is "buy this light/grip/optic instead because its better...."

OR "don't buy this model because it gave me this problem but THIS model is better...."

That information might actually be useful to the OP.

This is just a guess mind you, but I think it's an accurate one.
Ill go with that deltaf!

FWIW I wouldn't pay $700 for a WASR either, it wasn't so long ago they were $379. For a bit more you can get a high quality Arsenal.

And yes, the AR vs AK thing is a myth. ARs are much more reliable and AKs are much more accurate than either are given credit for.
Whos to say im not proficient with iron sights?

And please give me your reason/proof why u say AR are much more reliable... cause if that was true... i would buy one instead.

Lose the Ergo grip. They put your hand in a weird position. It doesn't promote a high grip.

I hear 50/50 on this.
I know a couple guys who love that hogue grip...
Then some like the small original grip.... the Tapco saw grip looks nice...but maybe a lil
Too fat/wide.

I wouldnt agree with the AR being more reliable or accurate. I own a WASR and several AR's The AR is only as reliable as the manufacturer that builds them and the AK is only as accurate as the operator . Yes , some ARs are capable of 1/2 MOA but I have seen a few that wont group 3" at 100 yards either . The AK was made to hit man sized targets out to 300 yards with no MOA claims the few I have handled will group 2-3" groups at 100 yards with irons . That's like comparing apples to oranges . They both are special purpose rifles and you really cant compare them to each other . The AK to me is more of a CQB type of rifle . Where the AR will reach out at more distance accurately .
I have a love for them both and wouldnt be afraid to grab either in a SHTF scenerio .

Unless you move the AR up to a .308 you aren't going to get much out of either past 150 yards.

If we're talking ballistically (stopping power) here, that's one thing. I'm not an armchair ballistician so I can't talk about numbers as well as others. So I won't.

But if you're implying the 5.56 can't reach out to past 500 yards you need to rethink that.
