Does that work or did I open a can of worms?
You opened a can of worms, with incorrect statements flying out the wazoo.
The rifle AK can be just as accurate as the AR. The difference comes, primarily, from the nut behind the trigger usually not being able to shoot as well with the AK sight system as with the AR system. Throw on top of that the differences in ammo standards (6 MOA for the AK vs 2 MOA for the AR) and the AK can be less accurate.
The AK does
need regular cleaning and maintenance. Like any mechanical device, it needs lubed.
And there is nothing quite as sexy as an AR covered in dust...
