Ahh but with a 69gr. Sierra HPBT travelling at 3000 fps. I can make a mess of internal organs or make a head explode like a water balloon...with one shot

Maybe you have a super-AK, but I'd like to see someone hit anyone at 300m with an AK...maybe the broad side of a barn, but not a body, and certainly not with every shot. That would be a challenge even for an SKS, which is by far more accurate than any AK.

Ive hit 'minute of barn' with the SLR a few times but honestly...its not a 300-600M weapon.Actually hitting out and maybe 'surrounding the target' with 39 rounds still seems to be a stretch.

Heres the SLR...

SLR-107CR




For distance fire I prefer a 308...even a 223.

Nice looking gun Guntotin! That's not your typical $399 AK is it?

I own one of each and, believe it or not, my AK actually stopped running because of trash in the bolt. Never had any problem with the AR at all. Neither is my go to gun because I have the best of both worlds, a Robinson Armament XCR. Anyone who says a .223 round is not effective has never seen the results of a 60 gr Hornady V-max. Nasty.

I think it was American Rifleman who did a comparison of the M4 and AK-47. The M4 won because of accuracy, lightweight, and its ability to take accessories, such as scopes, flashlights, bayonets, grenade launchers, etc. They quoted "With the AK, you could probably hit the broad side of a barn if you were standing inside of it."

Buy both! That way you can use the ammo you pick up from the guys you just shot!

I have an Oly Arms and put a TNW gas piston conversion on it ($250) - was getting too much gas and carbon in the face when I had my AAC M4-1000 suppressor on. The conversion runs just fine, and everything is a LOT cleaner! Took about 1/2 hour to make the switch, even after screwing it up once (left out some spacers).

I think about it in terms of "The End of the World" issues. Have the M4-1000 on my Oly to take out any bad folks at a good distance, and the suppressor will make it a bit harder for them to locate me. If they come at me in force, I'll pick up the AK and let loose. That should keep their heads down, and the round should knock down folks with body armor harder than the 5.56. I have the 18" Mossberg 500 with some nasty specialized rounds if they get inside, along with my S&W M&P 40 and S&W 850 w/ Crimson Trace. Something for everyone!

If, OTOH, you're just looking for something to shoot, I'd go with the AR. The variety and quality makes it easy to customize. Ammo IS expensive, but spend another $200 and get the .22LR conversion. Plink away all day!

Finally, I think the sheeple would be more concerned seeing you walking around with an AK in hand than a nicely tricked-out AR. For the sheeple, AK=terrorist.

Amazing, my thoughts to your keyboard.
