Default ar or ak?

OK guys I am having a bit of trouble with the decision. I love both platforms and have been looking at a SIG m400 or a m70. Sigs are about $350 more but can buy locally. Ak would have to order but have plenty of ammo for it already with my SKS. Whats y'all's opinion? I hate when I get like this because ideally I would rather have both but that's not feasible.

I prefer aks over ARS but you basically have a 2 piston ak already. Id get the ar first, if not only to piss of liberals

What I don't care for the Sigs is the built in pushbutton sling holders on the receiver. But other than that, they are AR's

I do like some of the things they have done. Several things to the bolt and carrier group. Plus the enhanced versions come with the furniture I would end up putting on one.

What is the application you want the rifle for, plinking, self defense? How many yards away? Need to establish what you want the rifle for and where/how it will be applied to make a decision.

the samples of the sigs ive handled ive felt were clumsy and a little off balance.

between a sig ar15 and ak47 i would go ak47 no question and i like the ar15 platform better.

Well im already good out to any range of roughly 800-1000 yards if I could hit that far. So mainly SD, plinking and shtf.
