Sometimes a picture is actually worth a thousand words of description.

It's the ARAK. There you go. The best of both worlds. It's an Avtolite Kastonerkova!

Kinda what a piston upper does. Or kinda what the Sig 556 is ( A .223 AK action using AR mags).

Not much exciting about that , just another piston driven AR in .223

Never heard it described like that before. I like it. Think I'm gonna use it.

Some people would say you can get a piston AR and get the reliability of a AK (for twice the price of a AK)

Or instead of wasting the money you can just buy a AK.
I love and have worked with both platforms but I go AK any day of the week.
Both my AK and AR have never let me down, just a preference, I like the feel of the AK piston/bolt carrier better when shooting. Nothing like the heavy KaChunk.

To those people I'd say, how was your AR15 unreliable? This is not your grandpas M16 in the wet jungle with fouling ammo in 1963. Unless maybe you burrow through the dirt stalking thy neighbor, then expend 2000 rounds in a hurry... It's an old wives tale. Let's respect the AK platform for what it is, and be fair to the Stoner.

Edit. Agreed on the kaching for fun, but for real life apications a non reciprocating charge handle is a better design.
