Default Question, anyone fire both an M4/M16 and an AK-47?

Which has louder report an M4 in 5.56x45 or an AK47 in 7.62x39?

If the 5.56 has higher gas pressure and a higher muzzle velocity.

Anyone fire both weapons?

I've got both. The AR gives more of a high crack, where as the AK is a deeper crack. Both are loud.

the ak47 has a very distinctive sound when its fired at you...

but then the AR15/M16 does as well. if you have heard them both they are nothing alike in report. you can tell the difference between them. used to have a AK47 but i sold it back in the 90's. never could figure out why people like the crappy things.

Kind of an opinionated blanket statement. The AK is timeless.

Not to turn this into an AK vs M16 thread, but I got to disagree with you. Over the last ten years or so the number of professional militaries using the AK has gone from over 80 to seven, while the number of professional militaries using the M16/M4 has gone from twenty or so to almost a hundred.

As to the OP's question. IIRC the AK's report is two or three Db higher depending on the loading. Hardly noticable. Just different.

Are you in the military? Is that you in your picture?

Would you say they are both equally loud...just different?

Which sounds louder at a distance? The sharper crack of the 5.56 or the deeper boom of the AK round?

Hey why don't you stop by the Introductions section of the forum and tell us a little about yourself. Fair trade to answer your questions?
