You opened a can of worms, with incorrect statements flying out the wazoo.They other one is cheap, not quite as accurate. has low tolerances and is portrayed as evil in almost all movies. not to mention doesnt require cleaning or much maintenance and looks better dirty
Does that work or did I open a can of worms?
I dont believe they are incorrect so much as they are more general. They AK generally IS more inaccurate than the AR (DUE to the ammo among other things). Yes it DOES need cleaning but generally speaking it can handle more "dirt".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...
This is the debate (sometimes heated) that happens every second Tuesday of every month around here..."What are the main differences between AK47 and AR15 given that they are both manufactured and not modified for comparison sake and that they have the same auto or semi-auto capability?"
