Having fired REAL AK's in use in Columbia, Guatemala and Honduras, I stand by my statement. you are lucky if the magazine stays in the weapon when firing bursts.


So you shot some shit that's been hanging around since the bay of pigs and have probably been finger fucked by half of central and south america so now all AK's are bad juju ?? Riiiiiiiiggght....

Amazing that in this country a 6-10,000 round gun is the best we can do. Not to mention the inherent reliability the AK offers over the AR-15(not to say the AR-15 is unreliable, just not AK reliable).

I will take the AR/M16 platform any day. It is battlefield proven and has been refined by numerous private enterprises in the US.


So youll take a weapon requirin overhaul every 6,000 rounds accordin to SOCOM and heavy amounts of lubricant over a 5.56 AK with 25,000+ parts life requiring little lubricant?


If you're using heavy amounts of lube on your AR, you're doing it wrong. 6-8 drops every 500+ rounds is about all you need.


And thats something to be proud of? You go right ahead and lube your rifle constantly. Ill stick to one that doesnt shit where it eats and holds lube for 3,000+ rounds...like the AK.

Its funny how Russia got it right yet America chose one of the worste systems possible to be a standard issue weapon....

Amazing how the AK can be accurate with good ammo, and still have 4-5 times the parts life of the "venerable" M4. For bein suh a great country we suck at weapons design.

Since when?

Everything I have seen about the Tavor suggests that it is EXACTLY like the SteyrAUG, in that you need a different bolt, and to disassemble it (obviously), to permanently switch it from right to left ejection.

Please tell me more about this button that exists on the Tavor.




Except the Tavor is MOAR AWESOMEZ because it is Israeli

OP, i guess you never heard of the Filthy 14.


Sure have, it broke its first bolt at 16,000 rounds under perfect range conditions and only semi auto fire at a rate of 500 rounds a day....phew thats some tough firin schedule. The barrel made it to 34,000 rounds but was getting 2MOA at 50yrds lol.

Again the AK will last practically forever on weak firing schedules and is good for 15,000 rounds of full auto fire. The M4 breaks at 6,000 when subjected to harsh firig schedules.


So you are complaining about 1 inch groups at 50 yards after 34k rounds? Or are you saying it was getting 2" groups at 50 yards? Which would mean 4MOA. I'd be satisfied with 4 MOA after 34k rounds. That means you are still getting good hits at 500 yards. What's the problem here exactly?

Its true, only thing with a worse history than the M16's adoption is the AR-10's tests early on, just look at the M110 SASS talk about a POS, theres a reason no one wants the M110.

OK, just forget for a minute the debate over AR vs AK. That's not really the issue.

The real issue here is that all fully auto firearms designed in the U.S. that weren't total crap were designed by individuals. Think John Browning and Eugene Stoner. The Hughes amendment to the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 made development of fully automatic weapons by anyone other than a large corporation with a defense contract illegal.

So now the only weapons development in the U.S. is done by large corporations doing design-by-committee based on meeting some government contract and satisfying some shareholders, instead of some guy in his workshop just trying to come up with the best weapon possible with no restrictions on what he can try and no requirements other than what is in his head.

The longer it lasts in auto the longer it lasts in semi. The M4 can get to 6,000 rounds when subjected to lots of auto. The AK can get to 15,000+ on auto and 30,000+ in semi.

Isnt 25k just the factory warranty even? I've yet to ever hear of a case where an e3 bolt was broken


And how many are out there? 10 or so? Vs the #1 weapon in the world? Yet you never hear of AK bolts breaking even 60yr old ones.


Here's one, I'm sure we can find 9 more in this thread

Well, obviously - that's THE central issue with bullpups.

And the SteyrAUG and Tavor have a partial solution to that, by being able to MODIFY the weapon for left ejection (but it requires additional parts). Thus my point that the Tavor doesn't really offer anything new over the 1970s design of the AUG. The FN2000 is truly ambidextrous because it has forward ejection, and thus it actually eliminates the main criticism of the bullpup design (but has other problems).

Don't get me wrong. I like the Tavor, and I'll probably end up getting one - partly because I am one of the biggest bullpup fans on this site. I just wish people would acknowledge that there's not actually anything new or particularly innovative about the Tavor. It's just an Israeli repackaging of a 70s concepts.


Now if they made a PS90 that shot 5.56 we would have something great. 50 round mags, bottom ejection, fully ambi, simple to work on and nice n tiny.

The longer it lasts in auto the longer it lasts in semi. The M4 can get to 6,000 rounds when subjected to lots of auto. The AK can get to 15,000+ on auto and 30,000+ in semi.


And I assume you have the personal experience to back up your claims.

Dang! Who originally said that? I know that is a famous quote, but I can't remember who.


Amazing how the AK can be accurate with good ammo, and still have 4-5 times the parts life of the "venerable" M4. For bein suh a great country we suck at weapons design.

OOHHH Me Want one!
Staying out ot this mess. I own both.
My go to is a light weight AR10



Ahh the AR10..the only weapon less reliable than the AR-15.


Oh now you've done it


Its true, only thing with a worse history than the M16's adoption is the AR-10's tests early on, just look at the M110 SASS talk about a POS, theres a reason no one wants the M110.


That was with DPMS AR10s though, Larue AR10s are good to go

OP, i guess you never heard of the Filthy 14.


Sure have, it broke its first bolt at 16,000 rounds under perfect range conditions and only semi auto fire at a rate of 500 rounds a day....phew thats some tough firin schedule. The barrel made it to 34,000 rounds but was getting 2MOA at 50yrds lol.

Again the AK will last practically forever on weak firing schedules and is good for 15,000 rounds of full auto fire. The M4 breaks at 6,000 when subjected to harsh firig schedules.


So you are complaining about 1 inch groups at 50 yards after 34k rounds? Or are you saying it was getting 2" groups at 50 yards? Which would mean 4MOA. I'd be satisfied with 4 MOA after 34k rounds. That means you are still getting good hits at 500 yards. What's the problem here exactly?


The irony is even the best AK's are 2moa at 50 yards out of the box if you're lucky


Is that the same as 2moa at 300 yards?

It amazes me we cannot move to a better gun with 30,000+ rounds parts life while places like Russia have a gun that is just that, meanwhile they developed the AK-12 making it as ergonomic as the AR-15, allowing for accessories to easily be attached and have a parts life in excess of 25,000 rounds...

Amazing that in this country a 6-10,000 round gun is the best we can do. Not to mention the inherent reliability the AK offers over the AR-15(not to say the AR-15 is unreliable, just not AK reliable).


You spelled your name wrong.


Damn!

What makes it trolling? The fact that I don't agree with everyone else or that facts show the AK is a more durable system than the 6,000 round M4.

SOCOM themselves said the M4 is a 6,000 round gun in that 2001 test they did.

Needs a gun that can fire 25,000 rounds because it takes that many to hit the same number of targets that an AR needs 2,000 rounds for.

Things like advanced coatings on the BCGs, or better triggers, stocks, flash hiders, ect.


How in the fuck does any of that stuff make the AR more battle proven?

I swear some of you guys want to pretend to be Mr. Major League Operator of ARF by dissing on Colts .gov rifles and dissing some other big names in the business at the same time.

Do you even own a BCG with an "advanced coating"?
I do (NiB-X) it's nothing really that special...I would have just as soon bought a "Mil-Spec" phosphate BCM had it been available.

Are you seriously going to sit here on ARF and convince us that BCM and LMT "Mil-spec" bolts are sub-standard junk, because a company called FailZero makes shiny BCG's that don't require any lubricant?

The reality is, "Mil-Spec" is pretty damn exceptional quality, and just because you read in a magazine that some SpecOps unit wants something other than .gov issued Colts, then they must be complete shit.
