The advantages of the AR x39 would be (properly modified to to fire surplus/commercial steel cased ammo, if needed) :
Quality of components vs the AK.
Overall accuracy is almost always better than the AK.
Better selection of quality parts/availability.
Availability of 16", 18", or 20" barrel lengths.
Ability to add/configure many tactical parts to the rifle.
Better ergonomics (although I don't find the AKs ergos to be as bad as some others claim)
More optics friendly (although AKs can readily accept optics, they lag behind in this area)
I added 2 more in red. I own fourteen AKs and enjoy them immensely, but reality is what it is. I love my x39 ARs.
