Hello, Im doing an essay on why the AK-47 is better than the M4 and vice versa...Does anyone have any websites, news articles, or gun manufacturers that could help in my research?

THey both got thier strengths and weaknesess. Do your research and come up with your own opinion of the 2. Sorry, no links, but it's so easy to google m16 vs ak or whatever. Good luck.

Try it this way. Ask the question in here: "Why is the AK platform superior to the AR platform?" Then in the AR discussion forum ask this: "FROM A TECHNICAL STANDPOINT, why is the AR platform superior to the AK platform?" Make sure to ask it JUST LIKE THAT over there... and ignore the chatter about BCM beats LMT beats Colt beats Spikes beats Noveske beats Mega beats ...

this is some funny shit right there but so fucking true. but here you go kid. both are battle rifles. the ak is/was made to clear trenches be dirt cheap to make and fire in all conditions without to much maintence. the m16/ar15 was designed to percise tolorences and do everthing the ak can do including being a sniper rifle. but needs to be cleaned and cared for. theres alot more info to be had about both but thats a simple breakdown in my opinion. oh i forgot neither were made to hunt game but can. both were designed to kill people and they both do it very well.

I think a general consensus is an AK is more reliable than an AR but loses accuracy as a trade off for it.
An AR is more accurate and has better ergonomics but it's trade off is that it's more prone to malfuntions due to tighter clearances of moving parts and it's DI gas system.

Do a search on Youtube, theres a ton of videos on there about it.

I can tell you from owning both, I've never had a problem with either and like them both.

As soon as our allies in Afghanistan, the Northern Alliance saw our M-4's perform, especially at longer ranges, they immediately and aggressively asked for them as aid, the US refused.
