I'm surprised no one has brought this up since this is gun DEBATE: AK-47m or AR-15? Which is better?

It depends on what you want to do. The AR-15 is more accurate in the hands of a novice shooter, but the Kalashnikov is very reliable and inexpensive to manufacture. The AR system can be very reliable, but only if you keep the rifle clean and well maintained.

If the shit hit the fan though, I'd take both if I could. If there's not a lot of time to clean rifles, ARs will start malfunctioning. You can mistreat the hell out of an AK and it'll still shoot.

I think in a survival situation though, I'd rather have a nice FN-FAL chambered in .308, or an M-14, than either of them :)

The AR15 is not necessarily more accurate if you have to shoot through a tree to hit a bullseye though ;)

it takes three torso shots to kill someone with an AR-15. It takes one with an AK. 'nuff said.

a vet from iraq told me. they know from experience. also, ar-15 is either semi or full-auto. so either you dont have any firepower, or youre wasting ammo. if it were me, id take a CAR-15 with M203. yeah, baby.

3 torso shots? The guys in DC did pretty well, killing a few dozen with single shots.

You might want to hit the "reply to this" link of the poster to whom you're responding.

The AK is only the most accurate, I believe Slayzar means, when it's being held overhead from behind a burnt-out car ;) Still, not many guns you can do as much as the soviets did testing those and still have fire... Tough call, I think I'd want both. A small round through the eye is good, but sometimes you need to spray from the mud.
