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 ;)
