    The AR is a great format, but the AK can feed cigarette butts and peanut hulls...even when it's filthy. LOL! I love both. I think in a SHTF situation, if I could grab one or the other, I'd probably grab the AK, just for the extra knock down power. Let the debates begin. :)

    I had it out the other day when the cracker's were in my yard.

    It was sort of like this, but i'm younger, asian, and had an AK :chuncky:

    I will take an AR over AK personally. The AK is a great platform and is very reliable and decently accurate without performing work, but I have more rounds down range with an AR and am way more comfortable with the operation of it. Plus my AR is BA!!!

    Buy both,then you got your bases covered.My AR is more accurate but the AK just seems more fun to shoot.I wouldn't want to be on the recieving end of either.

    I would grab my Polytech AKS 762 by default since I don't have an AR. I would like to get an A2 configured AR.

    I have a RRA AR and a Romanian SAR-1 AK. I wouldnt get rid of either, but if I had to pick just one I guess it would be the AR. I shoot it better (both setup with iron sites only). Both have been drop dead reliable. I guess I have 4-5k rounds down range with the AK and about half that on this RRA.

    This is the first AK I have ever owned. I always had AR15's. I have some plans for this on . Just converted it to a left side charging bolt carrier. I going put a shorted handle on it when I turn something up for in on the lathe and give it a MI fore rail and a splash of Sniper Grey!

    I've owned both, but settled on the AR. It is a very versatile platform.

    Not even a contest.. AK every time.. it might not be as accurate as the AR but it is going to work every time.. I seriously doubt one could pay me enough to own an AR.. :61:
