AK's

People always post dumb shit in refference to AK's.Like it looks like its only been dropped once dumb shit. Most are made in white countries such as Russia Bulagaria and so on. When I hear that dumb refference I would say there are very few AK's actually made by Arab countries in comparrisson to others. There are a lot of US Soldiers using Ak's in the middle east right now and especially SOCOM. I personally think they are excellent guns and rarely have to be cleaned.

I can't understand what the fuck you're trying to say.

Dumb gun owners scare me more than the apocalypse.

LOL at this thread



The AK is what it is.... a cheaply made battle rifle that implements the "bullet hose" method of bringing down a tango rather than relying on accuracy. The shitty sights cannot compare to the peep sights America has used since WWII.

That being said, I fucking hate my AK. Its inaccurate, not as reliable as my AR15s, and without auto fire an AK is damn near useless at any real distance.

At anything under 100yards, my AK is just as reliable as any of my AR platform rifles.

As a close range battle rifle or home defense rifle, the AK gets the nod. I've seen what a 7.62x39 does to a person at close range, and it's disgusting. That being said, I've also seen what a .223 does, and it's just as bad, but i'd rather have a 150 gn bullet to go through a windshield/door/body armor, etc. instead of a 55-62 gn bullet.

I don't see how distance has any bearing on the reliability of a weapon. Maybe you mean accurate?

No not butt hurt I just get tired of people talking shit about the rifle or making dumb remarks about AK's when they know nothing about AK's. Or have just tried out there buddys cheap ass WASR-10 and think there all piece of shit. AK's were way ahead of there time look at all the new AR's and AR style rifles coming out the moving towards a gas piston style setup like the AK's.That should tell you something. As far as sights go its all in what your use to I have no problem with AK sights but Iam use to nice optics.

I'll agree with you there, but I dont have $1200 laying around either.

Someone will probably say it's a repost but I dont give a crap.

EDIT: A piston upper AR in 6.8/6.5 or .308 seems to be the winner in this argument.

That whole ping and letting the enemy know youre reloading is about as much BS as GIs carrying around empty enblocs to throw around tricking enemy soldiers they're reloading.

Loaded, reloaded, what's the difference? It's still new ammunition. There's no need in throwing away perfectly good brass.

ak's are pieces of shit
you can't hit anything so who gives a shit if they're reliable

The only thing funnier than this thread is watching all the mexican's at gunshows drool over them like they're something great.
What a bunch of posers. They must watch too much tv, or they just don't have the money for an 'interesting' gun (meaning it's accurate)

Now go back to trying to sell that POS and quit trying to convince us it's worth anything.

There are shit AK's and nice ones just like there are shitty 94 CBR's and nice bikes. I would like to see your intresting rifles that are so great. Im curious to see what a high end collection you have.

LOL, we took a HK21e to some range a couple of weeks back to use up some ammo.

Some guys were inside looking at it and wanting to know if we reloaded our brass. Told them no, we just throw it away to much effort. They hung around for hours waiting for us to start shooting so they could collect it all up.

Later they found out why we dont bother reloading when every piece of brass has the neck crushed or split. Good luck with that.

There's a difference between "throwing away perfectly good brass" and "throwing away unusable shit."

I believe China is putting out the most AK47's nowadays.

Those that talk trash about the AK's have probably never been on the business end of one. When my brother went to the litter box for Desert Storm, he was happy to pry an AK from the enemy's cold dead fingers and shoot them with their own guns.

With good cover, my Maadi will hit center mass good enough for me to give any platoon a real problem.

Thank you!

If I can hit 'em at 100 yards in the lungs thats all I give a rats ass about. If I want long rang accuracy piss on a .223 give me something in .308, 7.62x54R.

The difference is between new and fired brass.

You are absolutely correct about perfectly good brass, but once there is even the hint of separation or any abnormal deformations, it's nothing but a piece of scrap.

Dude, with this logic, can I put you at 100 yards and take a few shots with my AK???

I bet I can make you leak with the first shot..... And if I don't I have 74 more rounds ready in the drum....

Blah blah blah.

I love hearing people talk trash about a .223 round. I've shot deer with .223 and it drops them pretty good. There are thousands of people who have been killed with 223. I don't want to ever get hit by a .22 Long Rifle let a lone as by a 2800+ fps 223. Bullets do nasty things when they hit you.

If you want a home defense weapon, just get a 12ga Shotgun. 00 Buck at close range will screw anyone up and shotguns are very very very reliable.

I personally think a SKS is a better gun than a AK. My AK is pretty accurate up to about 100 yards. SKS actually shoots accurately up to about 200 yards. (Its got a longer barrel, and probably a better design on the gun). The thing I liked about 7.62 x 39 was that ammo was like 1.50 a box about 5 years ago. Its gotten a lot more expensive.

A M1A/M14 are HEAVY when you load them up, but they are really accurate and reliable. 308 ammo isn't that expensive if you go out and buy the battle packs (surplus ammo), or the russian ammo. I've bought a ton of Silver Bear 308 for 4.97 a box at cheaper than dirt about 2 years ago. I'm not sure how much they go for a box now.

223 is a good round also. I've killed deers and hogs with it. Two years ago, you could have bought this ammo for under 2 dollars a box, but today, I've heard that its more than doubled in cost.

Thank god for my hording skills 5-6 years ago when I bought ammo.
