  1. Nice infographic!

    But I think it isn’t quite a good idea to imply that AR-15’s can fire 700-950 rounds per minute since the vast, vast majority of AR-15’s sold in the United States are not fully-automatic and the fastest trigger finger in the world won’t get anywhere near that rate with a civilian semi-automatic version.

    Also, the proportions for the 5.56 round look a little bit off to me.

  2. Um, the accuracy ratings of both rifles are greatly exaggerated. 10 MOA?!

    Also, WTF is up with that infographic getting the 5.56 and 7.62×39 cartridge pictures flip-flopped?

  3. .30 cal . against a .22 55 gr. no brainer, both went head to head in Vietnam . who pulled out ? ak is more reliable and has more knock down power,. all the better assult rifles are piston operated. Germany’s new h k 416 ,piston operated. its a no brainer ak 47 dominates the ar platform,.

  4. I stopped building ARs awhile ago. It’s too much work explaining it to people who just want to spend $500-$700 on a cool looking gun. AR vs AK is like race car vs dump truck. You can talk about payload and durability all day but when shiz starts happening fast your dump truck is getting left behind. Go rent Blackhawk down for a classic example of 1,000s if bullet hoses vs skilled riflemen with modern equip.
