I guess that would be true if your going mudding with the ak. Love my ar never had any issues and plenty of options for it on the market.
if your hunting hogs and deer go with 308 and get good quality glass dont buy cheap glass

The AK is a reliable weapon, but I could never own one or use the 7.62x39 round that our enemies use against us. That's just me.

It's not the gun....it's the enemy...but I get your point and respect it.

if by reliable you mean less accurate, terrible trigger, weird ergonomics, and horrid sights, I suppose that would be true.

The only 7.62 I want is one of the little Yugo PAP m92's to play with. More of a toy than anything, but it is always nice when you can pick up a case of ammo for under $250.

That being said, I love my DDm4v1 and my blackout SBR.
