    Why compare these two the AK is an automatic rifle and the AR a single shot. I would have chosen to compare the AK-47 with the M16 seeing as these two guns have quite literally fought each other for decades.

    The AR is the civillian M16 pretty much. It is not single shot.

    You are correct, I looked up a little on it and you are right, I think I thought this way because not many have a class 3 weapon license and whenever I think fully auto/ burst fire for the US I think the M16 not the AR. I think the debate would make more sense with M16 V.S AK47.
    - gemie89 February 4, 2011, 11:33 am
    most ar's are single shot unless u have a license for full auto but im gunna agree on comparing the ak to the m16 they have been going head to head since Vietnam both are very exeptional weapons and both have there pros and cons my opinion the ak started out as a better weapon but as the m16 progressed its starting to get better but the ak is still keeping up with it
    - trevorGRAY March 4, 2011, 2:58 pm
    full auto isnt all its cracked up to be 3 round burst really is better you can pretty much do full auto with it is you want but bursting is much more accurate

    In my opinion the AK-47 is the superior weapon. It has a clean simple design, jams less and works better than other similar weapons in poor conditions. You can pretty much do whatever the fuck you like with it, drag it through mud, water and sand and it will still work fine.

    It uses a large round, meaning it has a lot of stopping power. The round has a more rounded nose, so it is a slower, less accurate bullet. But it packs more of a puch. So if it hits you, you're not getting up.

    However all can also be said for this:

    Scottish Claymore

    Clean simple design
    Jams less
    Works better than other weapons in poor conditions
    You can drag it through mud, water and sand and it will still work
    It has a lot of stopping power
    It is less accurate but if it hits you, you;re not getting up

    Of course if asked which I weapon I would rather take to war, the choice is obvious...

    Not really or rather just inaccurate the AK47 fires a 7.62mm head they come in various guises e.g hollow point and boat tail. Yes the head of the round is heavier but that doesn't make it less accurate, The (FAL) SLR is 7.62mm and that is very accurate, The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare fires a larger caliber .338 Lap Mag and that at the moment is the choice for snipers world wide (some do choose the Barret .50). The 7.62mm head will do more damage and generally has a shallower arc (as it has more propellant behind it), but the reason most military forces around the world have adopted the 5.56mm round is because you can carry more and it does less damage, so for every wounded soldier the "enemy" have to look after or evac the less forces are available on the ground.

    Can't argue with that, you clearly know your shit. I remembered reading it somewhere, but either I or my source must be mistaken.

    Isn't the AR-15 basicly the civilian version of an M4?
    - CTUDirector September 22, 2011, 9:06 am
    Pretty much yeah they just took out a few of the bells and whistles

    The ar is not single shot

  • 2

    I know I'm resurrecting an older post, but I don't care.
    I would rather have the AR-15 because it was designed to be customizable, while the original AK-47s weren't.
    But I would choose the HK416 over all of them.

    It can fire after being buried in sand, covered in mud, or submerged under water. And it's pretty sexy.

    Well I'm not a gun expert or anything but here in Khandahar all the Army/Marines are carrying M4's and the Spec Ops guys have AKs...so there you go.

    thats more for when the spec ops are behind line than can refill there ammo of dead people and use the same ammo so they are less trackable

    Think about it this way, Say you and someone else planned to kill each other in some sort of duel, and you could have the choice of weapon. You could choose the incredibly rugged gun, the AK-47, or you could have the cheap, AR15. Hard choice. The AK has outlasted time for many reasons. Besides which would you want to bring to a fight, a machete or a pencil?

    The AK47 is a fraction of the price of an AR15, well here anyway.
    - zebidybob August 15, 2011, 10:09 am
    I meant cheap as in the quality it is made in.

    I will take the AR-15 anyday. The Ak-47 to me is not made for seirous firefights. The more or longer you shoot the less accurate. The AR-15 or M16 you can shoot all day with little reciol.

  • 2

    I think people give the AR more credit for accuracy than it deserves and I think people bash the AK for its" in accuracy " more than they should. I have used both in combat and I will never take a DI m16 ,EVER. Give me the AK, Yeah you dont shoot pennies off fence posts at 200 yards with an ak but it is way more accurate than people give them credit for. It also works. I cleaned my AK 3 times in 16 months while everyone else would clean their precious m4s and m16s every day and still would encounter problems at least once a week. Now a piston AR, I like them.

    Also with all the accessories out for the AK now you can make them just as ergonomic and customizable as an AR... just in a different way. Even after all that I still come out cheaper buying an AK and fixing it up than buying a 1400 dollar shitty AR.

    well if i have to choose on looks of the pics, the AK, even though the AR has better accuracy if you need to throw a wall of lead at your oppenent, the AK is always a solid choise

    hmm... accuracy = AR15, reliability = AK47
    due to the ar15's closer fitting parts accuracy is good but it doesn't take much for a misfeed or jam.
    the AK's looser fitting parts mean it can shoot even when full of mud and sand at the cost of accuracy. both have full auto and semi auto versions, both can be made into a burst weapon as well with the correct aftermarket/custom made parts

    • February 4, 2011, 1:00 am
    The accuracy of a firearm is determined 1.A) by barrel length and 1.B) by barrel twist. 2. by the user. A loose fitting bolt may make it mis feed or more likely not allow the working parts to go fully forward (home) a loose breach will only make the cases unusable for reloading. The AK will also mis feed very easily if the magazine is allowed to touch the ground as the mag housing isn't deep enough and the mag has room to "rock" back and forth.

    I have an AK74 in 5.56mm and someone I know has an M16 but it has a stainless steel match grade barrel, so the M16 is more accurate but he also has an M4 and I can put down equal groups with the M4 and AK74 so accuracy isn't such an issue. I would always go for reliability over accuracy when being shot at because what is the point in having the most accurate weapon in the world if you can't actually shoot back? my AK74 also has the CAA tactical conversion kit so it has adjustable butt and picatinny rails.

    Ill just take this aa-12

    - buddyfoeva August 12, 2011, 12:15 am
    That's all very well if you are engaging a target out to a maximum of 50 meters but I will take you out at a mile with this

    - CTUDirector September 22, 2011, 9:06 am

    No room for CODSpeak here. Just saying, Battlefield applies more here than COD, mainly because there are some real physics. COD doesn't have any.

    forget them, lets not forget one of the best, if not THE best machine gun design of all time - the good old MG42

    mg42 - ak-47 vs ar-15= whos the best??

    Huge rate of fire for a GPMG, very powerful, highly effective calibre, highly robust and one of the most feared machine guns ever. pure legend.

    I would take the AK. Its more powerfull than the AR and more reliable. It might not be a accuate and it has weight but the Russians do know their shit.

  • 1

    I personally enjoy AR's more than AK's simply because of their versatility, accuracy, and mobility. I find AK's bulky and not as versatile.

    Ak-47 because i could totally beat the shit outta it and and it will still fire, plus the ammo goes through most bullet proof armors and does a ton of damage. The only down fall i see is its weight both in weapon and ammo...

    And My Favorite gun is probably An M1 Garand :D

    Having used both, we prefer the AK to a AR15 (Or a M4, or a M16, smartasses). It just plain feels better.

    This would depend on what I was wanting to do. If I wanted to just light something up then I would prefer the AK. But if I was trying to be tactical in anyway whatsoever then I would prefer the AR. Lighter bullets, more accurate, and the bullet goes farther. But if I was just fucking around, which I never do, *looks around suspiciously* then I'd take the AK. This really isn't a good comparison. It's like comparing a .22 to a .40, just can't really say.
