Top 10 AK Posts

By Woody published on in Chronicle, Rifles

The AK-47 is a selective-fire, gas-operated 7.62×39mm assault rifle, first developed in the USSR by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is officially known as Avtomat Kalashnikova, or in Russian slang, Kalash. Then there’s the baby brother, the AK-74. If you are into AKs, so are we. Here are the most-read AK-themed articles in the Shooter’s Log, including “A Buyer’s Guide to the AK Family of Rifles,” “The Great Debates: AR-15 vs. AK-47,” and “Converting Your AK-47 to be 922(r) Exempt.”

    A quick peek at the All AK’s, All The Time article told me that the Inter Ordnance rifles are supposed to be a bit more accurate. I wonder if any owners can atest to that here?

    Hey Rich, nothing against AK;s. I’ve got one somewhere. But if you want the best ‘bang for your buck’ AR-15′s are way cheap again. You can get a decent carbine for around 700. some even 600. now from Cheaper than Dirt, or CDNN arms. And there’s no comparison in terms of accuracy and tactical superiority over any AK, even the so called ‘nicer ones supposedly more accurate.

    The only time that AK’s were a good deal was when they went for a buck and a half some years ago.

      First of all, although 2 other guys on another CTD AK article are pushing their M1 Garand’s (on an AK article!!), I’m not really here to defend AK’s. I’m here to learn more about AK’s because I’m fascinated by them.

      With that being said, your argument has holes in it. I bought my AK pistol on CTD for $437. I bought my WASR-10 on CTD for $770, and it came with a slide-fire stock that I now have mastered. They are cheaper than AR-15 except for the sporter models.

      Then there’s the ammo. My ammo is cheaper than yours. I’m going to buy some for $4.99 per box of 20 tomorrow. The ammo is where the real savings is at. Your AR cannot fire steel cased ammo without damaging it. My AK’s were made for it. My AK’s are more robust..

      Accuracy you win. Caliber you don’t win. My bullets weigh twice as much, and are more powerful.

      It is a reported fact that American soldiers complained about their M16′s because the enemy kept coming after they were shot. Nuff said!

      I traded in my AR-15 3 months ago after I discovered what AK’s were all about. I own an AR-10 (.308), but no more 22 calibers for me. America has a fascination for 22 calibers, but not me.

      One more thing about accuracy, because I gave up too easily in my last post. I can easily hit the 200 yard target with my WASR-10. Ditto on the 100 yard target with my Zastava M92 AK Pistol. Easily!!

      Sometimes I crack up at AR-15 owners at the range. So many of them have their weapon clamped into some elaborate steel brace so they can get those perfect target patterns, but that’s not reality. One AR-15 guy was using steel cased ammo, and he very excitedly told me he was OK because he soaked it in WD-40 the night before (TRUE STORY!!)…..Whatever floats your boats guys!!!!….LOL!!!!

      I shoot my AK’s naturally and more realistically. And they hit what I’m shootin at!!!!

      Exactly what Richard from AZ said!!! Enough said. Mine is Dead on at 200 yards and 100 yards… too easy… .30 cal over .22 any day…. But he summed it up pretty nicely.. ty rich.
