    The 'who has an AR' thread has 2.877 replies and 90,700 views.

    As one gun writer likes to point out, the AR is a pretty fun plinker. Many high ranking military types find it to be severely lacking as a battle rifle. It's only in use in so many nations (as is the 5.56 round) because the USA shoved it down their throats.

    100 million+ AKs have been made. In service still in dozens of nations. The USA is one of the big players as far as dealing in these things. A Russian schoolboy can strip one down in less than 40 seconds. The simplest peasant soldier can keep it functioning. The few cleaning supplies needed can fit in the palm of your hand. Dependable as hell. A few of the original Russian made milled reciever AK47s are still being used today. The average world-wide cost of one is only about $250. Simple, reliable. Accurate? On a spray and pray battlefield, that's hardly relevant.

    So who has a variant of Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov's creation?
    (perhaps only a few here own a genuine Avtomat Kalashnikova- which is the full-auto/selective fire original)

    Much like most of Russia's weapons, tanks, and aircraft simple and effective.

    Draco 7.62x39 pistol. Before anyone loses their feces and sends a letter to the ATF, an AFG is allowed on a pistol. A VFG makes it a AOW. Future plans include paperwork and a SBR for this one.

    My dad has been looking to buy one for awhile, but refuses to buy one unless it's a milled receiver. He goes to gun shops every week looking around for something to buy. He has like three AR's now and wants to get another one with a slide fire stock.



    Badass!! :cool:

    Personally to clean the AK to my idea of clean takes a lot longer than to clean the AR and I could strip both down equally fast, the bolt on the AR is easier though IMO, I still love both though.

    Nice guns. These deserve a thread of their own.

    Milled receivers: I have read that the pressed steel ones are better. With extreme use, the stamped ones flex, whereas milled one tend to crack. I have no reference to link to so as to back this statement up.

    My pair of Saiga shotguns, .410 & 20 guage. Imported in the .90s by EEA. Cheaper than the current ones. Used for hunting birds, rabbits & whitetail deer (20g slugs)
