Don't trip over yourself John, trying to make the AK-47 look like the weapon that the world armies need to be effective........


Having said that, the US will be changing over to the XM29 Program within the next few years.....
The program contains or involves:
* The OICW- this will be given to 4 men out of a squad of 9
* The others will be going to the XM8 LAR

"XM8 Lightweight Assault Rifle"

There is no doubt the AK is a superior battle rifle
American arms are to close tolerance they jam & foul more often leaving their owner defenseless.
In my opinion the FN-FAL is superior to both the above
in the .308 config
world.guns.ru...

Is Art Leatherwood still using one ?
His scope can turn the above into a 1000 yrd machine.

i think im starting to lean toward the german rifles after doing a little research..


g-36The G36, in severely modified form, also is used as a "kinetic energy" part of the US XM-29 OICW weapon. It also appears that in this form it also can be adopted by US Army as the separate XM-8 light assault rifle, to replace in the near future not so successful Colt M4 carbines, which are now in service with US military

The standard G36 rifles can be fitted with the HK AG36 40mm underbarrel grenade launcher.

G3 and FN-FAL are both good as rifles..

But AK..

Is SMG, in Russia.. did you know that?



So these weapons arent even in the same class..

And also.. G3/FN-FAL are not suitable for Full-automatic or burst fire.. because of the MASSIVE RECOIL that 7,62x51mm NATO [aka .308] gives..

The m16 is being made by colt if you want another version of the same rifle you have to go to Dimaco
and take the c7 and the c8 its allmost the same riffle.

If you knew even little bit about these weapons..

But then again..

If you knew the facts,

You wouldnt even ask..



My last comment to this foolish topic:

AK is better than M-16..

AK is THE ASSAULT RIFLE..

AK is the best available.

arms.host.sk... is AN-94 the best AK ever?



In a 100 m range burst mode 2 bullets make one hole what significantly increases piercing effect. Overall the AN-94 rifle is more accurate than the M16A2 automatic rifle considering that the 5.45-mm Russian round has a lower ballistic and piercing characteristics (is less accurate) than the standard 5.56-mm NATO cartridge.

You see from the page to which i gave the link for..

There is no 5,45x39mm M74 'AK-10x' Rifle..

There is only carbine..

And this is because 'AK-10x' in 5,45x45mm M74 is AK-74M..

That has been Russian standart firearm since 1991..




AK-74M with grenade launcher, night scope and bayonet!




IN My opinion the AKs-74m is the best weapon in a battle field!

Damn I LOVE THAT WEAPON!

They probably arent in the same class but they almost

always fight each other.

For example Veitnam war, Iraq war, etc.

I know the facts but this thread is about what others

think not me only.

IF you think that AK is better then so be it.

Someone else thinks M-16 is better

that maybe because the people who make the m-16 are not allowed to sell their weapon to half of the countries that want it.. but yeah i think its like 90 million ak's have been produced
