Apparently some of the AK users haven't seen the future weapons segment on the HK 416 lol ...
the reality is especially with a short stroke gas piston and a reputable and quality built AR you can put them through a large amount of punishment
and have them continue to fire...
Also the bouncing off the windshield myth in regards to AR bullets is just that a myth... I've tested my AR on several windshields at varying degrees
of obliquity and never had it fail to penetrate yet at the same time I tend to double tap just to be safe lol.
I've owned quite a number of both AR's and AK's as well as Fal's and etc and at the end of the day what works best for me is the AR platform. But at
the same time I hold nothing but respect for the AK platform which has it's uses but I'll take my 500 meter reach out and touch you reliably option.
As well as my ability to take very quick follow up shots.
This new upper does look to be a major quantum leap .... I am wondering how compatible it would be with 7.62x39, 5.45, 6.5 grendel, or other
chamberings and or the MGI military modular lower.
Oh and this is not the first company to use a long stroke gas piston in an AR variant there are one or even two companies already producing
