    Again, it's no so much the barrels as it is the handguards. Most AK handguards get much hotter, much faster than most AR handguards. So, your options are to shoot slowly, buy aftermarket handguards/foregrips, or adjust your grip so that your support hand is on the mag well/receiver. Or, buy an AR. :)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
