    Interesting. IMHO, The "concepts" of "Assault Rifle" & "Battle Rifle" are somewhat up to the individual.
    In my personal case, I use the terms "Combat Rifle" & Tactical Rifle" depending on the "scenario"
    1. Situations where the range is CQ or under 300 yd.s &/or the quarters are restrictive ( urban, brush etc.) = SOCOM16 (7.62 NATO )

    The configuration pictured is with a 4x "scout scope" for longer ranges. I also have a "tac sight" for CQ. BUT I prefer the "peep" sights on the gun for both. The sling is a "giles"

    The biggest neg., IMHO, of this gun is the ear shattering noise. ( I have a set of "electronic ears" that are carried on the gun. Hope I will have time to acquire them ) The up side is that with the muzzle break, the recovery is FAST & the recoil is sweet.

    BTW, I use this gun for hunting also. ( 5 rnd mag & hand loaded rnd.s ( NATO spec w/ silver tip bullets )

    2. Situations where longer range is called for = M14

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Why is this even an argument? What's so hard about calling them all fighting rifles, or just rifles?

    thanks for those who actually had real input on the OP's question.
    I really learned alot.

    Assault rifle and battle rifle are two seperate things with historical literature to prove so. Just because you think an AK which generally can't hit for the average user over 100-150 yards, is NOT a battle rifle. Yes, you can take it into battle, but it's not classified as a battle rifle. It's a short range rifle(100-300 yards) with an intermediate cartridge between a submachine gun and a machine gun, with a detachable mag and select fire.

    Several people have cited and further explained the differences, this isn't a debate.
