Nice vid...good general overview.
They could've thrown into the comparison something about the updated AK47 (AK74) being chambered down from 7.62 to 5.45.
Does that say that... at least as far as a philosophy of ammo goes... the M16/M4 model won the debate?
At any rate, thanks for the post.

I didn't watch the video but based on my experience with the two weapons the ak wins on the durability/reliability (hell they can shoot under water). M16 wins on accuracy of course. Maybe because of the round though I would like to see a 5.56 converted ak and how well that does.

I had an AK 84, which was an AK chambered in .223. It was a great gun, but it was extremely loud. It was accurate and worked flawlessly.
I traded it for a .300Mag Sendero.
hecks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

Correct me if I'm wrong IIRC it all has to do with the barrel and bolt lockup not to mention if the barrel is free floated etc.,the mini 14 is 223,but on average is less accurate than the AR platform.

I've never personally used a mini 14 so I can't really say anything about it. Yes the barrel and bolt lockup has alot to do with it which is why I said the above. However I'm pretty sure the AK is considerably accurate up to 300 yrds, (though we all know accuracy is really based on the person using it) but 300 is what I was taught in the marines.

But I believe we agree just in different terminology.
