Use both. AR for range, AK for close/shooting them through walls.

I would take an AK if I had one. They just look so goddamn cool.

If the SHTF doesn't involve an EMP, I plan to take everything I can throw in my truck within 90 seconds. Otherwise, it's only what I can carry

Since I shoot both on a regular basis, here's my opinion.

- AK: Takes a fucking beating like a whore. Will eat any kind of ammo, shoot under and circumstances. Only problem I've ever had with my AK was some questionable mag springs in some older Bulgarian mags. I shoot a decent grouping with it, good enough in a SHTF scenario. I could also attach my knife bayonet on it and go to town.

- AR: Extremely refined piece of art. Can shoot some crazy grouping. Very light compared to the AK. I have quite a bit invested in my AR and it's only going to get worse.

Hard choice for me. I would actually try to bring both and give one to my buddy. Both have it's pros and cons and will make an all around great battle rifle.

Depends where you are. for domestic purposes an AR would be preferable logistically while the same would be true for an AK in most parts of the world.

Have to agree. I like to stand off far off. I have the FNC for close and the FNFAL for long close. The .375 H&H bolt action keeps them away.

AR vs AK? Easy, Get a M1 Garand/M14/M1-A. You get the reliability and even more of a hard hitting round then the AK. And still have the beauty and accuracy of the AR.

I have both but If I can only have one it would be my AK. I love mine to death, I don't really know why.

Anything that can survive in climates as cold as Siberia, to the deserts of Egypt, and everything in between....I'll take an AK.

Only plus to the AR is the abundance of surplus .223 to be found in this country.
