Typical of the govt, they've chosen a slightly upgraded AR as the "new" combat rifle. There's still no piston in the gas operation mechanism. Not surprisingly it, had the worst performance of the new rifles the Army tested. But the money will stay where it is ensuring good retirement jobs for the Generals. Gotta keep them priorities straight!
Yeah, my cursing does not compare to Seruzawa's cursing. When my AR would jam 15-20 times in an afternoon I didn't have someone returning fire. And when I had to field strip the firearm it was on the back of a pick-up truck not on the ground of a swampy jungle. But, Seruzawa can probably attest to the durability and ease in which the AK works and functions. Which is why I listed the SAR-1, which I do own.

The AK ammo tracers had a green tint, the US ammo tracers were more red. At night we could see firefights from the river between the Marines and the NVA with green tracers going in both directions. Fortunately, most of my personal experience was with Ma Deuce. Accept no substitute.

You can pick up an AK that's been literally buried in mud and it will fire.

AK-47.net: Romanian SAR-1

Chambered in the cheap-and-reliable 7.62x39 cartridge. I have cases of the **** buried strategically.

Somewhere.
