Edumacate me 1001 Style on Diff between AR and AK's

All the hoorah seems to be on the AR's and not the AK's

Why so ?

I know AK's are "heavier" and are say 30 cal, a bigger round and both are semi autos.

Are AK's not made anymore and all in the hands of the "sand" armies ?

So why not an AK ?

AK's are built ruggedly and purposely sloppy to survive the abuse illiterate conscripts subject them to.

AR's are built with far more precision and with far more configurations to better fit the professional soldiers who carry them and their varying needs.

5.56 vs 7.62 is WAY overrated. Especially as a civilian, with modern SP and BT ammo available, the 5.56x45 can easily get the job done against 2-legged varmints. People who say otherwise are idiots.

they did talk about the durability of charlies guns and the abuse that they took and the ability to keep them patched together.. I think the ak's that charlie had were already old and used, and just kept getting passed down.
from what i remember.

And rightfully so. However, lot of improvement to the platform has been made since then.

Not by my dad. He said if you cleaned it like you are supposed to clean every gun you depend on, it was plenty reliable.

The original M16, without a forward assist or chrome-lined barrel was a turd. It was quickly replaced by the M16A1. With a more regimented cleaning procedure, it was fine.

The ammo they used in that era was light (52 grain?), fast and fragile. From a 20" barrel, at intermediate range, the bullet would disintegrate on impact with a human body, with good effect. The stopping power problem crept in after the war, as heavier bullets were used. Those bullets were designed to penetrate body armor and barriers better, and didn't disintegrate on impact. Rather they just punched a hole. It got even worse with the M4's 14" barrel.
