    I am another who has several of both. I’ve noticed that I tend to take the ar’s to the range much more than the ak’s. I took an ak to the range this past weekend for the first time in a long time(years). So long that it took me a second or two to remember how to lock the mag in. But I had a ton of fun shooting it.

    If I had to pick though, I would go with the ar. Ton’s of fun and I have never had a problem with them . Not to mention accessories are very easy to find. Common things like mags tend to be cheaper also.

    Can’t go wrong with either. But after years of shooting both, I’ve become more of an ar guy.

    I like the magazine feed/eject of the AR and the fact that the bolt locks open on the last round.

    I like the safety on the AK since it doubles as a dust cover.

    I like the standard muzzle break on the AK compared to the flash hider on the AR.

    I have a broken left elbow that doesn't supinate fully and makes it difficult to get a proper foregrip on a long gun and the AK feels more comfortable than the AR to me. I do have a vertical fore grip on my AR that helps there.

    BTW I heard this at my LGS last week. There was an explosion at the Cugir Arms Factory in Romania last month and may result in the end of Century Arms importing of WASR AKs. He had one WASR 10 on the wall for $729 and doesn't think he'll be getting more.

    From whats been said it was only a small portion of the factory and it should not delay production importation up very much at all. It's more likely that Century themselves will slow importation down on purpose so they can push their latest dumpster of an AK the VSAK onto the ignorant public.

    The AR15 platform has a definitive edge in ergonomics and human engineering.

    This was a harder question a few years back when ARs were expensive and AKs cheap.

    Today, if you want a cheaper, better, easier shooter that's more fun at the range and better at HD - AR all the way.

    If you want a stupidly reliable survival weapon, that can take nearly all North American game and will last till the end of the world (provided you saved enough ammo), AK.
