Thanks for the pics. all very nice rifles!! I am not one to bash other rifles the ak is a great short to medium range weapon and is well built to its own specs and designs. the 7.62s are well equiped and look outstanding !
dont get me wrong! i love the AK! it is my second favorite rifle as evidence in the picture. it has never failed me, and to answer the other question....i would probably take the AK in a zommbbie fight for these reasons:
ease of more ammo;
can shoot it for a life time with out cleaning (i.e. reliability);
can tote in a vehicle easy;
can shoot faster with out muzzle climb;
can turn it into a side arm by taking the stock off;
that being said.....if we are shooting REAL zommbbies i.e. dead people that dont die easy , im taking the M14 with the red dot. i have shot large rocks and milk jugs with both these type rifles and nothing is more explosive and devastating than the 7.62 x 51. it will take down anything with one shot. you can shoot a house down if you have enough ammo. but why not take both type guns in a fight?......hence the phrase "...having all bases covered."
now if it were the end of the world and i were to sail tomorrow.....i would take two M14s.....wrap one in plastic kept in the hull of my boat and have the scoped one on the deck looking for pirates.
forgive the fantasy talk, but you can take it as metaphor for what i think these rifles can do.GITEN
