I saw this vid when it

I saw this vid when it origionally aired on discovery.

This arguement can go on for decades. They are both fine weapons who served their purpose. They both have pros and cons.

versus

This is a great video that gives information on both weapons. I can not say anything that Reaper has already said above me.

Ak-47 vs. M16

Yes you can compare the ak 47 and the M16 with stopping power and accuracy but you must look and how the Ak 47 is so easy to use and produce. Now for a large country like the U.S. that has a huge production line for weapons, producability is not a large factor. Now for smaller countries that has small production ability then that is a huge factor. The Ak is so soldier friendly, you can pour dirt into the action and it will still fire. This is important to countries that dont have the correct military training. Now over all, looking at performance it is a personal preferance. Do you want the power and friendlyness of the ak, or the accuracy and tactical advantages of the the M16. Now as for me I am a M16 kind of guy.

the ak47 fires a big round but it is slow i like the lighter faster round. Also since the 5.56x45 is lighter then you can carry a lot more ammo.

If you find yourself in a fair fight YOUR tactics SUCK!

yup

No way to deny the 47 power. I have shot both and would personaly choose the 16 every day of the week. Although I do plan to put a 47 in my collection before a 16 due to cost diffrences.
