I really don't think so. Unless they can keep the same reliability and ease of use with more accuracy.

Can't bury that one in the sand for 20 years, pull it out and fire it right away. When we have nuclear winter and the cockroaches take over, they'll be using AK-47's that we buried to fight their wars.

H&K is coming out with a version of the AR-10/15 that doesn't use direct impingement and therefore will not be as easily turned to **** as the others. I'm looking forward to buying one, unless I decide to buy something else.

Not like it matters until 2008. Fucking California.

Also, a whole fuckton of people would probably argue that the M14 is just about as reliable as the AK. I'm not currently a lover of the M14, but I imagine I will be converted one day.

What version of the AK do you refer to, Sirc?

And if you had an Irish Rifle Association you could have one!

I've heard of a video in which a guy fires some 700+ rounds through an AK until the wood stocks start smoking. Tried a search, no dice.

If there was any thread for that clip to be posted, it's this one.

Someone find it please!!!

This (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XM-29) looks promising.

Cant happen. My RPK allegedly SHOULD not do more than 80 rds in 1 minute (mind you with a trigger mod it supposedly does 500rds per minute but its semi-auto). The orginally RPK not semi-ed should do 600 rds per minute.

However the drums only go up 100rds... So there is some magswitching and cool down involved.

However the 80rds in 1 minute safely is a limitation on Barrel Wear and heat stress on the RPK, which has a heavier barrel than the stardard AK-47. I'm careful with the heat stress because the barrel is essitaily not replaceable.

So I dont doubt somebody set their stock on fire with an AK-47 (the wood does get hot and you can by a polymer heat shield for this), but I do doubt that the barrel held up without warping for 700 rounds as fast as you can load and fire.

But... I wouldnt know I dont go out and try to break my prize gun.

Oops didn't see that. Oh well I guess I would have to go with the Ak.

Antifa - So what you're saying is that it is technically impossible to fire 700+ rounds through a russian-made AK without the barrel warping?

:(



You can use that OICW weapon in the punisher video game. Its not great, but it has a grenade launcher.

in like 2 minutes.... yeah impossible. what would break first is an open question... but if you loaded and fired it on full auto as fast as you could you would not make it to 700 rounds without some failure.
