Should I watch that? Seems wrong to do that to a historical artifact. :frowning:

That hurt to watch a garand like that.lol One advantage for me on the AR is comfort. an AK stock is to short for me. I will say the magpul stocks make them a lot better. Another advantage is the selector switch position and operation. The AK is awkward to manipulate.

I progressed AK47 to VZ 58 to Kel Tec RFB ( hey some times you got to go off the rails) to AR15 back to VZ 58 then AR15 and Now AR10.

AK has the dumbest safety on earth and no last round bolt hold open.

2a Armament Xanthos Lite. Complete custom build. I wanted a .308 at less than 7.5 lbs (bare) without sacrificing reliability. So selected top shelf items for every aspect. Came out with a rifle that is right at 6 lbs naked. So shot well under my personal weight goal.

Yugo M64 U.S. nomenclature.
“M70A” in former Yugoslavia has a physical BHO.

So one variant (and one I can’t readily find in stock) has a BHO. If I’m going 7.62x39 I’ll take my VZ58

And to show that I am not one of those AR guys (or AK guys) who cast stones without having any real world expierence with the other.

Here is my AK47. She came to me pretty beat up but after a lot of TLC this is her today:

P.S. Name that flag for a beer.

And here is my D-Technik VZ58

The flag is Mozambique. And I back up the vz58 comment. I love them too. Just ask @Robert.

You can still find parts kits of the “M64”

Also VZ58 has one advantage over the AR and AK. I.e direct reload with stripper clips.

The selector switch decides it for me.

I can name 2 more variants with BHO. PSL, and Saigas. I see progression as an opinion. Which you are entitled to. I don’t see Keltec as 2 progressions above the AK. But that is my opinion.

The AK has a selector, and there are different variations within the different AK variants. I will give the Polish Tantal as one example.
