Railed hand guards are a great means to mount accessories to a rifle. However they can get in the way when you don’t need them. They can tear up gear and barricades if they are not covered. Additionally the rails can be damaged to the point that they no longer accept accessories.
AK or AR? Which is better? The argument goes on and on and on. Both platforms have been in the hands of warriors for decades. They have been on both sides of the fight for freedom and oppression. These rifles have evolved from simple battle implements to railed and accessorized monstrosities.
In our comparison I refuse to conclude which rifle is “best”. I am more concerned with helping you to determine what rifle may be best suited to your specific situation. I own both rifles and feel that either would be well suited to most legally justifiable civilian engagements.

We just got a nice box of goodies from Promag containing a new Archangel AK Adjustable stock set. I was excited enough to shoot a little video. This is a quality, solid feeling stock. It is pretty heavy duty and confidence inspiring. Can’t wait to get it on our WASR 10 and take it out to the range!

With ammunition and reloading components in short supply I am fanatical about picking up my brass. This used to be a very time consuming process on the concrete firing lines and almost impossible if the grass had not been recently mowed. During local matches I would almost always loose a handful of cases. Not any more! Continue reading 3Bucc Brass-Savr Brass Catcher Review→
