There was another good thread running on this so I didn't want to hi-jack it but which do you prefer AR or AK? and what do you like or dislike about them? I've never owned either one but I had a buddy who had a AR that had a shortened barrel that he got with his tax stamp. He also had a Romanian WASR AK. After playing with both of them an afternoon I liked the Romanian AK better. Its what I would have got for myself. Which one do you prefer?
