Making Fun of the AR

Miguel has a graphic reminder that it’s not a perfect platform. However, I’d note the AK-47 has the ergonomics you’d expect from a rifle fielded by a brutal communist regime. One reason I prefer the AR platform is the ergonomics is just a lot better. Think about changing a magazine on an AR and an AK, and you’ll see what I mean. I can shoot my AR all day and enjoy it. I’ve just never felt the same way about the AK platform, and I have both an AK-47 patterned rifle and an AK-74 patterned rifle.

  1. Why do you need to change magazines? Because AR magazines are made with the same type and thickness of tinfoil you’ll find in a chocolate wrapper. With an AK, the magazine itself is a weapon!

    Kidding aside, the AR platform is awesome, but it is the owners I love to mess with. It is the love of hanging every piece of new crap in them that makes the gun unreliable and that is an operator malfunction, not a gun problem.

  2. Assuming ergonomics irks me. Everyone is different – I find the AR awkward as hell to operate. The AK fits me quite well. Therefore I have five AKs and no ARs.
