    AK - a very reliable machine! If you bury him, then he will shoot 200 years later! That will puzzle archaeologists!

    Come on! By the nature of my service, I dealt with the M16 (on special missions), and, as they say, kept the AK from the cradle (in addition to 33 years of service in the Secular Army, another 7 years at the Suvorov School). I would never trade a Kalash for an American. She quite often refused combat conditions, is very whimsical, and even more difficult. And in such conditions, in which the AK was used - God forbid to deal with the M16!
