re: #12 Dark_Falcon
Everything about what I read about the AK and training says it is very simple in terms of operation and use. It’s long range accuracy always sucked though but many theories out there state that that is no longer a factor in warfare (though it turns out that is wrong - in Afghan like terrain long distance is a factor but in urban warfare not so much since fighting is done closer up. etc).
I think the US govt is working on a base rifle model that will be adoptable to the mission.
