    Immaterial as the AKs normal folks can get routinely have very fundamental QC issues.

    And even ones made in the "good" factory have quite a bit of hand fitting.

    Meanwhile, absent a few bottom feeders, we can get any number of manufacturers AR's with excellent/superior quality control.

    When they are cheaper I wanted an AK, but nine out of ten of the ones you could get had issues.

    And now that they are the same or more as a top-notch AR, and you still might get issues... Meh, I'll just shoot Grendel. And be careful during my frequent amphibious assaults under fire.

    What got me back into AR's was this video to be honest. It fired 30 mags on full auto until the gas tube burst. It was already on fire by the 15th mag. It's a decent system a lot easier to work on than an AK but I still like my AK's overall and enjoy owning both along with other rifles of interest. Now I just need a Class III Colt.

    1168, meet 7n6.

    You should read up on some of the other "requirements" he's talked about for a rifle.

    Drop test from 10m onto concrete.
    Submersion in lava at Mt. Doom.
    Shot into low orbit by a rail gun.
    Frozen into carbonite.
    Able to fully function up the ass of an elephant or in the belly of a whale.
    Child soldier compatible.
    Etc.

    You don't go backwards on reliability and durability- you move forward to create something even better, not weaker.

    Class III refers to 01/03 FFL/SOT dealer license, not a class of firearms. Title-2 firearms refers to those firearms regulated by the NFA. Itís a big pet peeve of mine when people (including dealers) use the incorrect term ďclass III firearmsĒ.

    All that said, yes you do need a fullauto Colt M16. Everyone does.

    I liked the video of the M4A1 because it was a testament to it's capabilities- if not outright impressive. As far as me personally getting a transferable M16- I figure the novelty would wear off pretty fast. Truth is though, looking at how things are going objectively- I've been thinking about adding more compact weapons to my collection. Specifically rifles that are very discrete with folding stocks.
