Had an interesting conversation with a new fellow in my unit today- his background is 1) 34 years old 2) ethnic russian
3) originally from Kazakstan, and 4) spent 3 1/2 years in the
Red Army prior to the Soviet Union disintegrating. Came to the
U.S. a few years ago and enlisted.
His views are that the AR/M16 malfunctions waaaay too much,
although it is a little more accurate. According to him, he never witnessed an AK malfunction. Ammo is lighter and easier
to carry than the 7.62mm, and seems that it will mess up
someone more than the 7.62 or 5.45.
His opinion: a Kalashnikov derivative chambered in 5.56 is about
the ideal service rifle.
Those of us who in other threads have espoused these same opinions may take comfort that this is coming from a former
Russian soldier, with military experience with both weapons.
