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.
