Both are two of the most popular firearms in the world, but one is Russian and one is American. Today there are countless manufacturers who produce variations of AK-47s and AR-15s. Which one will you choose?
The Beginning Of The AK-47
The AK-47 was designed at the end of World War II (1945) in Russia. The weapon was presented for military trials in 1946 and today the weapon is one of the most popular weapons in the world.
Mikhail Kalashnikov is the inventor of this particular rifle. The rifle is sometimes known by the name of its inventor, who was born to a family of farmers in Russia in 1919. Kalashnikov joined the army, had an illustrious career, and was injured in the Battle of Bryansk while fighting the Nazis. Kalashnikov perfected the design in 1947 and the rifles were launched as the Avtomat Kalashnikov.
Why People Love The AK-47
The AK-47 is simple, rugged, and durable. It rarely gets jammed and itäó»s the ideal weapon for warfare. The major selling points of the AK-47 include simplicity, reliability, and easy to use and repair. Unfortunately, AK-47s arenäó»t perfect and AK-47s are not the most accurate weapons. Accessories, like magazine loader, adjustable trigger, adjustable stock, rails, and optics can greatly improve the accuracy of the AK-47.
AK-47s are useful in relatively close-range combat situations instead of distant fights. The biggest advantage is its ease of operation and ability to take a beating. Some of the most popular varieties include: Century International Arms RAS47 7.62 x 39 mm Semi-Auto AK-47/AKM Style Rifle, Magpul Zhukov S Stock for AK-47 Rifles, Molot VEPR 7.62 x 54 R Semi-Auto 23.2äó rifle, and IO Inc AKM247T 7.62 x 39 mm AK Pattern Semi-Auto Rifle.

The Beginning Of The AR-15
The AR-15 was first built in the 1950s by a former Marine named Eugene M. Stoner. Mr. Stoner was the lead gun designer at the ArmaLite Division of the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation.
Unlike other rifles manufactured from metal and wood, the AR-15 was unusual because it was made from lightweight plastics and aluminum. Also, it shot .223-caliber bullets, which were different from what typical rifles shot at the time.
In the 1960s, the Pentagon, under the direction of Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara, bought AR-15s in bulk and the name of the weapon was changed to M-16. The weapons became standard issue for American Ground Troops in Vietnam.
At the same time, a civilian version of the rifle, one that was semi-automatic and not automatic, became available for purchase in the U.S. By the 1980s, the AR-15, along with AK-47s and the many descendants of both firearms, were well known throughout the world. Today, dozens of companies manufacture their own version of AR-15s and these weapons continue to be central to almost every war.
The U.S. government doesnäó»t keep track of how many AR-15s are made, but gun experts estimate there are nearly 7 million AR-15s in rifle racks in gun safes today.
Why People Love The AR-15
AR-15s have gas-operated systems, which makes them fast and accurate. An experienced shooter can shoot as many as 8 round per second with an AR-15. These firearms are lightweight, because they are made from plastic and aluminum. Plus, theyäó»re small. This makes them easy to carry around while hunting and maneuverable for any type of situation.
You can easily accessorize your AR-15 with custom add-ons like flashlights, infrared scopes, and a variety of grips. According to a survey put out by the National Shooting Sports Foundation in 2010, owners of AR-15s typically own 3 different versions of AR-15s and spend more than $400 on accessories for each weapon.
The fully automatic version of the AR-15, the M-16, was introduced by the United States military during the Vietnam War. AR-15s are semi-automatic, which means you must squeeze the trigger for every bullet. In many ways, AR-15s symbolize America. AR-15s are the weapons that our military troops carry and the firearms are manufactured in the states.
