    Hey guys...

    just checking out this video on youtube AK vs M16. Watch the barrel on the AK when the guy goes ful auto with it. It looks like it's made of rubber or something. I had no idea a 16 inch barrel would flex so much.

    In 7.62x39, there actually isn't very much barrel there. It's quite thin.

    Look at a 5.45 or 5.56, and you'll likely see a lot less flex.

    I was actually thinking of getting an AK until I saw how inaccurate that one was. Never came close to the bull even on his first shots in a string.

    Look at an AK-74 if you want an AK that performs more like an AR.
