AK.  3rd option is either a Mini 14, or a Mini 30

For rugged reliability I agree, either the Mini-14 or AK.  Yes, the AR is more accurate.

Mini 14's are good if you have very large targets.

Give them an inch and eventually they'll become a ruler.

None of my AR's are 5.56/223    ;D
I don't have an AK but I want one...
Sorry, had to remove the list of firearms due to server overload. I hope you now have a more pleasant experience on this forum.

No thank you. Want to try my CZ P-01?

I think an M2 Browning on a pintle mount in the back of a Jeep would handle just about any situation one might encounter

Neither one of those.
Hated the M16 in the Army and AKs remind me of somebody's 8th grade shop project.
If I was to ever procure a MSR, it would be a VZ 58.

I take it you were in the 24th ID.  I was in the 24th in 1982 and 1983.  I bought my Mod B Uzi carbine in the Western Auto in Hinesville in 1983.

Back to the subject -- I like my vz 58V but it gets very hot quickly.

I've had three AK's, and none of them were very accurate, nor reliable.  I sold them, and have kept my Colt M4/6920.  It is very, very reliable, and will shoot sub MOA benchrested.  It is more ergonomic, than the AK, and mounting optics are a breeze.  I prefer the AR overall, but even like my Russian SKS's better than the AK.

As a platform I prefer the AKM. I own a Wasr 10/63 and a FEG AMD63 both of which are accurate enough and reliable. I still slightly prefer the VZ58 over the AK due to better ergonomics, last round hold open, non rotating bolt, and milled receiver. If I have to go into combat it's none of the above though, that's when I break out my HK91 clones in 308! G3s for life baby!

If you are going to change the rules and add in the HK91, then I will have to trump that with the "Right Arm of the Free World" - the FN-FAL.

 ;D Yes lol! We should totally do another topic about FAL vs G3 vs M14, the battle of the heavy weights! 762 Nato or go home baby!  ;)

The FAL is built like a tank.  At least mine is.

But it's also about as heavy as one  ???

I really enjoy my Colt LE6920.  Accurate, reliable, easy to handle, and I know the AR15/M16 platform very well.
