The guy is right. The AK is so much better.

Please consider the purpose of the AK versus the M16.
These weapons are not designed for same type of soldier.
The soviet army for whom the weapon was originally designed needed a weapon that did not require intensive technical maintenance and could be used by minimally trained conscripts to produce a great volume of fire.
It is far less accurate than the M16. It is not as good
as the M16 in most aspects except for two: Easier to maintain and easier to mass produce.
The AK was designed for those not well trained and not well supported.
trained for maintaining complex weapons. The M16 is a better weapon but it needs more maintenance. If you want better weapon performance you need M16 with WELL-TRAINED troops. Jihad monkeys without much time to train would quickly find an M16 about as useful as 2x4. Well-trained US Soldier or Marine w/an M16 is a superior warrior with a superior weapon.

I agree. I wasn't the only one who put aside my M-16 when I got my hands on an AK-47 w/a banana clip in Vietnam.
