Re: American vs. non-American
G3, M14, Fn Fal. These are in a class by themselves. Top of the list as far as i am concerned. G3 being on top for me.
The ak47 to me represents our foes. Not that i would not use one in a pinch but it would be last thing avaliable. It demands respect for what it is and i understand many people enjoy shooting them here in America. Strange hugh? However I personally hate the damn thing.
My take on the mini 14 is that it is a great gun for putting ammo down range. Not all that accurate but it will eat anything. You dont even have to trim your cases just reload till the necks burn out and the gun will shoot.
AR's can be quirky but when you get a good one it is real nice.
sl8 german manufacturer by hk, daw gone good rifle.
