Re: American vs. non-American
Right now Heckler & Koch have just revolutionized the M-16 platform.
The 416 & 417 flat out make the M-16/AR15 OBSOLETE.
As they have the beat-me whip-me capability of AK-47's, yet still have the precision of the best M-16/AR-15's out there.
Once you seen the vid on the H&K website...you know the debate over M-16 vs AK-47 is OVER.
The answer is now NIETHER, get a HK 416/417.
A gun should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.
