So I want to have a little debate here about the pros and cons of American made military rifles vs. non-American made military rifles. Such as the M16, M1 Carbine, M1 Garand, M14, M4, etc, etc, as opposed to non-American made such as the AK-47, AKM, AK-74, the Chinese copies, the 5.56 chambered AK-styles, other styles of assault rifles that aren't the usual US-spec or Russian-spec arms. Which is better in certain ways? Which is not better in certain ways? Which do you prefer? Let's just keep it clean and friendly please. Doesn't necessarily have to be absolutely "rifles" either. Let's discuss the assault rifles/machine guns too. Like the M60, as opposed to like the RPK. Which do you think is the best assault rifle? Which is the best plain old rifle? Which is the best machine gun? Whoops. Just noticed I put this in the wrong section if the moderator wouldn't mind moving it to the correct one. Thanks.
